Bad Day...Good Night

I am not a bad driver. I've never been in a wreck, and I've had a couple speeding tickets, but overall I'm safe out on the road. However, I do suffer from road rage. I do honk my horn at people who clearly deserve to be honked at. But I don't flip people off, that's just tacky. Well yesterday, I was getting off the Slide exit on the Loop going back to work after lunch, and I was going to get in the right lane. The car in front of me wanted in the right lane too, and he could have gotten in front of me safely, IF the car in the right lane hadn't decided that he was going to turn right all of the sudden. So I had to slow down pretty fast which caused the other car not to be able to get in front of me. So this...woman (please read that with a pause in front of woman, b/c I have a really hard time not wanting to call her something else) thinks that I'm cutting her off, and she gets in front of me after that car turns and starts to give me a "thank you wave" or so I thought. I put my hand up to give her a "your welcome wave" when I see that in fact that is not a "thank you wave" but a very large middle finger. She then proceeds to slam on her breaks so that maybe I'll hit her. I thought about giving her the bird back, but I didn't, I just honked really loud. I even thought about turning where she did and just asking her what her problem is, but I'm really afraid that might have escalated into something else much worse and I'd be in jail right now. I have never been soooo mad in my life at a driver. It was just so uncalled for. Yesterday, Tuesday was just a bad day. Work has been insane. Whoever said the real estate market had leveled out or slowed down for that matter must be smoking crack, b/c we are on fire. In fact the Coldwell office in Lubbock had it's best month in its history in May. MegAmerica, Coldwell's Mortgage company that I work for is closing 29 loans this month. Yesterday anything that could go wrong was going wrong. Fortunately today was much better, and we got a lot done, and I think I'm going to survive. After I left work yesterday, I wasn't sure. And that whole being flipped off incident didn't help. It just made my blood boil even more. When I came home from work we went and ate with some friends, and then Nathan and I took the kids to the drive in to see "Cars". Great movie!!!!! We had a lot of fun. It was a perfect end to a bad day. We like to go to the drive in. Madi really likes it. Kyle was a little bit harder to deal with, but he eventually settled down and finally fell asleep. Which is more than I can say for him right now. It's 9:15, and he still won't go sleep. He is the most stubborn little thing. Anyways, well I hope you all are having a good week!

You gotta love Lubbock drivers, eh?! They are not much better in Abilene either...

I had a similar experience in Lubbock once where some Tech punk kid cut me off on the loop, and when I honked at him-he flipped me off! How much sense does that make?!

Glad your day turned out to be good, after all! I love the pictures of your kids-they are too cute. Hope you are having a blast with them. Blessings~

Lubbock drivers stink. Yes I am not using the other word you do with your thumb anymore.
