I guess today is just going to be one of THOSE days.

My Mom came over to look at Mister’s rash.  She said it IS chicken pox.  One of the spots welled up and popped.  Ugh.

While she was here, I thought I would run to the drug store and grab a battery that I needed.

As I was pulling out of the parking space at the drug store, someone else pulled out of his space, too.

He was driving a large pickup truck and I the minivan.

He had a chrome bumper.

I did not.

i need a new bumper i need a new bumper IMG_2583

His bumper won.


Of course, neither party was injured, which is the main thing.  And the gentleman was as pleasant as could be.  He even apologized for making me cry and said he was sorry that he had made my crummy day even crummier.

I literally just bust out crying.

Excuse me, Father Time?  I would like a new day.  STAT.

  1. I am sorry you are having a bad day. At least the man was a gentleman and not a jerk!

  2. Thanks, Whit. As I always say, if that is the worst thing that happens all day, we will be doing good. Fortunately, the kids are down for a nap now, so I can just veg out for a few minutes.

  3. Oh no, your day hasn’t been fun! I would have cried too! (if that helps)

    Time for a glass of wine??

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww….I wish I could give you a new bumper…and I sorry about the pox :(.

  5. I am so sorry! Last week my hubby was in the hospital very sick with MRSA and I was backing out early in the morning to go feed my dogs and see one of my sick kids (at their grandma’s) and didn’t see a car and bumped into them (thought it was a curb). I burst out crying too. I was embarrassed and felt awful that i had hit them and thought it was a curb.

  6. Aww, hugs!! I hope your day gets better. 🙁

  7. Ouchie! I’m glad you were okay and not hurt but yes, I call a do over on the day for you.

  8. Oh no that rots! I hope tomorrow is a better day!

  9. Oh my goodness! That stinks. Sort of looks like my sisters fender that she has no clue what happened to …. things will always get better … and hopefully soon!
