In case you live in Utah and were busy enjoying all the festivities yesterday, here is a link to yesterday’s post, dedicated to Pioneer Day!
So yesterday I’m driving to work and the “Check Engine” light keeps turning on and off on my dashboard. I’ve never had that light turn on before and since it was going on and off, I figured maybe it was just a short in the circuit. I mean, my car is a 1994. I have a window that won’t roll up or down anymore. It’s totally plausible I would have a short in the lights on the dash. So there I am, driving and minding my own business, when I pull of the freeway, stop at a red light and all of this steam starts coming out of my hood and even coming through my vents into my car.
What?!! This is something that I’ve only seen in movies or something. Not something that’s happened to me. So I called my dad (they’re great for handling these kinds of situations) and once I got to my work just a few blocks later, he had me open my hood and tell him where the steam/smoke was coming from. My radiator. So after work, a tow truck came to get my car and we took it to a shop. I should hear today what the exact problem is. Hopefully it doesn’t involve too much $$$. Luckily my little sister just bought a car for college, so I get to drive that little clunker to work. Crossing my fingers that it doesn’t die on me, too!
Last night my family and I went to the local celebration at the park. It ended up being more fun than I thought it would be. At one point, we saw these people up at the top of one of those fire truck lifts and all of a sudden they dropped watermelon from there! My mom and I were standing a little close since we were trying to see what was going on and we both got hit with flying watermelon pieces! It’s crazy how far those things can fly!
We listened to a couple different bands and then watched the fireworks. Fireworks are my favorite, so I love having another holiday where we get to watch them. It’s the best.
In other news, if you know anything about me, you know that I take my birthday very, very seriously. It’s the best day of the year. Not just my birthday, but all birthdays. I just love birthdays. But obviously mine is my favorite. Anyway, today is my half birthday! Woohoo! In just 6 little months will be my golden birthday (when you turn the age of your birthday. So I’ll be 25 on the 25th). This calls for a big celebration! Good thing I have 6 months to figure out something awesome to do 😉 For today, I think I’ll just celebrate with some froyo.
Well, I have a busy day so I better get started. Have a great Thursday everyone! The weekend is almost here!!!
Have you had a car break down? What was wrong?
Are you obsessed with birthdays too?
Have you had your Golden Birthday yet? Did you/will you celebrate big?
