Positivityolutely vs. Suckidyduckidy

Or as Mouse would list it, the Good, Bad and Ugly. I'll steal her format.

Good: Went to my mothers this weekend for a relaxing weekend
Bad: It stormed, we stayed an extra day and I missed work Monday
Ugly: On my way out of town the car broke down via catalatic converter and wire issues via fire under the hood

Good: The fire did go out on its own
Bad: The RCMP drove us back to Mom's
Ugly: The girls and I running down the road and me freaking out

Good: Mom loaned me her van so I could get to/from work and took care of the car
Bad: Mom's van is a gas guzzler
Ugly: I live several km's from work highway in what I affectionately refer to as commuterville

Good: The car was easily fixed and for ONLY $160
Bad: There are more storms this week and weekend so I don't know when I can get it back
Ugly: I just spent $700 on safety inspection last Friday

Good: I got in one good exercise session on Saturday while I was at Mom's
Bad: I wasn't up to doing anything else and haven't worked out since
Ugly: My food hasn't been stellar either

Good: I took the kids to a wildlife sanctuary for a wonderful winter walk
Bad: We walked too far and they both got tired. I piggy-backed the 4yo and carried the 9yo's jacket for the last leg
Ugly: I think the rough road on the way to the sanctuary is what knocked the wires that caused the car problems

At least there was some good to counteract the bad and ugly. I hope you get your car back soon and that you can get back on track. I think you can count the piggyback walk back as somthing. Carrying a 4yo is work!
