Our car died today. Just... out of nowhere, actually. We were picking up mom's prescriptions from Target and it just wouldn't start. Thought it could possibly be the battery. Wasn't that. Had to have it towed to Sears Auto Center so they could check the starter and alternator. Wasn't either of those. Had to have it towed to yet another garage (Golden Gate Auto of Fairfield, CA; they come highly recommended from me, BTW). Turns out, it's the ignition switch.
But despite all this, i've been trying to keep a positive attitude all day. Firstly, the kiddo was great. No whining, no crying, no misbehaving whatsoever during the panicky anxiety parts of the day. That right there is terrific on a good day, but it's an absolute blessing on a bad day. Secondly, i got to ride in a tow truck for the first time. It was a lot bumpier than i would have ever expected.
Maybe it's just a silly thing to count as a positive. But really, i love new experiences. When i have an opportunity to try something i've never tried before, i like to think i'm pretty balls to the wall. Or at least, i am now that i have Master in my life. Before him, i was very timid. But since starting this relationship with him, i'm finding myself yearning for more excitement and adventure. Probably because i never had it before him. i often feel foolish because he's so much more experienced. But he always reassures me saying he'll take me on adventures. And i love him for that.
