Ok fast forward to Friday 2:00 PM, I get another call from my husband. "Honey, the car is dying on me. I am in D.C. I don't know if I will make it." I tell him to take it straight over to the place we bought it (b/c we get a free rental, the only time we don't take our cars to them is when we are home b/c this place is a hike from our home). Luckily the car made it there, he got his rental, said his good-byes and talk with you soon about our POS car that is 3 years young and shouldn't be having these types of problems with it.
Saturday morning the mechanic gives us a call. Head gasket blown, antifreeze leaking everywhere, they have to tear the car apart, we are looking at $1,100 just to start. Imagine this - I loose it. Yep full fledged meltdown, hysterical. My daughters birthday is in two weeks, and this very same week last year my husbands old expedition broke down on us and cost us $2,000 (we [the expedition and us] finally parted ways that June...) and we had to cancel celebrations b/c we couldn't afford it! Needless to say I am extremely upset. We still haven't got the car back.
If that wasn't enough to deal with that same afternoon, our big screen TV blew. Yup, that's right a day before the Superbowl and a tech couldn't get out here until today! I had planned on providing you with my Superbowl blog post about what we did, who we rooted for, what I made for apps, but I have been depressed all weekend long with the past 72 hours of events I couldn't bring myself to do it.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE! Yep, there's more. The icing on the cake is that we found that there is a mouse running around in our house somewhere. I have been told that this is normal b/c it is cold out. I am a clean freak and I just don't understand how it is possible!
So anyway after this weekends whole ordeal I really am feeling unmotivated. Luckily, I have this post to re-motivate me to carry on and be strong. So this weeks motivational quote is:
"Good things come to those who wait"
So, I am waiting as patiently as possible waiting for the good things to happen. It can't get any worse right?!
