Yesterday was my birthday, and for those keeping tabs I'm now 46 years old.
I'm a big girl now, on second thought forget I said that.
My day started like anyother I got up at six to take my husband and then my daughter to work and school. But I kept looking for Mitzi.
I forgot she not there anymore, and she doesn't need to let out, but I can't help it I keep wanting to check on her. I guess 20 years to take care of a dog you get into certain habits. But I miss her too.
Later in the day I went to pick up my daughter at school and the serpentine fan broke on my car.
Rattle, rattle, rattle.
Slap, slap, slap.
And then the smell of burning rubber and the steering got hard, and I thought please God just let me make it to the school parking lot.
I did but I had one hard right hand turn, and then one really difficult left hand turn, and finally I could just drive straight and park my car.
I called my parents on my cell phone thank God they were home and could help me. Then they came and got my daughter and myself then we picked up my husband.
My husband check on the belt, and I was right that was the problem. "See I told you," I told him, and "all this just had to happen right on my birthday didn't it?"
I thought if we can just get it fixed right away and cheaply, that will be present enough for me.
Thank fully my husband with surprisingly enough my daughter's help was able to fix it. My husband was having a hard time getting the darn belt on, while I held up the hood. So my daughter rolled up her sleeves actually got the belt on correctly.
I thanked my parents and gave my step-dad a big hug was coming to our rescue yet again, then we celebrated by going home and taking turns in the shower and getting the grease off ourselves.
Actually we did that then we went to IHOP for my birthday dinner.
I had a chicken sandwich that had grilled veggies in it, and I asked for half onion ring and half french fries. And I was told that they normally don't do that but since it was a slow night they could.
And it was yummy too!
At least one thing worked out on that day.
