My car stalled on me last week – I got it back from the shop and then went to pick up my daughter from school, where it promptly died again. It was towed back again (they still have it). At first I was a little upset and felt trapped at home. But my kids and I had a great weekend without it. We walked to the store, we watched California (beach) movies and cooked at home. Sometimes what you think is the worst…your kids see as the best.
