Oh goodness. What a day. Nothing awful, just seems to be shaping up into one of THOSE days. It is my late day, so I had gotten the kids to school, did my voting, finished laundry, and was planning to spend some time just relaxing. You know how I loves me some relaxing. Anyway, I get a call from my auto insurance company wanting Social Animal's contact information. Apparently, he rear ended someone sometime yesterday...and he neglected to tell me. He is an adult, yes, but he is on MY insurance. I gave the nice lady his number and then called him myself. He was very - oh, yeah, it was nothing, I barely tapped them...something, something... Whatever. I just told him he should have mentioned it to me and he should have called the insurance company himself right when it happened. *sigh* So there was that. Then I start getting texts from Handsome Lad telling me that if he doesn't pay for a textbook, he won't be able to go on a field trip tomorrow, report card witheld, all that. Okay, I know that is the policy, but since I hadn't yet gotten a notice or bill, I was rather surprised he was being dealt with like that. I called the school librarian and asked her how much I owed...$57.50. I wasn't shocked, I know as well as anyone that text books are expensive. I did say, though, that I had reported this book lost (when his backpack was stolen from my car) at the beginning of the year and hadn't been billed, that I still hadn't received notice and yet he was threatened to be disqualified for a field trip happening in less that 24 hours. I felt kind of bad for getting upset. I know how busy the school librarians are at this time of year. However, the fact is that if I hadn't called her, Handsome Lad would have been punished for something that really isn't his fault. Anyway, she agreed to clear him for the trip and I agreed that now I actually knew what my bill was I would pay it. Humph.
So, that was a long story about a couple of pretty minor things that just sort of harshed my mellow, you know? haha! Let me lighten things up for Talk Talk Tuesday. I wanted to try and choose my favorite Saturday Night Live catch phrase, but that is a pretty impossible task! Given my mood, I decided to go with this one...
Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.
