So, here's my story. All week long I have thought that it is Friday. Today, it finally was!!! Yay! Well...not really. Started off poorly. I got out of the house heading to work later than planned because I needed to fold the laundry that was in the dryer (HATE to iron). Then, I got caught behind slow dang people all the way in. Cranky...
Went to KFC with my coupon for free grilled chicken (the one from Oprah.com) and they wouldn't honor it! Something about bogus coupons so they wouldn't take anyone's! Fine...I got a "rain check" and will give them a piece of my mind when I send that in. Went ahead and ordered the chicken and biscuit only, no sides. They charged me for the sides! FINE. I had corn on the cob and a side salad. Didn't eat either one cos I really only wanted the chicken and biscuit, but I have snacks for later. Fine...
About 4:30 I get an e-mail that someone had finished their part of a project they were working on for me (YAY!!! ) Got another e-mail about 8 minutes later saying that some of the material used to complete the project was expired - read BAD!!! AND, they knew about it but didn't pull the material off the floor so it wouldn't be used!!!! Spent an hour trying to figure out what to do and still don't have a solution. Will dig into it more on Monday.
On the way home, try calling DH back (he had called in the middle of my "crisis") and he never answers. I'm about 3 miles from home and my truck dies. Just dies. And DH isn't answering the phone....Luckily, the kids do answer and Dad is home. He comes gets me and we figure out that the timing belt broke and it will cost $225 to get it fixed. (Mechanic friend!) He takes me home so I can make dinner. He heads back to wait for the tow truck.
I NEED a vehicle tomorrow. So does DH. We end up going into Boise to rent a car for me to drive tomorrow. Luckily it's only $17 + fees...totally worth it! Daughter's b-day party is tomorrow so I have to go get the cake and party stuff and it's grocery shopping day. Oh yeah, and on the way home from picking up the rental, I turned on the hazards and could NOT figure out how to turn them off!! Had to pull off and have DH help me find the button!!
One really good thing did happen (besides not getting hit while waiting on the side of the road). On his way back to wait for the tow truck, DH stopped at the Chevron for a drink and bought a $20 lottery ticket. WINNER!!!WINNER!!!WINNER!!! He won $200!!! Almost pays for the repairs on the truck!!
So, missed my workout (which I really needed) but everything else is turning out okay. I'll get a good heavy work out in tomorrow morning b4 the party and maybe a light one after.
Deep breath...and exhale...The weekend will be better.
