Whiny Wednesday came early this week

This morning my car wouldn't start.
I'm not gonna lie to you... I panicked. I'm on the edge... there just aren't resources for things like that.
The happy news is that my brother came by and was able to get it started... the ignition was locked up. It's happened before but this time I couldn't get it to budge. It was random but... we dodged a bullet.
I was late for work, though, which stunk.
I had a lot of stuff leftover from yesterday to finish up and I didn't need to be late.
I sucked it up, though and got through it.
It felt like Monday all over again.
Because I was late, I took a short lunch... so I didn't have time to catch my breath.
The day was busy.
I was tired when I got home.
And when I got home... I found my broken straightening iron... the one I just bought a few weeks ago....that I stinking can't afford to replace right now. The cats knocked it off the counter.
I don't want to be rich. I just want to have enough of a financial cushion that a car that doesn't start and a broken straightening iron aren't such a big deal.
I was super proud of myself this morning, though. I didn't stress eat. I ate broccoli for breakfast.
For dinner I had this really good (cheap) soup that I found. It's sort of a high class ramen... it's from Thai Kitchen... rice noodles (not fried) and different thai spices. It was light and warm.
It's cold tonight.
Blackberry winter, that's what everyone keeps saying.
Time for 19 Kids and Counting. I love the Duggars.
No more whining.
Love and hugs, y'all.
