I am not a princess
I am a girl
very wise words from my three year old when asked to dress up in this princess tiara
I have had three car incidents recently! My husband car died on him last week. Apparently a fuse has blown in the car and it can’t be moved. Who knew that cars had fuses! So now I have to drive him about until he gets the car fixed and being the ‘manly’ man that he is… he is expecting to fix the car himself and no he is not a mechanic, has no training as a mechanic, just loves cars! Hmmm. Anyway so 10 days later I am still chauffeur, if I was on a sitcom I am sure I would have found some cute way to persuade him to call a mechanic already. But no cigar!
Three days after his car dies, I found myself spending a morning at the shop, because my car was overheating apparently a pipe attached to the engine had a hole! Hmmm!
And then being the sometimes lousy driver that I am.. Somehow I drove too close to the sidewalk on the way to dropping the children to school and busted… I mean obliterated my tyre and rim for that matter! Scarlett O’Hara has nothing on me when it comes to being like a Southern Belle. Honestly, if the ground wasn’t so hard or if I had a strong pair of arms around I probably would have swooned with the distress!! I am really dismayed by my girlieness sometimes. I like to think of myself as this Strong, Independent can handle any situation kinda of woman and all I can do is freak when I blow out a tyre!! Especially since I could find no one to help via phone! Even though I know my husband was without car I rang every number that he has (3) all to no avail! Luckily, I thought I was stranded by a gym. There must be some one male to help me. Sure! the gym was crammed with WOMEN.. who all looked at me, with my children in tow, and responded to my flat tyre story with "Oh so you need to make a call!" Fortunately, the owner of the gym was there and he helped me with my tyre. Hey at least I knew where they keep the spare and the device they use to raise the car up. I was exhausted after looking at this guy fix my tyre! God I pray that I am never stranded on a deserted road with a flat tyre, because honestly I will not be able to fix it. POUT!!
