So if you read my post from Friday you know that I was heading to the doctor for a recheck on my injury from last Tuesday. Well that didn't happen, I had to cancel.....
Let's start with the morning at 7:00 am when Mark was leaving for work. We had super strong Santa Ana winds Friday morning. He opened the back door to go outside with the dogs and then I heard something crash.
I went into our bedroom to see what it was and as it turns out the opening cover to our attic, which is in our closet, fell to the floor creating a bit of a mess. The suction must have done it but that has never happened before. So Mark got it back up and taped it just in case and I vacuumed up the mess.
I was on my computer for awhile, then I got showered and started to get ready for my appointment at 10:00 am. Had a huge blowout argument with Amber which is not a great way to start our day! Then I went into the garage and my car was dead! ($%&#)
So I called AAA to come out to the house. I also called the Mini dealer to see if they had an idea of what it could be. Possibly the battery or starter. Long story here about my battery but I'm not going to go into that now other than tell you that we put a trickle charger on it often because I don't drive often enough to keep it charged with all the computers on board.
Then I called the doctor to cancel my appointment. AAA showed up and yep it was a dead battery. Just so you know they can't replace the battery on a Mini. Mini has their very own special shaped battery which is very expensive. So he jumped my car and I headed over the the dealer.
So after 3 1/2 hours at the dealer I was on my way with a new battery, new wipers and one recall taken care of. I have one more scheduled for November 11th. What a day I had. I actually wanted to stay home on Friday to get ready for our trip to the beach. By the time I got home all I wanted to do was have a glass of wine, Friday night pizza and a movie!
What I did do on the way home was stop over at the Urgent Care and asked if they could do me a favor. I just wanted them to look at my wound and tell me if it was looking okay, healing like it should. I told them about my morning and having to cancel my doctors appointment. They did look at it and said it was looking good. I was so thankful.
Then I ran over to Sprouts because they have their Home Run Inn pizza at half price and wanted to get more for our freezer. These are a Chicago pizza and truly one of the best frozen pizza's around. We stopped ordering delivery pizza about six months ago and are really saving a lot of money buy buying these at Sprouts!
When I got home Mark was getting home too. He told me he got an email from Amber with a picture of the pumpkins they carved. They were all moldy and one was leaking all over Mark's lovely cabinet in his office. (I had them on foil) I could not believe my eyes!!! So there was another mess to clean up and no pumpkins to put out for Halloween Saturday night.
Anyway it was one of those days......but I am thankful for all the blessing God has given to us. Now let's hope things are going well on our beach trip. I'll let you know.......
