My Proudest Moment This Week....


I am my father's daughter afterall! I don't really like 'car' mechanical things...it's one of those things....sure, I can probably do a lot more than I DO do, but I don't like to do these sort of things....so I don't. My dad liked to work with cars (trucks, boats, bikes....whatever), my brother likes to work with wood, and I like to work with fabric, papers, and baubles. We all like(d) to look at things and figure out how they work, and then...work with them, but....it's different materials. Today, I reached down deep, and I found my Dad's DNA....and I fixed something on my car. I'm generally frugal...except when it comes to cars. I called the dealership and they said they would charge me $15 for this repair, so I mulled it over for a week, and today....I went in and bought some lights ($4.32), and decided to attempt it 'on my own.' OK, whatever-it's two little bulbs that go over the license plate, but....I figured it out! I even had to go back in for a 'different' screw driver. Just for the record-all my tools are hot pink, and they fit compactly into a hot pink tool kit, but....they work. I was so proud because I did something I didn't want to do, and the lights fit in, the screws all went back into place.....I don't know if they work, but lets say they do.
