Brian and Melissa went to see Alice in Wonderland and have dinner with friends from out of town Saturday. They had a good time and enjoyed the movie. Brendan stayed with me and spent the night. We had a good time and had fun. Sunday, however, was a different story. Not my day. The morning was fine. Brendan and I had breakfast, and he played. As I was getting him ready to leave for Nashville to meet Brian, he said he didn't want to go. I told him he'll be here three days in April.
We met at the Publix parking lot in Bellevue. All that was fine, too. They left and I went in to get a few groceries. As I was heading to the car and reached into my purse to get my keys, no keys. Yep, I locked them in the car. For some reason I put them in that console between the front seats instead of that pocket in my purse where I always keep them. I went to the customer service desk at Publix to ask if there were a security guard or policeman around who could help me get in my car. She said they aren't allowed to do that any more, which I recalled after she mentioned it.
She got me the number of AAA since I didn't have my card with me. Talk about planning! Why didn't I put it in there when I changed purses? She also wrote the address for the store which came in really handy, and in my panic never occurred to me to ask for. I went outside to call AAA and was afraid I hadn't sent in my renewal form and check. Of course! My membership expired March 1. I thought I would just cry and live at Publix right then. She said I could renew on the phone with a credit card, so I did gratefully. I'm not usually such a ditz but believe I got the Bernice award for all this so far.
I waited outside for over an hour and a half for the AAA truck. Fortunately, the weather was great - warmer and sunny. Felt good. It didn't take him long to unlock my car. I was so glad to be able to get home! Later on (too late) I wondered if I should have given him a tip. I was certainly thankful enough to have been generous. I googled it last night and got several different opinions on it. I still think I should have. What do you think?
The woman who answered the AAA call was very nice. Her first question was, "Are you in a safe location?" Then we went from there.
When I got home, I changed clothes and took a nap. Then to add to my already not-so-great day, when I woke up my foot hurt. I couldn't remember hitting it or anything and finally decided that something must have bitten me on the top of my foot. It still hurt just as much this morning and is reddish and swollen. I think it's a regular spider bite based on my online research. It really hurts.
So today has involved complaining about my foot. Yesterday definitely could have been better.
