Yesterday was my birthday and a day off from work,
It wasn't a complete waste of time, although I was sad that the green car wasn't done yet.
I got highlights put in my hair.
Also I got a lot of sleep.
My sister sent me these bracelets in the mail:
The blue one matched exactly my favorite shirt I was wearing!
This morning I called the painter and he said, the door strips weren't done yet.
He said once they are glued down, they won't be able to be moved.
I said fine, just do it.
He said the car would be done tomorrow.
Then he said, "Oh, um, your battery got stolen!"
He had left the car outside.
He said "I was telling you because you would notice it has a different battery."
I am so mad!!!! He is not supposed to leave it outside!
I said what if something else got stolen, and the car doesn't run?
He said it does run, because he put a different battery it and it runs, but I don't believe him.
There is no way I can leave the car there another night, even if he promises to lock it away.
He said he would get a new battery and finish the door strips by 6 pm.
That's no good, I said, because I have to be at work by 5.
(I tried getting out of work, but no one could substitute for me today.)
I will pick up the car at 4, I said.
What if the car isn't there at all???
I want to go there RIGHT NOW, but at least I have to give him a chance to stick the door pieces on it and get me a battery.
If there is a car left.
I don't know how I can make it through the next 3 hours.
I was making these "pearl" bracelets while I was on the phone with the car painter.
They came out very nice although I was so mad I could hardly see straight.
I will definitely have something to post up later tonight.
