90 degrees outside. 2 kids. No stroller. Lunchtime. 1 bottle. 2 diapers. 40 minutes from home. UGH!
I'm not going to have a pity party here. Did it royally suck to have to unexpectedly pay $447 out of my pocket? You bet. But, I found a few things to be thankful for out of it all:
- My friend Carrie and her husband Chris let us hang out at their condo for the afternoon so we could eat and swim.
- The manager of the car shop felt so bad about everything that he actually DROVE us to Carrie's.
- I didn't have to put the fix on a credit card.
- My car is repaired and will be super safe to drive up to the mountains in and across the country in a week.
