And today is one of those days.
Initially my sister and I were supposed to head down the Cape to see some family. We had a distant cousin pass over the holidays and we were going to pay our respects. It was going to be a long ride, and take up most of our day and we were looking forward to it. It would be fun for us to hang out - and it's always fun to see family. But somehow, I knew it wasn't going to happen.
My daughter had been sick since New Year's Eve Day, early early morning with a stomach bug. The whole "throwing/go-ing" thing. Poor chickie. So yesterday was really just a lazy, hang around and do nothing day since she wasn't well. This morning I said to my sister, "you know, I just don't think I should travel too far today...something's not sitting right with me, I just don't think I should go far". So we decided to go to Starbucks, visit and maybe have lunch or something. A little "sister time" which we never get. Sure enough, I pull up to Starbucks and my phone is ringing.....our hot water heater blew. Now, I was suspicious because yesterday we had to relight the pilot - but figured no big deal. But today - water everywhere..... So. That was item number 1 for the day. I called the plumber and $1000 later - voila - a new water heater.
Then, I get a call from the school. My son, who was perfectly fine this morning - got sick in his class and needed to go home. Guess the stomach bug is making it's way around. So, my sitter picked him up since I was no where near the school and didn't have a car seat w/ me either. That was #2.
The final straw was as I was driving home. I missed my exit onto 93 because I was talking w. my sitter to see how the kids were. (Daughter's fine....Son, not so fine....) So, I ended up turning around all the way near my work. No big deal, right? Well, this truck cuts me off changing lanes - and rocks fly off the back of his truck bed. One of them I watch bounce off the highway and slam right into my windshield, cracking it. There was my number 3.
Hmmm. 2007 could of started off just a little bit nicer, you think?!
