So please, a little respect. For I am Costanza: Lord of the Idiots.
Not only do I get my car stuck in the driveway on the way home from picking up my daughter from school, and have to spend a half hour to dig it out.  Naw.  That's easy stuff.

I get my car stuck in the same driveway on the way out, on the way to take my daughter to gymnastics.

And then, after fighting for half an hour to get it out, when we get back in the car, hoping to make it for at least some gymnastics time, I get it stuck in the driveway again, for another ten minutes.

So, no gymnastics, and a messy house, and a thousand things that I ought to do, for which I have no drive or motivation.

I hate this feeling.  "Frustrated" doesn't begin to cover it.

We all still KNOW that you are a marvelous person, husband, father, friend, professor and instructor.

But a lousy driver. :(

Seriously, though ... thanks for the perspective.

What asterapallas said.

Seriously. Winter happens. I hope today is better. And I hope the weather is better too.

Yeah, today's a bit better.

It's just ... of all the things I do, I am completely and utterly inept when it comes to mechanical skills. I mean, I feel like it's a great triumph when I manage to replace a light fixture. And stuff like this just reinforces those feelings. Luckily, I have a wife who is a mechanical genius.

So ... it's just hard when I get a reminder of my own inadequacy right smack in my face. Especially when others are affected.

But I'll live.

Sounds like you need a snow blower!

Got one. But blowers are of limited use on a gravel driveway ... you still have to leave a layer of perma-pack snow, which is what I was digging into yesterday ...
