My regular readers know that I rarely complain and I'm not really complaining today - let's just say that I think I overdid it yesterday.
Buddy had a massive nose bleed sometime during the night (Sunday), so I had to immediately get started on an emergency laundry job. Stain fighter, rinsing, then two loads of laundry - back to back - one load for the sheets and one load for the bedspread that stated it needed to be washed in a commercial front loader. Since all I have is the top loader home model of washing machine and didn't have time to drop it by the cleaners, I took my chances at home. It took forever to dry, but I got it done.
My time at the grocery took longer than expected and the store had about three registers open (well, a few more than that, but they were all backed up) and I realized as I got in the back of the shortest long line I could find that it was after 2 o'clock. Now, I have to be back in my own town by close to 3 pm to pick up Buddy from school.
It got to be 2:18 and the line hadn't moved a whit. There was an older lady behind me with only 2 things. 2 things she could have taken to an express register and checked out, but NOOOOO. She stood behind me and I acted like I didn't see her (mean, I know, but time was of the essence at this point). THEN, the lady IN FRONT of me motioned for the older lady to get in line in FRONT of her! I couldn't believe it!!!
What am I, chopped liver? To her credit, she did address me and ask if that was okay and I mumbled an acknowledgment, then whipped out my cell phone to call the Evil Twin. I figured he could take 20 minutes of his day, go to the school and drop Buddy off at home, let him in if I wasn't there, and I probably wouldn't be far behind.
Well, Miss "I let random people skip up in line" overheard my conversation, she offered to let me go ahead of her, but that wouldn't have helped me time wise anyway, so I just told her "thanks, but my husband is getting him."
Then, I just completely ignored her for the rest of the time.
As it turns out, I drove up the driveway only seconds before the Evil Twin pulled in behind me.
At least I got help bringing the groceries in. :-) The Evil Twin returned to work. That was about 3:15 - I had loads of things to attend to and by the time I did everything (check Buddy's folder, check on the dryer, sort through the mail, etc. etc.), I finally sat down at nearly 4 pm.
So, all this is to say I feel like a slug today. I have a hair appointment at 1, so it will be after 3 pm before I can get to all my blogs again today.
Maybe I'll catch a break tomorrow or Thursday? One can hope. :-)
