Car Trauma

I went in for an oil change and 3 hours later left with 2 tired boys and a rental car!! 

The brake light won’t turn off when you release the emergency brake so they were tinkering and thought it would be a quick fix.  All I can say is thank goodness we ate right before we went in, I’m getting smarter at keeping diapers and wipes in my purse, and the stroller has a permanent home in the trunk of the car.  We wouldn’t have survived without all of those today.

We did have some fun lessons about car dealerships and compared/ contrasted everything we saw in the Toyota service station to the movie CARS.  No white wheels at Luigi’s or Lamborghini cars though =o)

Oh Happy Days

Can I just tell you that I have had a wonderful day today?  Lately I feel like I have been a bit frazzled and on the pessimistic side with a lot of sarcasm and fake happy emotions going on, but I am loved!!  Someone brought me flowers today and a box of goodies, but it wasn’t my husband.  Don’t worry, it wasn’t from another guy!  And then I had an awesome talk with a friend.  And then came the call from another person in the ward who was thinking of me and has some more goodies for me to go pick up for my kiddo.  And I found someone to watch my kiddos during a double meeting night.  And then I scored 2 Thomas train DVDs at the library when usually there are zero!  And then I scored free 8 foot shelves on Freecycle to hang in the garage.  And even though I’ve only seen my hubby for 45 minutes which was for dinner, car ride to library, and then HOA mtg, I’m not feeling bitter and upet.  He left for work today before I was even up and took off for another job after the HOA mtg.  So thank you people for making my day really pleasant.  I’ll have to pay it forward, that’s for sure!
