I woke up this morning to my soaking wet dog (freshly bathed by my Dtr.) come running into my room, and jumping up and peeing on my bed comforter! Dtr. had forgotten to let Dog out both before and after the bath; dog HATES grooming-- she had a bad experience when we 1st got her 10 yrs ago and she gets crazy every time since then.
Checked to see if I can get to Chat here; still can't.
Took dtr. back to college 110 miles away but we got a late start (her fault; we had to stop and pick up some stuff here in the Cities for her boss and dtr. waited til the last minute). Of course, the place we had to pick stuff up at doesn't take checks, so my $50.00 cash went towards that ("I'll pay you back when we get there, Mom"-- we forgot!).
The drive to school was uneventful except we were late getting there and she was late for work. Dropped her off and I had to haul her stuff back to her room; 4 trips up to 4th floor in the dorm; stinky garbage bag in the elevator riding up and down; only parking space was nearly a block away.
On the drive back home, I was sooo tired I could hardly stay awake. Stopped 3 times in 80 miles for coffee, soda, chips, gas, whatever, in order to stay awake. On the 3rd stop, I locked myself out of the car! Thank goodness for auto club membership; I only had to wait 30 minutes for them to come and unlock the car! I guess it was happening so often that the police now charge $75.00 to help motorists with this problem in that town; that's more than my auto club membership for the year!
So I finally get home 4 hrs late; my son is here and says I STILL can't get on Chat; he's panicked that I wasn't home and has called the Dtr., DH (who was at a meeting) and DH's Aunts and got them all worried about me! I have to call and reassure everyone I'm okay. Leaving my house, my son broke his zipper on his pants (he'd popped the button earlier and didn't sew it back on right away) and takes MY sweatpants so he can get home!
Now I just opened my mail and got a letter TODAY from my car insurance company DATED October 7th!!! saying the insurance was due October 22nd-- so I'm wasn't insured today!
Thank goodness I stopped before I fell asleep at the wheel! I called the insurance company and said I'd pay by credit card right now; but their credit card payment thingy is not working and I need to call them again in the morning so it will be okay.
It hasn't been a really bad day; just a WEIRD one! I think I should go back to bed; but I really don't want to start this one over again.
