Yeah. That was my Monday morning. And I did consider going back inside my house and pouting over the unfortunate series of events that had transpired. But then I remembered that I don't miss my workouts, so I sucked it up and drove to the gym with the side passenger window rolled down in the 26 degree cold cold weather. Because this is my routine, and I'm not going to let anything get in my way if I can help it.
Surprisingly, it didn't take me more than a couple of minutes to get into my groove and forget about the crummy start to my day. Score one for exercise - I think I worked off most of my frustration at something going wrong with my car, so by the time Jeff came home and we took it to the mechanic, I was not having a hissy fit, which I have been known to have over car troubles (this would fall under the "why can't they just work?!?" statement that I am known to have uttered a time or two). Hopefully by the end of day I will have my car back, with a new window mechanism (to the tune of $320, argh!) and all will be right with my world again. Of course, I have been informed that the driver's side window will probably do the same thing pretty soon, so I have the perfect solution...don't roll down the window! You know, if you think about which window should have broken first, the driver's side makes more sense...all those trips through the Taco Bell drive thru gave that window a good work out!
And now I'll leave you with a picture of my pretty yellow Gerber daisies - a bit of sunshine for a dreary post!
Gerber daisies are one of my favorite flowers - the other being ranunculus.
