Anyway if it is icy I'll skip the Downton Abbey viewing get together tonight and watch from my own living room. I hate driving on ice -- even if it is only 4 blocks. I guess I could walk but again, icy and late at night with no ferocious looking German Shepherd to protect me on the way home.
You are a wise woman.
I learned to think ahead when I got married and no longer had a maintenance guy to call if something broke... and we lived in hurricane country! I got myself educated pretty quick. Since then it's become second nature.
My mom has fallen a few times and it has greatly affected her life at this point. If I learned anything, it's to err on the side of caution as I get older.
