So Boston is expecting a winter storm today that will dump between 6-8 inches on the entire state. And hey, guess what?
And guess what else?
We're having a New Years Eve party tonight! With 12 adults and 12 children.
Did I mention I'm working? (Note to self: Do NOT work on Christmas Eve or New Years Eve in 2009.)
My conundrum (great word!) was whether to drive or take the train this morning.
Taking the train would eliminate my stress about driving (although I would still have to drive myself home from the train station), but then I'm tied to the train schedule. What if they let me out of work at 12:30? I can't catch the next train until 2:40! Grrr... AND the train isn't exactly RELIABLE. It's the opposite. A flake of snow is pretty much a guaranteed "weather delay" on the schedule.
So just drive myself, right? Then I'm free to leave whenever I can.
Then the issue was whether to take the car or the SUV. I'm used to driving the car. I drive it everyday. But the SUV is much better in the snow, obvs. But I feel more comfortable in the car. I know how to handle it.
My darling loving Hubby's take on it was, "Well, if you get in an accident, I'd rather you crash the car, not the Yukon. So take the car."
That, right there, my friends, is TRUE LOVE.
(So I'm here at work. I drove the car and parked in the underground garage instead of my usual outdoor spot. The gas tank is filled. I have a shovel in the backseat. I'm wearing my Uggs. BRING IT ON, MOTHER NATURE.)
(Famous last words, right? Shit.)
(Happy New Year!)
