When it rains, it pours.

Actually, some real rain might improve this day considerably, as I rather like a good rainstorm.

So far today has included:

1 towed car
3 phone calls to figure out how to get the car back
185 dollars to get our car back
2 cranky children
1 mother with a stomach bug
20 million children's books read (to said cranky children)
1 novel that the mother would like to read instead
8 errands that should have been done (but can't be, lacking said car)

All things considered, perhaps I should go back to bed now and try again tomorrow!

oh my goodness! why in the world was your car towed? (and I'm so sorry, how rotten)

Oh dear, what a day! I hope things pick up tomorrow - I agree, today sounds like a good day for hiding under the covers. Not that Jonathan and Thomas would find that an acceptable solution for more than about 30 seconds... *grin*

The one time I got my car towed was back before cell phones and I had to walk barefoot (I was in Karate practice when it was towed - I didn't notice the special event sign on the tree 10 feet away) for about a mile down to the police station to find out how to get my car back. I was not thrilled, to say the least!

I hope your day is much better today. Hang in there!

Wow. Congratulations on the pregnancy! I hope you get a chance to read your book. I have had the flu, and it's been a slow recovery. However, when I was home alone in bed for a few days, I remembered back to when my kids were all little and at home and there was no such thing as a "sick day" and I was thankful just to be alone with my kleenex and water and pillows propping me up in bed so I could breathe. It is tough to shake these things when you are pregnant--once I was so sick while pregnant, I thought I was just going to cough the baby out four months early. I hope you feel better soon. Traditional Medicinals teas are helpful--I like the Herba Tussin for a cough.
