Bad Luck Weekend

This weekend was supposed to be full of fun things. My parents were coming over and I had a lot planned. On Saturday it took my parents 6 hours to get to Atlanta. It normally takes 3.5 They were sitting still on I-20 for an hour and a half while a big wreck with a Fed Ex truck was cleared.

They finally arrived and my dad and I had tickets to see Elton John and Billy Joel together in concert. Long story short...I left the tickets at home, was locked out of my apartment and had no way to get in touch with my mom who had the key because her cell phone was upstairs with the tickets. My dad and I drove all over Atlanta looking for her until she finally came home around 9:30...2 hours after the concert began. Here are my sad unused tickets.

Also that night, I accidentally drove into the side of my apartment/garage and did this to my car... OUCH! I'm officially one of the worst drivers ever. Who hits their own apartment?
The weekend did start to pick up later. We watched the Hawks defeat Portland from great seats, had dinner with Alvin where dad & he tried Bison and we did get to hang out/visit a lot. Now they are onto Destin to spend the rest of mom's Spring Break week.

Awww Emily! Sorry your weekend didn't go according to plan. As they say, when it rains, it pours. Glad to hear things picked up towards the end though!

Oh, Em! If it makes you feel any better, yesterday I almost got in a wreck in the parking garage, spilled an ENTIRE cup of coffee on my lap at work, & broke my purse! Haha!
