Have you ever had an urge to do something really spontaneous? Well, since I was sure that we had no power/heating, and and we were about to be snowed in, and my mom was already going to Miami for a workshop/seminar, I decided that I would go with her.

Have you ever been told that if you really want to be impulsive to go to the airport with a suitcase and get on the first plane out? Yeah, well, the problem with that is that there are never any tickets left.

An hour before the flight I was packing my suitcase to get to 80 degree Miami, instead of 25 degree Kentuckiana while my parents tried to book a flight for me and my sisters. I came downstairs to find that I couldn't go. Needless to say, I was sad. I almost got a flight to Savannah, though, where a friend of mine moved to, but there weren't enough seats for my sisters. :(

A Life Update: I have no electricity. I have no heating. I have no internet. I have no school (I'm okay with that part!). I won't for the next 6-9 days (I'm sure about the school part, though). This morning, my sister was going stir crazy so she went outside and chipped away at the ice and snow. Eventually, she succeeded and we ran for heat and internet at some family's place. Even though, I'm starting to feel that cabin fever.

Aw, that's too bad you have no electricity or heat! Are you going to stay at your friends the whole time?
I hope your electricity comes on soon. Maybe before it's scheduled to? That happened to me once.

No school? No electristy? No internet? I'd go crazy right then and there. You are much tougher than I am. I'm more use to sweltering 120 degree summers (well, at least inthe Dallas Walmart parking lots it would get to 120. It is always hotter at Walmart then any other place.) Anyway, good luck and I hope your mom can get back safely.

Luckily, my electricity came back yesterday and my mom was okay.
Unfortunately, my mom did not bring back a jar of Florida warmth and sunshine like she said she would.
Luckily (again), tomorrow will be my 7th day without school!
