“Are we done with Christmas?”

I was taking down the stockings and garland when Big T asked me this

ūüôĀ

I guess we are done with the official celebrations, but really, I should celebrate in my heart all year long. Carry the Christmas spirit with me all the time. The spirit of love, joy and peace.

Last night, I went grocery shopping. ALONE. I got a coffee from dunkin donuts, got my new ipod loaded with music, and cruised the aisles for an hour. By myself. I was doing a chore, I know…but it was the best time I had all day. Why was the day so bad? Well, I had another mishap with¬†my stupid piece-of-crap-bad-luck car. While backing out of my parking space in our snow and ice covered unplowed lot, I sliiiiiid into the car behind me. That car had nary a scratch on it. My stupid piece-of-crap-bad-luck car is broken to pieces. A piece actually broke off¬†the rear bumper and fell off.

I am SO done. I am getting another car ASAP. One that can handle the winter around here. 

Love, joy and peace. Love, joy and peace…

“Take my clips off, I’ll fix the window”

Seriously, I hate cars. Always one problem or another. Today is probably the coldest day we have had so far this winter. This morning was around 25F. Well my car decided it would be¬†the perfect¬†morning for the motor rolling the driver’s side window to break. I think it froze. Anyway, the glass went down and did not go back up. Big T was so sweet and helpful about it.

He goes “Mommy, is the window broken? Take my (car seat) clips off, I’ll fix the window”

I wish it were that easy, kid.

I drove to work with¬†the heat on full blast, and I was still freezing ūüôĀ I called Mr T (my husband), crying on the phone and ranting about how I never wanted to use this car again, and how I would love to get rid of the car.

Now I have to shell out $$$ to fix it. It’s not really something I can ignore.

OK, I need to be thankful… I need a thankful post to balance out the complaining…

I am thankful that my family is healthy, that I actually have a car, and that I was eventually able to pull the glass back up (although it will probably slide back down again). I am thankful this happened on a Friday, and I am thankful that my co-worker (who had no idea I was having a challenging morning) brought me a blueberry muffin and it was waiting for me on my desk when I got into work. I really like blueberry muffins.
