Good Grief! The Car Saga Continues
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.
