I just did something stupid

We have an ice storm moving in, but I really needed to run into town for a couple of things I forgot just in case we loose power. We hadn't gotten any precip yet when I left the house, but before we made it to town five miles away, the roads were getting slick. I didn't even go all the way into town. We turned around and headed home. I knew better than to go out, but convinced myself I could beat the storm. Not a smart move.

I am so worried about Wade today. He drives a truck, and is still 150 miles from home. His company is really good about not sending them out when the roads are bad, unless there is something that just has to be done. I'll be anxious until he pulls into the yard.

Living in BFE

I love that I live in a town of about 60 people. I love that I know every single person within a 5 mile radius of my house. What I don't love is having to drive to three different towns to get a prescription. My husband went to our doctor this morning in a town about 30 miles away. He didn't have time to go get his prescription, so I offered to do it. I drove the closest town, about 10 minutes away, and the pharmacy didn't carry what he needed. I had to drive an hour in the other direction to go get his medicine. It has been a frustrating day.
