Saw this sign first thing this morning when I signed on to Pinterest. Yoda it is true what people say about you, you know everything. I had one of the crappiest, craptastic days yesterday and I really needed Yoda to hit me with these words of wisdom.
*disclaimer if you don’t like the word crap then you might want to walk away from this post now because I use it a lot. I did use the other word in my first draft but I remember my mother reads this blog and I didn’t want to have one of those “your language” conversations today!
The crap started to fall around 8:30 am. My husband called me from the County Courthouse to let me know that he totally forgot to pay his speeding ticket the day before and now they were going to charge him an extra $50 for being
a day 8 hours late. Well crap JoJo! I hired the lawyer for you, I took care of all the details so you wouldn’t have to go to court all you had to do is make the payment within 20 days. That is just freaking awesome!
I then went to work where a co-worker pretty much “put me in my place” via a crappy email that went to our entire department. I use the quotes because it was so annoying that is was amusing. I want go into details because I am really trying not to blog about my job but honestly I feel a post coming on soon. . . . . .
Around lunch time I headed out to the post office and got lost. Stupid, crappy, small towns.
Finally around 3 my mom called to tell me that Aubrey would be staying with her. Then JoJo followed that phone call to let me know he had practice. Could it be? Do I have a night to myself? YES!! I was going to go for a run, cook what I WANTED to eat and then catch up on that list of to do items.
Well crap . .
As soon as I pulled into the driveway the neighbor across the street came over and asked if I could watch her daughter. The oldest daughter was suppose to watch her but she stayed after school for some function and my neighbor had 15minutes to get to class. So I put all my plans on hold and I watched the kid. About an hour later the oldest daughter came home and asked if I could take them to get some dinner. I said sure I have to go to the grocery store anyway!
While checking out my phone rings and I send it to voicemail. I hate being one of those people who talk while ordering or checking out. Then it rings again and again and again. Finally I answered it. It was JoJo and the car won’t run.
“The car won’t run, it’s like it is stuck in 3rd gear.”
So I called my sister who was on her way to my house anyway and she agrees to run by and pick him up and bring him home. When they get to the house he asks “where is the spare key”
“Where is the spare key.”
“Umm yeah we don’t have one of those, why?” He locked the key inside the car.
At the point I was done! My sister agreed to let us keep her car overnight so he could drive it to work the next day and I wouldn’t have to get up at 4am. I took her back to her house and something inside me told me – ride by and check the doors just to make sure they are locked. So I did.
Not only were the doors locked but he had left the lights on. We had automatic lights so I couldn’t figure out how he left them on. He had put the key in the ignition and turned it back one time to roll up the windows and then locked the doors and the key in the car. So not only were the lights on but the car was on with the keys locked inside.
At that point he came and waited for AAA and I went home and went to bed.
