what a day

I would like a do over.
Today has been a LITTLE bit crazy.

When I started to leave for work this morning,
I realized that I had a flat tire.
Not really a big deal.
I had to learn how to change a flat tire before I could get my drivers license.
So, I called my boss and told her I was going to be late.
Luckily, she told me to just take the morning off!

I get the car up on the jack with no problems.
But then I could not get the stupid lug nuts off.
I know air compressors make life easier for mechanics but it makes it nearly impossible to remove them by hand.
I literally tried for 15 minutes to get the lugs off.
Finally, I admitted defeat gave up and called a guy from work to come help me.
Of course, with one twist he gets them off.
I totally loosened them up for him;)
Then we find out my spare tire is flat as well.
It did have enough air in it to get to the nearest gas station.
Thank Jesus!
I finally get to the tire place and get my tire fixed.
Luckily, they were able to plug the hole and
it only cost me $15!

I know having a flat tire is not the end of the world.
But it sure is a crappy way to start the week.
Hopefully, your Monday was a little better than mine!


  1. That does sound like a crappy morning! Actually, that would have ruined my entire day! :) Hope your evening is better and thanks for the birthday wishes for my dad! :)

  2. Oh my goodness, what a way to start the day. I'm sorry!

  3. Aw man! Rough morning for sure! Glad you got it fixed for only $15, that's awesome!
