I am hanging in there … we keep going out trying to get my car dug out of the snow and ice storm from more than a week ago … it is not happening. My snow plow guy hurt his back .. right before the end of his jobs … so we didn’t get plowed. Once I found out, we hired a neighbor to dig us out, but that didn’t happen well at all. Within a few a few hours it was ice and we are still paying the consequences.

People sometimes wonder why I try to stay on top of things … and this is exactly why. Yesterday we went out again with the ice chopper and shovels .. and now Susan can get out of her car on the driver’s side of the car … big improvement with her arthritis! And we got enough ice chopped so the trash barrels can get dragged to the curb.
We worked and worked to get my car out … but we can’t get enough ice chopped to free up the car. I am just hoping that it doesn’t snow before we get this resolved. Having a chronic physical illness, I have had to depend on others a lot to help me through the years. It has also given me a keen appreciation for looking down the road to make life easier for myself and others. And sometimes I have to just let things play out … even though solutions are obvious to me … I can’t prevent problems even though they impact me too.
I am working to stay in the flow and enjoy life … many have had the flu around here .. and I haven’t been bitten … so hey, I am lucky!! Next weekend it is supposed to be warm again and perhaps we will go chop, chopping again! I am tired so not keeping up with everything. A lot of green local stuff I need to do … so working to stay relaxed and in the flow. Take care!
