500 posts? For real?

Wow. I'm one chatty sack of somebody, aren't I?

I was hoping I might have some good news today. Nothing in particular, but it seemed like maybe things might be on the upswing.

Okay except for the fact that the crankshaft on my car went out on Thursday. And the car died right in the middle of a really busy highway. And I had to shell out hundreds of dollars to get it fixed. That sucked.

But you know, in the grand scheme of things I guess that was minor. No one hit us on the really busy highway. We were safe in the car. Except Girl Child farted once and I thought Boy Child and I were going to die, but other than that, we were safe.

Nothing interesting or exciting has happened today, though.

I guess that's probably a blessing. After all, something interesting and exciting could have happened and knowing me? It would have put me in the hospital. Then you wouldn't have quality posts like this one. In which I have nothing really good to say.

Well, the fact that you both survived a girl child fart. . .that's saying something big.

Caroline has learned that when someone else burps or farts, they need to say excuse me.

So, if you make the offensive noise -- without missing a beat, you'll hear in this high-pitched squeaky voice, "Excuse me!"

Sorry about the car. But hey, like you said, it could've been worse, right?

500 posts is exciting! Nevermind the fact you survived both the car dying and Girl Child's stinky fart. Good job!

So, how many of those 500 posts did you complain in?.....oh I am just joking!

Paying for broken crankshaft: several hundred dollars

Boy child and Girl Child still alive: priceless

Happy 500!

Congrats on 500 posts!

It's always a good thing to look around for something to be thankful for, in the midst of the blahs;).

I'm glad things are starting to look positive in your life! You deserve it!
As for the car dying that totally sucks! I've had that happen to me...my car overheated in 90 degree weather (the car btw was a complete hunk of junk!) The best part was it was in front of an amusement park...so I had to have all the parking control people push me out of the way..fun fun!

I hate it when I have car problems. Up until D's last deployment we always just had the one car. Now that we are lucky enough to have two I don't worry as much about the whole 'what will I drive?' problem but more about the 'how much will THAT cost?' problem.

Sorry that happened to you, it really blows!

Guess what! I had a crankshaft go out in my car once and do you know what kind of car it was?

A Hyundai.

Just saying.
