So I go out to the Si this morning to drive my lazy ass to work and guess what? Doors are frozen shut. "Oh yeah," I think to myself. "I washed my car last night.... DUMBASS!"
But I was getting close to having the driver's side door pulled free -- just one more tug.
CRAAAAACK -- and the handle of the door breaks away in my hand. Looks like a no go on the car. So I'm on the bike today -- a forced commute, you could say. It'll be a good thing, I'm sure -- and I've got long johns on, so I won't totally freeze.
Luckily Laura hadn't left for work yet, so I did get a ride into the office. Man, I've turned into a cold weather wuss!! I need to work on that... cuz I still love riding my bike!
And through this, I got to be reminded of how thankful I am for having Laura as my wife. Her compassion and empathy are about the only things that allow me to live with myself sometimes. It's easy to take for granted sometimes, but when I'm mentally beating myself up over my crisis-of-the-moment, hearing her calmly tell me that it's alright, and that we can work through it makes all the difference in the world.
What a morning... I hope your day started off smoother than mine did!
