Ok, I take it back, the drive was nothing compared to what is up now. I live in Minnesota right, so what the hades am I doing trapped in Illinois??? I'll tell you why, because the POS car that we have is currently broken and no one can seem to figure out what is wrong with it. So I'm just lucky that the hubby has fmaily right outside of Chicago that is nice enough to put us up and help us pay for the already more than $1,000 in repairs. All I can say is this trip offically SUCKS big fat monkey balls. Sorry, speaking like my brother there but you get the idea. I barely got to spend time with my family in MI, and now I can't get back to MN to start my new job, Yep, that's right, I have a job in MN to go back to now and I can't get there. And Jay has already missed 3 days of work since we've been here since Saturday night and he was due back Sunday, so this paycheck will be so small that we'll be lucky to have money for gas for that week. I feel like screaming but it would do no good, so I will just eat chocolate.
On a craft note, rescued lots of yarn from the family's house and all my needles and hooks. Plus some books, so at least I have something to do while I'm here. But still, worrying about money for the next 2 weeks, we can't pay rent for next month now cause we had to pay to have the car towed 90 miles back to dad's house, not to mention trying to help pay for the repairs (ha, so can't do that) so it looks like everyone gets an inexpensive present for x-mas. I'm thinking scarves cause I got enough yarn from mom's for those, and of course pictures of Scotty cause I got lots of free prints from McDonalds with that monopoly thing they do.
Off to rescue the baby from Daddy. Thanks for the rant.
