The week of frustration!

Friday, June 07, 2013


Yes, that seems to be what my car is MISSING now, as I went to head to the Y to get my workout done. What is going on this week? LOL

So, found hubby's plug-in charger in the basement, and hopefully have things hooked up right - just shot him an email (at work) and hope he tells me I did well! But, I'm guessing before I can hit the Y (assuming I'm able to get it started), I'll be heading to Advance Auto for a new battery!

Ooh, maybe this means another shot at using MY car for the drive in theater next time! Last time we tried mine, had the battery die on us, but learned how to get my daytime running lights (completely automatic) to shut off ;)

    Whew! Well... out $125ish for a new battery but car is running still... hoping the 3rd in this trilogy of terror was the disappointment as I left Advance Auto and headed toward the car wash... only to find the auto bays closed for maintenance, and me with only 2 quarters (min $1 to use the manual? sheesh - just wanted to rinse of a nasty bird gift - white on a black car kinda stands out LOL)

So, upon being unable to remove said poops... I headed to the Y. Go me! Now, by this time, I am starving to the point of nausea again, so stopped after about 22mins... and well, back home and gonna try to find something tiny to tide me over... dinner not for at LEAST another hour. Maybe just chug a bit, and rest my weary head ;)

I'm just so proud that I didn't let it derail me, and that I fought a spider web to get to that battery charger of hubby's! That, itself was more impressive than a 7 day streak of cardio! (anyone that knows me, understands that one LOL - think I blogged back in 2011 about the drive in and unwanted guests...)

    I hate car trouble. Quite the pain. I hope this works for you.
