Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

Photo Nov 12, 8 22 18 AM

Try to stay focused.
It’s not easy, with all these thoughts
Sprinting around in my head.
‘Round and ’round they go,
Never letting me go to bed.

Snow Day

This is day number three of staying indoors. Mother Nature just decided to drop a ton of snow our little town. So much snow! About a foot and a half is covering our yards and sidewalks. Not to mention all the packed-snow-turned-ice on the roads. For the last two days we’ve been instructed to stay indoors. Today we have been advised to not venture out for too long because of the low temperature and slick roads.

Who is their right mind would want to venture out in this stuff? Right!?

Well, I did. I was invited out to lunch by my roommate and a friend of ours. We made it to the store and to Subway to get our food. On our way home we thought that we were in the clear due to the fact that we made it to our destination.

Nope. We were SO wrong.

We came upon a four-way stop and the breaks decided to lock up on us. We then start the slide of doom. The idiot in front of us couldn’t get traction (although I didn’t see this tires trying all that hard) and just kind of sat there waiting for us to crash into him. I think he did it on purpose but hey, not my call. As you have gathered, my friend’s car punched the old man’s. To prove how much of an idiot we dealt with, the owner of the giant SUV we hit decided to park in the middle of the (extremely) slick intersection to wait for the police officer to (1.) come, (2.) fill out the report and take pictures, and (3.) release us. I sometimes wonder how people have survived this long in the world.  At least he had his flashers on.

We are all fine, but my friend’s car is not. She has to pay for some repairs. The idiotic old man is ok and so is his vehicle (not even a tiny scratch on it).

But I guess some good can come out of all this. Just look at this cool shark! Yes, I said shark. You’ll see why. 🙂

Father at 54

I became a first-time father at 54. Now I'm a single father of two young children. It's a road less traveled. I'm a little scared.
