It all started when I had to go get the oil changed in my jeep this morning. I was the only customer in the entire building and they still took over an hour to get it done. This only made me mad because I had somewhere that I needed to be, and they totally made me miss it. Also the kids where bored and into everything there.
Then I had a quick few minutes to get home and get the kids some lunch before we headed out again. I was going to take the kids to their Aunt's house while I go and do a wedding shoot at the temple. I was running a little late, but was able to make up for missed time with little traffic across town. I was able to drop off the kids and make it to the temple in just enough time.
The bride and groom came out and it started to rain just as the pictures where starting. We where able to work our way through it and we got some really cute pictures. After we were done with the pictures, I went and got into my jeep. I then realized that the passenger side window had been shattered and my purse had been stolen. I started to freak out. I kept thinking that this couldn't be happening. About 5 years ago my car was stolen and it had my purse in it then too. It was a disaster then because they used checks and and credit cards before we could cancel the accounts. So all I could think about was that I was going to have to go through all that again, and the fact that my Ipod was in it too. *SAD, I just got it a few months ago* I started to cry. I didn't know what else to do. I was so mad. It is the worst feeling to be robbed.
Well, I ended up waiting around for the police for what seemed like forever. Really it was 2 hours. WAY too long in my book, but whatever, they have bad guys to catch right? The grounds keepers at the temple came and broke out the rest of the window and cleaned it all up so I could drive home.
On the ride home it took everything I had to not have a breakdown in the car. To make things worse, I sat in traffic on the freeway for about and hour and a half because the freeway had been just been closed down for a car accident. I guess that a semi truck rolled over and was blocking all the lanes. It made me miss my next meeting that I had this afternoon. I also found out on the ride home that the idiot that stole my purse did actually use my debit card at a gas station. I can barely afford my own gas let alone a thieves gas! I was even more furious! What a mess!
I was so stressed and so mad that I really thought that my head was going to explode. I had the worst headache and I was in the worst mood! When I went and got the kids they were being grumpy because they could tell that I was grumpy! They fought the entire rest of the ride home! I could not take it anymore!
I was a little worried to go to my sister's baby shower tonight because I was in such a rotten mood, but wouldn't you know that it is the exact thing that made me feel a little bit better.
I can look at it now and know that I am blessed. It could have been tons worse. I also know that something good will come out of it. These types of things always happen to me and something good always comes out of it. I am thankful for my loving family to help me smile and keep me focused on the good things in life. Without them I would be ready to kill the world right now!
