December Daily-The Seventh
This morning, the battery was dead on the car. I shook my fist at the sky and called in the reinforcements (aka my Uncle) who came over with his battery charger and charged the battery since the car was in the garage.
Then, we called around until we found a place that would install the battery and instead of spending the whole day sitting on the couch and watching Christmas movies, we got to spend part of our day having a new battery installed.
But, the girls were good. They shared the iPod and we played Hangman until the car was ready and we drove home and I was thankful. Thankful, that it was a minor repair, that we hadn’t been stranded any place and that my Uncle was able to come over and help us get back on the road, quickly. I was thankful we wouldn’t have to wait for three hours (the guy ahead of us did) and that the girls waited patiently in the little room.
We stopped on the way home and bought bubble bath and tv dinners and finally snuggled up on the couch. I’d been waiting all day.
Our box of Christmas books has been brought down to go back onto the shelves and Littlebit has been reading through them. I love that she loves to read so much.
Lastly, I took some time out to repair our angel. She’s very special to us as she’s topped our tree for every year of the Princess’s life. Last year, her lights burnt out after 13 years of use and we paced her up and forgot. I bought a new strand of lights for her, today, and carefully unhooked her old lights and then reattached the new ones.
Hopefully, she’ll be good for thirteen more years.
Watching Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever We are fans of Tarter Sauce and I expected this movie to be pretty awful, but it knew it was campy, so it made fun of itself and we ended up liking it.
