you sure I'm not blonde?

wow, what a day. While I'm not grumpy about it, I'm glad it's nearly over. I just wrote out this mamoth post giving y'all the play by play of aggravating events that made up my day. I'm deleting all but one. I'll leave you with my dumb ass moment of the day.

After I get Noah off to school I load the girls into the van to drop them off. Click. click. click. T
hat's the only sound the damn thing was making. Dead battery. Must have hit 100 degrees yesterday. I always lose my battery first day the temp rises.

No biggie. I've got Peter's truck and jumper cables. right? WRONG. Can't find the cables. Call Peter, no answer. Call bro, he's in Maricopa. Call Peter, again and again and again. Call one of the guys from work. Here's how that convo went. It's 8:03am, he's been there 3 minutes. haha
Me: Hey Carlos, My car is dead, Peter's out of town, you think you can come jump me?
Carlos: Huh? what?
Me: I have a dead car and Peter's truck, but no cables. Can you help me?
Carlos: So you have two cars? why can't you drive the other one?
Me: HAHAHAHAH yeah. no shit huh? DERR! nevermind.

Felt like a complete moron!

It all ended well. I took the girls to school in Peter's truck and, after some begging, borrowed a set of cables. Called my brother and he walked me through jumping the car without blowing myself to smithereens. All before 8:30am.

Sorry to laugh, but that is pretty funny. I think you and I must be suffering about the same thing. My mind is GONE. Even simple questions lately seem to really confuse me. What's up with that?

I'm reading though this wondering, "Why doesn't she just drive the truck?" Yay for Carlos!

Thanks for the laugh! :)

Ya, i did hear about you leaving the store! I completely understand, yo. Sometimes, you just need to take a break. And coming from someone who just finished scrappin' sampler, and hasn't been to bed yet...i definitely could use one of those, said breaks. Way to listen to your limits and do what's best for you!! Love ya!

I have to admit that I have HAD moments like that! Although, like Beth, I was thinking, "Ya, just take Peter's car!" For a minute there, I thought that you were going to say that you couldn't find his keys! Oh, but that would be YOUR keys he misplaces . . . LOL!
