My week has been...crazy. Yeah, that's probably the best word to describe it. Tuesday morning on the way to work my car just suddenly stopped accelerating...in the middle of the road. Luckily I was still in town and not on the interstate when it happened. Two hours later it was finally towed to the service dept. at the dealership that just reopened here in town two weeks ago.
The good news was they knew exactly what was wrong with it even before they'd hooked it up to the computer. The bad news was that they didn't have the part because they aren't fully stocked yet. Two days later and my car is still sitting in their parking lot waiting for the part to arrive from Atlanta.
Baby Girl woke up yesterday with that I thought was another round of strep. It's a little difficult to get to the doctor and the pharmacy without a car. After much shuffling (and chauffeur service from my wonderful mother!) we had medicine and are waiting on the 72 hour strep test.
After days of wind and rain my roof is finally being fixed. Great! Except that meant I was home with a sick child as they banged repeatedly over my head. They're doing a great job and are moving very quickly...it was just bad timing.
So, I've really had one of those weeks from hell when nothing seems to be going right.
To spread some good cheer - and hopefully start today out on a better foot - I'm going to give away a copy of each of my books, Afterburn and Whispers in the Dark, the prequel to my upcoming Jan release. Whine about your week. Tell me about your nightmare car experience. Post a joke to make me laugh. Just post anything. Seriously.
