And "stay at home" it was.
We have two vehicles. We used our tax money to purchase a truck because my husband will have to furnish his own truck for this new job. We also have an old Saturn that was my father's. It hasn't been operational since last fall. When it appeared that he was going to get hired, my husband went out to work on the Saturn and it started right up. It started up several times over a week. We figured it was working.
But it wasn't.
So, I was stuck at home yesterday. Couldn't take the kids to school. The teenager took the bus today because I called yesterday to set it all up but I still can't get the preschooler to school. The husband thinks it's a bad starter but he won't be able to fix it until Sunday when he's off.
So, I've become Little Suzy Homemaker. Cooking, cleaning, taking care of the kids. Bit of a shift considering I used to be the breadwinner.
