So now that I'm finally finished posting all the events of our life the last month, have you missed just hearing the boring, mundane stuff? Probably not - it's probably been a welcome change from hearing about laundry, spilled milk, poopy pants, tears, spankings, etc!!! Well, just so you don't completely forget about all those JOYS that I get to deal with on any given day, today's extra bonus was that my car battery was dead!! Keep in mind that it was dead on Saturday, and so we bought a new one and David put it in. Car didn't start AGAIN today - fun times - which obviously changed my day. Thankfully my neighbor let me borrow her car to pick up Josiah or he would have had to ride the bus home from school. Something he's never done and would have completely - and I do mean completely - fallen to pieces. (Note to self....this is probably like the buying lunch thing at school...it's a "life skill" that he probably needs to learn just in case of emergency...like if a car doesn't start or something). After David got home and he was unable to jump it, we called the tow truck. David took the boys to basketball practice and I stayed home with the little ones to greet Mr. Tow Truck driver.
Mr. Tow Truck driver arrived an hour later and told us that it's simply the battery terminal - not something worse like an alternator, etc, etc. Hopefully we'll be able to get it taken care of in the morning. Doesn't that make for an exciting day??
On a happier note, I just watched an episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition while I was feeding Caleb before bed. I just love that show. I can't watch it without crying. It is so good to see people being a blessing to others who really need a blessing! My little dead car battery is nothing compared to what a lot of people struggle with every day. I have SO much to be thankful for!!
