A month of silence rewarded with laughter

Oh, how silent I’ve been! The last y’all heard, I was whining about our truck. Well, the truck got fixed and worked fine for a while. Got stuck again yesterday, but it didn’t stay stuck this time, so I am not sure what to think. But…I decided to see what’s been going on in Google Continue reading →

What The…

TRUCK!!! Saturday started off semi-normally (except for the fact that I can’t seem to sleep past 5:30 after getting up at 3:00 all week long.) I am overall pretty well exhausted and just trying to let myself relax after a very grueling work-week. I just played around on my laptop for most of the morning Continue reading →

It’s Good to Know When to Fold

It’s time for yet another (and final!) truck update! I was having kind of a long day today. All in all, it wasn’t horrible, but long nonetheless. At about 4:00, my cell phone rang. It was a number that wasn’t in my contact list, but I recognized it all too well. It was the dealership. Continue reading →

Everything is Perfect!

No, not really. I got the phone call yesterday morning from the dealership. Apparently the passenger’s side airbag needed to be replaced for some reason.

In The Rock Chick’s most recent blog post “Listen Up”, Rock Chick talks about the incredible frustrations she Continue reading →

SURPRISE!

NO TRUCK!!! *Sigh* well, I feel like being nice about it because the guy sounded so apologetic when I called for an update, but apparently getting the brakes fixed on our truck was so time consuming that they couldn’t find time to finish the whole airbag light problem. According to the manager, the part for Continue reading →

Row Row Row Your Truck Gently Through the Gulf…

Well, we heard from the dealership what was wrong with our truck. Apparently the brake rotor rusted and locked. Bad mojo. To make matters worse, the front to rotors were rusted as well and were in danger of having the same happen. They needed to be resurfaced. Ok – we agreed to have it done. Continue reading →

Lost

“Lost” is one of my favorite TV shows. Just the word “Lost” however, is NOT one of my favorite words. In case you haven’t already read my post about what happened with our new (used) truck, you might want to read that first. Ok, so to follow up: The tow truck had gotten to our Continue reading →

Some Saturday Morning Thoughts

This has been one heck of a week. Just about every day ended with me in a terrible mood for some reason or another. There were a couple of moments that all seemed ok with the world. Earlier this week I came home from work and sat down in one of my patio chairs to Continue reading →
