During preschool we had some friends join us to run errands. First up, Old Navy, the store I have 2 bags of things to return/exchange/price adjust...sitting in my bedroom at home. Then we head to Costco where I hop out to get gas and realize my Costco card/credit card are not in my purse. Hmmm...makes it a little tricky, but thankfully my friend was willing to share her card so I could buy the gas and must-have dog food and (hopefully) last box of diapers. Oh and I had something to return at Costco too....in a bag in our hallway at home. :)
Arrived for preschool pick-up smelling Miss Em had yet another of the AWFUL (and painful) antibiotic induced-filled diaper. Yuck!
Then the day really headed downhill a bit...
After around 5 months of my car smelling musty, mildewy and all-around sour, and many failed attempts (including carpet cleaning) to get rid of the smell, we pulled back various parts of the carpet and found the padding to be extremely wet despite the carpet not being wet at all. After a call to the dealer, it appears possible our A/C vent may be plugged and we could be looking at spending anywhere from $600 to thousands of dollars to fix it or suffer the foul smelling (and probably not too healthy) mildewy air. Ugh.
While pulling out the awesome Little Green Clean Machine to try and suck out some of the moisture, I realized I mistakenly unplugged our outdoor freezer last Wednesday and all of the food (including meat) was thawed and had to be thrown out. Yep - it was a bit difficult throwing all of that food (aka $$$$) in the trash while looking at spending tons of money on our car for a problem that doesn't even affect it's driving ability and oh did I mention Friday will be Kyle's last day of work as he was pink-slipped and laid off again???
Now don't fear, we all have our days and I haven't lost my faith. I'm still believing strongly that God has great plans for us and will provide for us as he always has. But today was not the best, but so far from the worst.
My cure? A good run, fresh air with the family and a little time in the Word and my Bible study. Oh and blogging of course! :)
