My god, what a crazy weekend
Friday afternoon, four other Brother's and I headed up to Syracuse for our Precinct Convention of this year (this is for my fraternity, Kappa Kappa Psi). Stayed at a hotel and went to convention on Saturday, it was awesome and we met a lot of great people which I'm not facebook friends with haha. And then we had to drive home that night, all seven hours and then of course, me being the only commuter of the bunch had to drive home as well on top of it. But all was well.
Sunday morning came and I opted out of church in the favor of recuperating from walking up and down stairs in -1*F weather with a wind chill around -30*F or so. It was freezing! So I slept in around till 10 which was great! Got up, we went out for brunch and I decided to go to my moms house after that. Now...my moms house is on a hill, we live in Hope Valley and yes it is actually a valley. So we live on the side of that hill basically, quarter of the way down-ish. So our driveway is rather steep and annoying. I was driving my dad's diesel pick-up Ford 250 4x4 truck.....I got stuck.....
We have a horseshoe shaped drive and I got stuck on the lower part of it and almost slid down the side hill going to our even lower driveway part that we almost never use but maybe once or twice a year. I tried every tactic I knew, even was able to put it into 4WD but I didn't realize it was 4High. There were four options on the lever (Kronk! Pull the level! Wrong leeeeveeerrr!!! Ugg, why do we even have
that lever!), 2H, 4H, N and 4L. I put it into 4H and was told later that was 4 wheel drive high so it might have done the job but 4 wheel drive Low would have been better since it literally will crawl out of anything.
So dad gets to my mom's house with my "grandfather's" toyota carolla and parks fine in the driveway. First issue is that he didn't realize that the E-brake was on....whoops, I should have told him but I didn't think anything of it until I saw the back tires weren't moving. By then he was already in the lowest part of the driveway having basically driven over the grass to get down there. Then he backed out onto the road which is a privately owned road by us. He got stuck on the other side of the road on a small tree stump.....bent the frame a little....
So we got AAA to come and long story short, we were able to pull the truck out of the stump after cutting it with a chain saw (my idea and dad was like...duhh, why didn't I think of that before??), we almost pulled the AAA truck down with us too since it's a huge truck! Dad backed down to our neighbors since it's a dead end street and we waited for the AAA truck to get out of the way. He was stuck....so we called another AAA truck to come pull him out from the top of the steep little hill we have there.
So two AAA trucks and 4 and a half hours later, we were both out with both the truck and the little car.....I missed my meeting lol that's not a big deal, but both cars are okay with minimum damage and I am almost defrosted from this entire weekend lol.
I was able to at least get the Moscows over to my mom's house though so the two blacks are there now. Both females are happy with each other in one 13 with Selkie who has been behaving herself and the males are happy little buggers with Kit-Kat.
I played the Betta Shuffle and am in the process of taking down Remmy's 3, he was originally split in the 10 with Hawkeye but he bit up his fins so bad that.....I don't even know....he took off almost an entire ventral fin and has done some bad damage to his caudal. He's now in the 5.5 under the 33 and have done a water change on him yesterday. Put Aero and Hawkeye in the 10 and Charlie is in the other 5.5g.
The new Isis black copper CTPK girl will be arriving in a few days! Linda finally got back to me about everything, apparently Sanya from Interbettasfarm has been lax in putting customer information on the bags for Linda >.< but all is well and she should be arriving around Thursday! I'm so excited to finally meet her!
Sorry about the long post, it's been a long weekend and I have a feeling it's going to be a long week as well.....
