    Well, not really I guess. But pretty bad.

    So this morning I drop my kiddo off at her dad's and there was drama (long story). And his wife was a condescending bitch to me.

    Then on my way to work, as I'm stewing over this cunt, something suddenly broke on my car. Seems like an exhaust issue. It sounds loud and broke as fuck. I pulled over to investigate (making me late) and when I was satisfied that something had just broken or come loose in the exhaust (as opposed to anything engine-related) I continued on.

    When I get to work, I get a text from my ex's wife... my daughter has lice. She said she'd seen one last weekend but didn't think much of it so she didn't tell me. I immediately text my roommate and tell her. She checks her kids... two of the three had it. She said she'd go get the special shampoo and start washing all the bedding with hot water.

    More to come...

    SO I start my workday, freaking the fuck out about the wife, the car, the lice, etc. Then my one client was a douchey asshole. I hated him. It was a rework piece. He was complaining that his previous artist didn't do a good job because he "rushed it" and didn't want to give him time or quality... then proceeded to bitch about the price I quoted him. Fuck YOU! You want good work, or do you want more of the same amateurish shit you've got??!

    Nearing the end of my day... My daughter had a dentist appointment tomorrow morning that I was going to take her to before work. But with my car being fucked up I didn't want to drive a half hour South to Pottstown and back, then 40 minutes North to Allentown (and back) so I texted the wife and told her I'd reschedule; they'd be able to get her in again fast.
    Then my ex called me and said he'd just have the wife take her; that it shouldn't be put off, and he was a total dick about it. (It's just a checkup, there's no issue... another week or two would not matter. BUT he had to make me feel like an asshole).

    Theeen I get a call from my roomie. She said the washer had broken. There was a broken hose in the back, so not only can we NOT wash all our bedding, but water had been spewing out and it soaked everything and flooded the basement. It's a fucking mess.

    TBC...

    ...So I got home, put the lice shampoo on my head and combed through with the special comb. No lice. But I followed through with the treatment anyway as a precaution. (My roommate is also louse-free. It's only affected a couple of the kids.) I put a slightly premature dose of Frontline on Steve (Frontline kills lice).
    I put my bedspread and pillows in the dryer on high for 20 minutes, which is supposed to kill lice and eggs if present. I quarantined all the bedding, pillows and clothes my daughter was using/wearing in the corner until the washer is fixed. I guess I could dry them awhile though.
    While in the basement I checked the oil tank and noticed we're almost empty. So THAT'S awesome.

    I'm going to check out my car tomorrow at my friend's house. And this whole lice shampoo and bedding-washing has to be repeated in 10 days to ensure that all the lice and eggs are killed.

    Also I kind of got blown off by a guy tonight. And my roommate has been fighting with her boyfriend all day.

    I blame my roommate's son! He had it bad. My daughter was moderate, and my roommate's one daughter had only eggs while her other daughter didn't have any. And neither she nor I have any. I think the boy was the carrier. Little prick.

    AND I blame my ex's wife for not telling me the first time she saw one a week ago! I mean wtf??! :pissed:
