Yes, I'm Talking to You

To the lady in the minivan who stopped to help yelled and honked like a mad woman when we had to pull our car over on ever busy Spadina. After it got rearended by a streetcar. I suppose you would've preferred us to stay in the middle of the road so you wouldn't have had to change lanes. What is the matter with you?
~
To the streetcar driver, you seemed very kind. And I don't want this accident to cost you your job. But please do not say we "suddenly hit the brakes" and decided to turn. We had our signal on the whole time. And came to a gentle stop as we generally do when we approach stoplights. Hopefully this was a first for you and the TTC will let this one slide.
~
To my Krummer ladies, thank you for keeping me calm. Heart you to the moon and back.

To S, my sweet S, I'm sorry I didn't believe you when you said "it's been a bad week" even before this accident happened. But thank you for looking forward to the good that comes after a string of bad events. I love you.

And love, thank you for sharing Life Lesson # 289 with me: When you shake a bottle, without its cap on, it will make a mess.
Yes darling, that is what tends to happen. I'm sorry you got it in on your bag, sweater, papers. And face. Sweetheart, you need to look at what you are doing. Sometimes.

To the people at UPS, how on earth did you scrap the first line of the receiving address? Now you are left wandering the streets of Florida. Please note, all lines of the address are equally important. And should not be ignored.
~
To the people who decided one must drink 3 glasses of water to have the perfect amount so you can conduct your ultrasound, clearly your bladder is the size of Alaska. Mine however, is not.
~
To K, thank you for letting me go "just a lil bit" when you saw my eyes watering. I've learned that when your bladder is beyond full, it's gotta come out somehow.
~
To my dear Ela, yes you. When will you learn that: A full bladder + A belted outfit = A bad. Freaking. Idea.
I don't care that you got dressed and left the house before 6am. You need to think things through. More.

To my lovely readers, my bloggie friends, I'm sorry I haven't been around your digs lately. This week has been a tough one for me to manage. I have a sweet pea I'm worried about, a family friend in the hospital, a BFF who won't return my calls (is she OK? No idea), eventful days that will not allow me much computer time, and my body has finally caved and is trying majorly to catch up on some sleep. I'll be around soon. I promise.

  14. oh girl. you've had a lot going on. did you have an ultrasound? i hope it is the good kind and that you are doing just fine.

    driving is the thing that makes me the most angry in life. the traffic here. the accidents. it puts me in a bad mood every stinking morning. and fighting traffic to head to the dentist to pay money to HURT doesn't put me in a better frame of mind. GRRRRRRRRRRRR>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    anywhoo, hope you are ok!!! hang in there. this dumb week is almost over.

  17. Hey, sorry I haven't visited in a while. Been busy with this little screaming thing called Abby, going through growth spurts, a cold, and her shots!

    Hope things have been looking up for you!

    What was the ultrasound for? I remember having to fill up on water before my ultrasound and it was *painful* holding it in.

    One time I just had to pee even though it was 10 mins before the appointment. Didn't seem to make any difference so I'm not sure what the big deal is really...
