It is snowing. Again.

I am so sick of winter. And even worse, it's snowing all the way down to NC and Kentucky, the same way I am driving in LESS THAN 2 WEEKS. Arrgghhh..
My flowers are already coming up and are now under a cover of snow, which is good since it protects them from the cold and they thrive every year. But I am sick of winter.

I wonder if I should pick out an alternate route just in case I hit NC and it's still crap on the roads? It normally wouldn't bother me, but I am having all new tires put on her car and they are not all season or snow tires. She's in CA, so I put summer tires on that have great water treads. What a pain in my arse.
I really need to get going on packing the stuff in her room. Books, books and more books and see if I can find a guitar case for one of hers. I am taking them with me- easier than sending them. And anything else I can stuff in the car that I think she can use (or I don't want to look at anymore).
I have a box of food to send out to her today. Seems her "friends" in the dorm don't want to drive her to the store, even after they have offered. I get tired of people who have the maturity level of a tween. Unlike her, who is working hard to get good grades, most of them are too busy partying and disturbing others. I think waiting to go away to college was a good idea. More kids should try it instead of running off to be on their own and not knowing how to act like an adult.
I will be glad once she has her car there and can make friends with people her age and maturity level. I know these 3 months have been hard on her, but it is almost over. Daily count downs have begun but the frustration level of being stuck in the dorm is mounting. I can tell by the phone calls and IM's and texts and facebook but that is ok, I am a mom, I can handle anything, especially for my kid

Two weeks alone, two weeks alone.... my mantra.


  1. People keep talking about this 'snow'. Lucky for me we don't have that here. Doesn't keep me from complaining about the cold temp though. After all I'm a tropical girl.

  2. Don't worry too much about the weather in NC. It may be flurrying today but the forecast for next weekend is sunny and 70 which is just as or more likely than bad weather this time of year. Looking forward to seeing you!

  3. Yes, the 10 day forcasts for the trip are looking good so far.

    We ended up with about 6 inches of the fluffy stuff so it won't stay long. It's the wind that is the killer cold though. Ick.
