I haven't been to spinning class in AGES. I was going to be able to go tomorrow, yay! But, astute readers, I'm sure you noticed that I used the past tense there. Why?
Because when we got to the park-n-ride this afternoon, we discovered that we had a flat tire (driver's side rear). We had just aired the tires up a couple of weeks ago, so we doubt it was a leak. Other evidence that it wasn't just a leak: the car parked facing us also had a flat. So now the question is, did we just happen to drive over the same thing that punctured our tires, or were they slashed?
We shall know more tomorrow. I flagged down a transit police car while I was waiting for AAA (because the factory puts the tires on way too tight) and filed a police report - if there is evidence that it was vandalism (and I'm pretty convinced that it was - M is less so) then our insurance will cover the repair with no deductible.
I am so so so tired. I had a hard time falling asleep last night (I think it was 1 before I really got to sleep) and was awakened by hail on the roof at 5:20 or so this morning and didn't really ever go BACK to sleep. I deliberately have not had any caffeine since first thing this morning in hopes of not having a repeat performance tonight. I almost fell asleep during How I Met Your Mother, which would have been criminal because missing the end... would have made me very sad. Robin Sparkles and all that. (I will not spoil because I know erinwrites
at least won't be watching it until tomorrow - or have you guys jumped ship to DirecTV or FIOS yet?)
And Thursday I get the fun of driving a random rental car, because we need two - M's gotta travel to a meeting for the day. His reimbursement for mileage will come out to JUST ABOUT the cost of having a rental car from 6 pm Wednesday night 'til 7:30 Friday morning, so that's good. (Why can't he just rent the car? Because he's going to Canadia and most car rental agreements don't include crossing the border.)
