Radiator Springs

Yup. I have a new radiator after my car overheated today for the second time. It was pretty obvious something was busted; there was greenish coolant residue all over the radiator and nearby (unknown-to-me) engine parts. I spent pretty much my whole day dealing with it instead of working. Boo.

The bright side of today is the following:

1. It was car trouble in which nobody got hurt
2. Car is now fine; radiator is replaced
3. I didn’t have to deal with my children while I was dealing with the car trouble, waiting for the tow truck, talking with the mechanic, etc., because others were caring for them; they were safe and having fun with friends
4. I was able to pay cash for the repair; $400
5. I put the tow truck on credit, but will pay it off this month
6. Ian came to get me so I didn’t have to wait at the repair shop all day
7. I got to have lunch with my husband and the food was yummy.
