Gasoline

I woke up this morning at 6 20 to get ready for 7 00 bootcamp.  I got in the suburban and someone ( namely Neal) left it on Empty.  Not just empty, but out of gas.  So I went back in and to get the keys to his car.  I got in his car and guess what?  0 miles to empty.  Not only had he used all my gas but most of his too.  This was a great start to a CRAZY day.I prayed all the way there, I didn't have time to stop and fill up.  I am afraid when I get to heaven the Lord is gonna tell me I prayed more over gasoline than anything else.  I finished my bootcamp and headed the gym to train a client.  Actually I did get gas first.  Then I headed to the gym.  On the way to the gym my friend called to say they kept her husband overnight at the hospital and she could not complete the baby shower cake that I needed by 2 today.  I already had to move the shower to another home due to sick children.  Wow, my day was getting better and better.  So after the gym, I went to the store to get stuff to make frosting and other stuff for the shower.  I got home ,finished the cake, made both punches and got my clothes on.  Note I didn't have time to shower, yuck, I was feeling really pretty.  Neal took the 2 little ill ones to the Dr while Madison and I loaded all the stuff to the car.  I was going to drop off stuff early, pick up my monogramming, go by Publix, and take Madison up to the school before we set up for the shower.  You should have seen us, Madison was holding this 2 tier monstrosity of a cake I attempted to decorate, while balancing punch between his feet.  So we have configured the logistics when the unthinkable happens.  No Keys, I couldn't find them.  I called Neal to find out where he left them, he said they were with him at the doctor .  Oh, I was so not happy about this.  We had to call my poor friend who was now hosting to the shower to come pick up and all our stuff up.  She had to chauffeur us around on all our errands.  Her husband even helped get Madison to the school.  It was crazy.  We were afraid that cake was not going to make it.  I forgot to bring all my serving dishes and we had to make do but it turned out great.

I am now home , in my PJ's for the evening curled up with my laptop and now I am out of Gasoline.

I'm so sorry about all of that... it reminds me of the time ... a new car we bought died in the garage.... we couldn't get it out and couldn't find the battery and they kep saying no don't jump it off we'll come get it, we are like, no you don't understand you big dummies, we'vre tried to roll it out and the mirrors stuck on the garage. It is now so funny, but at the time we were so angry and frustrated.
