So our car stopped working the other day. I was just driving along, about to turn onto our street and it stopped. We think it's the timing belt. So we've had our truck between the two of us, which wouldn't be bad except I transport children as part of my job so I have to have a vehicle. Anyway, that was unfortunate event #1. Then yesterday, W went to the store to get some batteries before I went to work. I had to leave at 12:00 and at 11:40 he called me and told me he had accidentally locked the keys in the truck. It was a little stressful but luckily my friend Melanie was nice enough to take me to the store with my keys so I could unlock the truck. That was the second unfortunate event. Then last night, Melanie and I went walking and lo and behold, when we got back to my truck, I realized I had locked my keys inside. Seriously! I couldn't even believe it. It was even worse since she knew about the earlier incident and was the person who helped us out then. So I had to ask her, once more, to take me to my house to get the other set of keys. It's been crazy. It makes me realize how much I take for granted having two vehicles and also that I haven't locked my keys in the car for ten years. I really think the last time was when I was a nanny in Minnesota. I guess when it rains it pours.
Also, today is my birthday. I seriously cannot even believe I am 29. Not sure how that happened. I got my hair cut this morning and took this picture in the mirror after with my camera phone. I have the day off of work and it's so nice to just hang out at home, scrapbook, read, and relax.
Last year I made a layout with 28 things I wanted to accomplish before I turn 29. You can see it by clicking here. I accomplished quite a few of the things on the list. There were 7 things I didn't do and a couple I did mostly or partially. The first one, go to Canada, was all planned out and then we got sick that week. But overall, I got most of these things accomplished. I might make another layout for this year. Kind of a fun way to list out my goals.
Also, can everyone see my links / sidebar to the right? Since I've been making my pictures bigger, things have been a little weird. I can see them, but let me know if you can't. Update: If you view my blog in Firefox, it looks normal. If you view it in Internet Explorer, the sidebar is gone. So weird. I'm trying to figure out how to fix it.
