A Serious Case Of The Mondays

Today has so far sucked major butt.

The day didn't start out that way though. It was going pretty smoothly until I got a call from Rusty this morning. He called to inform me of a couple of things:
  1. One of our bedroom windows broke
  2. It shattered all over the carpet
  3. There are pieces of glass in Dexter the Tortoises' living quarters
  4. Due to the window breaking, we now have no window & have to cover it with cardboard (ghetto status)

I should state that none of this was his fault. This particular window for some reason was not staying open so if we wanted it open we'd have to prop it open with something. We made the landlord aware of this & she stated she'd get right on this & have it replaced. That was 2 weeks ago. So I had to break the bad news to her & explain that there is no way we could be without a window for longer than a few days. She seemed to understand although she did seem a bit irritated (Yes lady, we broke the already broken window on purpose so we'd be without one!).

Rusty sent me these pictures of the damage:


He later called & said that he had cleaned up all the glass & he was going to be re-building Dexter's home. I said great, thanks & hung up. About 10 minutes later he calls & tells me that while putting something away or something, he managed to slip, dislocate his knee & cut his calf. Oh. My. God.

And, to top it off...my car (only 2 1/2 years old) is in need of a new AC Compressor , which is on back order, & is causing my car to make this REALLY loud 'clat clat clat clat clat clat' sound. It used to only make a drum-like sound when the AC was on but now it's doing the 'clat clat clat' thing ALL the time. My head's going to explode (or implode), either way something's gonna happen to my head.

I need to go home. I only have an hour & 45 minutes to go but I'm ready to jump ship. I hope there are people out there who are having a better day than me & this poor kid:

(I know how you feel buddy)


  1. Geez! What a course of events. I bet you do feel like that kid! Hoping everything gets better for you. :)

  2. That is one heck of a day! Hope your week has gotten better!

  3. You poor thing! I hope your day got better. Good luck getting everything replaced.


I love comments!
