Mundane Drama

A little while ago a big white thing hit my windshield and cracked my window all the way across. Lucky for us we have glass coverage. (This is kind of a lengthy post for me so I added some pictures of my cuties for your visual entertainment.)

John made the call and someone could come out to wherever our car was to fix the window.

So easy and hassle free. Our lives were not going to be inconvenienced at all. What a deal. I guess I forgot for a moment that it never works out that way for me. Sorry Mom, I know what you're thinking (law of attraction)...but it's true.




So a guy came out to my school a few weeks ago to fix it. He was set to come between 8 and 12. He got there at 12:04. That should have been clue number one at the road this was about to take.

After he was done everything seemed great until I got home and tried to use our garage door opener. It is built into our rear view mirror. I thought maybe he just hit something while he was working and we (John) could fix it. Nope. He cut the wires going to the mirror.




So I called the company and they could send someone to our house. Great. Again, we wouldn't be inconvenienced at all. But of course the smooth guy who cut the wires did such a number on it that they couldn't fix it. John had to then go through many hoops to get the arrangement for the fix. Thanks John...

Soooooo I had to take my car to the dealership yesterday and get a ride to work from Jim the shuttle guy who has two cats and a dog who loves to harass the cats. I heard about his animals on the ride back to the dealership.

So now hopefully everything is ok. I have a new rear view mirror and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll have no trouble programming it.




I hope you're not drooling from boredom from having to read about our garage door opener. In my dream world an assistant would have totally taken care of this issue. I'd also have my assistant grocery shop for us and keep a stocked mini ice chest of cool drinks in the car. Ahhhh....

that's so annoying! I hope the glass repair people paid for everything to be fixed!

I wish I too had an assistant who could do all of our packing for us right now. And on top of that in my dream world my assistant would also be trained to do my hair and make up. . . a girl can dream . . . . back to packing :(

Ah, an assistant. I dream of one every time I have to sort the damn junk mail.

My assistant would do the dishes, fill the car with gas and pull the weeds in the yard. My 3 most dreaded tasks.
