My terrible horrible no-good very bad day...and a half
well it all started in Wednesday (mittwoch) I was on my way to pick up the girls from French class (which is a really long ways away, adn I had Teddy with me wich is always stressfull and full of 'nein!'s and 'Benimdig!'s) when one of the girls on the volleyball teamI had been practicing with texts me and said that I could'nt come anymore becasue i missed too many practices!? (I had to miss the last three to watch the kids)...Crazy!? esspecially when I told them i didnt want to be on the team I just wanted to practice with them!... anyway.. so that sucked. Then I finally get to the french class and haul teddy up the 8 flights of stairs only to find out that the girls will be sleeping at a friends house, so i didnt need to go at all....and that was wednesday...so Thursday I wake up SOOO tired... and take teddy to Nursery, I decided I was to tired to deal with my language teacher so I went back home to bed and woke up when I needed to get everyone from school... when I woke up it was really hot so I put on some capri' and a T-shirt with flip flops and left. As i was making the last turn to the girls school a bunch of scarey looking Turkish guys were yelling at me that my tired was flat...and it was...and then it started raining, really hard. The Turkish guys tried to come help me change it but I could'nt find anything to jack the car up with... so I called Amelie to see what I should do (still outside, still raining) I got the number for the ADAC which is like AAA, so they could come help, and let us not forget that I'm speaking my terrible broken german at all times. So the ADAC says they'll call me 5 minutes befor they get there so I can go somewhere inside to wait....SO I go get the girls from the school (who were supposed to have a doctors appoinment...missed that) and take them to a bakery across the street... we ordered the food and everything then I realizied I didnt have any cash only a bank card.. and for some reason NO ONE takes bank cards here!?! so we didnt get any food... then we walked outside just as the ADAC guy was pulling AWAYY from my Car! (long german story short, he came back) so the girls and I are there waiting for him to fix it... me soaking wet the girls withthe umbrella...and all the sudden the jack slipps off the car and it comes crashing down...I guess it was okay but he basically had to start all over and it was taking forever, so one of the mothers from johanna's class offered to take the girls to her house to get them out of the rain...so they went...the car was fixed about 20 minutes later.. I signed something I didnt understand, and got the girls from a REALLY difficult to find house....THEN we went to pick up teddy only to find that his bag had been sent home with some other kid... not a big deal but still annoying...We went to the house, and I told the kids they could watch a movie because i was to tired to play anything...so they watched a movie and made them some dinner, then they had to go to bed.. so i went to pull up the screen (they have this really big expinsive pull down projector screen) and it came crashing down.. yep i broke it....I put the kids to bed, and decided that I needed to go running to releive some stress, i took my keys and my phone with me, becasue amelie and mathias werent home yet and if the kids needed anything they could call me, when i got back from my run I realized I had lost the phone, it was too dark to go back track my steps, so I woke up at like 5 the next morning and did the whole run again trying to find it with no luck.... it was a terrible horrible no-good very bad day... and a half...
