Even though it's only about 3:30, can I just go to bed and start this day over again? Please?

My week has not been boring. Not one little bit. I had all the stress of filling out zillions of job apps, and then the next day, being miraculously hired.
On Wednesday, my mom's car got crashed into. My mom was just sittting at a stop sign waiting to turn, when the car turning onto her road ran smack into her. The lady driving, made a super short turn onto the road, and claimed she didn't see my mom's car. My mom was driving an SUV, the lady a tiny how that happened is beyond me, but she did a lot of damage to my moms car.
Friday, for the first time, I about fainted, and did it with an audience of the whole Dr's waiting room, and pretty much freaked out all the staff there. I had a TB test that I needed for my new job, and for some reason, it made me pass out. I've had lots of shots and bloodtests in my life, and even a TB test before, and this never happened. So I was a little freaked out by at, and doing it was such a large audience, I didn't really want to face those people ever again. :P

And then... there was today. This day was just weird from the beginning, when I slept in. I never sleep in. But this morning, not only did I not sleep in, my alarm clock didn't go off either. So I was late in getting up for church. It wasn't that big of a deal, because I was still ready in time, just minus breakfast. And normally I wouldn't care about breakfast, because half the time I skip breakfast anyways. But going along with my morning, this was the morning I was really hungry.
Also this morning, the weather wasn't very good. It was snowing, and there was only one pair of tire tracks going down my road. On perfect roads, my church is an hour away. So I was kind of thinking we shouldn't go. But my dad still really wanted to go, so I decided I'd go.
 Hmmm.... maybe if I hadn't none of this other stuff would've happened! :P

So we're about 15 minutes into our trip, and the roads were really bad. I was driving like 25 m.p.h. through town and stopping very early/slowly for stop signs and red-lights and stuff, and even so, I was still sliding a bit, and my brake peddle was kicking back at me, and my steering wheel was trying to do it's own stuff. I wanted to turn back, but my dad insisted that we'd drive out of it. And we did. But it took us 1 1/2 hrs to get to church, and we were 30 min. late for Sunday School. But we made it and the ride home was perfectly fine. But, that wasn't exactly a fun driver for me.

So we're on our way home from church and we needed some things from Wal-mart... To start off, my dad started my car for me this morning before I went out. So I left my keys in the house, and he was using a set of spare keys. Anyways, we get to Wal-mart and I don't have my little remote thing for locking the door. So my dad just locks it from the inside, and off we go.

Well, when we came out, and I unlocked my car with my key in the keyhole, it set off the car alarm. Okay weird, but whatever. Then I try to start the car, and it won't let me.


I guess when the security alarm is going off, you can't start the car.

So we call my mom to say we're kind of stranded in my own car... please come rescue us and bring my car remote!! Except my mom wasn't answering and wasn't answering. She was upstairs, and we don't have a phone upstairs, so she was totally oblivious to the fact that we were calling. About 20 mintues later, we finally get a hold of her. So she's gonna come get us... but oh wait... the boy's booster seats are in MY car.


Scratch that idea. She could still bring them, but if she got stopped for some reason, I think we'd get in trouble for not having them in booster seats.

So she calls our babysitter. Not home. We call some people we know around here. No one was home. So there's nothing there's nothing my mom could do.

Meanwhile, we're sitting in my car, trying stuff and everything was setting off the car alarm. Don't play around with the locks, touch the door knobs, open the doors, or try to start my car... because they all set off the alarm. Everyone in the parking lot was giving us strange looks. A couple people even stopped to watch.

"Yes, peoples! I am just trying to steal my own car here!" Okay, I didn't say that, but that's what I was beginning to feel like I was doing.

So we give up and call AAA. They gave us a few things to try, but nothing worked. So we had to wait for a tow truck, because we were going to get my car towed to my house.  So we sat in Wal-mart for about an hour waiting. The whole time I was starving, just dreaming of the left-over chicken pot-pie waiting for me at home for lunch. It was getting way past lunchtime.

Finally the tow truck gets there, and we go outside to meet him, and he has a car on his tow truck already, with people inside. It was one of those "You have got to be kidding me" moments.

BUT thankfully the guy got my car started. I guess there's a 5-second rule, where you have 5 seconds from the time you unlock your door to the time you start the car.

*Whew*. Because if he hadn't gotten it started, we would've had to wait another hour for him to get back to us, and the tow truck only seats one other person. So my dad would've went with him, and left me at Wal-mart, and I would've had to wait for him to come back and get me. It would've turned into an all-day Wal-mart ordeal ( I like Wal-mart, but not that much!). :P

So this day wasn't as bad as it could've been.... but who on earth knew this could happen? And who created the security system on a car? Good grief. :P

*NOTE TO SELF:* NEVER lock the car door from the inside and unlock it from the outside. Because your car will hate you for it. It will be convinced that you are a car thief. And while you're at it, never leave home again without the remote for your car.
