i wake up around 6:30 every morning to take hobbes out and start our day. usually the walk consists of a lap or so around the building and a greet to at least one of our neighbors. this morning was not much different except for when i saw the tow truck pull into the parking lot. my first thought was it must be turning around but then my brain went into overdrive…
‘crap they are going to tow my new car because it is not listed on the lease yet‘ followed closely by ‘damn they figured out that kevins car is not registered and we have three with only a two bedroom apartment‘ and concluded with ‘i guess they are not aiming for our cars, i wonder whose car is being re-poed!’
is it the guilty catholic conscience i was born with? or a guilty pleasure of seeing someone else’s car towed at 6:30 in the morning.
almost simultaneously a HAZMAT truck pulled into our parking lot. to which my first-very morbid thought i might add-was ‘which murder scene are they cleaning up now?‘ but then i reminded myself that the last time the HAZMAT truck was in our parking lot it was proceeded by many other large crime scene investigation trucks and we were not allowed to leave for an insane amount of time.
after all that excitement, i fed the boys breakfast and started to get myself ready for work. usually i already have an idea of what i am going to wear, but not this morning. it was one of those days when you stand in front of the closet wrapped in your towel thinking ‘i HATE everything that is hanging in front of me‘ followed by the overwhelming urge to put on your comfy pants and over-sized sweatshirt and call it a day.
i scrounged together something resembling a work type outfit and called it a day, but not before i made the comment to kevin that i hated everything i own and he responded with ‘ i know baby, we will fix that, i promise, i totally understand its one of those days where you don’t like anything and don’t feel pretty and nothing looks good, but you are pretty and i promise we will fix it.‘ he read my mind and made my day. god i love that guy!
