TT # 26 - 13 Expressions for the Stressful Days

Because I have been stressin' lately, I thought this was appropriate. We DID get a truck. I will post about it as soon as I get some pics of it.

13 Expressions for Stressful Days

1. Don't bother me. I'm living happily ever after.
2. This isn't an office. It's Hell with fluorescent lighting.
3. I refuse to star in your psychodrama.
4. And which dwarf are you?
5. Therapy is expensive, poppin' bubble wrap is cheap! You choose.
6. And your crybaby whiny-assed opinion would be...?
7. I'm not crazy, I've just been in a very bad mood for 30 years.
8. Are these your eyeballs? I found them in my cleavage.
9. I'm not your type. I'm not inflatable.
10. I'm trying to imagine you with a personality.

You may (or may not) have noticed that I haven't been around commenting this past week. It's OK if you haven't noticed ;). I am stressed. Last Sunday, I was driving my husband's truck and the freakin' Engine Blew! Of course, I had the boys with me, so I stopped to call the husband since I didn't want to wait three hours for a tow truck to fit all three of us. Did he answer either phone? Of course not... So, I kept trying to start the dang truck and it kept making this really high revving noise. Then, the third time, there was no revving, just loud knocking. Well, I was only a mile and a half from home. SO, I turned up the stereo (I hate myself for lovin' you by Joan Jett - kind of fitting for the enraged feelings I had at that particular moment) and headed home.

So, long story even longer... we are looking for a truck. We didn't want to and it's not at all financially convenient right now, but we are. We have some things in our favor, though. The first and most important being that we have EXCELLENT credit. So, basically, these car salesman fall at our feet. They WANT to work with us, and we have the upper hand, so that's nice. That's also why it's taken a full week to find what we want. We aren't settling for less than we deserve. But, we weren't planning on doing this for a year {sigh}.

I will try to be better this week in posting. I have had a lot I have wanted to say, but all my spare time has been spent looking for a flippin' truck!!
