This week sucks!

I know...it's been awhile since I've posted anything but I have been super busy this week!

First of all, over the weekend, Jim spent all day Saturday (his day off) working on a few things on our truck. He fixed the intake gasket and then the heat was all screwy so he fixed that. I was at home waiting for him to finish so I could make dinner. Plus he had to pick something up on the way home in order for me to make said dinner. So he calls me around 7-ish to say he's on his way to the store and he'll be home soon. Like 10 minutes later I get another phone call and he says the truck died and he may have run out of gas but wasn't sure. So like 20 minutes goes by and I go to check my cell phone and it's off! Yeah...it's been randomly shutting off on me, so that sucked. So like the minute I turn it on, Jim's calling me telling me to come get pick him up. So I pick him up, we got get a few gallons of gas, go back to the truck, put the gas in and that wasn't the problem. We leave the truck in the parking lot and deal with it the next day. We ended up eating dinner at like 9:30 that night. Fish tacos, which were delicious by the way...



Needless to say, the truck is now in a shop somewhere. Monday it was towed there and it turns out the timing chain broke in like 2 places. So they replace that, and it still doesn't fix the problem. Today I guess they're going to make sure the camshaft is turning, so who knows what's going to happen. Thankfully the inlaws are letting us use one of their cars this week otherwise we'd have to rent one and I really don't want to do that.
But this weekend we're supposed to visit Jim's sister in Grand Rapids (about 3 hours away) and we were going to go Saturday and spend the night with a friend, Elena. It seems like whenever we go to Grand Rapids, Elena is back in town here...we always miss each other!

So that means we have to drop $100 on a hotel room and then like another $100 on gas. With all these car repairs and not even knowing when we're going to get the truck back, I don't know if we can swing it! I'd rather not go, and neither would Jim, so we may be able to get out of it.

Oh and then my cell phone shutting off randomly...yeah it's still doing that. Like I said...this week sucks!!

I'm sorry your week has sucked, because you definitely have enough reasons to say that . . . but those fish tacos do look awesome! :)

Here's to a fun weekend regardless of money and NEXT WEEK!
