Can anyone be more mentally smashed than I am at the moment? It's been a long day, and I swear, there is something about car dealerships/salesmen that gives me a raging headache and tenses me up like nothing else.

Even leaving the place didn't help. Made me late picking Josh up, so I was going a little faster than I should have been down a residential street ... which happened to be patrolled by a policeman because of an accident (I think) on the major street next to it (the were redirecting traffic). So I got a speeding ticket. The officer asked me if I had a reason for going 41 in a 25, I said " I'm really late picking my son up from school" he said "Ok, we'll have out of here in a few minutes". Ten minutes later I had a ticket for over $100 and was now 45 minutes late picking Josh up. That was a very long ten minutes, officer, thank you. And because of the accident and resultant traffic backlog ... instead of being a mere 1/2-hour late picking up the child, I was an hour late.

And that led to complaints from him because he "was the last kid left at school". Then home to eat (I really should eat better/bigger breakfasts, but I didn't think we would be at the dealer for 5 hours). Then, oh no! I had forgotten about an appointment I had made, and have I gotten any of my paperwork done yet for this week .... no...

Well, done ranting for now, have to read the kidlet his bedtime story.

The rest of the evening went a little better than the morning and early afternoon and Lord knows I'm tired enough to sleep till 10 tomorrow morning. But, I can't do that, got an Art Lit meeting at Josh's school at 8:15 in the morning.

How did this week get so darn busy??????
