In which I am lacking in the life department

Fo realz, yo.

Not much is going on. I'll have the boy this coming Friday night cuzz the ex-husband has to work Saturday, but other than that, nothing has changed. He told his mom to keep him all this weekend cuzz he had another race in the Pinewood Derby. (I can't remember if it was districts or regionals or what, but it was the 2nd Derby and it was in a different city.) Anyway, I have a strong feeling that his not seeing the boy all weekend is going to be a topic of discussion when I ask him, again, if he's willing to go every other weekend with me. We'll see how that goes.

I've recently been talking to someone I never thought I'd speak with again. When I first started this blog, it was to vent about the guy I was seeing at the time in a place where I wouldn't have to worry about my friends getting protective and telling me what an ass they thought he was. He may have been, but I don't feel like I ever got a chance to find that out due to the way things went down between him and my friends. At any rate, he contacted me a few weeks ago on facebook. It was incredibly unexpected, especially with the way things ended with us. We'll see how this goes. Hopefully I'll wind up with a good friend out of it.

So... That was all written at work. I just got home about half an hour ago. I should have been home before 8, but my car decided to take a shit. I didn't even get out of the parking lot. Heh. I'm glad it happened there, though, instead of on the street somewhere. It appears to be some main air intake valve sensor or something. One of the guys I work with is gonna try to bring up some kind of diagnostic box to make sure. If that's really what it is, I'll be able to give him the money for the part and he'll be able to fix my car for me tomorrow. I really hope that's what it is. I'll be out about $100, but if it's the entire part that the sensor is for, I'll be out even more money and I don't have more money. Now I just gotta make sure that they don't tow my car tomorrow for not being in the "employee" parking lot, which is down behind the hospital. I refuse to park back there cuzz it's not patrolled at all. My car has already been broken into being parked where I am right now, so I can only imagine what might happen to it in the back. And besides that, I'm at work before the sun comes up and I leave after the sun goes down. They lock the back door after 5, so if something were to happen to me back there, I'd have no where to run. They've said to get a security guard to escort me out to my car, but 1- you can never find them and 2- I can take most, if not all, of them, so what good would that do me? LOL

And that's it. That's the excitement I live with. I know you're all jealous of my rockstar life.

Congrats on the Pinewood Derby success! Too bad dad's not around to experience it.

I hope your car is a cheap fix, as in a cheap date. Pour a little money on it and you get lucky.

My life is equally dull. Drab, even.
