This morning I got to work and promptly realized that I'd forgotten my badge at home. So I called C to make sure it was there, then I called in late, got back in my car and headed home. Once I got there, I realized that I would be able to take the kids to school, sparing C from having to get up, get the baby dressed, and head out in the rain. Yay! Win win win!
But. Once I dropped the kids off I noticed that my defroster wasn't working. And oh hey? Is that fog or steam coming from the hood. Oh. Definitely smoke. Yep. Definitely smoke. I weighed the options of limping the car home or walking a mile, in the rain, in my heels and decided to risk it. Luckily I made it!
Rather than do the one car shuffle (C drops me off, I work for all of three hours, then he picks up the kids, then picks me up) I decided to work from home. As you can imagine, there aren't a lot of "work from home" options in the prison system. But I have been SO PRODUCTIVE. I've literally done about two days worth of work before lunch time. And I'm wearing JEANS. And Avery's watching Team Umizoomi on the couch next to me.
So my car was smoking and it's been the best day of the week :)
