Today sucked so far

It has turned out to be a fairly rotten day.  Teresa thru no fault of her own got her car stuck in the mud and thanks to a good Samaritan her car needs to have her rear axel rebuilt.  My car, still has a flat and good old Adel Chrysler says it’ll be a wait before someone can look at it and see if it is fixable.  My shoulder is still FUBAR, so I can’t take the tire off, Teresa tried but can’t break 3 of the lug nuts.  Thank the gods I am friends with Drew and he made the offer to come help.

Now Drew lives in Ankeny and we live in Adel.  That is a 45 minute drive when there is no traffic.  Today we are probably looking at an hour or more cuz of Black Friday.  It’s ok, Drew is the man, he will get here as soon as he can and he will quickly rip the tire off and probably drive me and the tire to Adel Chrysler and wait with me.  Heh.  Drew is a good friend.


Teresa’s car aint going anywhere soon.  We need a flatbed tow truck to haul it to wherever we are going to have it fixed.  All this SHOULD be covered by our auto insurance, we shall see if its so.  If its not, we will probably go back to GEICO.  GEICO was more expensive than who we have now, but we never NOT got to talk to an agent.  Voice mail was returned within an hour.  I love our current agent, she’s a sweetheart, she’s just sometimes difficult to get ahold of (OK, most of the time).


My car just has a flat and needs a jump.  It hasn’t moved since we first left for Mayo.  Of course it needs a jump.  And the flat tire is the same flat tire I had last time, makes me wonder if there is something wrong with the car that makes that tire go flat.  Well, these problems will be taken care of today and we will have a working car.


Should have known today was going to be a bad one when I woke up wide awake at 8:10am.  I haven’t been up that early except for doctor visits in a long time.  I tried to nap, but then Teresa called.  I was stranded here, couldn’t do anything to help her.


It’s just a bad day so far.  Can I call a do over?  I mean seriously, it’s even raining today.


I’m hoping that we are still able to go out with Drew and Bridget tonight.  It’ll be nice to get out and socialize.


It all depends on how long it take at Adel Chrysler.  Probably be quicker to go to Adel Tire and Service.  But that would cost money which will have to go into fixing the axel of Teresa’s car.  Ugh, er, um, I don’t know what to do.


That’s it, no music today.  Just in a crummy mood now.
