I'm On a Roll Here

So after my last episode where I locked myself out of the house on Saturday afternoon, the next morning I decided to do an encore....

I was planning to run out on Sunday morning to buy my two Sunday newspapers so I could sit on the couch and let my sore toe heal. I started the car and rolled back a couple of feet. The noise I heard under my car stopped my heart. I put the car in park and jumped out. The car was resting on a bowling ball!!!!When I emptied out the two brown plastic crates yesterday to use them to stand on, I neglected to put the bowling ball in a secure spot (so it wouldn't roll under my car).

Now what? The ball was stuck right where one might place a jack if one had a flat tire. I couldn't just pull it out. I twisted it and it came right out and the car let itself down to the normal position (without a bowling ball).

I drove to the store to buy my newspapers and came home and stayed in the house the rest of the weekend.

Some people just shouldn't be left home alone.

Well, at least Monday is almost here and you will once again be safe and sound. Well, safe anyhow:)

You make me feel better. At least I'm not the only one who does stuff like this.

Now I need to go back and read up on the sore toe.

At least no harm was done (to the car anyway).

Hang in there.

I just hate it when I make plans and things go awry! Hopefully the rest of the weekend was a little less stressful. At least the cats had fun!
