I thought yesterday morning was a rough one. As I was driving to my early morning appointment, I discovered I had a flat. Luckily my (amazing) mechanic was on the way and he fixed it right on the spot (which is reasonable since he changed my winter tires out last week and it was a seal issue). Running behind, I rushed to work through three highway construction zones for a mid morning meeting…which turned out had been cancelled only an hour earlier.
This morning I woke up way too effing early. My shoulder has been inexplicably killing me and making it hard to sleep much past 3 or 4. After rolling it out and getting some work done, Finn woke up to get our morning started. Finn paid me some money that I had spotted him over the weekend and I went to go for my wallet for change. I far too often leave my wallet in the car, so I didn’t panic at first when I didn’t find it. After getting him off to school, I then spent a half hour scouring both house and car…nothing.
The last time I remembered having it was when Finn and I went to get creemees last night. On my way to the office this AM (I do not like driving sans license), I called and left a message at the creemee stand. Before I arrived at work, I had received a message that it had been found and was at the police station. I turned around and went back to get it. Not only was it returned, but ALL $80 in cash was still in it.
While all this shit can be stressful (on top of the usual life juggling stuff), I am so very thankful for the place where I live and how we take care of each other here.
