the little things

Sometimes when things are really crappy you just need to take a step back, breathe, and stop feeling sorry for yourself.

That's what I had to do after my car went back into the shop. I realized it's just money and it comes and goes. No need to cry about it.

I finally got a call today about what is wrong with my car and I'm happy to report good news. It was the alarm system malfunctioning that shut it down but they are able to remove it and get the car going again for $105. Such good news. Pep Boys just stole $785 from me when they replaced the fuel pump. I'm pretty sure it was the alarm that disabled it. Never go to Pep Boys.

So I get my car back today and I'm looking into buying a new one because let's face it, it's about time. Things are looking promising. VW dealerships are having some pretty good sales trying to get rid of their 2010 models. We'll see what happens. My mom offered to buy my car from me so that Andrea can have it. (Message to Andrea: It's still good. I've spent lots of money on it fixing it up so you don't have to.)

AND to top it off.....The Cocoa Bean came around the MTC giving free cupcakes to the employees. The girl knocked on my door and asked me if I wanted one, um YES PLEASE! Totally made my day.

I'm a lame face

I am really sucking it up on this whole blogging thing lately. I never updated on my graduation because I didn't get the pictures off my parents camera. And I never updated on my new apartment because quite honestly, I'm too lazy to take the time to take the pictures.

We did however have a lovely housewarming party a few weekends ago. If you didn't come, you missed out. That is all.

It is almost mid September. How does that happen? Where did summer go? I've finally started working on my class again. I went to the library tonight and almost cried when I walked in. You know how somethings just bring back memories? The library smell did that to me tonight. Not quite exactly sure what it reminded me of but whatever it was made we want to cry.

Other than the one class I just started working on again, I've been spending my days at the MTC, or vegged on my couch watching something not worth my time.

Plans for this fall however, include (1) birthday party for Caitlin, Katie, and me (2) actual birthday (3) San Antonio for my cousin's wedding (4) Boise for a football game

I'm open to filling it up with more fun things. Oh and finishing my lame class. Yeah.....that's number 1.
