Men Fix Their Own Cars…

Ok so my last post was telling you what was going wrong with my car and what I did through out the weekend. This one is going to tell you how God just blessed me today by helping me fix my car by myself. So at the beginning of this week I still have no taillights or brake lights at night. It is getting really frustrating cause people keep yelling at me and honking at me and I can’t drive at night right. Well Yesterday which was Wed. the 6th I decided too look online to see if any other Jeeps where having the same problem. Well to my surprise there were a lot. Jeep probably should recall a lot of jeeps to fix cause they are all having the same problem. But back to my story. I was just about to give up when I saw one more page that I could read and it was a question and answer page. So decided to read it. Well the guy had the same kind of JGC I had with the same problems and under was some random guy that answered him. He said he had the same issues and fixed it buy doing this and that. I looked at it for a sec and was wondering if it would actually work on my car. So I decided to be a mechanic and try ha ha. It worked! It took me about 2 hours to do with all the wiring and Grounding and stuff but I fixed my car with God’s help cause i am no mechanic. Now my Taillights and Brake lights work better than before.  So yes I was feeling like a manly man at that moment.

That part of my day made everything else go great. But to top it all off I met up with a friend I just found out that was out here and she took me to a apt building and we went to the roof to grill out with her friends. you could see all of Downtown LA it was so much fun! I met a lot of cool people there too. there was this one guy that he and I came up with this incredible idea for a shop, but I can’t tell you cause you wil want to steal it cause it is BRILLIANT!!!!

Where to Begin?…

Ok so this past weekend actually was pretty awesome. I got to Azusa, CA on Friday night trying to figure out what I was going to do then finally decided to rent a movie. But I got a call from my friend Sarah and they wanted me to come eat with them at Cocos so of course I will come eat, I mean how can I pass up food right. So needless to say it was a fun time eating with Sarah her mom and Bethany or so called (BF) from Sarah. Well after we eat they head to some Book extravaganza where they are releasing a new book and I go home to watch my movie.

Something I need to tell you before the next part is, I have been having trouble for about a year with my car. You see my taillights and brake lights were going out a lot and I kept getting pulled over because I would be missing one or the other side, you know what I mean. Well about 2 weeks ago this weird electrical problem started to take over my car right and now I would have Taillights as brake lights during the day (which are dim) and at night when I turned on my lights I would loose both Taillights and brake lights so I had nothing on my back of my car.

Ok so after you knowing that I am driving home and every person that drives by me both ways was waving at me yelling at me and honking that I don’t have lights. Of course I know this that is why I try not to drive at night. Well after watching my movie (Vantage Point) that night I try to get rest and plan on trying to take it in the next day to get fixed. So the next morning rolls around and I have band practice but afterward I take my car to a couple different places to see if they could tell me what is wrong, and guess what NOTHING. They were all like you have to take it to a dealer and leave it with them. Of course I am out here in CA and I have no time to take my car and leave it. So I decide just to wait and pray right. But after all the excitement of trying to fix my car which i didn’t, I went out by the pool and chilled there for the rest of the afternoon, WHICH WAS AMAZING!!!!! Sarah and I had a new friend come over to hang with us (Lauren), She was really cool and liked to have fun.

That evening we went over to Jake’s house (Bethany’s BF) and watched 21 and ate Cookies (MY FAVORITE) It was a nice relaxing evening and then after we got home I went out with a friend to chill and it became a late night before I knew it.

i know this is getting really long but hey your the one reading it. So Sunday rolled around and I was pretty tired but you know what, the sermon that the Pastor preached was just what I needed to hear. You see there had been some stuff in my life that I needed to confess but I hadn’t and that is kind of what he preached on. So yes i confessed them On Sunday and now I feel so much better. It is hard for us as humans not to dwell on our pasts, and wonder how God doesn’t do the same. But I can assure you He does not. He forgives and Forgets!

Sunday afternoon was one of just sitting at Sarah’s house just resting and watching the Incredibles! So yeah it was nice then I had to drive back home to my place. So yeah that is the weekend and I will post another post about the past two days…..

Barely Making it Off the Interstate…

Wow, ok so I haven’t had a really stressful day in a long time, actually I don’t get stressed a lot at all I usually get more focused. But today is in the running of kind of a stressful day. So I get up this morning like I always do and take my shower get ready for work get in my car start driving right?…. Well about half way to work (about a 25 min drive to work) I realize my car (actually my brothers car) is acting kind of funny. I look at the gages and the battery gage is all the way down and the next thing I know BOOM, all of the electronics shut off. But the car is still running praise God. I get over into the right lane just in case the rest of the car decides to shut down but it ran ok cause I kept it reved up! Well I get off my exit just waiting for my car to die but it doesn’t it allows me to get a mile away from work when bla buh bluh bluh eeewwwwwwwwwww (that is a car dying soung) so I coast into a parking lot and do the whole calling AAA thing and to get it toed and calling my boss telling them I would be late. Needless to say I finally got it toed and actually got it worked on today. It did cost my whole pay check for the week but at least i have a car now. If I would have gone to a main dealership I probably would have had to sell my right arm or something to pay for it.

 

A nice thing that did happen today was my boss was nice enough to come pick me up. I was already behind on work and had more work given to me when I arrived so needless to say I am still working and it is 7 tonight. I am waiting on some drives to finish up and then I need to make some DVD’s but I might have to wait till tomorrow cause my eyes are getting really tiered of looking at the computer screens.

Not sure what I will do tonight… I might just go eat at Fridays where my friend works, well I might not really eat but I will go socialize with him, then go home and eat some cereal and go to bed. that would be nice Bed YES I think I might try to do that but who is to say I will actually do it, probably will find somethig else to distract me. I just pray that tomorrow will not be as crazy for me as today…
