Tomorrow is another day....

I left work a half hour early today to get to my meeting with a counselor from voc rehab. The purpose was to see how much money and services I could get for hearing aids... The result? Nada. Nilch. None. Absolutely NO money. Turns out that being a teacher in the state of north dakota... I make to much damn money. It's complete crap. From here.. I don't know what will happen.

From there, I went to the gym, hoping to run off some aggrevation. Got there. attempted to change (clothes were packed from monday night for spin and running yesterday that didn't happen), went to grab my sports bra... not there. Crap. Looking for socks. None. Double crap. By now I am just fuming and on the verge of tears. If it were nice (above freezing and minimal wind), I would have headed home, changed, and went out for a run. But no, according to the weather channel, it is 12 degrees but feels like -4 due to the nasty wind. Hell no.
View from apartment... some snow on ground from monday night's blow in... something coming in from the west... and weatherman says the it will get as cold as -26 with the wind ... damn.

I am staying home tonight.... and re-packing my bag for spin and running tomorrow night. This definitely calls for a small Tom and Jerry.....

Just relax... it will all work itself out. I hate when I get so mad I could cry- I know exactly how you were feeling and I feel your pain! I hope things are calming down a bit now.

I hope tomorrow is better!

Hey It's MN Runner. I'm at work so I can't remember my login but wanted to post as I may forget later. I have TONS of info to give you. My aunt works for Deaf and Hard of Hearing for the State of MN and does work in ND. I would like to pass on the info I have to you if I can email it? It's a lot. I can certainly post it on here, just wasn't sure space-wise if that would work. Let me know if you're interested. My email: ndelse@yahoo.com
Hope today goes better!

Oh, I sooo hate that...I've a few times left the sports bra behind, and that sends me home...cause you just wan't workout in a normal bra...yuck.

How was the tom and jerry? I only had them once, wasn't impressed, but it was free, so that helped!!

I'm a dummy. I was wondering what the Tom and Jerry was - then when Marcy said cocktail - the light in my head went on.

Damn. Hate days like that - I once went to pool with all my stuff I needed including an extra head cap, and guess what - I got completely undressed to NOT find my bathing suit in there. So, I went lap swimming naked.

j/k. I just hate those kinds of days, especially when you're "feeling" like working out.

so, that's what you ND folks call cold...

the same thing happened to me this week - showed up at the gym and realized I didn't have any socks! I should have just sucked it up and worn my crazy Christmas tree socks that I had worn under my boots that day, but I figured it was God's way of telling me to head home!

when all else fails, tri-again tomorrow!! I did that on a bike ride recently, within the hour I had to stop about 6 times for various problems with my clips and chain and the cold..then I had a fall and called it quits!
