I am a procrastinator..have been all my life and I don’t think I will ever change in the years to come. So this year I was so proud that I had 95% of my Christmas shopping done a few weeks before Christmas. I had made plans to go to Columbus on December 21 finish the remaining 5% and stay at my parents for the night.

I left my house at 3:45 and it was starting to snow. A half hour into my drive on interstate 70, traffic came to a dead stop. After sitting on the highway and not moving for an hour I called my mom and told her I would not make it to Columbus in time to shop, and if it kept on snowing I wouldn’t come at all. The next hour I made a few phone calls listened to XM and just tried not to be frustrated that I had not moved. The next hour and the fact that my speedometer still looked like this..


I was slowly starting to lose my patience. Then I realized that I do have my phone and even though I am in my car on the interstate, it would be ok to Internet shop since I was not moving.

I got my sister in law one of these


The new iPod shuffle !
I am thankful I am an amazon prime member so I should have it by Monday.

And my other sister in law a cute pair of texting gloves and my mom a pair of shoes.. I am also thankful for being a Zappos VIP customer.

Although I didn’t move for 3 1/2 hours I did make good use of my time. Finally traffic started moving and I made it back home 4 1/2 hours after I left. I found out later that two semis were jackknifed and blocking all thee lanes thirty miles ahead of where I was stopped.

Ryan welcomed me home with this..


Cheers to Ryan!!!
