Scandal, there is nothing more to say than I love the show and I’m hooked! Thank you Shonda Rhimes, you are amazing. I may even start watching Grey’s Anatomy again, it’s looking good. Cyrus hit Mellie last night and put her back under the bus! Loved it!
Ok…..picture it with me…you put on a cute outfit, gotta run errands. Not dressy, just cute and casual. You take care of all your business, go to fill up your vehicle before you hit the road. I’m at least a 30 minute drive from my house. It’s cold out, wind blowing like crazy. I stand behind my SUV because it’s big and blocks some of the wind but I’m still watching the meter as the gas fills up. I was at half a tank before I started pumping, but notice that at $50 it’s still pumping, look at the pump and gas is spewing everywhere! The automatic valve that stops gas from pumping was broken and gas was spilling all over the place. So I had to grab the handle while it was spewing all over the place and finally got it to stop. By this time, I’m at $56.00 and gas is all over the ground. I go inside to report what’s happened, and I’m treated like I have the plague because I have gas all over me and gas is a powerful, strong odor. They get the manager, I tell her what happened. She tells me, we’ll give you one gallon of gas as a courtesy, after she reprimands me for not being with the vehicle. Excuse me? There is one gallon on gas all on me and I was standing here the whole time! Needless to say, I wasn’t happy and she had to go regroup and get her thoughts together.
I’m on the phone with my husband and he’s yelling, do this, tell them that. I’m at the Air Force installation mind you, he’s yelling they are there to serve us. I’m freaking out because I wreak the smell of gas and people are reacting to me being inside the store. It was 25 degrees outside, what you want me to do, stand outside? I go and put my coat in the car, after the clerk gave me a bag to put it in. The supervisor who chewed me out had changed her story and apologized for the gas pump not working properly, but she only gave me $8 back for two gallons of gas and offered to reimburse me for my cleaning bill. I took the info and left, glad to be out of there.
I had on a sweater coat, so everything got tossed in the washing machine as soon as I got home. I pull up to the house and across the street there are at least 15 police cars. WTH??? What in the world is going on? Apparently, they are looking for some criminal and I saw them arrest him. They had shot guns out, which made me nervous because it was about 30 minutes before school was out for my oldest daughter. By the time she got home, they had put their guns away but were still looking for something or someone. What a day, I was in the bed by 8:00 that night.
The weather here changes every 15 minutes. The picture above is from Tuesday, and the snow was from yesterday. We got mega snow yesterday, at least 6 inches by the time it finished in my neighborhood. It’s truly beautiful watching it snow, especially when you don’t have to leave the house. Everyone was home yesterday, I was relieved about that. We have plenty of food, so I stayed in my pajamas all day. It was so nice, I was able to get some writing done, and catch up on some of my favorite blogs. It’s a big mess this morning though.
Don’t forget to check out me out at Parent Society, I have two new articles released this week. I’ve been getting good feedback, one article is on transitioning my daughter into adulthood and the other is a list of things you don’t say to a woman over 50. I would sure appreciate if you all would go and check out my articles. Much love and appreciate the support.
