The horrible, very bad day

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

So this morning I woke up to my husband talking on the phone. It was 7 am. He's supposed to be working at that time, so I wondered why he was still home. Come to find out he couldn't get into the car because someone tried to jimmy the lock and our keys wouldn't work.

Our taxes came back this week, so we were due for something stupid and expensive to happen. So far we've had to pay a locksmith to open the car and now my husband is missing work and waiting for the car to be fixed. It's tough to be a one car family. Who knows how much this will cost? It's already over $100 just to open the car, there are other things that need to be fixed and an oil change while we're at it, so I feel that it will be around $1,000 by the time we're done... Hopefully I'm just really overestimating it.

So now I'm still going to go up to the school and volunteer, it is Wednesday. I'm hoping that I can convince the husband to at least come up to the school and have lunch with the kids.

It could have been worse, no windows were bashed in, they didn't get into the car, nothing was stolen. It's just tough being next to a popular park and railway. I will be having a nap sometime this week, but today won't be that day...
