Today dh was out on a motorcycle ride so I thought I'd hit a few stores. I went to Kohl's and was leaving there when I stopped at a red light and wouldn't you know it my oil light blinked on. It may be at this part you need to know some history about my car.
My car is a 15 year old escort purple station wagon. It's been a good little car, but last year I stopped at Taco Bell, had lunch and when I came out, got into my car, went to start it and it made a horrible noise and then it was dead. We towed it home ($160) and eventually decided to have an engine put into it. I didn't want to buy a new car because I don't want car payments.
So a few days ago I told dh that my car was leaking something. Instead of him checking it out, he let it go and, of course, I'm the one who gets stranded. When I let Kohl's I headed to Kmart. When I got into Kmart I called dh but he didn't answer his phone because he was on the motorcycle. Then I called my daughter, three times and no answer from her. My son was the last on the list; I called him and he didn't answer his phone either. GRR! I called dh again and he finally answered his phone. As it happened he was just right up the street from where I was...yeah!
And then when dh and I were in the store buying motor oil dd and ds called. Hahaha..but really, I thought I was gonna be stuck at Kmart for a very long time. I hate that feeling.
Then dh and I went out to eat and he followed me home on his motorcycle.
Tomorrow dh is gonna change the oil filter because his brother told him recently that the Fram oil filters were found defective or something and they leak oil. I guess you learn something new everyday, right?
Dd is making me lunch tomorrow...tuna fish sandwiches and potato chips! She said she might even take me out for ice cream! When I was talking to ds he said he had to work until Wed so Thurs he is gonna take me out to lunch. How sweet.
