Anyway...I'll try to stay on track here.
It's been a weird week for us, with a few random things to cover here. That man of mine, he's had to work a LOT this week. Not by choice- it's just how it is. Everyone has their thing and my thing is that I single parent a lot and I'd be sugar coating it, if I didn't say that it's hard. Seriously you guys, I haven't had dinner with another adult since Sunday night and as much as I adore my crazy kids, I'm about ready to take a vacation. Well, not really, but I feel like I need one.
Tonight after the kids were in bed and he was finally home, I high tailed it out the door, in my flip flops, sweats and fuzzy hair. I'm sure I looked like a hot mess, but when you need to blow off some steam, you just go. And you walk--- fast. As I quickly flopped down the road, this gorgeous sunset greeted me. A little while later, I came home feeling new.
ticket I got a few months ago, for talking on my phone while driving? Well, this week I headed to court with Eliza to see about getting that ticket reduced. I so admit that I was wrong, but my goodness, $124 is a lot of money to pay, when you haven't had a ticket in 10 years.
Thankfully, the judge started at the end of the alphabet, for going through each person's case. After a few people who's names ended with W, and then U and T, it was our turn. As my name was called, I gathered my babe, my bag and we headed forward. My story was a little different than the ones I heard as I sat there in the corner. My story was actually so boring compared to the previous people that had approached the judge. The gal before me talked all about her boyfriend, the truck, the lack of job, the tabs that she wasn't aware of and how it's not her fault anyway---cuz, he should pay for it, right???
And then I walk up there and tell my story about my drive to MOPS, at church- and how I called my sister because my nephew was sick. I apologized in my shakey- I'm-talking-in-front-of-lots-of- people-voice. I guess I was nervous, after all, I never go to court. Even going through security to get into the court room made me nervous! Thankfully, the judge was kind and he reduced my ticket.
Tell me it's not just me, please?
