Where NOT to be at 9pm

Last night as I was driving home, my car (that is also home to my many opinionated bumper stickers) started slowing down and I was cruising on I-20W. Now, I do have rather short legs and sometimes it takes an extra effort to extend my leg to the gas to keep my speed up, but the car was slowing down no matter what I was doing to the gas. I put my hazards on and started to pull over to the side of the road. The engine light came on. And despite my best efforts to try to drive slowly to the next car came to a dead halt. I had to call my husband and he came to retrieve me right away but it was a long wait as we live in Peachtree City and that's about an hour from where I work. It was cold. I was tired. And I have to say that the whizzing by of semi trucks by the side of my car resulted in quite a vibration of me and the car. It was rather scary. But my husband did come and rescue me. The car did not start so we had to leave the poor little thing where she was and come home and call a tow truck. Luckily we have a van and another older car that my husband drives so I'll be able to get to work to do some paperwork today and then go get my kiddos. However, I'm still trying to figure out what my cosmic lesson is in all this. I'll let you know if I get an answer.

tooting my own horn

Today is my 42nd birthday. For those who are fans of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, you know that 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. So, considering the magic of the number, I'm hoping that this will be a stellar year for me.
I've been quite deficient in blogging lately due to some health issues. I believe I am finally getting better and will be more faithful to blogging in this year of answers.
Happy Birthday to Me!
