Not a fun day

We were going house hunting. We thought we had a potential winner, but it turned out to be a lead-paint hazard. As I pulled into the driveway of the second house we were looking at, I clipped the short brick wall that bordered the driveway entrance. I ripped a 4 inch hole in the side of my back tire. So my wife loaded the kids in her car and continued the morning looking at houses while I dealt with the tire. I ended up using AAA 'cause I'm not a real man that can easily change a tire without crushing myself to death. By the time we got the spare on the van, my wife was back. So I loaded up my daughter and went back to our apartment where my daughter fell about halfway down the concrete stairs leading to our second floor apartment. I've never been that scared before. She ended up being ok, but shit...what a morning. That afternoon I went to get a new tire which 'caused me to miss Lindsay's playdate and my wife had to cancel the surprise massage I had scheduled for her. Needless to say, tensions were high in the ol' red squirrel family.
So, my question to you guys is this: Who put a whammy on me? WTF??

I just read another friend's blog about how bad her day was yesterday... she called the day "cursed," in fact! So I don't think it was just you... and before you go thinking that since I am the common link, I must be the cause, it wasn't me, I swear! I'm glad Lindsay is okay.

That sucks man, I hope your days ahead are better.
Get all that bad stuff out in one day, then it's rainbows & unicorns from here on.
