I woke up this morning and jumped in the car to run and get my morning caffeine fix in the form of ice cold Dr. Pepper. I will miss this freedom once B (since we don’t know the gender… and won’t be finding out until delivery, we call him/her ‘B’ for blastocyst, obviously a holdover from the early days of the pregnancy) arrives. As I reached the end of the alley, my car started sputtering, the dash lit up, and a message displayed indicating that the car had entered limp-along mode. FANtastic.
I pulled over and killed the engine, waited for a few minutes and restarted the engine. After a few minutes of idling, the car started running properly. After acquiring the necessary caffeine, I headed to my repair shop.
They still have the car — apparently everyone’s car broke down today! They nearly always finish in one day… hopefully tomorrow I’ll have wheels again!
