It still feels like Monday...

“Things tend to get a whole lot worse before they get any better.”

Getting to work this morning was an obstacle course. It also didn’t help that I hit EVERY-SINGLE-RED-LIGHT on the way over here…

So last night in the midst of making dinner, I ran out to go to Blockbuster real quick to grab a movie and some dessert. I mentioned before the BB that was close to my house has relocated far, far away in Never Never Land. So going to and from BB is already a pain in the ass as is.

To make matters worse, on my way back from the BB, I got stuck behind the Partridge Family bus, a swarm of wild monkeys, a group of senior citizens taking a tour of the neighborhood and THE slowest van EVER. I got so flustered that as the van went to make a left I peeled out towards the right.

This maneuver allowed the biggest chunk of metal to sink its teeth into my back right tire. Since it was flat, I drove it home, clunking all the way. I refused at that very moment to get stuck anywhere.

Being the Damsel in Distress that I am, when I got home I called my boy to come over and “help me” put on my spare. Naturally, the spare was also deflated.

So, I had to get up early this morning to go to the gas station and fill up the spare. Then I also had to take the other tire to the shop to get repaired. I had to do all of this and still be to work on time. (I had already called in yesterday and if I didn’t show up today I would look like an ass). On my lunch break I still have to go back to the shop and pick up, pay for and have the newly patched tire put on...

What is today? It feels like a Monday, but wish it were Friday…
