While grocery shopping this afternoon I got a call from a co-worker informing me that I had to attend a training session this evening from 6 pm to 10 pm to get recertified for CPR and defensive driving. They gave us 3 hours notice! My boss has known about it since last week but forgot to mention it to us, the employees and she's called in sick yesterday and today! I was so mad un I was still steaming at 4 when a very nasty thunderstorm went thru here traveling @ 60 mph and that made me even madder because it meant leaving Charlie Girl alone and my big brave girl isn't afraid of much, but she is terrified of t-storms. I got dressed, left a stereo on for Charlie to help cover the noise of the storm, and off I went; cursing the whole way. As I was driving thru our woods I'm still cursing and thought...wouldn't it be nice if a big ol' tree fell across our road and I couldn't go to this *&^#!#* training. Well I rounded a curve and guess what? Thank you Mother Nature and thank you Mr. Cedar for giving your life for me! I took a pic of it with my phone and sent it to my SO. He called me and told me to turn around and go back to the house. I'm stuck here at home now until he gets off @ midnight and I couldn't be happier.
