What a day!

Yesterday morning started out with the normal routine. Then I put the girls in the car, turned the keys and nothing! It didn't even turn over. Great! Luckily my mom was home and she said I could borrow her car.

Well after our errand we came home and Molly told me her tummy was hurting. I laid her down on the couch with her pillow and comfy cozy blanket (that's what we call it and it's the only blanket she'll sleep with). So she watched a show for a while and then after about an hour or so she got up and said she was better. Another hour later and the same symptoms were back. She said her tummy hurt and was sweaty, but it didn't seem like a fever and no throwing up. I put her down for a nap.

She woke up a few hours later and was still feeling sick. I decided to call the nurse and they wanted to see her. To make a long story short, she got x-rays and blood work done all to find out that she had been plugged up!! Which is so funny because she is the most regular kid ever! The day before she had a pretty bad blow out after her nap so I didn't even think this could have been the problem.

Well a little miralax later and she had a messy diaper and today she's all better! Pretty crazy.

Back to the car...
We couldn't get it into neutral and couldn't jump start the car so Justin took the battery out and took it in and had it tested. It said it was still good. So he put it back in and tried again and it started. So he took it over to the transmission place while Molly and I were at the doctor's. Luckily my mom was home and watched Alison for us.

Phew! Today we are waiting to hear what they've found with the car. We aren't thinking it will be good news...probably we need a new transmission is what we'll hear :(

On a happier note, here is a little recipe for you of the EASIEST LITTLE PIZZAS EVER!!

All you do is take frozen Rhodes Rolls (or any other kind like them) and put them in the microwave for about 30 seconds to get them thawed out. Turn your oven to 400 degrees.

Then we use Ragu pizza sauce (or whatever kind you like), add some mozzarella cheese and anything else you like. Cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes and you're done! Easy, right?! They are pretty yummy if you ask me. The kids love them too!

My sister Emily and I made these ALL the time growing up. Simple and fast and we usually always had the ingredients lying around.

My batter died at my parents house, but I found out I had accidentally left the interior lights on all night. Luckily we jumped it and it was fine. But car troubles are terrible.
