Didn't I say best laid plans?

Well I just came home.
Never made it to Lehigh Valley Mall. Our car died while we were on the turnpike and we were blessed that we were able to pull over to the shoulder (thanks to my quick thinking) AAA does not service on the Turnpike- they sent someone local.
Steve was awesome and towed us back to Philly.
I have to tell you that I was scared because the area is desolate. My phone crashed ( I have to assume from my energy) and I couldn't take a pic of the area. Sis and I also were in a quandary because we had to pee... em sis is a bigger risk taker - she jumped over the guard rail LOL I did it between the doors :P I am more shy. Because of that we didn't drink any or our juices until we got home.
Car being towed - got to be on the big truck
Jumping the car to close a window. They think its the alternator :(
*sigh* I am tired because it was a long day, and I was scared a big mac truck would hit us. Pushing liquids and relaxing.
While we were waiting to be towed the people from Macy's called us to see if we were ok. The person who coordinated the event gave everyone different hours. They were expecting us an hour earlier and were concerned for us because we were so prompt last time around. They are hoping we can reschedule the day, but we are on for next Sat. Hopefully the car will be ready.
Now for the importance of being prepared - if we had to stay somewhere overnight I had enough juice and water to hold both of us till tomorrow midday! Thankful that we didn't have to but good to know that if needed I would still be on plan :D
Going to chill and watch some tv.
