My sixth car just broke down while we were on the expressway Thursday night. The timing belt snapped and my gas and break peddles wouldn't work. At around 11 pm. So that was really scary and not fun.

I have never had a car for an entire year. They have either broken so bad that it's not worth fixing or t hey've been totalled. Most of them have been really good cars, too! That I took really good care of! I seriously have the worst luck and I have no money and bad credit so YAY. I also live in an area with poor public transportation and I work about 20 miles away from home.

The good news is that my dad has finally retired! He's super lucky to be able to retire at 46 with an awesome pension and benefits. He's not going to completely retire, but he seems excited. Tomorrow we're throwing him a surprise retirement party and he's not expecting it at all. I spoke to him the other day and asked when they were going to be having his retirement party and he said basically he didn't know because him and my step mom have a lot of stuff going on the next couple weeks and then she's having surgery and they don't know how her recovery will be and blah blah blah. I'm so excited to see his reaction.

Also, we lost power last night and a little over 24 hours later we got it back on and I am so excited about it. It was really rough, you guys!
