Near-death experience. okay, not really.

So...

Today I am out in the f-ree-zing cold pumping some gas.

First, I thought I was going to pass out from the pain in my fingers (no gloves).

Then, I realized that I was getting sleepy... "oh, no!" I thought.

They say when you get sleepy, you are freezing to death and are near the end.

I turned and mouthed my goodbyes to the 3 oblivious little girls in the van, tears streaming down my cheeks, so much I want to say ...

And then the pump clicked and I was finished.

I slide back in the seat, keenly aware that I had just cheated death.

And, I may have exaggerated the tears part.

You are officially a mess...

It's super cold here, too, but I do have a built-in heater around my middle.
