Hells Bells


So, I decided to go to Idaho this weekend. I hadn't been since June and figured I needed to go see my star-athlete brother in action. He played well, except his team lost and he may or may not have broken the thumb on his already-broken hand. I had only planned on staying a day, but of course Mother Nature decided to unleash the kind of winter fury unseen for decades in that particular part of the state, effectively turning my car into a bump in over two feet of snow (see above pic. Yes, that's my car)and closing down the only roads back to Utah.
I mean seriously. It's not even Halloween. It's barely October. So after 34 board games, four movies, 24 extra hours and a car extraction process - which included my entire family, my best friend, who was also stuck there, and a loader, I made it to the freeway. And then I got pulled over for the 6th time this year. Thanks 2008. You're the best.

Yeah, 2008 and you = don't mix.
Oh, except for your awesome job with supercasual dress and that trip to the island paradise of Tonga.

Holy hell! Love it and hate it at the same time! You have the best-worst luck ever!

You are the only person I know whose luck goes year-by-year. How does this crap happen to you?

Tiff - 2008 has been a DOOZY for me too. CANNOT wait for it to end. We can compare stories later.
