At the moment I’m laying on the couch moaning and whining in pain. I know I’m acting like a baby but my body hurts so much – I’m giving myself permission to complain. It’s been an eventful day and not necessarily the good kind of eventful, though there were some pretty good moments.
The day started off as usual, woke up tired, dragged myself onto the treadmill –you’d think, with all my treadmill time I’ve been logging, I’d be losing weight faster than I am – worked, and even got some sewing accomplished. It’s the kids week off before they start their next grade so that makes life much easier on me. I had been secretly hoping it would pour rain all day so that the Professor’s soccer practice would be canceled. We have all been fighting off a cold –and so far we are winning – and I didn’t want to expose everyone to the cold, damp weather.
Rain was forecasted for all day but as usual the predictions were wrong and the clouds refused to give up the rain. Soooo…I piled the kids into the truck and made our way to the soccer field. I was trying to find a parking spot where I could see the field from the truck in case of rain. I really didn’t want the Milk Monkey getting wet. As I was backing into the spot I ran right into one of those big garbage bins in the back of the school.
There was a unison of gasps as we heard the smash!
I caught the Professor’s look in the rear view mirror, his eyes were huge and his mouth was wide open in horror.
I jumped out and rushed to the back! Thankfully the damage was minimal, it was just the rear light lens that was damaged. As much as I’d rather not spend $50 on a new one, I’m very thankful that it wasn’t worse.
Fifteen minutes into practice it started raining. I returned to the truck with the Princess and the Milk Monkey while the Professor finished his practice in the rain. Later, at home I sent the children up to shower and get pj’s on. That was around the same time I fell down the whole flight of stairs – ouch!!! – and that brings me back to my whining.
Thankfully, I didn’t do any serious damage, just some soreness. I’m so thankful it wasn’t worse!
On a brighter and sweeter note…the UPS man showed up at our door today bearing gifts!
I’m a big fan of the UPS man!!
I didn’t order anything so I was a little suspicious – even more so when I realized it was a tin of cookies – my over active imagination in full working order!
Inside I found a little thank you card from the RV dealership we bought our trailer from. I thought that was a really nice touch, especially since we were a for sure thing!
I would recommend buying an RV from Flagg RV to anyone – not just because they send really delicious cookies if you do! They were very helpful and have excellent customer service, also their prices are far better than any other dealership we talked too.
So today wasn’t great, but it wasn’t the worse day ever! Even through it all I can still find reasons to be thankful!
