I'm not a big fan of trials. It is said that trials make us stronger. That when given trials, we are only given what we can handle. These are supposed to be reassuring.
I'm sorry, but I just don't think I'm strong enough. And are we really sure I can handle them??? Really???? Somebody must have a lot of confidence in me.
And I don't know about YOU, but it seems to me that trials come in clumps. Yep, clumps.
One trial as of late is that the air conditionar broke in my car. Why is this a big deal, some of you may ponder? I mean c'mon, it's Fall! Then it's Winter, and then it's Spring. Yes, I did most obviously just point out the seasons. While these seasons are fairly cool to most of you and hence the air conditionar is not vital until Summer, that is not so down here in this wonderful ghetto little island in the Gulf of Mexico. It is still HOT here people. Okay it's not as hot as it was a few weeks ago, but a working AC is still very important. It is so humid down here that even in DECEMBER you still need to have the AC.
I had to take a bunch of people to the Relief Society Broadcast at the Stake Center, which is an hour away, and by the time we got there, we were all sweaty. I had to put my hair in a pony tail, which is a bummer because I actually styled it that day. We were all red in the face and parched. Really. And that was in the evening!
So now I need to get that fixed. And we have no money. F.U.N. Not to mention we don't know what auto repair shop to go to, who is honest and reliable.
Oh yeah, and now Bo's car is having problems starting. Just another to add to the clump of trials.
I am so ready to get a new car. If only we could find a way to finance it.
