There are WAY too many couples that I know that have broken up (or nearly broken up). Josh and I are fine, thank goodness, but I've certainly had my share of nasty luck...
Well, read last weeks entry if you want to know some previous examples.
Last weekend I ended up returning home to pick up my car, which was supposedly repaired.
I stayed for the weekend because my grandmother passed away and her funeral was Sunday. I miss her a bunch. That weekend was pretty tough on me. I didn't want to completely lose it though. I wanted everything to seem ok because I didn't want to make things worse for my dad.
On top of that, my car acted up again on the way to the funeral.
I swapped my car with my dad's for the week so that I could get to my internship. It's been a pain in the ass trying to keep the car from getting $50 tickets for being unregistered at the school.
My intership supervisor ends up telling me that I can't start for another couple of weeks. Great, how I'm i supposed to get credit for an internship I'm not at?
I drove 2hours to meet in CT to swap the cars back, because again, supposedly the car got fixed. ...It had the SAME problem on my dad's drive there!! We are both absolutely pissed at the mechanics, and I have the unregistered car on campus for another week...
Oh, and the icing on the cake -- tonight I got the thing i was waiting for, but definitely not in the form i was hoping for. It happened AGAIN. At the EXACT same time of year, too. How fun. (sorry to be so cryptic, but I don't want everyone to know)
