AN UNLUCKY DAY

There are days you better stay in bed and don't move ! My day started when I woke up, stretched myself in all directions, hit the shelf over my bed and had a rain of cat figures falling on my head.



I got up and stepped with one food into something wet and disgusting which was a nice portion of barf of one of my 4 cats. Of course there was no signature. On one foot I hobbled to the bathroom, washed my foot, then cleaned the souvenir of course left on the rag and not on the parquet, which would have been easier to clean. My cats are posh !

Before I collected all the cat figurines on my bed and put them back on the shelf, I made myself a coffee, to get some strength to start the day ! When I came back I noticed that I had no internet connection ! This was a catastrophe. Mr. G. my specialist in computer problems, had just woken up and heard the bad news before his coffee, which taught me to better wait until he had swallowed his first cup. Swearing in his best Italian, he sat amongst the cat figurines on my bed and took out all cables from my computer ! Then he pulled and tried to disentangle the cable mess, connected them again with the result that now even my mouse didn't work anymore. In the middle of this stressful operation my cleaning lady showed up to inform me that the vacuum cleaner had given up its soul.

Finally Internet came back and I could continue to prepare my posts. I thought I better don't move too much today, there might be other misfortunes.



One lucky moment was when at 11 am I had to pick up my new car. I drove with Mr. G's old car to the Garage which they wanted to take back. I left in the sunshine with the 10 year old car and arrived in pouring rain at the garage. After some explanation and paperwork I got my new car and at least could try out that the windshield  wipers worked. Fortunately I was used to the Toyota Yaris hybrid, as I had driven my friend's one when we went to the Geneva Lake. I stopped at a household store, bought a new vacuum cleaner, and arrived home safely.

I fell on the sofa and had lunch while watching my little innocent crime story, without blood and shooting, but this time I was not so lucky an old lady died in her apartment and was found with 3 fingers missing which had been eaten by her 5 cats who obviously had been very hungry.

Mr. G. prepared the supper and forgot to put the bowl in the Micro wave, which turned empty for 5 min. When he wanted to stir for another round of 5 min, he realized that no bowl was inside and he had to wait for his supper. Unforgivable because his stomach is like a train schedule and we eat at 7 pm and not at 7.10 !

What a day !

"his stomach is like a computer and we eat at 7:00"...
I love that, Gattina.
My husband doesn't realize my stomach has a computer, too, and if I'm not fed at the right time, my blood sugar gets off track.
He is very good at forgetting things he has known for years. For instance, that he married a sick person who had no intention of being a housewife. He would rather climb over dirty laundry to get to his bathroom than wash it himself.
Men, can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em...
Luv, K
(Cats, too, sometimes.)

I don't deal with any dramas until I have had my first cup of coffee which I take back to bed.
A very smart new car, new vacuum cleaner and the cat barf was on the floor not the bed. Three things to feel good about.

You didn't get an Oscar as a vacuum cleaner? I suppose there is no need if you don't have to push it around.

You may have had a bad day but you started mine with peels of laughter. I know you shouldn't laugh at other's misfortunes but I couldn't help it. Love your new car. Wondered why you were sitting in the passenger seat until I put my brain in order.

Ah, yes, I remember the days of stepping cat barf!!
Mu husband is my computer support person as well and can get very exasperated with me!

Goodness. I think we've all had days like this. Luckily, they don't occur too often!

Karen S. said...

Cute car! Ultimately I'm feeling a bit under the weather in spirit myself, but I wrote myself out of it somewhat with my u post! Imagine that!

What a wild day, beginning with your cute cat collection raining down on your head. You were brave to even venture out of the house.

Sarah~Magnolia Surprise said...

Sounds like all manner of cats were out to get you! Watch out! Feed them or they'll eat your fingers! Yikes!
I know your day seemed awful while it was happening, but it sure was hysterical to read about it after the fact!!

Judie said...

Haahaha! I have days like that! AND they become more frequent the older I get!!!

Sue said...

A comedy of errors, but a very cute car!

I just love your sense of humour. You had me giggling in my moment of stress trying to book flights to LA.The car looks a beauty and a hybrid too, wow. How does that work?

Pam said...

I think we all can relate to days like that -makes us appreciate the good ones - but the new car was a lovely boost - looks great!
When I was newly-married my cat barfed on the carpet just as my very 'house-fussy' mother-in-law was coming down the drive-way to visit - great timing!
