stranded.....

I can't believe it...I am stuck in London today!

It is Monday but seeing that this is such a short week I decided that I would work today. Well as I went to sleep last night I thought to myself what if I don't get in tomorrow....I was getting myself all worked up and there just wasn't anything I could do about it at that point.
So I set the alarm for 5:30 and hoped for the best.

At about 4am I awoke and looked out the window and yes it was snowing but I thought it would be fine...the roads surely aren't closed so I will get up there....I layed back down and must have fallen asleep...awoke again to the news at 5:30...perfect I thought they said yes it was snowing but nothing too bad and there were no traffic concerns to speak of. I jumped out of bed and headed down for my workout came back up around 6:15 and thought I would check the situation out before I jumped into the shower.........WELL was I surprised.......number 4 was closed from Arva all the way up to the North Pole I think....lol

UGGGGhhhh not good...I was freaking out....driving Terry crazy...with all my swearing and moaning and groaning about not being able to get to work...trying to think of all my alternatives...I could take the second....I will wait it out until it clears up....I will call all my first people...well it turns out that I didn't actually do any of those things.......

Rita went into work early(thank goodness for her) and made my first few phone calls of the day..telling my clients that I may be in later but maybe not...I would work next Monday to make up for it or they could see another stylist so they would be done by Christmas.....

So I headed out around 10:15 to go to Exeter...someone had called to tell my the roads were back open...so I immediately headed out..........only to be stopped by the police at Arva...I'm not sure why, I think they had this sneaky suspicion that I was a lunatic Hair Dresser from Exciter that NEEDED to get to work....the women were counting on me...Christmas was going to be looking pretty ugly in Huron County if I didn't get up there.......well that did not matter to them (sorry ladies) they turned me around and kindly reminded me that I would be charged and would have NO insurance if I crossed that barricade....

hmmpph I thought well come on, it must be opening soon if the website says 4 is open...so I thought I would go to the grocery store for a bit and then head back and see if there were any changes...........NOPE NO CHANGE....the same police man was still even there shaking his head at me as I sheepishly turned my white Escape around and headed back for the big city....hmmpphhh

Through all of this I was thinking Michelle you are crazy it isn't worth it...no one's hair is worth you risking your life....yes I truly must have been thinking this or I would have been on a side road headed for town....lol But honestly as my Mom and Brother said you can get up there to get every one's hair done today or you could not get up there ever again....and that would really suck....:) point well taken...it just isn't worth it...

I do apologize to everyone but that is the great thing about having stylist's working with me that I trust.....everyone that needs to can be accommodated and if they can wait a mere 7 more days I will take care of them....and you know what everyone understood.!!

All that worrying for nothing....sorry Terry...thanks for being patient with me and no we don't have to move to Exciter anymore....lol
stay safe today everyone
