Broken Car with Hidden Blessing

Mood: slightly surrenedered, tired, and still a bit congested
Listening to: 11 o'clock news
Reading: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4)
Eating: bbq turkey, dressing, carrots and broccoli - water to drink
Watching: season finale of Desperate Housewives - The Complete Second Season

Our car, the 1993 Saturn we bought back in January, is broken. Fortunately, it's in front of our home. One of the fan belts has frayed and is broken, which explains why the car got overheated so quickly and the battery light was on.

So, Jennie's got a cab ride to work tonight and probably home tomorrow morning. Her uncle is a mechanic, and he said he'd call us tomorrow morning. Hopefully he can diagnose what's best for the car, and even more hopefully, it won't cost a lot to get fixed.

Earlier today Jennie and Keisha were about to go to church, when Jennie decided to come back home, too tired to make the drive. I was in bed, still feeling ill. We see that as a blessing.
