Twas a Tuesday, Twas

My morning began by discovering Diva Furnace failure. Happens every year. I went to work, “Mentor, what happens at my house every winter?” and she knew. She didn’t have to guess twice or anything. Diva Furnace has been meeting temps since I saw the panic-inducing 64 and with any luck, a new filter will suffice.

Sassy has a cold. She just got over one cold and now she has a new cold. Stupid Tuesday.

On my way to work, I saw a vehicle on fire. Fire!!! The fire was twice the height of the vehicle. I said aloud to Vivaldi’s Winter, “Lordamercy it sure is a Tuesday.” Of course, along with vehicle fires, there are firefighters, and I’d be lying if I said they didn’t cheer me some.

The phones rang mad today. We dunno. Everyone called, like their phones didn’t work until Epiphany passed and then they all called at once.

A man I am not married to wronged me today, but then he apologized. Small miracles. I made sure to tell my husband how the other man’s apology impacted me, just in case he was listening.

I fueled Blanche, but the thingy clicked before she was filled. I had thought fuel prices were extraordinarily low, but once I got back in and turned her on, I saw. Not full. So Tuesday.

Took Moo back to the orthopedist today. She was released from care and will continue with PT. While I was using the restroom, they took her back to the exam room, and when I returned, they seemed to have lost my daughter, but then, like, they found her. That could be a whole nother blog, but not today.

I worked late to make up my time, and also because once the phones are off, a bitch can get shit done. I text The Mister:

How sweet is that?!? Isn’t that the sweetest?!

Came home to goat cheese pizza, lovingly baked by my daughters.

All’s well that ends well, but that sure was a Tuesday!

    Sounds like it was a Monday that turned into a Friday by the end, thus, Tuesday…

    Ya know that medieval scene when the armored and weaponized knight takes a brief knee and taps his chest. My new “another Tuesday survived” gesture. πŸ™‚ On to the midweek of hump day. A nod and thumbs up to Sir Mister.
    I so fucking want pizza right now.

    Oh, how I remember that working late business and calling my daughter. You are so blessed to have that man. Here’s to sweet families and happy endings and not working late so much.

  7. Glad you survived until today, Joey, at least I’m assuming you did. That pizza looks amazing but as I made meatloaf last night, I’m not jealous. 😘. That furnace thing? Not so much fun. Ours stopped working right before Christmas but thankfully a) it was fairly warm outside the few days and b) a lovely man (not a fireman, though) came out on Christmas Day!!! and got it going again. Our California family members were particularly grateful.

    Here’s hoping you have a fantastic Wednesday.

    Proof positive that it takes a village to beat Tuesday. What a bunch of sweethearts you got there. Good people, every one.

    I hope the rest of the week soars high for you.

    making up time–damn. I showed up today. Pay me!

      LOL! They DO pay me, even when I leave for an appointment, BUT I’m behind in my tasks because of all the time we took off compounded with the time other businesses closed — so I truly felt the appointment’s delay.

    Well Jake may not apologize when you want but he secures the parking lot for his Lady Fair. Daughters that cook for the parents is a wonderful thing

    Over the holidays we watched A Christmas Story and in the movie, every time the dad started fighting with the finicky furnace I thought of you guys πŸ˜€
    Let’s hope for more Tuesdays in 2020 that don’t act like they need so much attention.

    My daughter calls me too as she walks to her car in the parking garage after work. I’m gad she does. My keto version of pizza did not look (or taste I’m sure) nearly as good as yours!

      It’s comforting to have that — I’m glad you provide that safety for your daughter. When I was single and came home to an empty house, I used to call my ‘not then MIL’ to talk to while I checked it all out.

    I’ve always said Tuesday has the least amount of personality out of all the weekdays, but umm, yours certainly wasn’t lacking.

    That is *totally* the sweetest. A very good man indeed. An even better one if he listened and learned from the man-who-was-not-your-husband-but-apologized-for-wronging-you story.

    That’s quite the Tuesday, Joey. Thank goodness it’s almost Friday and that means almost the weekend. Another pizza perhaps?

    The doctor never loses my people. It only takes one time of standing in the hall, calling someone’s name and listening for their response for office staff to become EXCEEDINGLY meticulous about letting me know where they’ve taken my people.


  27. I’m reading this on a Friday, so Tuesday (and all its inherent shit) is in my rear-view mirror. Of course, I’m girding my loins in preparation for NEXT Tuesday, cuz that’s just how it goes here in the hamster wheel.


  28. That fab looking pizza ended your Tuesday on a happy note.


  29. Amy says:

    Whew! That sure does sound like a Tuesday. I’m glad the Mister was the sweetest and the daughters lovingly baked you a pizza. And what a good looking pizza that is!!
