the craptastic saga that was February 1st continues.
after i was removed from the ditch i drove approxzimetly 20 more kilometeres to work. then at lunchy i drove to the far north end of red deer to pay for the most expensive 5 feet of my life. and then drove back to work.
i finished out the rest of my crappy work day...and got into my car to go home, relax, then go to the super fun happy time that is the writers workshop with 2 coworkers and the "AW teacher" who is lots of fun, and likly some other familier faces.
not 2 blocks south of the office...SOMETHING WAS WRONG.
So i pull over at the next available place. get out hey look at that a flat tire and i just drove 3 blocks on my rim...oh what to do..pull out the spare, jack up the car, taker er off, put on the spare...it wont go on this way so it must go that way (oh and by the by..IT WAS COLD ON THE SNOW)
tack the jack down, throw the flat in the trunk..try driving, nope not right....tighten spare, try driving...BAD noises. Run to store (on foot) call some peeps, call my mom. she just got home, wait 30 minutes for her to arive.
She takes one look at it and says..."its on backwards" i say, "it wont go the other way"
we jack it up, take it off, turn it around, sure enough wont go that way. try a few times, nope, try my moms spare, nope not working either. call mechanic friend, says it has to go that way but it wont.
what to do? put it on backwards and drive really slowly to canadian tire.
mechanic takes one look..."wholly crap, thats not right, you have it on backwards."
ask them to take a look at old tire, see if i can avoid buying a new one. 1.5 hours'ish later and its fixed and on thier. Mechanic says, nope no way that spare can go on there.
got to mc-d's for food, cause really hungry..wiat for long time depsite being close to only people in the place. then go home..finally arrive at 9:00.
missed writeres work shop and just want to curl up in my bed and avoid the world for the next month....
if Today (the 2nd) isnt better? i just may do that.
so yeah, February is off to a GREAT start.
aside from car troubles, work has been hell. and everyone is saying i look really tired. i noticed the black bags under my eyes, but i am sleeping enough (i think)
My mother asked if somthing is bother me, but i told her that as far as i know there isnt. but who knows right? anyway it loks like i havent slept in days or i got punched in both eyes. so what ever.
I am officially doing notthing that involves work in any way this weekend.
