A Beautiful Sunday Morning(Continued from previous post)
Sunday, May 04, 2008
So here I am, waiting for my laundry to finish drying, listening to the birds singing outside my window. *smiles* The soft whirring of my fan sounds in the background as I contemplate what has occurred since the end of the previous post.
On April 14, about 10:00 am, I get this call from my apt. manager asking me if I have a white Toyota Camry with a club on the steering wheel. I said yes and she said someone tried to break into it. She gave the police my number, Officer Jones called me and told me the story and said that if I could not come home so they could sign it over to me, they would have to tow it! It was friggin 4 feet out of the parking stall!
Anyway...apparently this brilliant guy decided to try and drive it with the club like device I had attached, the car stalled, maintenance noticed and knowing it was not his car, came up to the guy who is in my car and asks him if he was going to take off the club...
Now get this: The dude said he thought when he turned the car on, the club would disengage!
Maintenance told him that before they could push the car back into the parking space, they would have to call Metro...he got all nervous and eventually up and left....quickly.
Metro came, they caught another guy whom they think had nothing to do with the physical attempt on the car, but was prolly in cahoots with the guy in my car.
Now, I was tied to my desk as my boss is out of town...but when they said they were going to tow it...I made sure that I got there in five minutes. I filled out what seems like reams of paper work, checked the car out and aside from damaging the alarm, he screwed up my steering wheel by trying to drive the car with the club on it. *Shakes head at the sheer stupidity*
The maintenance guys got a good look at the dude and were able to give descriptions. They were so cool....They helped me start the car and pull it back into the stall. I need to make them some goodies as a thank you!
So, last week I received a subpoena to go to court as a witness against one of the men who tried to steal my car. When I called the night before, to make sure the case was on the docket, of course it was not. So I have to wait for information and possibly another subpoena. Which is to say, I will not have any satisfaction regarding this ordeal, any more than I had the last time my car was actually stolen. It is quite frustrating.
As of now, I will be spending Christmas in Hawaii! One of my dearest, bestest friends is stationed there and he is flying me out for the holiday. *GRINS* I have not been there since my 21st birthday. *GULP* wow...28 years ago! Holy mackerel! I am so excited! Ohhhhhhh...I will HAVE to have a new swimsuit...
I have started an aqua aerobics class twice a week and I absolutely love it. However...*POUTS* They over chlorinate their pool and I believe I am extremely allergic to the chlorine. I am going to try benedryl after my sessions. This HAS to work out...this class is the best thing I could have found and I look forward to it so much.
I had a moment of insanity last Wednesday and cut all my hair off and lightened it. I am finally get ting used to it and the general consensus amongst all my friends and loved ones is it is the best thing I have done in a very long time! When I told Bryan, my friend in Hawaii, the first thing out of his mouth was, "Define ALL!" I had to laugh...he loved my hair long.
Okay, laundry is done and now it is time for a shower, followed by a short visit to the Library and then I am off to see Iron Man! I am really looking forward to the movie!
And that pretty much catches us up on my little life! *giggles*
Here is to a fabulous day. Be sure to do at least one nice thing for yourself today. Relax...have fun....do something that makes you happy!
