What? It's April and this is my back yard!
I was so lucky to win a ticket to Creative Estates from So You Think Your Crafty. I haven't mentioned it because 1. Didn't want to rub it in your faces and 2. I didn't know if I could go I really wanted to but didn't know if I would be able to. I think I have told you all before that I have epilepsy, mine isn't bad actually quite mild and well controlled I haven't even had a seizure for at least six years. But the point I was trying to make is is that I don't drive far myself because of it. My husbands work schedule has been so crazy too, they have been throwing him all around. Well ended up he had to work but he talked me into driving myself down there. Talk about scary for someone who never drives very far, and lives in a small hick town. But I made it!
here is Shey B. and Tauni founders of the event doing giveaways.
Unfortunately Saturday I didn't go, that white stuff in the picture above I was worried about so I started for home first thing in the morning trying to beat it before it got too bad. I was trying to beat the rim area that usually gets really bad. I got to the little town just before the rim and it was saying 4-wheel drive or chains recommended. I had neither. The roads didn't look too bad so my husband said to just keep going and see. I made it to the bottom of the rim and my big suburban started to slide and it freaked me out, no way was I going through it. So I turned my big beast around and went back to the nearest town and called my husband and told him there was no way I was going to keep coming.
So what am I thankful for this week? My husband and my father-in-law who drove all the way to come and get me. They said the rim was awful when they made it to the top. There was a 4-wheel drive truck that had slid off, so I'm so glad that I hadn't tried going through it myself. There was a road grater grading the roads when they were on top so my husband drove the suburban back home. They had put down chemicals on the road that had melted the ice in like 30 minutes! Now why don't they do that in the first place before the roads get so bad?
Anyway sorry for all the rambling I am just so thankful for these two men putting their day on hold for me and coming to my rescue!
