What a Day


Written November 27, 2012

I just sat down long enough to realize I had a tough day.  Forgot our notebook for violin class and my iPad I generally use to record the class.  Did have my camera but it died before the end of the class but the teacher kindly recorded the new part of our new song we have to practice this week.  Then we go to have lunch and I notice my tire is going flat so had to take the car to firestone for patching while the kids and I walked to eat Chinese in the cold and rain across the street.  When I went to get the car, I learned the tire couldn’t get patched because of the nail was on the side so they put my spare on and headed back home (did I mention I was in Mclean?).  On the way home I had to pick up my eldests medical records before his doctor appointment the next day which were of course not ready so we had to wait for them (that was after I waited 10 minutes on hold waiting to making my request over the phone). That is when we headed to Merchants the first time.  Luckily, I had the reciept for the tires we got last year on this car because there records didn’t show we had them.  They were also quite busy so were kind enough to take our tire and call us in the evening to take it in (and my dear husband took it in for me while I put the boys to sleep).  Once I got home, The email our teacher sent didn’t contain the video of our lesson.

The thing is, I’m not upset by my day, just a little tired.  I’m thankful for all the kind and patient people that prevented it from being a completely insain day.  Not once did I feel overwhelmed.  Thank you hubby, teacher, nice people at Merchants and Firestone and my boys who patiently experienced this crazy day with me.

After all that, we still managed to get our writing, math and reading done before we left the house and some more reading time after bed in addition to our regular Violin class and Taekwondo class.
