I'll never forget Mother's Day 2012. I had noticed my van jumping along the highway for weeks, but I had no idea why. Our gas guzzler started gulping gas like never before, despite scheduled oil changes and routine maintenance.
The day before Mother's Day, I was doing my normal thing; you know, taking the kids to the park, going grocery shopping, running here and there and everywhere. When we got home, I dropped something and had to crawl just under the car to retrieve it. While under there, I noticed a piece of metal sticking out of our tire.
What the heck?
I didn't know where I had picked that up so I touched it (not smart, it was extremely hot), and realized that it was part of the tire.
I immediately called a tire store to have my tires changed the next day, Mother's Day. I couldn't believe they were going to be open! The Workaholic went to work and I took the kids to have the tires changed. I still think it's a miracle that we made it there without one of the tires blowing.
Luckily, we only needed two new tires, but I was smart about it and purchased the best tire I could get for my money.
I'm so grateful I dropped whatever it is that I dropped that day because when The Workaholic got off of work, we headed to North Carolina to look for a house to rent in what would soon be our new locale.
Now, when I have my oil changed, I make our mechanic check our tires because I don't want to test my luck like that ever, ever again.
While my daily drive might not be extraordinary, other than the fact that my children are my not-always-so-precious-cargo, your daily drive might be special or fascinating.
Check out this quick video of an Ostrich farmer. HIS daily drive is extraordinary. Hey, did you know that Ostriches are the closest thing to a dinosaur livin on the Earth today? I didn't either. I thought it was cockroaches *shudder*
