Recently our van started acting up and we took it in to be fixed. I hate car problems with a passion. We only have one car, the umpire takes the bus each morning to his teaching job. So when our only vehicle is gone I feel stranded and completely codependent. Which is extremely aggravating.
Why is it so hard to ask for help from people who you know will gladly help you out? Who knows but it is. I hate to inconvenience anyone and love the freedom of being able to do my glamorous chauffeur responsibilities each day with my amazing mini van extraordinaire.
It only took about a day and a half to get the car fixed and back. To me it felt like a year! It was a very busy day to not have a vehicle due to field trips and an Olympic reenactments at preschool. Thanks to friends and family who helped us, we made it through the day in one piece!
