Why I'm a Wimp.

I live in Ohio. It snows here. Frequently. However, I have never managed to learn how to drive in it without completely freaking out. I had so much anxiety driving home from work today that I was literally shaking and felt like my heart was beating outside of my chest. And the roads were not even that terrible, although still slushy and slick. I am ashamed to admit that I am not a snow driver, nor will I ever be. I am actually surprised I made it up the driveway today. Most of the time I don't. I then shoveled so that my husband can get up it when he gets home. Although he never really seems to have a problem with that. Hmm. Shoveling seemed to help relieve some of my anxiety though! I suppose manual labor will do that.

This is me shoveling. We also own a cheap shovel. That's my fault.
Does anyone else freak out if they have to drive in the snow? Please tell me it's not just me!


  1. Yes! I'm convinced because my mom never let me drive when it was snowing, that now i'm doomed for life when it comes to driving in the winter -- it makes me panic!

  2. That's exactly what happened to me! It's totally cool to blame our moms :)
