I Just Want My Car Back…

It is so much fun having a buddy to go to the gym with!

Today’s BodyPump seemed so much better, just knowing that I had Mal to join me. I think she really enjoyed her first class, and I’m hoping she’ll come buddy up with me again…I have a bunch of guest passes.

Do you have a gym buddy?

After BodyPump, Mal and I headed back to our place to meet up with Jay and Brian for a nice Italian dinner…perfect refueling food in my opinion!

First Course: Salad with a drizzle of Italian dressing,


and Mastroianni bread with dipping oil (I had 2 slices).


Main Course: Rigatoni with my own homemade sauce and some parmesan cheese.


The sauce was sooooo good! My big batch has been sitting in the freezer waiting for the perfect opportunity to make an appearance, so when we found out Brian and Mal would be joining us, there was no question…it was a sauce kinda night! Winking smile


Dinner also required a glass of vino…


Which was determined after I found out that my car is completely dead and I need to replace my battery.


To make a long story short…when I went to leave work today, my car was completely “dunzo” – no startup, no nothin’. Luckily, I was able to hitch a ride back home with a co-worker, then have Jay come and pick me up at home so I could meet Mal at the gym for our class. WHEW!

When I got home from class, I was informed from hubby that he went to check out the battery and there was no jumping it at all.


I really do try my best not to be a whiner and try to stay positive on my blog, but let me just take a moment to vent…

“AHHHHHHHH!!! I don’t have time for this!!!” Steaming mad

Ok, much better. Now let’s just hope it’s an easy (and not too expensive) fix…

Luckily, I have tomorrow off for my second round of allergy testing, so at least I don’t have to worry about my car too early…considering the fact that it’s still sitting in the school parking lot right now!

Oy vey.

Question for the Night:

What was the last setback that you had to deal with? How did you handle it?

    I hope it’s just a simple battery fix…those usually aren’t too bad! Car troubles are no fun because they ALWAYS happen at the worst possible times! My car once died in a parking garage – do you know that most tow trucks don’t have clearance for parking garages? I didn’t until that day – it was not fun!

    Oh no! That stinks! I guess today the cars decided to take a sick day because I had to take mine to the shop to buy a new tire because one of my tires decided it wanted to get a nail in it.

    Oh well, just one of those days I guess : )

    & some wine might just help with that 😉
    Good luck with the allergy testing tomorrow & GOOD luck with the car stuff!!

    Oh Courtney I totally feel your pain. How about I took my car in for what I thought was an oil leak, mmm 4 weeks and a new engine later I finally got behind the wheel again! My family and boyfriend were really great to let me use their vehicles or shuttle services during that time. Besides I looked at the rides as good catch up time I might not have gotten that day otherwise! :)

    Good Luck!
