I will admit last week I didn't do as much running as I should have. I don't know what my problem was, I was just being lazy if I am going to be honest. I hope to turn that around this week.
MY YIKES THIS WEEK
Thursday I was on my way to work and my car started to go crazy, then my brakes went out. So I veered it to the right and grabbed the emergency brake to stop it all the way.
Thankfully, it couldn't of happened in a better spot. I also have an awesome dad who came right after I called him on the phone, then took me to work and then took care of getting my car home for me.
For those who have followed my blog for a while you may already know my car issues last fall. Well I finally realized I have been really lucky, and possibly this was the vehicle saying, my time is up. So I told it thanks for only breaking down at spots and in ways where I have been lucky to get help, and then I said goodbye!
OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW
The next day I went to look at cars, and thanks to having a brother-in-law who works at a dealership he was able to get me an excellent deal.
Which is good because I hate car payments, I bought my last new car in 2000 and I haven't had a car payment in well over 13 years....
So I walked away with this cute little red beauty, fully loaded and all the upgrades possible:) It's already been named. I call it PEPPER:)
It was actually a woman I work with at one of my jobs who came up with the name, but it's cute and I like it so it's stuck!
Funny thing, after I bought my first car in college and then when it died a tragic death from a guy who couldn't drink coffee and drive. Then after another accident in my friends car shortly after, I swore I would never drive or buy a car ever again. I was terrified of them. Which is why I stuck with trucks and SUV's... However, I should really learn to never say never...
So now that I have a dependable car again, I am thinking a trip is definitely in order. No idea when or where. I am not going to plan anything. But knowing myself, if I am in the mood I will probably just leave town with less than a moments notice. I am thinking it will probably happen sooner than later!
WORKING WITH THE YOUTH
I was also asked this week if I would accept a calling to work with the young women in my church. I decided to do the christian thing and accept. Not that I will probably be any good, I don't even know if they'll like me. But I said I would give it a try. The woman who asked for my help, said some very kind things about why she chose me, and she really believes my free spirit, I can do anything I put my mind to attitude will be great for these girls who are Juniors and Seniors in high school.
I don't know if she will be right, but it will be a challenge and I guess I am always up for a challenge!
What happened with your week?
