Enough of the white stuff already!

January 30, 2008

I barely made it home….again. Yesterday’s blizzard white out of a snow storm was bad enough, especially the way it snuck up on me while I was out–bam in the middle of the day. We have not felt like we needed an SUV these past years while living back in Utah. (I drive a very comfortable, very mommy, very American Chrysler mini-van thank you very much) I’ll admit it, we even poked a little fun at all the massive truck-suburbans on the road. NOT ANYMORE. Tonight again, this storm blew in (I swear) in the 15 minutes it took me to get to dance to pick up the mini-ballerinas. I attempted to avoid the steepest parts of the drive back home. But at the end I couldn’t avoid it. We live on some low foothills of the Salt Lake Valley. And the last hill before my road is always the worst until it is snowplowed. Now I don’t care what you say, in 15 minutes there ain’t no snowplows no way out on the one road I need. And of course with the ballet troupe of 7 year olds in the back, arguing over whether Hannah Montana’s real name is Miley Cyrus or not (And yes, that is another post) I have to drive further up the hill to one of the girls’ home. I had to inch the last 20 yards to that turn with my hazards on. And I will be reliving in my nightmares the part where I had to back track and come back DOWN the same stretch of hilly road, trying to keep it under 10 miles per hour to get home. Holy wow, slick.

I walked in the door and expecting a fight, I told 10yrold that the roads were awful and I didn’t dare go back out for her dance class. Her response, ‘alright’. I guess she wasn’t too bummed.

Still testing

I’m still not sure how I want this blog to work? Do you really write up a daily diary of all your crap for everyone in the world to view? What’s the real point of that? Some sort of Ego vs Id issue to work out? I think I just want to remember little snippets of my life–big and small, funny and awful. Then again, I have a hard time imagining my grandkids reading an ancient blog. ‘Come on Gram–don’t make me sit at that awful computer one more time! I would so much rather be jetting off on my personal flying craft to my virtual prom, thank you very much.’

I’m curious about what to do with all the old posts–I’m sure they will start piling up after only a few short months, much less years? I’ll have rows and rows of burned CDs, and then I’ll have to start worrying about how to back those up and keep them safe and what if computers go out of style, I’ll have to sell one of my children to pay to have all the CDs re-copied onto some new fancy-pantsy better than digital…thingy. And sheesh, saving all this stuff was supposed to be all about the kids wasn’t it?

This blogging stuff is harder than I thought. And this is only the second post in two months!
