When it Rains, it Pours

I don't even know where to begin! I guess I'll start by letting you all know that over the weekend my sister, Heather and brother-in-law had to bring their car to the service garage. The check engine light on their dash was on and so they wanted to get it looked at. Being the nice sister that I am, I met them at the dealership so they weren't stranded there all day and would have a ride back home. All is good. Then, Heather and I decided to hit up Target since the dealership was right next to it. Bad move. I can never get out of there WITHOUT spending any money. Anyways, their car was scheduled to be looked at on Monday. Awesome, Heather and I will ride to work together since she won't have a car and thankfully, we work at the same place. Monday morning came and we enjoyed each other's company, stopped at Starbucks (blueberry muffins and coffee, uhh YUM!), and made it to work on time. Bonus! 

Then Tuesday rolled around. Their car was still in the shop. So I was recruited once more to take Heather into work. Cool, no big deal, we'll stop at Starbucks again. :) I was all ready to go and then I get in my car annnnd it wouldn't start. IT WOULDN'T START! How does this happen?? They have car troubles and then I get sucked in the bad karma loop and now I have car trouble! What the heck? Now, I'm just annoyed. Literally, minutes before I went in my car my Mom asked me if I wanted to take her car to work instead today to save on gas. My parents have a Chevy Volt. Literally, no gas would have to be used for my commute but I declined. Well, here I go back into the house asking my Mom if I can take her car. Thank goodness there was an extra car to take! Without it, Heather and I both would have been stranded. Alas, we made it to and from work again safely and her car will be out of the shop tomorrow. Thank the Lord! Now I just have to figure out what's going on with mine :/ I'll be sure to keep you updated.

To top off my day, it's raining. Not just little sprinkles of rain but buckets of rain pouring down, thunder-storming. Oy. I just want to be home with a good book and a cozy blanket right now.
