Frustrating day - ending it with #steamwhistle

Do you ever have those days, where life just seems to get away from you? Things go wrong from the time you wake up till you go back to bed?
Well, today is like that for me. It actually started last night; I went to take Mr. K to his nursery school meet and greet, and the car wouldn't start. This is the 3rd time in 4 months - apparently the problem wasn't fixed either time I took it to be repaired.

This morning, call the garage and arrange for a tow truck. Double check that it won't start - still nothing.  Tow truck driver arrives, asks me the problem, takes the keys from me and it starts immediately.  He turned it on/off 3 or 4 times and it worked every time.......

Sure, it's great that it is working - but WHY was it NOT working? Having 2 kids with me the majority of times I am out, it's nerve racking to think that at any point it may not start.

The kids were going batty (probably picking up on my vehicle frustrations) and I realized that my house is at the point for a top-bottom cleaning - which I just don't have the energy for's on the list for next week.

The silver lining for today? Meeting up tonight with the crew from Steam Whistle for drinks and food! Looking forward to a night out with my hubby after a frustrating day.


  1. I had a similar problem with my car. Turns out it was one of the wires from the ignition through the dash to the starter motor. It was only just loose so worked most of the time.

    1. thanks for your comment - they have replaced 2 different wires thinking that may be the problem, yet it still persists :(

  2. Not having a vehicle is difficult and frustrating :(
