Saturday was a normal lazy day of sleeping in, cleaning the condo, reading and watching t.v. The boy and I had a friend's baby shower to go to that evening so we bought cupcakes and cute Easter presents for their baby girl Ella and set off in our car. Now our car is a '97 Mazda that may have been pretty in her heyday but she is now a clunker named Bertha who is constantly overheating and sounds like there's a bird in her engine. Last time we took her in, the mechanic told us that she is unsafe to drive as the steering may go at any time or the engine may overheat and die. So 7 weeks ago the boy spoiled himself and bought the new Audi A-4 fully loaded (don't know what that means but it sounds fancy!) The only problem was that the car he wanted wasn't available in Canada so they had to make us a new car in Germany. Long story short, the Audi hasn't arrived yet so we had to drive Bertha to the baby shower. Low and behold as soon as we are on the highway the dashboard lights start blinking on and off and I started freaking out thinking we are going to combust. As soon as we got to our exit, the car died and a suited man in a Lexus helped the boy push her to the side of the road while I steered. We waited in the freezing cold (no heat, with me wearing flats with no socks) for about an hour for the tow. All this to say my Saturday night was spent waiting for a tow instead of enjoying a potluck dinner playing with a cute baby :(

Let's just say that I will be taking the stairs from now on, staying healthy and avoiding elevator related deaths at the same time!

If you read that whole post- kudos! If not I'll sum it up for you in four words: broken car and stuck elevator!
