“I heard the tornado siren”

CRAZY DAY weather wise

earthquake

Tornado

Insanity

There was an earthquake in Canada yesterday and we felt tremors. Then later on in the evening, there was a tornado warning. Which apparently is more severe that a tornado watch. What do I know?

For the first time, my son (and me) heard tornado sirens, and had to take cover. I guess it was “natural disaster day” around here.

“Take my clips off, I’ll fix the window”

Seriously, I hate cars. Always one problem or another. Today is probably the coldest day we have had so far this winter. This morning was around 25F. Well my car decided it would be the perfect morning for the motor rolling the driver’s side window to break. I think it froze. Anyway, the glass went down and did not go back up. Big T was so sweet and helpful about it.

He goes “Mommy, is the window broken? Take my (car seat) clips off, I’ll fix the window”

I wish it were that easy, kid.

I drove to work with the heat on full blast, and I was still freezing 🙁 I called Mr T (my husband), crying on the phone and ranting about how I never wanted to use this car again, and how I would love to get rid of the car.

Now I have to shell out $$$ to fix it. It’s not really something I can ignore.

OK, I need to be thankful… I need a thankful post to balance out the complaining…

I am thankful that my family is healthy, that I actually have a car, and that I was eventually able to pull the glass back up (although it will probably slide back down again). I am thankful this happened on a Friday, and I am thankful that my co-worker (who had no idea I was having a challenging morning) brought me a blueberry muffin and it was waiting for me on my desk when I got into work. I really like blueberry muffins.
