Crazy chick on the highway

As I sat here tonight thinking about what I wanted to blog about I started replaying my day in my head. It suddenly occurred to me that someone out there might be blogging about ME tonight.

As I drove the long commute to Cleveland this morning I was ROCKIN'!! Will didn't have school but I was still scheduled to work & a long commute without Elmo DVDs meant I could actually jam to some music. After downing my usual 3 or 4 cans of Diet Mountain Dew I was a ball of energy racing down I77 North. I had my IPOD plugged into my car stereo and was blasting at a deafening level some of my "feel good" tunes. Now, some people might tap the steering wheel along to the beat or bob their head from side to side...not me...I was full-on dancing in my car and loving every minute of it.

Usually my long car rides with Will are a time for me to really think about everything that is going on in my life. As you can imagine, those aren't always the most uplifting thoughts, so on this particular morning I decided I was just going to be happy for the hour and a half that it would take me to get to work. I didn't want to think about the upcoming move or the kids' therapies or the problems I've been having with my prosthesis lately...I just wanted to escape for a little while and maybe give a few passing cars something interesting for once to text about - "just passed crazy chick on the highway." I knew my worries would still be there later but for the time being all I wanted to do was sing at the top of my lungs: "unskinny bop bop bop bop" - yep, Poison was my "happy pill" for the morning.
