Debris on the road

Yesterday was a really baaaaad day. I was in such a foul mood it was all I could do to not go postal on anyone who crossed me. One dumb thing after another, then thinking about the long wait we have ahead of us, other things that aren't going well, it was all I could do to hold it together. I really do try to be positive but yesterday it was just not happening.

Then to top it all off, we were driving home last night (Shawn went to see the Leafs actually win a game and I was at Shelley's place) and we were on a darker part of the highway. All of a sudden I saw a piece of truck tire on the road and guess what? Yup, we ran over it. We heard something dragging underneath but there was no where to stop and check what it was. We finally got off at our exit and stopped at a gas station. The thing that was protecting the underneath part of the engine had come loose and was dragging. Shawn took it into the dealership this morning and $400 later the car is fixed. The worst part is we can't even complain to anyone since we didn't see which truck the stupid piece of tire fell off from.

Perfect way to end the perfect day.

AAAARRRGGGGG! I do NOT like those kind of days! I'm sorry it was so crappy. I hope today was better. My solution is always chocolate. :-) Or, a hug. Or a comment from a friend across the country who hope tomorrow will be a GREAT day! :-)

It makes me furious when my car is damaged because of someone elses neglegence. $400 is a lot of money that you could have had some fun with. I'm sorry girl!

I'm sorry you had a bad day, sweet girl. I will share in your misery as I have been having one very yucky week. I just can't seem to break out of this funk I'm in...

Yup I'd file that day under C for crappy. Hope today something great happens to make up for your yesterday.

Oh that kind of sounds like the last couple of days I've been having - I just always hope that the next day will be better! Try to think about it like this, every day, good or bad is one day closer to the day we will become moms!! Hope you have a better day tomorrow - it's Friday!!!!

P.S. I just e-mailed you this message because I was having trouble publishing a comment but I got it figured out - sorry you will get it twice!

Talk to you soon!
