I once heard it said that life is what happen in between all the pictures. Pictures are just snap shots of the happy times
On Friday at the 11th hour we found out that we did not get the house. Great here I am at 6 p.m. on a Friday night and we find out that we did not get the house.
I sat down and cry ed. George just said to me " well lets go get a new house".
Rusty George and I spend Friday night looking for a new house. Then Saturday, Rusty and I got up and started looking again.
We finally found a house! We have signed the lease and today is moving day.
Last night I had to go to San Diego to get Amber. I thought that would be an easy task. Oh no. what the heck was I thinking.
I get down to the airport and I pull into the cell phone parking lot. Then I had to go to the bath room. So I go over to the coast guard station and ask them where the closet restroom is. The lady says to me "Take the second right and past the gazebo and then there is a rest room in the exchange."
So I follow the directions. The coast guard exchange is all of two vending machines and one toilet! I was in shock, but at least they had a toilet.
I get back to the cell phone parking lot and the little monitor says that Ambers had landed. So I head for the terminal. Amber calls me and says " Hi mom I am at lax" What? why are you at lax? That is 4 hours from me.
The weather was so bad in San Diego that the pilot could not land. So they were in L.A. getting fuel. O.K. I head over to Marine Corp recruit depot. I am going to cash a check and chill out for a few hours. Oh no, I can't cash a check there because that window was closed. Great. I am hungry and I have just enough fuel to get home.
Oh wait! There is a huge USO in San Diego. They serve free meals on Friday, and Saturday nights. So I am going to head over there. Then Amber calls me and say's " they are bussing us down to San Diego."
Then a few minutes later Amber calls back and tells me that she got a ride home. O.K. let me get back home. Now keep in mind. I have no money on me, and very little gas. The weather is crappy and raining to beat the band.
I call one of the marines up at Pendleton and ask him if he is at the base. He said yes. So I asked him if I could borrow $20 for gas and some food. He told me to come up.
I get on the 5 and I am heading to Pendleton. Right as I get off at my exit the car starts squeaking. O.K. a belt must be wet.
I get to our friends place and by now I can't turn the wheel. Our friend looks at the car and says you are not going anywhere. You broke a belt on one of the pulleys.
So my friend gives me a ride home.
Now lets recap.
Lost house, found house, lost house, found new house, go to San Diego for a child that is not there, break a belt, have to find a ride home, now we are going to be moving in the rain.
I must say that I am laughing! I have two choice. Laugh or cry. So I am laughing.
I am going to be turning off my alerts. I will be back in a few days.
