Rachel and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

This pretty much sums up my life today for the following reasons:
  1. I woke up late.
  2. It was pouring the rain.
  3. We got stuck in traffic for 2 HOURS on the Interstate 10 minutes from our house
  4. When traffic finally moves our BATTERY IS DEAD
  5. We are in the left lane and can't pull over.  We're on the side of a mountain so we can't put it in neutral and push.  There's no cell phone reception where we are.  I'm FREAKING OUT and crying hysterically.
  6. We have jumper cables but no one will stop to jump us off.  Finally some saint of a volunteer firefighter with a "Treeing Walker Coonhound Power" bumper sticker stops and jumps us off.  I love all rednecks from now on.
  7. We get get a new battery and pay $120.
  8. I get to work 4 HOURS LATE.
  9. Due to a gross head cold I can't talk and sound like Drita from Mob Wives.
  10. I end up leaving work early due to gross head cold/weirdness from the morning.
My day is finally getting much better and thank goodness for good people in the world and that me and KB are okay.   But still.....this has been the worst day in a long time.

Tomorrow can only get better!


  1. Poor thing. You need ice cream!! STAT.

  2. Oh I hate day like this! Like you said, there is always tomorrow! :) haha

  3. Sounds like my whole week. Hope you had a fabulous weekend!


  4. Holy Moly! That was a terrible day. I'm so glad that you are okay, first of all. Because getting stuck in traffic like that w/a dead battery can be a wee bit dangers, especially in the rain!

    That you referenced Drita made my day, however, I must tell you :)

    Seems like things are getting better, and let's just hope they stay that way!
