    Well.. tonight has been pretty eventfull... while on our way to Bigs uncles to help with a ceiling job, the tire on his Pathfinder decided it would be a good idea to go flat.. no big deal right? Right... until! The locking lug nut decides to break off... without loosening up at all.. so after a guy stops to help.. nothing.. then about 45 minutes later a construction truck helped and got a big chunk off but we then figured out there is still stuff IN it.. we tried drilling it out.. no luck.. everyone kept throwing around the joke of using a torch.. I thought it was a good idea but obviously not... sooooo after we filled the tire up three times, and put in some plugs.. we r now at Bigs grandparents house trying to fix it.. what a night... should have stayed home. Better now then tomorrow on his way to work I guess.

    In the old days when you had any kind of car trouble you either fixed it or someone would come along that could help you fix it. Not so much anymore. Love the 21st century and hate it at the same time. Merry Christmas.

    I wore crocs and capris because I thought wr were gonna be inside.. bad idea.. my toes got so numb..

    That's what I kept tellin Big.. merry christmas hun. Ohhhh it was frustrating seeing everyone just drive by. We need signs to keep in the car saying "will you help please?" But the guy that stopped last was SO helpful.. we tried to pay him for helping but he refused it.. the first guy tried to be helpful.. and I'm grateful for his help but ughhh..

    Too bad you don't have a beer, a blanket, and a lawn chair!

    Hope you get it fixed soon.
