{Post 1,325} Not Much Going On

I left my sister's house in Ohio on Monday morning.  There was a lot of bad weather predicted for Tuesday in NC, and I didn't want to be driving into it tired from a long drive.

I get so sleepy when I drive.  My car got stuck at the bottom of her seriously long driveway the night before.  I had planned to leave as early as I could on Monday to get an early start on my trip.

Unfortunately, one of the items I left in the car were my ear plugs.  As a result, I only slept about 45 minutes all night.  It was one of those nights of insomnia.  I didn't want to wake up my sister at that hour, but she had made me promise I would not leave without saying goodbye.  At 4 AM I left for NC.  The first couple hours were pretty slow going because of the snow.  Around 6 I pulled over and slept 90 minutes.  I drove a few more hours and then slept for another 45 minutes.  Eventually I made it home.

The next day I spent shopping and stocking up for the storm that was coming the next day.  

Like much of the southeast, we are under the wraps of a lot of snow, sleet, and ice.  One great thing is that we have not lost power.  That is amazing because sometimes we lose power when it just RAINS!!

Above is our front yard yesterday early afternoon.  

Hope you are all doing well.

Snuggle up and quilt... I can just feel how tired you must have been. It's been a weird weather winter. this year.

I'm glad you made it home safely. I understand the sleep issues because both DH and I have them. It's no fun - especially when you are not at home and maybe can't wander around the house in the dark. I'm in the Chicago area now with my sister as she had outpatient surgery yesterday. She's doing fine and I will go home Monday or Tuesday. I fly standby, so I may have to wait in the airport to get on a flight.

Glad you made it home safe! I get really sleepy when driving too...would not be good with only 45 minutes of sleep!
