A continuation of my car drama

So I took my car back to be fixed this morning. I get it back and it is not fixed. As a matter of fact it is worse than it was when I started this nonsence. When I got home from work it smelled like there was something burning so my brother was looking around. We found where some hydrolic fluid was leaking and he found a brake spring around the clutch. No wonder my clutch isn't working. So I am done with taking it to that mechanic. Now I have to pay someone else to fix their screwup. I am so mad.

A little uncomfortable

I work at a loan company and unfortunately our higher ups are greedy and make us work late to try to make them that extra dollar. When we work late we are usually the only people in the shopping center and the lighting is not good. Tonight was a little unnerving. A few minutes before we were suppose to leave K went to put some stuff in her car. I thought I heard her talking to someone, when I got up to look I see her walking across the parking lot so I sat back down thinking I was just hearing things. She comes back in and asks if I saw him. Him turned out to be a guy I used to run around with in high school. We quit hanging out when he got bad into drugs. K proceeds to tell me he was right outside our door with a hood over his head. A few minutes later 5 cop cars are in our parking lot and talking to this guy. Not sure what that was all about, but it is a little nerve wracking to think of what he was doing there standing outside our door in the dark. Now when he is sober I would never think that he would hurt me, but with him on drugs you just never know. I hate this guy turned out the way he did.

Even though now I am home, I am still a little freaked out. What if he was going to try and rob us? What did he do that there were so many cop cars surrounding him?

I am not an idiot.

I had my clutch replaced less than a month ago. Today was the 2nd time I have had my car in the shop because of this clutch. The tell me it is a spring this time, ok fine. I go to pick up my car and I can't put it in gear. I go in and tell the guy and another mechanic comes up and tells me that I need to push the clutch in. So he comes outside to show me how to work the clutch. UMM HELLO I know how a clutch works. He has major problems getting it to go in gear and it grinds when he does. He proceeds to tell me that I need a new clutch. WHAT?!?!?!?!?!? He just put a new clutch in less than a month ago. Another mechanic comes out and tells me the throw out bearing must be bad. YEAH YOU WERE SUPPOSE TO CHANGE THAT AS WELL LESS THAN A MONTH AGO! So my car is still not fixed and these people are idiots or they think I am one. I am so mad that someone had to drive my car from the bay to the front of the buiding and did not "notice" that there was a problem. Then they try to make it sound like it was operator error.

I think he just knows

J called me last night to let me know that he was fixing to travel back to the FOB. As some of you know we are TTC, without much luck. My Dr put me on some fertility meds and I was really hoping that while he was home for R&R that it would be our turn. I had pysched myself up, only to be disappointed. As I was laying in bed last night crying, my phone rings and it is J. His flight was cancelled,so he called to let me know. I tried to hide my disappointment, but he knows me well enough that he knew something was wrong. So I told him, of course he said the right stuff to make me feel better, even though I was disappointed. He normally would not have called me since it was late, but somehow he just knew I needed reassurance that only he could give. Gosh I love that man.

Where has the time went

Its been a while since I have blogged. So much has happened. I went back to work for the same company I was at before J joined the Army. It has been a blessing and a curse. I am making money and wasting time until J comes home, but its the same crap that made me hate working there. I just have to keep telling myself that it is only temporary.

We are more than half way through this deployment. J left a few days ago to go back to the sandbox after R&R. I have come to the conclussion that 15 days does not make up for 6 months gone. We had such a good time though. It has amazed me at how fast time has gone by since J left in June. Now if this deployment would just be over. Not that i don't realize that I only have him for about a year before he has to go back.

Christmas has came and went. First Christmas in 6 years without J. I made it through and no one got hurt. While J was home he got me diamond earings, a watch, a S&W 380 Bodyguard, and some smaller items like clothes.

We had the joy of welcoming a new niece into our family and will be welcoming a nephew in March. We are hoping that within the next year and a half that we will be welcoming our own little one into the world.
