Petty Vents
 
I started the Venting thread with the intention that it should be quite lighthearted. It has become a place where bigger things are discussed and I think it ought to remain that way. I do, however, find myself reluctant to post some of my petty crabbiness there in the face of others larger tribulations. So I'm starting this thread in order to vent those petty little irritations that aren't big enough for Venting.

My petty vent for today is quite a litany. I'm going to put it in point form.

- Daughter has volleyball tournament at a little town 40 minutes away. I thought Ken was driving, he thought I was driving...no biggie. I got it, but am not showered or sufficiently caffeinated. And the van only has enough gas to get me there and back.
- Address daughter gives me is NOT the correct school. (She didn't get an address from her coach, but rather Googled and used the WRONG school's name)
- Call to teammate gives us new address, go to program GPS and signal is lost. ARGH!
- Look for paper map in car. It covers to the boundary of this little town. ARGHARGH.
- Call husband and have him Google map and direct us.
- After one missed turn, the directions lead us to a boarded up school. WHAAAT? Daughter says, "Oh yeah we came here yesterday too and had to turn around and find the NEW school". Me, "OK, which way did you go?" Daughter, "I dunno." Me, *facepalm*
- Husband frantically trying to Google new address, daughter calling teammates (who are also lost) and trying to get coaches phone number. I drive into town center (swearing) and find an open store to get directions. Hang up on husband as this is using many cell minutes.
- Get directions. Drive right to new school. Its about 100 meters from where I turned around because of the missed turn. ARGHARGHARGH.
- Dump tearful daughter off with teammates and pray that the gas lasts til I get back home.

Petty vent #1. They have a bus, why aren't they using it?
Petty vent #2. If the parents need to drive, why wouldn't you provide either directions or an address?
Petty vent #3. If you took the bus there on Friday, and realized the address was not correct, why wouldn't you make sure your team had the CORRECT address so they could show up the next day?

*sigh*

Your thread wants me to start venting about school boards and teachers, but I won't, 'cus that usually gets really heavy.

LOL! Take that one over to the Venting thread. ;)

I can't stay awake today. I knew that working one night shift would mess up my sleep schedule.

I hurt my back earlier in the week. It never lasts long, but this time it has me good. Went to see the chiropractor and he said come back Wednesday. He aligned me up good. I can feel the improvement, but my biggest problem is that I am too darned busy to give it time for the damaged or swollen/spasmed to heal. I have two playing engagements this weekend, and sitting at a drum throne for 4 hours a night isn't the greatest thing to be doing. Advil, do your thing....

The big brains in our condo association have had a new down spout added to the building across from me. It's ugly and going to get jammed up with leaves. I see it when I look out my kitchen window.

Rock, hope your back holds out. Puddle o' drummer is not good.

Nap away, PF, sounds like it's not so good outside anyway.

I debated whether this should go in with the major vents or here. I decided it should go here, but I'm still not sure.

There is no chocolate in our house.
