As you guys know, Liliana started running a fever yesterday. I hate seeing her sick and I hate not knowing what's wrong with her.
My day home with her started off fine: some grocery shopping, some meal planning, and during her nap I made these ...
The pictures don't do these justice.
They're the Martha Stewart Strawberry cupcakes.
They took two hours. They were worth it. So very worth it.
After she woke up though, things started turning sour. She was still burning hot. I held her, fed her, and tried my best to console her. Seeing her in pain broke my heart. She started crying and the phone rang. It was the title company in Little Rock.
Apparently I had been misinformed about the entire closing process and somehow WHILE at work, I am supposed to go to a bank, get a cashier's check, and go to my neighborhood notary to have the paper work signed.
She called me at 3:49. The bank closes at 4. I decided I would try to make it. I quickly put Liliana in the car and pull in the parking lot at 3:59. I had made it!
I got out of the car, was getting this gorgeous little lady out of the car, and look at the front door of the bank.
The manager sees us and CLOSES the door. While I have a sick, feverish baby in my hands and while I am trying to take advantage of having a "day off" (aka my baby was sick, I don't get days off).
I immediately put Liliana in the car and go through the drive thru. I ask if I can get my cashier's check there and they of course say no.
I tell her someone just shut the door in my face, at exactly 4, while I had an 11 month old baby in my hands.
The manager gets on the microphone and dares to tell me he hadn't seen my car (I was parked RIGHT in front of the door). I quickly tell him we might be taking our business elsewhere and that I'd let others know about their amazing (sarcastic obviously) customer service.
Yep, I snapped at the drive thru lady and manager.
Later I realized I probably over reacted. But seriously, DO NOT close the door on a lady with a baby when they are RIGHT there. I was less than 15 steps from being inside and it was EXACTLY 4 o'clock.
I went and had a great workout. This took out some of my anger. But what ultimately saved my afternoon?
All I have to say it Thank God for Cupcakes.
Part II? Things turn sour for Liliana...stay tuned.
