Ah. Two extra hours. Two nice hours where all I really need to do is sit back and rest my head. All my favorite music at the tip of my fingers. Not a care in the world.|

I definitely did not need to spend nearly 3 hours getting to work this morning. Really. There were so many better things I could have been doing with my time. Including sleeping, since I didn't get home last night until 12:30 am. Damn snow.
