One of those days

Have you ever just had one of those days where you wish you could crawl in a hole and hide from responsibility? Today's one of those for me. Everything that has gone wrong has. We had a tire blow out on our van last night. Dallan was taking his scouts hiking and on their way, it blew. The saddest part, was we were already needing new tires on our other car and it was in my plans today to take that car in and get those tires. Not knowing a lot about tire replacement, Dallan and I forgot that you have to replace two at a time, they won't just sell you one. So today we had to buy four new tires. Ugh! I really have a love/hate relationship with cars. Gas is so pricey its hard to go anywhere, but without a car I don't know how I'd manage, and THEN there are the repairs, insurance, blah blah blah... the costs feel endless! This week is already crazy for me, so Dallan decided to take the cars in for me allowing me to keep the girls on their schedule, get them to and from swimming lessons, and hopefully just have an easier day. I'm playing in "The Secret Garden" at Chandler Gilbert Community College this week and next, tonight being my first rehersal with them. It was supposed to be quick to get all the tires replaced, but the place Dallan took the car of course was out of its specific tires, so they sent him to another store further away from his work to get it. So his morning was shot, he will most likely get home in time to high-five me out the door, and now I'm feeling guilty for pawning that responsibility off on him. Ugh! Money, Time... there is never enough of either one. And the painful realization of responsibility and choices made and their consequences is just rough some days. Se la vi.

Isn't being a grownup fun?! Tell the cute little girls of yours to enjoy being a kid and not to wish they were grownups. ;)
