My spring break felt like weeks and flew by all in one.
I didn't have my boys most of my spring break...It's hard to fill my days when everyone is at work and I have no motivation.
And that kind of sounds like I am complaining, but I'm not.
I had a wonderful, lay around and do nothing sort of break... and sometimes you need that.
I needed that.
I had a LOT of think time and by mid-week though, I had decided that my lemon of a car was just that and I no longer wanted to fight with the dealership in trying to get a transmission fixed that they didn't believe was broken.
So I went and traded it off.
Some of you are probably thinking, "So???"
But you see, I had my car before this one for 12 years. TWELVE years!! I seriously cried and took a picture of it before I left it in the dealer's lot.
My last car, I reluctantly bought. I had done my research. I had saved some money up. I knew what I wanted, but I hate going into debt. I didn't have a choice though. My Cavalier was slowly dying.
I bought it on Black Friday (which my Sister-in-law now tells me is bad luck.) I thought I was happy with it until the fuse to the radio was burnt out. Easy fix, but it gave me a bad feeling. That bad feeling subsided as I begun to love different little features of my new car that my old car couldn't have even thought of. I loved the hatchback and it was perfect for delivering cakes. It had a regular plug in (that the boys just loved!) that was used to recharge batteries, run DVD players, and anything else we could come up with.
But I didn't love that the motherboard went out in the first year, and the barrings - front and back - went out in the second, and the transmission just kept getting worse and worse.
So, as I lay around my house doing nothing, I decided I needed to be done with it.
I really fought myself because once I dedicate myself to something, I am FULLY in - whether it be a car or a relationship.
So, I went in and said my piece and walked away with this beauty.
The perpetual small sorrow of expat life
