Stuck at home
Thursday, April 18, 2013
How about this rain??! I am in the Chicago area and ho boy has it been horrible the last 36 hours. We have a ditch in the back of our house that goes down two or three feet, it is filled with water. A duck swam by a couple hours ago. It was pretty funny.
I tried to get to work this morning despite each end of my street being under water. It amazed me how people were flying around me. It was dark, horrendous downpour of rain limiting visibility. You couldn't really see the standing water until you were in it. Someone flew around me hit high-standing water then tried to swerve back in my lane and almost hit me. REALLY?!
I finally turned around and went back home. I worked from home for four hours, taking a break now. I'm watching the news and seeing all of the pictures and footage of the expressways and sink holes. Eeeyikes!
It will be a challenging day. I eat better at work than I do at home. I must stick to the healthy lunch and snacks I put together for work. My yellow lab is being very vocal. It's daytime, I'm home, that means she gets a walk. She's quite mad at me right now.
After this load of laundry, I'll hit the elliptical and then some SP videos. Just thought I'd blog to keep me focused.
I hope everyone is having a good day!
