Three Things Thursday



1.  First and most importantly of course I am going to race with Jameson this weekend!  I can't wait on so many levels except for the cold temps are predicted for Sunday. Those I am NOT looking forward to.

2. Going to the gym is NOT HEALTHY for ................ your car!  Two weeks ago I came out of the gym an saw something on my windshield. Even though I was parked legally my mind instantly went to a ticket. Nope.  Someone had backed up and hit my car.  No damage was done that I could see so I thought no more about it.  Unfortunately.  This week I came out of the gym and saw something on my windshield.  My mind instantly went to a ticket.  (I am a slow learner.) Well, nope!  Again, someone had backed up and hit my car. Did I mention that I was parked in almost the same place?  Did I mention that the road isn't as wide due to the snow?  Well, like I said I am a slow learner so I didn't change my parking spot.  This time there was damage.  The good news is the person (a different one) was honest and left all the necessary info.  But now I am playing phone tag with her insurance agent and will have to go through all the inconvenience of getting it fixed.  But may I say................. my learning curve has increased and I am now parking in a different place! (This was written on Wednesday.)

3.  It is now Thursday.  I went to the gym again today and had a fairly decent workout.  I came out, got in my car and drove off when I noticed..............yes...........another note on my windshield. I immediately pulled over, hopped out and went around my car to get it!  I couldn't believe it! Did someone bump their door into mine? There was no way someone backed into it!  So I start reading the note which is addressed to me.  Huh?  Did the person who hit me find out who I was and come back to write a personal note?  I keep reading only to discover one of my friends had been parked next to me. When she noticed my car she couldn't resist leaving me a note since she had read about my previous episodes on FB!  Well, it is funny now but man it so wasn't funny for a short time there!  I am all done with anything on my windshield.

LOL, I'm sorry your car got damaged, but I was sure you were going to say you got a ticket! The next time I find a piece of paper on my windshield (usually a flyer of some sort) I'm sure I'll think of you. I hope it doesn't cost too much or take much time to get it fixed.

Anne said...

That's actually a funny story...not the damage and the trouble (that's not funny)...but, a good story. Good job changing parking space ;)

MCM Mama said...

That sucks that you got hit, but I'm totally LOL that your friend left you a note.

That's a funny story. I'm glad that the people were honest and left you notes on your car! My car was involved in a hit and run (sort of - the guy left his car and fled the scene but the cops caught up with him an hour later) and luckily the guy had insurance and it was covered. It just took a while for the insurance company to process everything since they couldn't get ahold of the insured (no surprise there since he fled the scene). Hope everything goes smoothly for you!

Jill said...

Hahaha. Yeah, I'd be one to leave a note on your car, too, after I read your FB comment!

Nice job getting in all that training though, girl!!!

Christina said...

What your friend did was funny. Sorry about the damage though, that was not funny at all.

Tortuga_Runner said...

Great friend, I love that she left you a note. Bummer about the damage.

Char said...

You're going to have a 'thing' about windshield notes after all of this. Is there a name for a phobia to notes on your windshield?

Amy said...

Who needs email and FB when you can just leave notes on each other's windshields? Too bad about your car, hope it gets sorted out soon.

Johann said...

I couldn't help smiling all the time while reading this. At least you've been going to gym, well done! Have a good weekend!

Ewa said...

Bummer about the car but the story is very funny.
Have a great time at the race this weekend.

HappyTrails said...

Sorry about the car - but it was a good smile reading about your windshield note parade. Hope you enjoy your time with Jameson this weekend (and the race, too!!!)

Suzy said...

Have a great time this weekend! I don't think I'm going to be at the race because I have a fever...and I am not running in these temps when I don't feel well. If I am better, I may stop by and meet you before the race. Is there a way to contact you when you are here? If you want, e-mail your info to runningonmytimemail at gmail dot com. Stay warm!

Fran said...

Have fun this weekend!

I think you have to go to a new gym and before you become a member ask about the driving skills of the members :)

Heather said...

Sorry about your car getting hit, hopefully it won't happen again. That's pretty funny that your friend left a note! have fun at the race!

Teamarcia said...

At least they left notes right? Now I know why I haven't been to the gym yet this year!

Heidi said...

HAHAHA Your friend is funny!

Gotta say though, I'm pretty impressed that both times you were backed into the people left you a note. That's pretty good.

FruitFly said...

What a sense of humor your friend has. I confess I giggled, and thought it was actually pretty creative!

Sucks to be hit twice in a row. Not your lucky week, poor thing!

racing dawn said...

Hahaha! Those darn friends... :) Sorry you got hit the one time though...dangit.

Glad you're going to race this weekend - I'm sure it'll be great!

Chris K said...

Great story. Have a great race and weekend!

Meg said...

OMG, that story about the little boy in the theatre and the dancers cracked me up!! Talk about getting your messages crossed and just what was he thinking the whole time he was watching the show? Kids are TOO cute. Thanks for sharing your tidbits from school. It keeps me going to look at the hilarious!
Have a fun weekend, I'm sure you're happy to be back!

Richelle said...

The first time I ever got anything on my windshield was a parking ticket from the city of St. Paul. $25 down the drain.

I hope that you can get everything smoothed out with your car and the insurance stuff soon.

What a wonderful person to leave her info! Hopefully it gets worked out soon!
