He really was happy, I promise!
As we were heading toward Des Moines, we decided that the gorgeous weather called for a visit to the zoo. Great decision! We went for a bit and had a blast!
On the way home, our 'Service Engine Soon' light popped on. Cue the horrific memories of our road trip from New York. Pulled straight into a service station and made an appointment for the morning. Dreading what I was going to find out, I took the car in this morning. Of course it's never good. Transmission issues. Another big job. With all we've gone through with this Blazer, if we had more money, I would have gone and picked out a new car. With the reality being what it is, my brother Moishy is coming to get the car tomorrow to have it serviced back home, with a mechanic we know and trust, who quoted us 1/3 of the price! And, in the meantime, I have a fun little rental car. So today was pretty much used up on dealing with the car!
And today was a horrible day to lose, it was 66 degrees outside! So much potential to go out and have a great day! When I finally left the rental agency, I quickly went home to get Shuky and Benny and we ran to the park while there was still some beautiful sunlight left! And, to make up for the lack of fun, Benny's bath involved a bathing suit tonight. :)
We rented some movies so off I go to pop some popcorn that I will ultimately regret eating! Have a good night one and all!
