From bad to good

Thats how my day went. See this morning started out with some sad tears as little car was in need of some repairs that were well....quite pricey. So I basically spent the entire day crunching numbers, panicking, trying not to cry at work and figuring out every single worst case scenario I could come up with in my head. Needless to say by this afternoon I was a nervous wreck, sick and frustrated. However as I have done everyday since my 18th birthday and being on my own, I reminded myself that I would get nothing solved if I didn't keep a level head and remain calm. So I weighed my options, made some calls and when I walked out the door at 5 I had everything taken care of and my car will be all fixed tomorrow. No thanks to my mom. But that's a story for another day. Or week....maybe month.

Anyways, so as I'm on cloud 9 driving home thinking that this day couldn't possibly get any better I get home and grab the mail and what do I see??? A little package for me from Minnesota.

(Larabars and iPod car converter)

Drew sent me some good snacks and the capabilities for good music for my next road trip, since I complained that the only radio options in Minnesota are Jesus or country. After the terrible stressful day that I had then the relief of getting everything figured out, coming home to this was icing on the cake. Lucky for me my day ended with happy tears :)

Whew, that is all I have the energy for today folks. It has been a roller coaster of a day and I am spent. Hope everyone's hump day was far easier!




  1. Cars are such a money sucker, aren't they? I'm continually stroking my car, whispering sweet nothings to it, in the hope it won't throw a tantrum that costs thousands. I'm pleased you came out a winner!

    And country or Jesus music? Good Lawd. Praise baby cheeses for iPod converters (and good friends)!

  2. P.S. I just saw that you've named your archives Tardis! I'm not a Doctor Who fan but that's gold :)

  3. i hear you. i've been stressed about money lately and the new tires i had to buy for our vacation next week did not help the situation!

  4. So glad it ended on a high note!

  5. Hmmmm, I think I'm going to have to look into buying one of those converters!

  6. Car expenses are insane. You get a little ding on one of your doors and suddenly you're shelling out like $800....

    I think I may hate it worse than the dentist.

  7. the only radio options in Minnesota are Jesus or country?~!?~? THE HORROR! i would just die!

    AND glad your car is okay! whew!

  8. I'm glad your day turned out to be a good one after all! xo, Elien

  9. Jesus or country! Hahaha...that sounds like soth Georgia to me!
    It will all work always does.

  10. oh lady i know the feeling. i've been there and dontcha worry. it'll get figured out.

    btw i've never had those larabars...must try.

  11. Sorry to hear of your poor car ;( but yea for fun gifts ... glad your spirits were lifted!
