Yesterday was quite the day. I think it was officially the worst day of my life to date. It started with the noises that kept me up until 3 in the morning. Then I was awoken at 8 am, and got up and finished my packing and house cleaning. I had to pull our bikes and grill into the apartment, and it had poured rain throughout Thursday night, so everything was soaking wet. I should have known that with a start like that it would have been better to of stayed in bed…
But I didn’t. I headed on my merry little way about noon. Unfortunately for me it wasn’t an uneventful day. About 3 I stopped for gas and the car wouldn’t start back up again. I sat at the gas station for 45 minutes until a rough and tough looking biker dude offered to help me out. He got the car started, so I continued on my drive up north.
Then the window broke. The drivers window got stuck half way up – and would not budge!! I bundled up with a hoodie and a jacket, and put the heater up on high.
Then it started to rain. I had to sit under a bridge until the rain let up.
By then I had to pee really badly, but I couldn’t go inside anywhere since the window was down – I didn’t want to leave my things accessible to people. So I pulled behind a Wal-mart and pee-ed outside. Noticing a little too late that the spot I picked was within site of the highway. Hopefully no one was looking!!!
By the time I got to my parents it was 9:30 – a nine and a half hour drive!! (It should be just six hours.) But the adventure wasn’t over for me…
I got food poisoning from a burger and I was up all night long throwing up. I didn’t much sleep, and I am now exhausted and weak. What a way to start my vacation!!
I was able to talk with Paul this morning. He had just gotten off from a 26 hour shift!! Yikes. Sounds like his day was just about as bad as mine was!!! But he now gets a 12 hour break, and then will start the night shift and from now on he will work 12 hours on then 12 hours off.
