You know some days are just destined to be bad... and people I had one of those days on Friday.... SO first of all, I was trying to fix our door handle on our front door, only to discover it was broken AND I had a sweet neighbor come to check on us to make sure we were all right, apparently apartment 132 had had an attempted break in and they wanted to make sure we were all right, I assured him that we were and told him I couldn't figure out this dang door knob and he went home to put his dog inside and came back with a screw driver, he tried to help but alas we discovered that it really was broken so I decided to head off to Home Depot.
Now before I go into that I need to catch ya'll up, Lauren (Hope's sister) had offered me a very part time job at the fitness spa she works at down town, and because I could take Leland with me I took it, it sounded like a super deal and it was however Friday morning I woke up with this doom and gloom feeling.... Anyway Lauren had called Thursday evening and asked me to come in at 1 which was an hour earlier and I said I would be able to do that, Leland normally goes down for a nap when we have plans in the afternoon at 10 and sleeps for a bit, so this door knob business was cutting into nap time and I started to get even MORE nervous about this job.
SO like I said I was off to Home Depot, and when I got there I threw my keys in the diaper bag, got out of the car shut my door, and went to get Leland out... ONE PROBLEM, all of the doors were locked and I left my diaper bag inside... I panicked had no clue what to do, so I asked a lady in the parking lot if she had a pen I could borrow, because I thought ok call a locksmith type thing, well she asked a Home Depot employee what we should do and he came running over and said we call 911 and before I had my phone out Ron was on his phone with a 911 operator. Leland was playing with Ron the whole time he was on the phone, and this is when I LOST it, I just started balling, and I couldn't stop, what kind of mother locks her baby in the car???? So the fire engine came and the ambulance came and they got Leland out after being in there for like 25 minutes, and he passed the EMT's inspection although he didn't want to come to me, he thought those fire fighters were pretty cool at this point Vince (another Home Depot employee) had brought us out a water bottle and was making sure I was ok and that they had gotten Leland out of the car. To make the whole situation more stressful though a woman who had all her kids parked and let them get out to see the fire truck, or possibly to see what was going on. But it seriously stressed an already stressed me out.... And we still hadn't gotten our door knob so I still had to go inside and get that, and I got lucky because Vince helped me find the aisle and who was in the aisle but Ron and he helped me pick out a door knob that was not too expensive and that would fit our door. I had called Hope at this point to ask her to call Lauren and tell her that I wasn't going to be in since i was having such a bad day, and Lauren texted for me to call her, so I did and she said go home have a rest and then come in, and I tried to explain to her that I was at my limit, I didn't think I could handle training, I can't even talk to anyone without tearing up.
At this point I remembered that we needed milk so I went over to Costco, got milk and waiting for Brian to go on Break, I recounted it to Brian and he of course was like well the Home Depot and Costco are so close you could have just called my work and I would have booked it over there to open the door, and I was like DUH that would have been the easiest and best option but I WAS PANICKED not thinking as clearly as I should have been.... just a thought there. So I got a text right before I was leaving Costco and it was Lauren asking me if I wanted the easy out, and if I didn't think the job was going to work. To which I thought, no I really don't think it is, I have to drive downtown twice a week for 3-4 hours each shift, I honestly don't know if it is worth it. I will have to keep looking and i told her thanks for thinking of me, and now I just hope she isn't upset with me. So we got home and I decided that Leland and I would nap together on my bed ( I mean I am still feeling terrible about locking him in the car, so naturally I want to be REALLY really nice to him) and I go to change his diaper, which had pooh in it, I get him all cleaned up and he chucks the clean diaper across the room, I go to get it and when I return there are little rabbit poops ALL over... SO he got to sleep in his crib.... Oh and while the Home Depot guy Ron was on the phone with 911 he broke the door handle off of the back passenger side door. I am however lucky enough to have found a replacement part that only cost 30$ and I hope my friend James will be able to replace it for us, I will of course pay him for his time... but that was my most horrible no good day thus far friends.... I am thankful it is over...
