I got my car stuck in the snow today.  We now have 3 vehicles with only a two car garage so since I'm not working, mine sits outside because by the time I leave the house it has warmed some and is light outside.  When I went to back into the driveway I got my front wheels down a small embankment into the neighbors yard & was stuck.  Since I wasn't in anyones way I just got out and came into the house.  My husband & son got it out when they got home from work.
Yesterday my back was sore so I heated up my rice bag, laid down on the bed, put a dvd into the player and placed the heated bag under my lumbar area.  At some point in time I fell asleep.  I was dreaming and my sister was there, we were teenagers in the dream.  I kept telling her my back hurt but she wouldn't listen.  She just kept making me walk faster to get home.  When I woke up it was the cold rice bag that was hurting my back, I hadn't moved at all. 
Sometimes I have the worst luck or do just some really dumb things.  Hubby got a real kick out of the rice bag story though.  He was real sweet about getting the car unstuck too.  Haven't quite figured it out yet but he thinks the stuff I do is cute.
Guess this would have been a good koffee klutch topic.  Does anyone else here do dumb or silly things?

My other nickname is Grace. It's been a family tradition among the women in our family for generations! I have been to the ER to get something or another so many times, they accused my husband of mistreating me! LOL! There is no way anyone could get further than the truth on that one. He is such a gentle soul. Be careful!! I think that's all I can say!

If you count things like climbing into a kids roller coaster, playing tag, or trying to do a weeks worth of cleaning in one day dumb then yes I do plenty of dumb things.

Sorry to hear about your ordeal with the car! Driving in winter can be scary at times! I've had my fair share of little incidents (fortunately they've never been anything worth worrying about). When I was in high school I took this one-day course at a local motor-way & among other things, they taught me some really helpful techniques for pulling out of skids. They had us driving these big trucks really fast on a wet circular course so that the trucks would skid & you'd literally have to pull yourself out of a 360 or worse! The technique works every time! It makes me much more confident when I head out on snowy roads.

Glad you were able to get the car out!
