So, this is going to be one of those boring type of posts that should really be reserved for my personal blog (which has been sorely neglected) but what the heck. Someone here may want to hear the grueling details of my regular, un-creative life. And if you don’t, can you humor me?
The weekend was insane. I had a haircut appointment with favorite hair dresser (who is back from hiatus………..THANK GOD!) which almost didn’t happen. While Mr. GC was demo-ing our backyard, he sends me on an errand to pick up an outdoor 3 prong outlet. Note to self…………none of the outlets say “outdoor” on them. Don’t ask me how I know. On my way back from Lowes, my car just decides to shut off. On a hill. And the husband doesn’t pick up the phone. It starts back up, gets me up the hill, then shuts off. Again. I made it home thankfully with enough time for Mr. GC to bring it to Nissan (i put my foot down about bringing it myself – totally not in the mood for getting stuck again), go rent us a car so we can go visit family on LI (we only have one personal car – the hubs has a work car), come back home and have a friend bring me to get my hair done. Brownie points for the husband and his friend who drove me.
$250 later (just for the rental), and the car is not fixed. It’s now Monday. We bring the rental car back, and then head onto another rent-a-car place (which Nissan is paying for by the way – brownie points for Nissan) to pick up our second rental in 3 days. I have to interject here and say that we rented a Chevy Traverse and I’M.IN.LOVE! Lord, help me. lol
Anyhow, I finally got my car back today which makes me happy and I guess makes Gracie happy too (she kissed the back door lol). I’m happy to know that I won’t be breaking down (at least I better not after spending an obscene amount of money) anytime soon. We needed to get our car worked over anyhow for our upcoming trip to Disney. Yes. we are driving from NY to Disney with 2 crazy girls. And Yes. We must be insane.
Since I’m running out of time and have to wrap this post up I will leave out the details of my fresh 3 year old who seems to be RUNNING. ME. RAGGED. this week and has decided that her goal in life is to drive me crazy. Pray for me! LOL
