Did you come looking for Freezer Foods Friday and get disappointed?
Here's the whole story. You see, my birthday is in March and like a good citizen, I ordered my driver's tag . But I procrastinated...and procrastinated...and.. well, you know the drill. So long, in fact, that before I knew it, April was here and guess what?! I couldn't find it! I had been riding around with it in my car, but had taken it out, and then put it back (Sad, right?) Not ever thinking about it until yesterday a policeman did a U-turn and came up right behind me and then it dawned on me: Uh-oh! I still have March 2010's tag sticker on the license plate! Fortunately for me, he was doing a u-turn to go on a call past me! Whew!
Ok, that was my wake-up call, but I couldn't find it! Today was going to be my day to go shopping, run all kinds of errands but not wanting to risk a ticket I stayed home and ALL DAY tore this house upside down trying to find it. And my car has never been so clean, including the trunk! I called hubby at work, got his voice mail and all I said was "I have no idea where my tag is!", then called his cell phone. I think I should let you know right here that I don't call him at every little snag I hit, but this (in my book) was a biggie!
Ok, long story short, or at least somewhat shorter, he gives me the worst case scenario- we just order a replacement for about 5-bucks. Ok, but I can't go shopping t-o-d-a-y! LOL I fret over this tag all day. Mr. Wonderful comes home, kisses me hello, and then goes out to my car. NOT EVEN FIVE MINUTES later comes inside holding the tag, receipt and all! He said it was UNDER my passenger's seat. I looked under every nook and cranny but I guess that's the place I missed. Now, why would he think to look there?! I'm glad he did. He's my hero, ya know!
I'm not even going to go into how I couldn't charge my cell phone (with one cell left) in the cigarette lighter in the car because there was a penny (don't ask!) inside and I pushed and pushed the do-hickey in there and blew the fuse... Once again, my Mr. Wonderful took care of that for me too. Oh, that's right, I said I wasn't going to go into that, didn't I?
Well, that's my day. Much effort spent into just spinning my wheels in place only to have my Mr. Wonderful come rescue me. So, my dear friends, that is why there was no freezer posting today. Will you, Could you possibly forgive me?
Do you have things like that happen? Do tell! Please make me feel better, or am I the only dork ???
