Day started out nice and BAM!

Monday, April 22, 2013

So, I'm up on time. I get dressed cute to go to work. I even had time to Spark a bit. I head out to the car and BAM - two tires flat as pancakes! GRRR.

I have the car towed (that was an experience) to a local shop that does tires. It is like 7 am at this point. Shop opens at 9. It's nice out, I walked around, played on my phone, etc. Guy gets there at 8:30 to open. We chat. No problem, 20 minutes, 30 tops - BAM!! They only have ONE tire in the size I need. So we start calling around to other shops they know. We find a tire but can't get it until 1pm!

So the mechanic gives me a lift home. I have to go back at 6pm to pick the car up (that is when I will have a ride). GRRR!! I could never get in touch with my boss, called three times and got voice mail all three times. I KNOW he's not happy.

Thank all that is holy my girls are better. After way overeating lunch (yes, I dove head first into the chocolate) my stomach is finally settling down. I'm off to walk until my feet hurt. I'll do some interval running along the way.

And then come home, hit reset and try again tomorrow.

Love to all!

    Arrrgggghhhhh! That stinks!!! Sounds like you handled it pretty well considering the stress that must have brought. I hate unexpected, morning drama, it's the worst. The only thing worse is late night, after work drama. Hope tomorrow is better!!

    Cuss, cuss, cuss! Glad the girls are feeling better. 2 flats? Crazy. Your boss should answer his phone. Enough said! Hope the reset works better tomorrow!

    You handled that very nicely, got in some walking while waiting. Then took a walk/run after getting home. Forget the chocolate! I'm sure you ran it off anyway. emoticon emoticon

    That stinks. Your boss may not be happy, but it's not like you didn't try to call and explain. 3 messages should me more than enough.

    What an awful day after your birthday. I don't know how you keep such a good attitude no matter what. I would have been a wreck & probably screaming.

I am glad to hear that your girls are better, and I hope you enjoy your walk, and have a nice relaxing evening.

Tomorrow is another day, things will get better. emoticon

    I am so sorry that you had such an awful day so far. It truly must be a Monday! I hope that your boss is more understanding than he is mad. Here's to a better Tuesday!!!

    Egads, what a crap day! I do not know how you did not scream at the top of your lungs!!

I guess we have to look a the other side of this: you could have had a blowout on the road,, had an accident.. so there IS always a bright side..

    When it rains, it pours! I have definitely seen that in regards to car troubles. I hope your boss was at least understanding!
