Good Grief! The Car Saga Continues

Sunday, while Hubby worked on the car the entire day, I got 3 "F" bombs done for my current order.  Just 3 more to get done.

Monday, I went with Hubby to work on the car again.  His exact words were, "it'll be 1/2 hour tops and we'll bring her home."  It didn't happen.  She's still not running after putting her all back together.  I was starving and we were thankful for leftover turkey and sweet potatoes when we arrived home late.   

Sadly, we didn't have any time to cut wood.  Hubby is going work on the car every night until they figure it out.  We didn't have the boys help yesterday, and Hubby is stumped.  It starts, but won't stay running.  They will hook up a code test and see what comes of that next.

Since we have been super busy with the car, I have a full "to-do" list today.  Over the top long.  The sink is filled with dirty dishes and the housework is so far behind.  Daughter had a full day of musical practice Monday and that continues after school, so the entire to-do list lands on me alone.  

My computer area in my kitchen is a total mess.  Papers need shredded, papers filed, mail opened and sorted, and printed recipes laying around.  Sigh....I'm gonna need a lot of coffee today.

Send good mojo that Hubby and the boys can get my car running, and soon.  They are needing the garage to work on their skid loader next, and we are hogging up their garage space.  

Everything is just a hot mess today.  Every room a mess.  I don't even know where to start today.  Please be patient as I respond to comments when I can.

I wish you luck and patience. Breathe deeply and remember everything will work out least you're not a cold starving refugee in some camp. It could always be worse!

I must confess, I don't understand what the F-bombs are for. I understand the cuss word for it, but don't think that's what it is.
My colonoscopy didn't go well, and they wanted me to come back for a second day to make sure everything was empty. I told them NO. I've had enough of it, plus I discovered AFTER that I hadn't been given proper eating (or rather drinking) instructions for diabetics. So that's another thing I'm grumpy about. I went without food of any kind other than the drinking solution, tea and diet Sprite for 2 days, and that's not good for someone with diabetes.
Am praying you get your car fixed. They can be a vexation for sure. Bro Tom finally gave up on his and let the dealer have it back. He'd been having trouble with the transmission sensor since the day after he got it, and finally it just wouldn't shift at all.
Maybe we all need to go back to horse & buggies. sigh
Praying everyone has a great few days ahead, and safe ones too. We're expecting a couple of inches of snow here in south central NC. SURPRISE!!! LOL I wonder what the new rescue dog (Milo) will think about that.
God bless.
