Car Troubles, Pursuit of Love, and Mosquito Bites

Car problems never seem to happen at the time when you have a massive windfall of money.  Actually, I've never had a massive windfall of money, so I guess I cannot accurately make that assumption.  Regardless, I find myself without a car today while the car Doctor checks her out.  I'm anxiously awaiting "the call".  I was anticipating it arriving around 11, but now it's just past noon and still no word.  Can that be good? 

My good friend is off on an adventure of a lifetime.  I worried about her.  Just like in the movies, she flew halfway across America to pursue the "one that got away".  She's laying it all on the line for a chance at love and no regrets.  I worry for her heart, a lot.  But, being the hopeless romantic that I am, I do wish for the fairy tale happy ending.  A wedding.  A kiss.  Babies.  Love.  The whole nine-yards.  I look forward to hearing of her travels.

Mosquitoes are devil birds.  I hate them.  I have at least 15 bites (that I can identify) that are the size of dimes on my body.  They itch like the dickens.  The fantastic part is that I sprayed myself with OFF three flippin' times!  The little devils LOVE me.  Stupid pests.

I hope my car is okay.  Also, I hope you're having a FABULOUS day!

At least you can't fault the mosquitoes for their taste, they only go after the best. : j

I hope your car is ok too, and don't read too much into it if they haven't called by any given time. They simply not have gotten to it yet. ; j

Unfortunately...it was bad news. Very. Bad. News. The kind of news that makes you realize that you'd-better-know-the-bus-route-or-you're-screwed-for-getting-to-work-tomorrow kind of news. :(

The mosquitoes are bad here, too. I have inhaled enough Off to kill me and still have bites. sigh.

Here's wishing your friend the best of luck. Cheers~
