This week has been our spring break. John & I had plans for this week for months. Well, we knew we were going to do something but we never really decided on what to do. We talked Branson Missouri, Dallas, Texas, Shreveport, Louisiana and many others. We have been known to decide at the last minute and that is what we did this time. On Sunday we finally decided where we were going and we would leave Monday after we dropped Tori's car in the shop to get the CV joints replaced. (she was driving my car)
BUT THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN!
You see Meg had come down to watch our animals and her car had been tripping a fuse causing her tail lights and dash board lights to go out! Not good! So John tried and tried to fix the thing Sunday night to no avail. We took the car to the shop the next day. Meg's light switch had to be replaced in the steering column.....that's what was blowing all the lights.
WE DECIDED TO POSTPONE THE TRIP!
Tori's car was swapped out for Meg's on Tuesday. We paid Adam(the mechanic) $300 for fixing Meg's car. We were hoping Tori's car would be done by Wednesday afternoon. Well, that morning Adam called us and said that Tori's rack and pinion steering needed to be replaced because the seals were blown out. It wouldn't be ready until Friday and it was going to cost $790!!!
UGH! $1090 in one week to our mechanic!
It hasn't been a bad break though. It has actually been relaxing. I've got to go to the gym with John everyday.....he is my personal, personal trainer! :) Both our daughters have been home and we have had homemade dinners and watched movies. We have been content just being with each other!
Then John said, "you know what.....screw it! I only get two weeks vacation a year....we are going!"
We are headed here.....to Tunica, Mississippi!! Maybe we will win that $1090 back that we shelled out to Adam.
I'm excited cause we are going to eat here....at this woman's restaurant!
I've been wanting to go to Tunica just to eat at her buffet. I heard it was AMAZING!!! So all diets are out the window!!! You know everything taste better with butter!
Wish us luck!!!!
