Happy girls are the prettiest.
My car and I have been in a fight all week. From the dreaded oil change experience to a recent flat tire on the interstate, it’s been a rough week.
After wrapping up our Christmas celebration in Kansas City, Chris headed back with his parents, while I stayed behind to spend time with my friends. Just as I was exiting the interstate, I heard the most dreaded sound, that signaled there was a major problem. In the small amount of time I had, I was able to pull over to a tight shoulder. It was right by a really creepy forest in nowhere land Kansas City.
I (so clueless about anything vehicle related) had no idea what to do. Hum…I checked to see if I had room to attempt a tire change. No dice. Okay, I knew I needed to call someone who wasn’t problem-solving challenged. It was a good decision. I called my friend Penny and she gave me the number to my insurance company’s hotline. One would think it would be listed on their insurance card, but it wasn’t.
Thank you State Farm for sending someone to my rescue!
Being the freak that I am, I sat in my car without it running, in hopes that people would think it was an abandoned vehicle until help showed up. Not the smartest thing to do, with it being winter and all. On the positive side, I wasn’t starving or anything since I was still full on goodies. Amazing goodies by the way.

1 package Oreo cookies, crushed
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

5. Dip balls into chocolate until completely covered.
6. Place on wax paper and allow to harden.
Besides my travel troubles, Christmas was a success. I have lots of wonderful memories of smiling children.
Being with the family was the best gift of all. As time goes on, people get busy and it is harder and harder to spend time with the ones you love. I am so thankful that Chris and I got to enjoy our families company this year. Here is a shot of Chris’ grandmother with all of her boys:
It’s sad that the celebrations have come to an end, but I was ready to get on the road and get moving, with my new tire of course! Hoping that my love/hate relationship with my car will be more loving down the road.
Have you ever gotten a flat tire?
