winter turns to ~ well, winter and things really could be better
probably because i was so bummed out from being sick, i spent Saturday at home, watching TV, reading, napping, and generally feeling homesick. at about 5pm i mustered up the energy to go to the grocery store and actually took the dogs with me to see if we could find a spot to let them run around for a few minutes and get some fresh air and stretch their legs. we found a large park on the east side of town, but the weather was seriously so nasty (40mph steady wind with gusts that were knocking me off balance, intermittent snow showers, and temps in the 30s) that i didn't even let them out of the car. they were momentarily bummed, but they got over it quickly.
it was pretty much a white-out up on the ridge, so i only went for an hour before i headed home. what a pisser of a weekend. i still feel like crying and i just want to go home to Salt Lake. and if i find the guy who backed into my car (no, i'm not going to punch him, although i want to... ) i'll forward his license plate info on to the police department. looks like i'll probably be paying the deductible on this one. i feel like packing up my car and driving away ~ not looking back. 7 more weeks to go here, and they can't go by soon enough.
