I have a sweet and sour story to share. I will keep it as brief as I can because rule #1 in blogging is no long stories & more photos I'm told.
Or??? Perhaps, she knew that when I got back in my car to leave that my car wouldn't start. Crap! I feel so helpless as a woman when my car has "issues". Ugh! I got out and checked the oil like that's going to make a difference...yep... got oil. The check engine and the oil lamp came on when I was trying to get it to turnover. My next thought was "I don't need this!" but then I remembered the wonderful package that I had just received and then I remembered the reason that I had stopped at the PO Office in the first place. That is what I kept telling myself to be grateful for.
To shorten the whole evening ordeal let me just share with you what else I am grateful for....
1) Having a AAA membership to tow my car
b) only being 6 miles from the mechanic instead of 18 miles away because it's $5 for every mile over 5 miles of towing.
2) Wonderful neighbors who will come out at night to pick me up after the tow truck dropped me off at the closed garage.
3) the same wonderful neighbors who will loan me their car so I can go back to the mechanic Sat. morning to find out that I needed a new fuel pump & filter to the tune of $553 (not so happy for that) but grateful that I have a car.
4) blogging friends who will let me share the bad news with the great news.
Mucho Thank You's to Wendy for such a wonderful and thoughtful gesture and gift with perfect timing.
