Doubles can be good. As in double rainbows and double stuf Oreos. Then there's the bad kind of doubles, like double chins. This week, I didn't just have one sick boy, I had two...double trouble. We found out Monday that Adam had bronchitis, and Levi had a double ear infection.
Then Wes & I started feeling bad. I ran a fever for about 2 days this week. It was like a double header. We got through getting the boys taken care of then it was time for game two: taking care of ourselves (kind of like the stomach flu we had last month).
All I had planned for today was to drive to Iowa for a child care training (yes...here we go...another one of her crazy travel stories...). I ended up leaving much later than planned because I had to make a lengthy phone call about getting my wedding ring insured because, sure enough, another diamond fell out! I did a double take yesterday when I looked down and saw something missing! So this morning, I took my beloved ring to be repaired and appraised and ended up leaving much later than I planned.
I stopped for a relaxing dinner at Ruby Tuesday's around 5 pm and started reviewing my PowerPoint and notes for tomorrow. PowerPoint kept "encountering errors" and shutting down. Not a good feeling when I have 117 people to present to tomorrow! I used the GPS to find a Best Buy and was told I needed to uninstall and reinstall Microsoft Office. The problem was that my copy of Microsoft Office happened to be 8 hours away! To solve the problem, I had to double my copies of Microsoft Office by purchasing a new one! Two hours and $191 later, I was able to get back on the road.
I am not superstitious, but I am thankful Friday the 13th doesn't come along very often! I am glad to safely be in my hotel room (and no, I'm not staying at a DoubleTree).
Have a great weekend!
