A Sudden Stop

Over the last two weeks, I have spent three days snowed in at my house and four days snowed in with my ex-husband and cranky toddler in a very small room. All the while waiting on my flight to Louisiana to be rescheduled for the umpteenth time.

My week long trip to see family ended up being only three days. Plus I had tons of school work I could have been doing had I had Internet access. I had a lot of stuff I needed to do! I was extremely frustrated with my situation. But I decided to remain calm and kind.

What else could I have done? Nothing. It was what it was. So there was no need to get upset about something out of my control.

This sudden stop, this slamming on the brakes, really helped me refocus and re-prioritize things. If you were recently snowed in with a huge list of urgent "to-dos" how did you handle things?
