I think my husband's bad week is rubbing off on mine.
Today after work I had to go to our church for the rehearsal/rehearsal dinner for the wedding Brad is playing in this Saturday. The rehearsal started at 5:30 & Brad was already there practicing. I worked a little late to tie up some loose ends there because i'm off tomorrow for Brad's grandmother's funeral. Work & Church are on the same boulevard & the theatre is on a little side street just off of that boulevard. On my way to the church, i needed to run by the theatre to drop off some extra preview tickets i had. So i turn at the theatre & BAM!!
I hit this curb/drain thingie. Wasn't paying enough attention. And my tire went flat in an INSTANT. I got out & looked at it & just - oh my gosh!! (Did i mention that my sideview mirror fell off this morning? Yeah -it's hanging by a thread). The tire had a sharp horrid looking hole & the rim is bent. NICE. Well, i couldn't call Brad b/c i knew his phone wouldn't be on b/c he's playing at this rehearsal. Even if it was on, he wouldn't be able to answer it. Plus i didn't want to stress him out in the middle of practicing - I mean, he's had a really stressful & overwhelming & frustrating week! Normally if i couldn't get Brad in this kind of situation, i would call my dad or Brad's dad. But they were both at the wake for Brad's grandmother!!
So i just walked to the theatre. And i get there & am thinking i hope SOMEONE will drive me to the church. Everyone was there for the Sound of Music preview night. So i get there & my friend Robert (who is Asst. Stage Managing Sound of Music) is like "what are you doing here?!" b/c i said i couldn't be there for preview. And i told him what happened. And he's like "here, take my keys". So he gives me his keys! I was like "How am i going to get your truck back to you?!" & he was like "after the rehearsal dinner, brad will follow you here, you'll drop my truck off & go with him." YAY! (Great friend, he is!)
So i took his keys & left. Got to the church & Brad was on stage practicing. I sat there for almost an hour & i was so nervous! I didn't want him to be mad at me (which i knew he wouldn't - he doesn't get mad at things like that) but i didn't want to add one more thing to his week becausec he's terribly stressed. So anyway he comes over to me after he gets a break from playing & as soon as he got to me i said "Something happened & you're going to be really upset" & i started CRYING! Right there in the church! Wonderful! (I didn't even expect that to happen!) UGH! He, of course, was totally nice & sweet about it. He had to go back up to practice, so i ran to the bathroom to fix my face. :)
After the rehearsal, he followed me back to the theatre, i parked Robert's truck, ran inside to give him the keys & then rode with Brad back to where my car was. And GUESS WHAT?!
Ii busted TWO tires. Not one - TWO! BOTH have horrid holes & BOTH have bent rims! I CANNOT BELIEVE I DID THAT!! I was so upset! Well, Brad wanted to call his dad b/c he always calls his dad for stuff like that but his dad was at his grandma's wake!! So i texted his sister to have his dad call me as soon as he could. So we go to the rehearsal dinner. And ate & all that & all is okay now. His dad called us back & tomorrow we're going to get it fixed. Hopefully my car will be safe there!
So tomorrow the funeral is at 10 am & Brad is a pallbearer. We have to be there at 8 o'clock in the morning! If you know me, you know i'm not a morning person & you could probably imagine that i was looking forward to sleeping in just a little later than usual since i'm off work!! If i had my car, i could go on my own at 10. But I have to ride with Brad. So i can't sleep in. Then we have the funeral, the burial & all that & then we'll hopefully get my car taken care of. Tomorrow is also opening night & i am NOT going to miss it! But tomorrow is going to be exhausting. I hope i can get a nap in before opening night. & i hope i can have transportation to the theatre! ACK!
So yeah - tonight was not that great. And i know i sound mighty selfish. And i'm sorry. Just tired, overwhelmed, stressed & upset! Saturday will be better!!
