Just when you think you have a good one ...something gos wrong....AND.....it is usually at a really highly inconvenient time.....like in the middle of a move.....FUN. (NOT!)
SO........Yesterday we were already having a rough day...and several other things had already happened...but we are ready to go home from church and Kendal is done work, so we stop at COSTCO to grab some lettuce. Bree and I stayed in the car while Kendal ran in, and while we are sitting there, I start to smell something kind of off and burny...I asked Bree if she smelled anything...but she didn't , so I assumed it was just me, or something off of another car passing me. THEN...Kendal comes out of the store...and stares at something on the road....I was like...."Oh Great...I ran something over....Then he asks me to back up...and I am wondering why he wants to stare at it......as it turns out, I wish that I had run something over....because there was light pink fluid all over the road....NICE. (AGAIN....NOT...) I drove the car across the parking lot, and parked it and turned it off...no way I was driving it anywhere else...So now we are left with several other problems....namely...it is Sunday, so there is no way we are going to be able to fix the car today...The second problem is Breanne has a volleyball game and she needs to get there. Jeremy is screaming by now, I have a migraine, Kendal is frustrated, and none of us have had lunch...Add to that the fact that we are in the middle of a move and can't really afford car repairs at the moment...and we had a very frustrating situation...We called first to find out if we still had free towing - which we did, and then we called Kendal's parents to get a lift...but they weren't home....Bree phoned her friend and got a ride to her game, and Kendal called our friend Paul, and he came and picked us up. Thank God for Paul....This is like-the second time now he has come and rescued us from our car...( The first time I ran out of gas-because I forgot to fill up..smart I know....) The rest of the day went ok...we went to Pauls house and Tammy fed the refugees lunch, and then we watched the football game (we lost this time...) and then we went to evening service...Paul drove us home later....(Actually he drove Kendal home twice...because we got all the way home before we realized that Kendal forgot his keys at the church and had to go back and get them.....)
So this morning, Kendal's parents picked us up at 7, and we drove Kendal to work, and I went to GM and set up an appointment to find out what is wrong with my car...and so now we wait....
