Today has been a day like no other and I’m not even to lunch yet. I woke to a very, anxious husband who informed me I had a flat tire. In addition, my house in being torn up for new flooring and it’s pouring down rain outside. Rain + Humidity+ Wood = NO GOOD.
To top it all off, when I tried to get said car with VERY flat tire (thanks to the 4 inch piece of steel jammed into the wheel bed) out of the garage, the BRAND NEW door would not go up. Well, no that’s not correct – it would go up 3 inches before slamming back into the ground. A very interesting symphony paired with the roaring thunder and rattling lightning going on in the skies above my house.
So after dealing with a very cranky, tow truck driver, and getting my car to the tire repair store, I had to ride my bike home – wait for it….in the POURING rain.
Oh, and did I mention it’s my birthday today?
Honestly, if I had written all this for a character in a book, I know all my CPs would be sending me notes saying – “it’s highly unbelievable that all this would happen to one character in such a short amount of time.” Unfortunately, I have the story now to prove them all wrong.
Good thing that with age comes an ever-growing sense of humor. On days like this where you have two choices: laugh or cry. I choose to whole-heartedly belly laugh!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
