This is an excerpt of what happened. Stay calm and roll your eyes.
Whenever Anna comes home, Den goes over her car. He is great about it. He really is. He gets up early before she leaves and always makes sure that it is running perfect even if he already went over it when she first got home. Mind you, this last time she came home, it started making this terrible squealing noise the night before she left. He used some sort of belt dressing. Sounds yummy but is actually belt grease. That seems to have helped. Bless him.
Before Anna left, I made her put gas in her car. She likes to get it when she is close to empty. Even if it means stopping somewhere in Chicago. Ummmm no, get the damned gas so I don't have to worry. She has run out of gas before so I do have cause for alarm. Another Anna story for another day!
I went with her to get gas so we could spend as much time together as possible. Awwwww, I know. Den goes over the outside of the car, I always check the inside. She is pretty good about picking up wrappers and such but I still inspect. It's what Moms do, we
As I'm looking around I notice there are dried water marks, drips, all around the moon roof.
And this is the conversation we had................................
Me-"Anna, did it rain in your car?'
Anna-"Oh my God, it rains terrible in here."
Me-"It rains in your car."
Anna-"I have to drive around with the blanket(we have supplies in case of an emergency in the trunk) over my head. One of my friend's had to hold it over us while we were driving down the road."
Me-"Did you think to pull over and look for the leak?"
Me-"Did you clean all of the water up?"
Anna-"Ummmmm, yeah." Which we all know means no. "It rained so bad that everthing was soaked even the material on ceiling."
Me-"Did you think to tell us about it?"
Mind you, she had just purchased a car wash and we had to run the car through.
Me-"Anna, did you think to close the moon roof?"
I reach up and push the button to close it. It was open at least a quarter of an inch.
Surprise, surprise, surprise, it didn't leak at all when we went through the car wash.
In her defense, the moon roof has a sliding door thingy so she couldn't see that it was open. But why she didn't look is beyond me.
Because I just couldn't let it go I said, "The way that you do things is so upsetting to me. The chaos of it all."
Anna-"You get used to it."
Off to pray,
