Risking it

I am one big ball of ADHD. Chris thinks it makes me funny except when things like this happen…

If anyone follows my twitter, you may have noticed this morning I tweeted

“I love taking risks”

86148699

I love my car. It’s perfect for me, it tells me how many miles I have until I am on E. But I have come to find out, I can procrastinate and stay on ‘0 miles’ for at least 2 trips to work & home.

Well……. this morning I remembered I am on my 5th trip and well, I just didn’t feel like stopping. I was over tired, craving an ambien and my bed and just wanted to get home. Plus no gas station was on the right hand side of the road, so I took a risk. Good reasons, right?

I made it home, slipped into a coma and forgot about it all.

Until, Chris and I hopped in my car to go run some errands later this afternoon. I was once again off in my own little world on my iphone while he was driving, not paying attention to him or him driving.

1 mile into our drive, our conversation went something like this:

Chris: (he was talking and I have no clue what he was saying- off in my own world) …… WTF?

Me: (looking down at my phone) Huh?

Chris: ASHLEY ANNE!

Me: What now?

Chris: You KILL me!

Me: (me not realizing the car is slowing down) Huh, why?

Chris: YOU DIDN”T FILL YOUR GAS UP?! Holy Hell you KILL me!

Me: Uh ooooooh, (starting to laugh uncontrollably) I toooooooooootally forgot that I was risking it this morning!

Chris: I swear, when you done popping out kids, you HAVE to go back on your Adderall!

Sphoto77o yes, we were pulled over on the side of the highway, no gas station near. But a phone call to Dad, we were saved. So we sat outside a Walgreens like bums as Chris is sitting there making fun of me. I just couldn’t stop laughing.

The Pringles, Rockstar and mini doughnuts held us over while my poor Dad had to truck 15 miles to come to our rescue!

Thanks DAD! You always come to the rescue in times like these!

The part that made this the best, I tweeted about it this morning.

As Chris said, life is never dull when your married to me! I guess I make life a little more interesting with my ADD!

Maggie said...

LOL! This made me laugh! I am SO paranoid when it comes to my gas in my car. My husband can drive around on E for days and not be bothered by it. I freak out when it gets to less then 1/4 of a tank. I've never run out, but some days I do feel like taking that risk...but then I get scared! :)

Jill said...

Youre story made me laugh! You are too cute Ashley. I love the pictures, sounds like something I would have done too! Or forgot to do! =)

I love your layout by the way, and the song. I always liked that song, would sing it in the pool when I was younger, little did I know, it has meaning to me now.

Oh no! I left my car on empty for like 2 trips, but thankfully it's never stalled on me while driving. It waits until the next morning when I'm in a rush to not start on me :)
