My kids don't have school today so getting up at 6am was NOT on my radar this morning. But, at 6am, I got a call from Darling Hubby asking me to turn on the news and find out about road and weather conditions. You see although we knew there was a chance of a mix of precip for this morning, we were not expecting two inches of the wet stuff stuck to everything (roads included), no plows to have been through, and such heavy snow that visibility was next to nothing. It took him 20 minutes just to drive the three miles from our house to the interstate where he finally pulled over to call me.
When I received his call, I immediately turned on the news,and turned on my laptop in an attempt to try to see how long this bout of snow would last and if the more readily used roads were clear yet.
And since I was now awake, and since I don't go back to sleep very well anymore once I have been woken up, I decided to just go ahead and get up for the day. At 6am.
But you know what just occurred to me? A whole hour after he woke me up with his phone call?? From his cell phone??? Which is a Blackberry????
Instead of calling me he could have simply looked up the very same information on his phone. Himself. Without any involvement from me.
I guess it's nice to be needed, right?
