Snow Day

It is a snow day here, and I'm up at 5:00 am. What is up with that? Oh well, I'll be sure to take an extra nap this afternoon to make up for it. :)

Last night I went to the grocery store...just in case. I bought a few things since I was already running low on many items. (Sorry, no stereotypical bread and milk for the storm!) There was a woman there who was SSMO. She was in a motorized wheelchair, and extremely large. I caught myself staring a few times, even though specifically trying not to stare. However, I was staring for a different reason than most. I kept thinking to myself, how long before I would have been that woman? The question was so haunting, because it hit so close to home.

Well, going to go back to bed here. I'll post more later. I'll get a picture taken this weekend when we go see Wicked to put up for 22 months post-op.
