On the Road Again..

I never got the chance to blog about this.. but about 2 weeks ago.. on a Thursday afternoon I went to get in my car and go to Walmart. Well, my car decided she didn't wanna crank. She cranked up but then kept immediately dying. And I know NOTHING about cars.. but daddy said to look under the hood and make sure everything is attached properly. To which I said.. "are you kidding? How am I supposed to know?"
Well Ally and I ventured out to look under the hood.. and lo and behold some tube that comes out of the engine was broken in half.
So I had to call a mechanic, describe the problem, and then he referred me to a tow truck service. And if you know anything about me, I HATE calling people. I never know what to say.. and particularly when it comes to mechanics. Car issues are a BOY job. That's mine and mama's policy. But I survived. And had to camp out in the parking lot to wait on the tow truck to arrive and tow my sweet Betsy away. So Ally took tons of photos to document:
It got a little emotional watching her be driven away! haha
Well FINALLY today they called and my car was fixed and ready to be picked up! Betsy is running smooth as EVER and I'm pumped to finally not have to rely on Ally to be my personal chauffeur. I promised her I'd drive her everywhere for 2 weeks! ;)

I know exactly how you feel when it comes to cars. I know nothing and it's truely a man's job. Cars are always better when they work and it's nice when they come back fixed.
