Ok. I'm feeling better. It seems like just when I finish with the morning sickness (which happens to be evening sickness for me), I get a nasty cold that goes from sinus to chest to throat. I think I'm on the mend.

Ok, so about the car. On Wednesday I took my husband to work and then went to the stranded car to call AAA and get it towed. When it arrived at the repair shop, I told the guy what I thought was wrong and then while it was there I had them check out a couple of other things that I knew needed to be checked. We've always had a problem with our engine coolant light coming on and in the summertime, on super hot days, the car overheats. Also, the brake light never seemed to go off when we released the parking break. I thought they would be minor fixes, but it turns out that something was wrong with the breaks, the coolant sensor was broken, and, I happened to be right, and the shifter cable was broken. So all three repairs together is costing me $860.31. Lovely. But I like to think that by the car actually breaking and causing us to have to take it in to the shop, resulted in money and possibly lives saved should the brakes have failed on my husband or me one day. So it's all good. I'm not complaining. Cars are miserable. It's just a fact of life. I think it is still better than dealing with horse and buggies.

Last night I took Emily to her Achievement Days at church which is the 8-11 year old girls that get together twice a month to do fun and spiritual stuff. Last night the leader just had an improvised plan and brought some games for the girls to play. I asked her if she needed help and she invited me to come and play. We played Uno, Twister, and Da Vinci's Challenge. When we were leaving Emily was kind of quiet. I asked her if it was weird for her for me to be there. She nodded her head, but I could tell she didn't want to hurt my feelings. I guess she likes that time to go hang out and be silly with her friends without her mother around. I totally understand. I just hope I don't get called to be the Achievement Day Leader ever. She would be so disappointed!

I guess that's all for now. Today was uneventful. We attempted some more cleaning. Hopefully the car will be ready tomorrow.
