A Series of Unfortunate Events
Here is a list of the unfortunate things that happened to us today:
  • We forgot about our hair appointments, which were at 9am and 10am
  • Woke up to MY car having a FLAT TIRE
  • Drove to Les Schwab--it was CLOSED
  • Drove to Babies R'US--it was not OPENED YET
  • Drove to Starbucks--ran into some PBC friends, and I looked TERRIBLE
  • Fought bad traffic looking for a place to eat some lunch
  • Terrible McDonald's food (last resort, since we couldn't find anyplace else); fries were too salty, and burgers were slapped together and fell apart
  • Samuel screamed all the way home
  • My tooth pounded with pain ALL DAY
  • While at McDonald's, the machine malfunctioned and pop sprayed on my hand/arm
  • Came home, having had a FRUITLESS day with nothing but STRESS

Okay, I was able to remedy the first part of my day by leaving the house with only Samuel and meeting Sharla at our old house (1935) and touring it once again for an open house. It was so much fun walking through all the rooms that hold so many memories! We lived there from 97-99, and it was so cool to see it again. It was sold in 99 for under 200K, and is now on the market for 325K. Hard to believe. I'd buy it if I had the money, but I don't. After going through it, though, I realized that even if I had the money to buy it, it wouldn't recreate that time in my life. A house is just a frame--what happens inside the house is what matters!

By the time I got home, I was in a much better mood, and so was Landon. We stayed home all night. I did drive to Fred Meyer to get vanilla ice cream and root beer for root-beer floats, but that set my nerve off very intensely, so I spent the next hour in extreme pain. It's just been that kind of day!
