I have a killer headache because today was a long tiring day. It was my first day back at school after winter vacation so that means new classes. My mom came into my room early this morning to tell me she was driving me to school because it was snowing out a bit and she said she doesn’t trust me driving in the snow (she doesn’t trust me driving in the summer either though lol). Then she went on and on yelling at me about how my father saw me driving to fast down our street. My dad yelled at me yesterday but he shouldn’t talk. He drives faster than me and he has road rage!
So on the way to school my mom noticed an icon lit up on the dashboard telling her that there was a problem with one of the tires. We got to my school at 9:20 AM (my class started at 9:30) and my mom sees that her front left tire was flat. Some guy who was getting out of his car to go in the school notices that there is a problem so he says he will help. While he is trying to help us he sees the spare tire stuck under some metal bar and he can’t get to it since he doesn’t have any tools. We thank him for trying and then he leaves.
I call my dad and he says to tell my mom to call AAA. She tried and it couldn’t go through. Then I kept trying but we kept getting a busy signal so my mom called my dad and told him. Since class was starting I went inside to find my classroom. A different class took over the classroom I was supposed to be in. I was confused since I didn’t know where to go, so I waited for a few more people to show up. We waited for about 10 minutes and then another student appeared and said we were being moved to another classroom. The class seems to be a bit boring I think. It’s American Literature I and it’s on readings from authors before the Civil War. I like to read but I don’t like people telling me what to read. The teacher said if you miss more than a few classes you will get a zero. Ugh. I get sick a lot. Better not be sick for this class then!
When I get out of class I call my mom and I find out that my dad got through to AAA and it was going to be up to a 3 hour wait. A man from AAA told my dad that yesterday they got over 300 phone calls! 😮 That’s a ton. My mom was sitting in the schools lounge area so I sat with her. I felt like a nerd. First day of school and I’m trying to make new friends and I sit with my mom. Nice. Lol. The whole time she kept talking and talking to me. It was driving me nuts.
My grandmother had a doctors appointment scheduled for last Tuesday but because of the major snow storm she had to cancel it. She rescheduled it for today at 10:00 AM but because of the flat tire my dad had to take her. It was important for her to go because she has high blood pressure and the medicine she had been taking gave her a bad allergic reaction. 😦
My dad called and says he will be there in 2 minutes and AAA calls right after and said they will be there in 5 minutes. Me and my mom went outside to wait for them (in the freezing cold). Then my dad got there and I felt like the biggest nerd ever because I was at school with both my parents. The AAA guy comes and fixes the car but I can skip the details on that. Not really interesting. :p
After my class I had to go to work. Since I knew I was going to be late to work I called my boss and told her that. The good thing about my job is that I don’t have a specific time to go in at. I can make my own hours but I always go in at the same time. Since I got to work late I left late. Since I wasn’t expecting the flat tire to happen, I thought I would go to work, then come home and eat. But because of the flat tire everything got delayed so I hadn’t eaten. When I don’t eat much I get a bad headache. Now my head is killing me. Hopefully tomorrow will be better although I doubt it because we are getting more snow then and on Thursday. 😦 /Rant.
