Luckiest Girl on Earth

Me, yep, little ol' me. Seriously ya'll, I bitch and moan and complain all the time but deep down inside I know I've got it good. And I owe it to the hubby. My prince charming. Shh, don't tell anyone, but I really don't think I deserve him. Really.

Yesterday, he had a dentist appointment at 9:00am. He makes those appointments, because they always involve him missing some amount of work, so they are his deal. Anyway, this of course means that those appointments mean NOTHING to me. So yesterday morning I am bugging him about being late. And why in the name of Pete is he still here?! Dentist appointment, he points out, I'm sure not the first time he's told me either. Here's the problem, we use his leaving in the morning as our indication that we need to get butts in gear and start moving. So if he's home, we are all... yep you guessed it... running late! As I'm getting the girls out of the house, grabbing bags of juice boxes and chips for school parties, HE.IS.JUST.IN.MY.WAY!

My oldest usually rides her bike to school, but all the juice boxes are too heavy, so we have to drop her off on the way to Brooke's school. Let me tell you the fellow parents at drop off, they piss me off... um, irritate the hell out of me! For months after school started we got flyer after flyer telling us all to enter the drop off from the same direction, unfortunately it requires making a left hand turn into the school, with no light. Not a huge deal, except it is May and some parents still drive in from the other direction, making that left a pain in the royal freakin ass!

So I'm in a hurry, late because hubby being home threw off my schedule. I am ticked off because some dumb ass is approaching the school from the wrong direction and going faster than they should in the school zone, so I make the left in front of them... and SHIT, hit the dividing curb in the school drive. Okay, I have jumped many a curb in my day, mainly to park in places I probably shouldn't have, and have never had this happen. I hit that curb at exactly the wrong place and DAMNIT I have a FLAT TIRE! No freaking way! I pull into a parking place and call hubby, who is as we know AT HOME! SWEET! His office is 45 min. away, so on a normal day, we'd have been leaving that flat and hitching rides with friends.

Hubby shows up to change the tire and I leave with his car. I KNOW! I can't even stick around to cheer him on (Pete knows I wouldn't be helping) because this is the ONLY day of pre-K Brooke absolutely CAN NOT miss or be late for. It's the day they are riding the school BUS to graduation practice. See we live within 2 miles of our elementary and middle school and the high school they are currently building, my kids will not be bus riders, and riding the bus is FUN when you are a kid! Plus, graduation practice, yes for pre-school. Important stuff people!

The tire, she is dead. The spare on and ready to go. Hubby calls the dentist tells them his wife is a shitty driver, had a flat and he is on his way. Less than 15 minutes late for his appointment! Impressive! I then run by the dentist office after dropping off the munchkin and switch back cars with him. The replacement tire is apparently a rare breed, so me and the spare, we are bonding.

But back to hubby. He then drives to work, numb. Because, hello, sole bread winner in the family. Now imagine my surprise when he gets home EARLY for her.
So he can sit and do this.
While waiting for this.
And this.
Then of course hanging out afterwards for this.
Seriously, do I have the BEST Hubby EVAH, or what?!

*Stay Tuned.
We will return to our regularly scheduled smartass postings tomorrow.
