Seriously this 29th year is starting with a bang. Yes that is how old I am and no I refuse to start that I am 29 forever now. It’s just a number.
This morning I woke to the kids staring at me. Lets just say that they scared the crap out of me. Nice huh? Then Blake says “Happy Birthday Mommy. How does it feel to be old?” Told him I didn’t know but he could ask his grandmother. Let’s see how well that goes over. Kids up and dressed in 20 minutes. Yes we were running late. Pop Tarts in the car and rest of breakfast in the school cafeteria.
I take my car over to the garage to get the new belts on. He tells me it will be a few minutes longer. He wanted to put a new pully on. Ok, no problem. It is 905 when I leave. I note the time because my stomach was growling and I had a few more errands to run. Then it would be home for breakfast no biggie.
I went to Dicks Sporting Goods and got Paul his shoes. Hope they are made of gold because the suckers were expensive. Happy Birthday to me. From there I went to walmart and got all the stuff we needed. I was out of cleaning supplies, and snacks for the kids, also had to get Nathan’s snacks for his class. I needed new eye liner. I went on the search for a small cooler. Couldn’T find one if my life depended on it in walmart. Really? You had two aisles full last week. Off to Dicks Sporting Goods and found one.
From there I made the choice to get the car washed. Why because I hadn’t done it since Paul left oops. I don’t go anywhere and dont tell him. I am sitting in the car and it starts to sputter. hmmm maybe the water got in the car no biggie. Then the car died. Crap I am stuck in this car wash right here on the Berlin G. Meyer Highway.
So I call Ernie from inside the car that is now stuck in this bay. He thinks I am kidding. Nope let the meltdown begin. Go in the Tire Kingdom and ask for help. They push me out of the bay and into a spot. Ernie gets Brad to come rescue me. They hurry and get us fixed. On my way a second time.
Oh you thought the car trouble was done??? NO NO. Where is Ashton? He is going to Punk me right? Could my birthday get any worse? Did karma forget I was going away this weekend?
Back to the garage we go because the alternator drained it completely and killed it. Now it was having a hard time staying juiced. We have a new battery and am good to go for our trip.
Next birthday I am sleeping it away. Was sad that I wasn’t really punked but had more than likely ticked Karma off again.
