Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr attitude

Today did not start out positive. I was on time until I got to the car. The doors were frozen shut.

This is an annoyance but it's more so when opening the doors if they aren't frozen shut causes pain in my wrists and thumbs. Trying to get them open this morning nearly left me in tears.

Gratitude. Gratitude. Remember to practice gratitude. Shut up brain. I can't get into my car and I'm late for work. I poured the contents of my travel mug of tea around the driver's side door and it opened. The passenger side would not budge.

The windows were covered with frost which came off rather easily. Scraping is mildly painful but I can do it. I hefted everything over the center console and drove into the office with the defroster going full blast. I don't have that far of a drive so the passenger side door was still frozen when I got to the office. I did make myself another mug of tea. I'll be darned if I'm going to not have tea with me because the doors are frozen.

January is the coldest month, right? We are over half-way through January, right? So, in theory, this could be the only time I have to worry about frozen doors, right? Ice storms will be problematic. Opening doors has always been a problem if they get iced over. Scraping the windows will be painful when it's ice I'll have to remove.

Gratitude. The problem I thought I was going to face when I finally got in is not as bad as it looked last night. There is bright sunshine this morning so, by noon, the passenger door will be unfrozen naturally. It's okay. Breathe.

March 20th can't come soon enough.

Beverage:  Edinburgh's Finest tea
