Why?

I must confess to being a bit puzzled today. So I have a series of questions to ask of the force of nature or whatever that thought it would be fun to do this to me today.

Question 1 - How is it that a child can wake up perfectly normal, feeling great if a little tired, get to school, and decide to empty the contents of his stomach upon the playground during fire drill, and then play the rest of the day at home as if he had never felt ill at all that day?

Question 2 - Why did the people at the DMV choose to not post all relevant information regarding titling and registering a car on their webpage? At least, not in plain English? Was is so that I would look it up, think I knew what needed brought, and drive all the way downtown (20 minutes) just to find out that the little pink piece of paper that was still in the window of the new car and still in my driveway 20 minutes away was kind of an important part of the registering process and would be the first thing they would ask for? 20 minutes before closing so I couldn't even go home and grab it....

Question 3 - Who was it that decided that for this particular base exercise, no one should be allowed anywhere near the building in which people may obtain a new military id? Why should they rope off that particular building, and put the parking in three different, not clearly marked areas? So that when I needed to go get one today since mine expires tomorrow and they close in 15 minutes, I ended up dragging three children, a stroller, and a husband all the way around some other buildings and coming into a back entrance with only a few minutes to spare?

And Question 4 - Why did Oren have to leave his new stuffed dog from Grandma that came in the mail at the ID office and only discover it back at the car so Mark had to run back and grab it?

I think the answer has to be someone's wierd and twisted sense of humor. But the important thing is that I now have a current military id and I can have Mark drive his car down tomorrow afternoon and take car of it then. And Oren wasn't throwing up all day, just the once and then was home playing, and we were able to get his dog back. So all did or will end well...

Unfortunately, the universe doesn't possess the answers to all of our Why? questions... That sounds like a pull-your-hair-out kind of day, but hopefully tomorrow will be easier!

I wish Zaylee would go back to being a normal child after throwing up. But for now her track record stands at throwing up several times in succession within just a few hours, usually at church, and then being grumpy all day. At least it was outside. Anyway, glad everything seems like it will or did work out.

It's kinda sad that you don't get to keep Chloe, since she seems so attached to you, and you seem attached to her! But hopefully everything will work out and she will be happy and be with a good family.

Wow, what a day! I hate DMVs and their websites...I can never find EVERYTHING either. Bummer about Chloe. She seemed sweet, but I guess whatever's good for her and the family in the long run. Hope your day's better tomorrow!
