April Fool's Day

I could have sworn it was yesterday. Honest to Pete, everything turned to mud all day long. The big dentist appointment turned out bigger than expected. The dash on the QuiltMobile lit up like a Christmas tree when I started it in the morning. That thing was in the shop just three weeks ago for a full, regularly scheduled maintenance checkup! And I'm going to have to work both days this weekend.

Anyone planning to attend my pity party, please bring wine!!!!

UPDATE:

No, it's today, definitely today!

Five blocks from the house, the car pooped out. Called AAA, turned on the emergency flashers, and waited. I was in a turn lane. Cars were pulling up behind me and honking their horns. When they'd finally figure out there was a problem (no, I was just sitting there for the fun of it), they'd go around me, and there were a lot of *birds* flying at me during that process. Finally after half an hour, a nice young man stopped and asked if I needed help. I told him AAA was on the way, but thanked him profusely and told him he was the only one who stopped to ask! Then shortly after that, a young lady stopped and asked. She even offered to stay with me until the tow truck came! Two nice people out of about fifty. Anyway, a ride in the tow truck to the dealership, checking it in, then waiting for the rental to pick me up, I'm finally at work.

If anyone is planning to attend my pity party, please bring wine - and your checkbook!!!

I've been there--- completely understand your feelings. Nothing quilt fabric won't fixed... order away--- I'm in love with Wildrose by Blackbird designs......It's cheaper than a therapist.

Vicky, that same thing happened to me one morning. I was able to pull into a little inlet street and parked there to wait for AAA. About 20 guys pulled out of that development and kept going but the one lady who was leaving, stopped and asked me if I would like her to wait with me or if there was anything I needed that she could help with. So much for chivalry! Hope your teeth and car both get fixed fast and cheaply! Cheese and wine are good, but a fabric fix is better.
