Seriously, It Can Only Go Up From Here

My car died at CVS today.

Since I was there by myself with WC, I asked a random guy walking by to come have a look-see (and since he and I were wearing the same marathon T, I thought we might be kindred spirits and all and surely he'd be a huge help). He guessed it was either the battery or alternator, then shrugged and said "Sorry" as he was walking off to his own working vehicle.

Things started to look up after a nice guy offered to help push me to a better location to be jumped, but my jumper cables were crap.

Stop the madness!

All is well now. The kids are clean and in bed. I just chased my Lexapro with a Mike's Light Hard Cranberry Lemonade.

On a more exciting note, my Couch to 5K story is up at Operation Skinny Bitch! If you haven't checked it out, what are you waiting for?

Oh that sucks, but hey my battery died while in car rider line last year! Yep that was me blocking everyone from getting their oh so cute ones from school:)

Sorry to hear about your car. Thanks for the C25K info. As for the Plagio, see if your Pedi will refer you to a physical therapist. Demand it if you have to. The PT will measure the head and be able to tell you if might need a helmet. Then, they will refer you to a Helmet Dr. There, they will scan the head (for more accurate measurements) and tell you for sure if a helmet is needed. There is only a certain time frame that a helmet can be worn. I think the oldest it can be worn is up to 18 months. I am not 100% sure on that though. When finding a Helmet DR, tell your PT that you want a place that uses the scanner (NOT the plaster) to make the helmet. The plaster is horrible, long and scary for children). Let me know if there is anything else you need!

Went over & read your story and while the story was great, I must say, Mr. Sasha is HOT!!

Hope things start looking up :)

Amen sista! I have been dealing with those same thoughts lately. My battery died due to a fan that refuses to stop. It's with the mechanic now so I can only hope things go up from here.

Hey, I'm a frequent reader and have posted anonymously a few times. I have jumped on the blog bandwagon and listed you in my blog roll. Not sure if their is some kind of blog protocal or something, just thought I'd let you know. You sent me your couch to 5k program in the spring and I just did a 5 mile a few weeks ago. Thanks for the inspiration.
