big whiner.

one heck of a day. so glad it's nearing an end.
-took pup to get neutered. did okay there... found an umbilical hernia. had to fix that too. makes me sad for my poor lil pup. can't wait to see him tomorrow. crazy how much i miss him. crazy how much the cats enjoy him being gone. ;o)
-got to work and 2 people had called off. chaos. super busy. foot not enjoying that. oh well...
-had to take the civic back to honda for the upgrades we purchased. the guy we bought the car from called us at like 5 and told us we had to be there by 6. seriously? did you just find this out? could you not have informed me of that when i scheduled this appointment? ugh.
-got a crummy rental car. mini van or death trap. so not into maneuvering a mini van. death trap it is. okay, maybe not really a death trap. but i do exaggerate.
-get to the mall to look for a christmas gift. can't find it. BONUS: found winter crocs. woot woot. both nick and i got a pair. i have a problem. BUMMER: went to have my rings cleaned and found out a diamond was loose on my wedding band. at least it didn't fall out. now i'm ringless. feel naked. have to wait a week to get it back.
-upon walking to the death trap, find out that it had a temporary license plate. that temporary license plate is EXPIRED. by the time we realize this, enterprise is closed. shit. now what? at this rate, i'm going to be pulled over and get some crazy ticket. call honda. speak to the service manager who we like. not the guy who sold us the car. not so big fans of his... anywho. tell him of our debacle. says he will take care of it in the morning. that he will have them bring me a new car at work tomorrow. nick is talking to him on the phone as i'm pulling into the driveway, when i realize... i forgot the effin garage door opener in the civic. dude. what is with today? thankfully, the guy said he would have the enterprise peeps bring that with the new car.
-when nick talked to the service manager, he discussed some of the complaints we had about our sales man. and informed him that if nick does indeed get an element, we aren't so sure that our man will be the man. might want someone different. listed our complaints: uniformed, didn't have the paperwork ready when we were coming in to buy the car {we waited like 2 hours there!}, and that the dude took a personal freaking phone call for like 10 minutes while he should have been filling out our paperwork. wtf mate? excuse yourself. don't just sit there. ridiculous. get home and the sales man calls to apologize. that's serious service. really okay with the manager. felt kinda bad for the sales man but you know what... a job's a job. and he needs to know how to be professional. so whatevs. nick is a bit anxious to see him again. but what do you do?

i'm now at home. in my comfy jamjams sipping a killer martini. i'm out of wine! watching some foosball. loving on the kitties. looking forward to tomorrow being a new day. talked to my grams. was hoping to nab her car before the car thing got settled. had to fill her in. she told me that old saying... 'what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.' i told her in my case, 'what didn't kill me, would make me crazy!'

'nuff whining. off to be positive... okay maybe not, i'm such a pessimist, but i'm gonna try! at least for the rest of the evening. ;oP

poo on your day. at least once you are home, martini in hand. it can only get better unless you drop the martini, it lands on a power cord, the christmas tree goes up in flames and you are left to live in your expired license rental for the night. tomorrow will be better
