Give me a Brake...and some rotors too!

I needed a day (or so...) to get the pissiness (not really a word) out of me before writing, but as it stands we will be staying here for Christmas.

(Honk. Honk. Pass the tissue.)

Why you ask?

Because Santa isn't an auto mechanic, but I am. Well, technically I'm not either, but I decided to help my husband change out the rotors and brake pads instead of pouting...
Not to say I won't later.

See that shiny silver thing? It's a rotor. Rotors are not cheap!

I'm glad it wasn't cold....Oh Wait...YES it was, but
I'm glad it wasn't snowing....Oh Wait.....YES it was.

Mostly, I'm glad it is over. Merry Christmas to us....
I know, we are healthy, safe and happy but it would have been fun to be all of those things with our families. I'll get over it, just give me a few more days.

Be honest, would have used the money to get new brakes or
would you have rented a car to go home for the holidays?

H and I are laughing our heads off at you changing your rotors. Another notch in your belt kiddo.

You are so cute! I'd have rented a car & gone home ... honestly, I would've.

May your celebration be joyous ...
Merry Christmas,

Well, I didn't know what a brake or rotor looked like so wow. That's a tough one though....home for Christmas or new brakes. You made the right practical choice. :-)
