My Pleasure

««Click to the right for the other picture for this post««

It's kind of ironic that I was taking pictures in my car/of me driving the day that my car just completely quit on me... it's kind of like I now have some sort of documentation to remind myself of what it feels like to be driving it during these next few weeks? that I won't get to drive my car.

The other night I was driving to our youth night/young people's meeting at church. It was just me and my bug. To make things more perfect, there was a nice steady drizzle coming down. I reached behind me and grabbed my camera and took pictures practically the whole way. Half of them weren't in focus because I had my lens still on manual focus... and it's kinda hard to notice things like that when you are driving. I really don't care though, I was having fun. 
I set my camera down though, when I came up to the first stop light along the way. And I noticed something funny sounding with the way my car was idling extra loud and clanky. :/ I was kind of embarrassed, but once I got the car up to speed, it sounded normal. So I thought it was maybe just a heater channel that was rattling around since we unhooked it. I was still hoping though, that I wouldn't have to slow down and stop at any other light to avoid having the whole world stare at me and my loud car. 
Ha! Well, I think I had to stop at two more agonizingly long lights, and I just sat there staring at the light... whispering for it to turn green soon!
I was probably two miles out from the turn off to our church when... well, I'm not a mechanic, but I know when to pull over. So I pulled over and called my dad on my phone that was dying. 
The long and short of it: my little car had to be towed home and my sister came to pick me up from young people's meeting.
And now? My engine has to be removed to get some loose part put back together. I have no clue really, but it doesn't sound fun.



  1. :'-( Nooo!! :( That stinks! I hate having to drive someone else's car! :) Love the documentation in your pictures though! I would totally scrapbook that.

    1. I know :''( There's just something about driving a car that is yours!!

  2. Oh no! poor little bug. But reading that post made me wish I were with you on that drizzly ride. :)

    1. Ah! I wish I could insure that it would be fixed before you came out, so I could take you around in it... But alas, we have so much to do between now and then that I'm not really sure :/
