It’s been raining a lot here. Thankfully, the only flooding we are experiencing is in our car. Every time we get into it after a heavy rain, the roof has leaked and there is a huge puddle of water on the passenger side foot area. The other day it started happening on the driver’s side too and there was water leaking from the light on the roof.
We know we have to do something about it, but we are so broke that we keep trying to figure out how to fix it ourselves. When I saw that the light was leaking, I told my husband we couldn’t wait anymore and would have to take it in somewhere to get looked at because the car is going to get moldy and I don’t want anything electrical to have problems.
My husband took it to Don’s Autobody to get it looked at and they spent a good chunk of time cleaning out the sunroof gutters, which appeared to be clogged and perhaps causing the leaks. According to my husband they were super cool. When they were done he was worried about how much they would charge and thought we would have to put it on our credit card.
Guess how much they charged him? Nothing!!! …$0.00… Can you believe that? We’re not sure that the problem has been solved because we’re waiting for another big downpour before we can test it out, but still I am so grateful for their kindness. Seriously, I always dread taking my car in for any service because sometimes you feel like such a sucker, but every interaction I’ve had with this place (they fixed my bumper and muffler before) has been great. They are helpful and I never feel like they are just trying to make money off of me.
Anyway, I thought the least I could do was give them a shout out. Thank you, Don’s Autobody on Bush Street! You made our day.
I am roughly 31 weeks pregnant. For Christmas this pregnancy decided to give me hemorrhoids. They came without a gift receipt, so it seems I can’t return them or exchange them for something else.
I’m hormonal and at times I find myself crying over petty things. This week I was crying because I felt so misunderstood by my mother. I took a tiny little thing and blew it up to mean that she never listens and she has no idea who I am and …blah, blah, blah. I can’t even admit the circumstances to you because they are embarrassing and I was obviously over-reacting.
Fortunately, I had a good cry and kept my mouth shut. The next morning I called her and she was at the post office mailing me a care package. When I got off the phone, I admitted to my husband and myself that sometimes I can be a real self-involoved jerk-face! My mother loves me in her own way and one of these days I’m just going to have to accept her as she is instead of trying to mold her into what I think she should be.
I am happy for the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell”. It’s about time. Instead of pontificating, I will just say that I love and support my gay brothers and sisters in and out of the military.
I am so excited about spending Noche Buena (Christmas Eve) at home with loved ones. I feel all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it.
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie (don’t forget to add “in bed” at the end, if you are so inclined):
