nick and the...

terrible rotten no good day. what is the title of that book? i think it had to do with a tabitha! anyway....
nick had a stinker of a day. running back and forth between his two pharmacies. trying to get stuff situated with some of the changes his company is making. so dealing with traffic around here is pain enough and then to have to mix antibiotics and deal with corporate is an additional stressor. so he tries to get everything done and in order for his prn that is coming to cover. ends up being at work until about 7 p.m. then runs to meijer to pick up our 'just in case' prescriptions and notices a flat tire. yup. an effing flat tire. in subzero weather. on a day when we are on a bit of a timeline.
so i meet him at meijer and he can't get the nuts off. no one is open. it's friday after 7. no one at mitsubishi or any of the local auto places. grr. go to meijer gas station to use air pump. find out air pump is broken. double grr. go to mobile. finally get air for tire and drive it to my parent's. convince my brother and his friend to change the tire. hello, they do work at advance. they can totally do it. great. we leave the car at my parents and drive to the gym. work out crabbily {is that a word. if not, it should be. it so fits this situation.} and then head back to the house. we call on the way and we forgot to tell them which wheel. duh. can you say brain overload?! so they do switch it out. with the ghetto fabulous spare. seriously, the car is pimpin!! ;)
just now got home and are about two hours behind schedule. thank goodness we don't have an early flight. but now it looks like snow in the evening. it better hold off. because i seriously need to be in 80 degree weather with a tropical drink 24 hours from now or i might be stressing. and i KNOW nick needs it too...
