A Broken Home…

on December 8, 2014

Well, my home had to be towed this evening. 😦 I need to have my four wheel drive selector switch replaced. It’s been a long time coming, and I can obviously no longer put it off. Well, let me look at the bright side: it needed an oil change anyway. 🙂 I was at 6% oil life remaining, so it had to be done sooner or later.

What’s funny is I had just had some awesome Chinese food for dinner and had texted my stepmom to ask if I could just stay at her place, when my car decided, in the absolute worst part of the road, to casually slip out of gear and not go back into one. :-/

I was planning on just sleeping in my car once it got to the shop, but I’m not sure how much I would actually get being so close to a hospital. There are quite a few sirens going off this evening. Must be a lot of craziness going on for a Monday night! Plus this is not exactly a choice neighborhood to relax in, and I would probably sleep horribly.

Currently I am sitting in my car, waiting for my mom. I’ll probably have to use up some personal time, but it needs to get taken care of. Oh joy! As crappy as this night became, there have been friendly and helpful people getting me through it. My friend who pushed my car a quarter mile with his own (thank you, Paul). My stepmom offering to send my dad out here (thank you, Min). The tow truck driver who was super nice (thank you tow truck guy). The guy at the mechanic’s shop who was on night duty, offered to let me watch tv until my ride showed up, and took my key and said he’d keep an eye on my car for me (thank you mechanic guy). My mom who drove an hour to come pick my sorry ass up (thank you mom). As crappy as my day has seemed to be, I can’t help but be thankful for all the good people who help me out in my times of need.

Anyway, I am tired. My brain hurts. My eyeballs hurt. It’s been a very long day, and I am worn the eff out! So I wish you a good night and pleasant dreams. I’ll be staying at mom’s tonight…
