What a night...

Yesterday turned out to be quite interesting for me. I had school until 5 and had to hurry home to get ready to head to Chance's company Christmas party at 7:30. Now, keep in mind that with no traffic (luckily it was Saturday, so there wasn't any) my drive home from school takes about 50 minutes and then the drive from our house to the restaurant where the party was is about 25 minutes, so that gave me just enough time to come home and get ready. HA! That's in a perfect world!!! I wasn't able to leave school until about 5:15 and as we (I carpool with a girl from school that only lives about 5 miles from me) were driving on the freeway we heard this strange noise, I knew it wasn't right and I had a feeling it was my tire. We pulled off an exit in the shoulder to check it out, low and behold my front right tire wasn't just flat it was coming apart at the seams! Great! I drove slowly to a gas station and called Chance for instructions on how exactly to change my tire. That took about twenty minutes and let me tell I don't think I did too bad for my first time changing a tire! Well we got back on the freeway and of course with my spare on I didn't want to go over 60 MPH. It was a long drive home! Once I got home, I only had a few minutes to throw myself together, and luckily Chance had gotten all of Quentin's stuff ready (or so I thought). Phew, we made it to the restaurant only a few minutes late and were finally seated. I was holding Quentin and I handed him to Chance when I noticed I had two huge wet spots on my lap. Crap! Quentin leaked through his diaper, luckily it was only pee! I took him to the bathroom to change him with all the stuff Chance had gotten ready... yep, no extra clothes! I went out and asked Chance to check in the car to see if we were lucky enough that we had an extra onsie in there, we did! Aaah, now it's time to relax and enjoy ourselves! Right, it wasn't 30 minutes later and Chances boss was playing with Quentin and said something about leaking and we both figured he was just talking about earlier. Nope, Quentin leaked again! Only this time, not pee! We had to make do with what we had and use his other clothes that he had on before that had dried for him to wear! We ended up having a great time at dinner after that and no other crazy things happened to us.
