the (not so) midas touch

I am not a golden girl it seems.

2009 appears to be clumsy and ill-fitting. Or maybe it was just yesterday.

(There wasn't even a full moon at work here.)

We were loading up the car to eat birthday lunch with Greg yesterday when I realized my GPS system - with the cute little black car, like mine - was gone baby gone. I must have left my car unlocked at some point this week and someone helped me clean out my car.

And it went downhill from there.

I nearly bit it in the icy parking lot.

I locked myself out of the house, while on a walk with Lexi, because I had removed my key to get more keys made on a day when my husband's ETA would be approaching midnight. Yay, me! Brilliant!

(I called BFF Jen and she called Kind Neighbor Friend Kristy - Realtor Extraordinaire - and she was able to open the lock box that is still on my door. Tragedy averted.)

And to repay Jen for feeding my fam dinner? I poured salsa on her floor. I'm nice like that.

I'm just glad I made it home in one piece, with nary an ER visit.

I'm applying bubblewrap and hoping for a slightly less interesting day.

Shana said...

Happy hour will make it all better. Promise.

Crappy crappy day - boo!

I was going to ask if you were channelling Ms. Kate - it does sound like her kind of day :-(

Hope today was better!

K. said...

Maybe.... you're getting the bad luck out of the way early this year?

Hope things get better quick!

I second Shana; sounds like you've already got two drinks covered tonight! :D We'll definitely have Stu drive us, just to be safe.

Bah. Sorry about all the nonsense.

I totally had a Midas-Touch-Not day last week. I called it that too.

Then it got better. But chocolate was involved. And bread pudding.

so NOT cool said...

Holy moly. I am glad that you survived the day. (I'm SO paranoid about falling on the ice.)

I like the bubble wrap idea. ;)

On the other hand you were in my dream the other night, and that made it good. ^_^

(ps it is doing that super-annoying thing again where it refuses to recognize me as a google/blogger user. grrr...)

I have totally had days like that. Glad you can keep your sense of humor (and your ability to form sentences). I am sure the rest of the year will be looking up from here. :)

Suzanne said...

Wow, yikes. Here's hoping tomorrow is totally uneventful... y'know, in a good way.

Wishing you a much better day!

Days like that - you need to play the Lottery because you know your luck is destined to change!

Take care - sorry about the GPS - those being stolen are always the headlines in our local police blotter.
