What I Did On My Summer Vacation (At Least Yesterday Anyway)

  1. Loaded the kids into the car to go visit with Granny M.
  2. Discovered that the car wouldn't start.
  3. Unloaded the kids from the car, and back into the house.
  4. Made of couple of phone calls, trying to not let the aggravation get the best of me.
  5. Got a jump from a lovely family that I haven't kept in contact with since we moved. Shame on me, shame on me, shame on me. Must send them a Thank You gift.
  6. Dropped my car off at the local Toyota dealer, explained what's been going on with the car, and left instructions for them to contact my husband with the diagnoses.
  7. Got a ride back to my mom's from the lovely family, and found out that their youngest son is entering the seminary at USD this fall. Feel like a great big ass for not keeping in touch with this lovely family, not knowing their big news, and offer many congratulations.
  8. Sat around all day waiting to hear about my car.
  9. Come evening, finally got a call from my husband, detailing the work needed on the car and what would be done and what would not.
  10. Then asked the million dollar question . . . how much is this all going to cost?
  11. Still reeling from the news that for around $1,000 I will have my car back in it's usual working order sometime today. Supposedly.
  12. So much for my mulitple trips for sushi while I'm here. Looks like it will be more like tuna sandwiches.
