I'm hell on motor vehicles, I really am. The Little Blue Go Cart is paralyzed... I'm sure it will end up being the transmission. Big Red's steering is shot... kaput! And after my little 'Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!' departure Friday morning (witnessed by Dickidoo himself) I apparently have 'glossed the clutch' and now The Hemi is stalling out and acting 'not right'. Personally I think there is nothing wrong with the Dodge but made the mistake of pointing out to Dickidoo that he stalls out too (which he does) and he took that opportunity to suggest that it was my fault... as usual.
Oh well, what can a car killing woman do?
I suppose revenge would be in order but not this time. Dickidoo has decided that Big Red would be the better candidate for repairs and will start working on her this evening. (Anything to keep me from further damaging his Precious!) Woo Hoo!
Due to my destructive ways, we are now left with only one working vehicle. For the past two days Dickidoo has dropped me off at work by... you guessed it.... o'dark hundred. And for the past two days I have hoofed it home. Yesterday I made it home in 55 minutes. I thought I was doing good until I found out that it was only 2.7 miles. Today I made it home in 50 minutes. I better be losing weight with all of this, that's all I can say.
Not true. I can say a lot more. For instance walking 2.7 miles for two days in a row actually felt good! There was only one part of the walk, just one block from the house, where I found myself out of breath and feeling like the fat old lady that I am. The rest of the way was really quite invigorating.
But I'd rather be driving Big Red. Hook me up Dickidoo! Yahoo!
p.s. Mama just got the all clear from her doctor. She is officially cancer free and the annoying little port in her side has been removed. Big Sis Lisa has just finished her 4th treatment and will begin a new cycle soon. She is loving her smooth as a baby's bottom head though I imagine she will have to cover up once the heat of summer sets in. She also hasn't had to shave her legs or armpits for 3 weeks now. I guess there really is an up side to all of this. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes. They do help and are always appreciated.
