Don't you hate it when your day goes from good to bad all in the matter of a few hours? Well, it happened to me today.
When I was 23, I graduated from college debt free two years before. I was living at home, rent free. And I didn't have any bills. So, I decided that I needed a new car. Instead of buying something that I could afford the maintenance on years down the road when I was married and had a mortgage, I sprung for the best car I had ever seen, a Lexus IS 250. Now, Lexi, my car, is the most wonderful car. I love her so much, but sometimes her tastes are just a little out of my budget. But, I am thankful that she is paid for.
At lunch, I took Lexi to get an oil change. After I had eaten, I get a call saying that Lexi needs 2 new tires, new roaters and new brake pads. Nice!! The man said that he was surprised that I hadn't had a blow out yet. Yikes!
So, Fred and I go to the place and they say that it will be about $1,100 to replace everything. Nice. Who knew I'd be having a $1,110 lunch? I mean, Subway wasn't that great.
My Lexi is high maintenanced. She likes the Manolo Blahniks of tires. The price you pay to make your children look good.
Last week, our washer was leaking; so, we had to get the repair guys to come and fix it. Thankfully we did not have to buy a new one. And our refrigerator also needs a new water filter.
Bad things come in three's, right? So, Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas to us!!!
And if you didn't think I was crazy with all of my Knox stories, now you should.
***In other news, the Spinach Ravioli Bake was awesome. You must try!!! And for dessert, try these yummy cookies!! It was a great way to end a good/bad/good day!
