... when last we saw our intrepid heroine, she was... ah, hell, I’m too tired to be cute. Faire closed 4 1/2 hours ago and I got home 1/2 an hour ago. Reason? P.O.S. car died while Other-Husband was halfway to picking me up. At least it’s never dull around here!

Long story short, we have a small car and a big car. Small car just had belt, battery, and alternator replaced 2 days ago. Small car died just off the major highway as Other-Husband was on his way to get me. Other-Husband called Husband to drive the big car out, collect him, and go get me. On the way home, we stopped for fuel (gas for the big car and food for us!), and then stopped to see if we could get the small car running. Jumped the car, got it going, Husband got about 4 or 5 miles down the road, and it died again. This happened 4 times over about 20 miles (I’m pretty sure we got a poorly rebuilt alternator). On the last stretch, H basically coasted the car into our parking spot at home, got out and did a happy dance.

My biggest plans right now include food, shower, and bed. And I get to get up at 7am and go do it again (hopefully, minus the car issues)!
