if only.

today i decided that i need one of these.

or better yet, one of these.

i'm sure you are wondering why. let me tell you. tonight, i had to drive to salt lake for another week of training for work. i got all of my stuff loaded in my car and was set to go...i got in and tried to start my car and it wouldn't start. seriously. i was so aggravated and annoyed and this is where the help button would have come in handy. after some deductive reasoning and a conversation with my dad, i determined that my starter went out and there was no way that i was going to be able to get that fixed on a sunday night.

after trying my darnedest to start the car, i resigned to the fact that i was going to have to come up with a plan b. i called my supervisor and asked if i could take a state vehicle to the training. she said she would have to check with our director and she would call me back. while i was waiting, i decided that i should call my grandma to see if she would be willing to let me borrow one of her three cars. and of course, being the awesome grandma she is, she was completely willing to help me out.

i would have preferred not to have to deal with any of the above, but in the end, it all worked out. well, minus the fact that when i get back to logan, i will have to get my car fixed.

now, after i was on the road and about 45 minutes south of the valley, i remembered that i had forgotten my training material. yes, i had to turn around and go back to my house to get the lovely binder of very important information (note the sarcasm).

needless to say, 5 hours after i had planned, i finally made it to the big slc. so yeah, an easy button or a help button would have come in very handy today. on most days, truly, but especially today.


  1. well, at the very least you know you can count on grandma. heehee. aaaaand you'll be seeing me this week as well. could you ask for anything more?

  2. Wow, that is a rough way to start the week. I hope that you enjoy using that awesome binder this week.
