I do not need this right now.
Ive been driving my husband's truck all weekend to work because he has remote start and it's been really cold. Sunday night I went to put gas in it before heading home and as soon as I pulled into the parking lot at my apartment building, the battery gauge on the dash maxed out and the battery light came on. The truck then died. Luckily I was able to roll into it into a parking space before it completely died.
The next day I called road side assistance to have it towed over to my mechanic.
I was freaking out the entire time because that meant Hubster had to take my truck to work since he worked over a hour away and I had to get the truck fixed. So I was trying to get it fixed fast and oh, did I mention,
This happened during finals!!!!!!!!!!!
Cosmo was not amused while waiting for the tow truck.
Talk about majorly stressed. I ended up spending the night at my brother-in-law's house because I was able to use one of their vehicles. I went to my final and went back to my brother-in-law's house. The mechanic finally called me around 9 pm saying that my alternator blew and needed replaced as well as a bunch of electrical wires and gauges. $270 later and I had my truck back. I followed my sister-in-law home because she took me over to get my truck and when I was four blocks away from her house, my truck lost complete power....AGAIN!!!!!
Are you fucking kidding me!
I called my mechanic...again and told him what happened, so I had to call road side assistance...again and have it towed back. Thank goodness it's free!!
It turned out the alternator spiked for some reason and after resetting a bunch of crap, my truck is now in working order....another $80 down the hole.
So of course it's been one stressed out couple of weeks for me and dealing with auto shit. Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm still aground, but finals are next week so I've been crazy busy!!
So far I'm doing really well in my classes and I'm trying to keep it that way so wish me luck!
My math exam is Tuesday at 7 am which blows because my brain doesn't comprehend anything that early.
Anatomy and Physiology 1 is on Wednesday at 8 am.
Lastly, Lifespan Psychology is Thursday at 9.
I'm so nervous. Wish me luck!!!
For my new followers, Poppy was the greatest man next to my grandpa. Poppy is my husband's grandpa. I actually met Poppy before my husband and he always tried to set me up with Aaron before. He insisted that all people call him Poppy and was there for everyone. Before leaving Alaska, I spent many years caring for Poppy and Aaron's grandma. I did their shopping, picked up their medicine, took them to their appointments and helped around the house. It was really hard to leave both Poppy and Aaron's grandma when we moved to Minnesota.
This morning, Poppy went peacefully in his sleep to be with his wife. I got the phone call at 2pm MN time, 11am AK time.
He's going to be extremely missed and we are all saddened.
We love you and will miss you greatly.

The smell of my Grampa's house. If I could bottle that up and spray it in my apartment, I would. It's the smell of home and it's comforting.

My summer solstice hoodie I got in Alaska when I went to the Summer Solstice party downtown to celebrate the longest day of sunlight. That was good times.
