Still Grouchy

This is a juvenile male Ruby-throated hummingbird that is one of MANY that visits my Dad's feeders.

I'm still super grouchy today. :( You know the saying, "God never puts on us more than we can handle. I just wish he didn't trust me so much!"? Well, that's how I'm feeling. And really, in the realm of things that are going on in the world my problems don't even amount to a grain of sand on all the beaches in the world.

That being said, I just had a goofy day today. First off, I'm pretty sure I've forgotten to write something down in my checkbook so I'm not certain if I have enough money in the bank to cover everything that's going out this week. I went and put some extra in, just in case, but what my account is showing just can't be right. That's been driving me insane all day. I'm sure you've all been there at some point.

THEN today when I'm leaving work my truck wouldn't start. Why? Because I didn't turn the lights off when I came back from lunch which caused my battery to run down. Why? Because my truck didn't "dingdingdingdingding" when I got out to let me know that I had forgotten to turn my lights off. Thank you, Tim, (my SSB) for jumping me off. :) Actually I guess that was a blessing in disguise because while Tim was getting his jumper cables I looked at my radiator coolant hickeymadooger and it was bone dry.

I went to Auto Zone and got some coolant. And on the way home I'm reminding myself over and over to NOT spill any in the driveway because I don't want to kill my two outside cats. So what's the first freakin' thing I do? I spill it all over creation and in the process of making sure my cats are nowhere around I fill my coolant box too full. Oh well, maybe it'll be ok. I also grabbed the hose and hopefully washed everything I spilled away.

Ok, so THEN I go inside, and after having whined pretty much all day about my AC being on the fritz, I still forget about it being broken, until the heat from the house almost knocks me over. I turn on the little bitty AC that honey took down from Brooke's room until we get our CH&A installed and it shakes the house so bad that you think that maybe a tornado is coming, but it cools a little bit nonetheless so I guess that's good. It's also so loud that it SOUNDS like a tornado is coming--just ask my buddy Jen--I let her listen over the phone. (You're welcome, Jen!) ;D

THEN I go into the kitchen to make myself a sandwich for supper and guess what? There's no stinkin' bread and I had JUST bought a loaf a couple of days before. *SIGH* Luckily I live less than a mile from several convenience stores and two grocery stores so I just went and picked up a loaf.

Ok, I think I'm done. No, I don't want any cheese with my whine. One good thing about today is that my honey was supposed to be in Atlanta working tonight but he has to come back home instead. :) That means I won't be alone tonight. Yippy!

If you're still reading this, thanks for hanging in there with me. LOL

If the heat doesn't make you grouchy--lol--nothing will! Dang girl get that AC fixed.
Sounds like you had one of 'those' days.
I know exactly where you are coming from too.
Hope today is better!
