I drove to Ann Arbor today for my appointment with Dr. PJ and I am NOT even joking- I saw probably 10 MAJOR accidents. Not to mention countless cars on the side of the road, flipped, flopped and stuck. It was a nightmare. How ironic though... I was driving to my ANXIETY appointment and the entire way there I am having this panic attack- it got so bad that I started dry heaving. Dry heaving+ tingling fingers + pounding heart + shortness of breath + icy roads= DANGER.
It is only by the grace of our good Lord that I got there safely. And maybe Jimmy Buffett. I cranked me up some Jimbo and tried my hardest to picture myself on a beach with a margarita in hand... it helped... but still, MY GOSH it was horrible.
Props to ALL rescue workers around here- I seriously saw about 30 police cars and ambulances and countless fire trucks all out on the roads, doing their thing.
Of course when I arrived back home I sat down and had a serious talk with Ryan about how for the sake of our safety and MY sanity and health, we need to move south. It is no longer a "comfort" thing- this is ridiculous. I can handle hurricanes and monsoons... ice storms, snow and negative degree weather??? NOPE. NOT ME.
When I got home, I took a long hot shower, trying desperately to calm down- I did so by sitting down and reading my gossip mags. :) Thank goodness for that Britney Spears and her custody problems- she can always get my mind off of anxious stuff! :)
Also, this has nothing to do with anything relevant to what I just blogged about, but since my recent obsession with Adam Sandler, I've watched any and every movie he's ever been in and I am yes, ASHAMED to admit it, but I JUST watched "Wedding Singer" for the first time EVER last night. I cried during the "Grow Old" song. What a great movie... :) Why oh why can't my husband write me some stupid cute song like that? He plays me songs all the time- AND he writes songs, but he won't play HIS written songs for me... strange. Maybe someday I'll crack that egg.
Alright- drive safely and good luck with wrapping, baking and all of that other holilday stuff! :)
