Best of Luck

The other day I was out and about getting things ready for school. I had to stop by my mamas house and while I was there she asked if I could run to the store for her. I of course don't mind running errands for my sweet mom who does so much for me so I willingly agreed. Well one thing I always admire when I go to my parents house is my former car. When I was single and stupid, I spontaneously bought an Acura TSX and LOOOOOOOOVED it. Well since I'm now married to an accountant, he explained to me that my car payment was too much for a newlywed couple to bare if we wanted to ever buy a house. So we sold it to my fabulous parents who wanted a run-around car. Hence the reason I dream of driving it when I visit. Well back to my story.....My mom asked me to run an errand and so I decided that I should splurge and relive my single days in the Acura. haha. So off I went on my merry way and ran the errand for my lovely mother. As I was about to back out of my parking spot, I being an expectant mother, turned to see if anyone was behind me. Of course there was this big black Toyota Sequoia that was driving down the lane looking for a place to park. After it passed I slowly backed out and as I was just about to put the car into drive to be on my merry way, I could see that this black sequoia decided that she would reverse to park in the spot she had driven past. I could see her barreling my way so I laid on my horn hopping she would clue in but apparently that didn't work until she crunched into the back of my former beautiful Acura......which is now owned by myparents.
It of course wasn't my fault but I was very annoyed at the Sequoia driver and how she tried to make it sound like I was the careless driver??? Hello? I would look behind me before I barrel down the lane going the wrong way and oh, I would buckle my kids in their seats so they weren't dancing around in the car, unlike you lady?? So tell me? Who do you think is responsible now? Anyway moving on....
Today (five days after the accident) my handsome husband was backing out of the Walmart parking lot when another careless driver who didn't find it important to look before backing out, ran into my husband.....who was driving my car.


After we cleared up that whole mess I finally made it out to the school where I mold young minds, and upon my arrival and excitment to finally be there and get lots done, I plug in my computer and hit the power button. I was very dissapointed when nothing happened. I thought maybe it was my cord so I borrowed one from another teacher hoping that it would work in this oh so busy time of year, and much to my surprise it didn't. Then I tried another outlet. Once again nothing. I was about to cry!! How on earth could my computer fail me now!! Not at this time of year! Anytime but now! Unfortunatly my school computer is shot and the tech guy won't be out till Wednesday. So until then I will be digging through the files in the back of my brain trying to recreate everything I have made over the past four years of teaching. I sure hope that we're on the up an up now. Wish me luck.
