Thursday...

Yesterday, I ran a few errands during lunch... Then I stopped by the house for a second... When I got back in the car and started it, I heard a horrible noise under the hood. I thought something must have crawled in the engine and was sitting in the fan... Nope... My serpentine belt decided to come apart. Thank God it happened in my driveway! What better place to get stranded... I did learn that it is surprisingly easy to change the belt out on a Saturn.... They added a hole on the tortioner that a 3/8" ratchet fits right in... Just turn it and it releases the tension on the belt... So... My car was out of commision for a few hours, but I got it fixed without even a busted knuckle! Woohooo! On another note... I know you all wonder what would have happened if Iron Maiden had never come up with Eddie- but instead used Sponge Bob as their mascot.... And one last thing... They need to make more cars like this one... I hope everybody is having a great week!

What fun is fixing your car if you dont bruise a few knuckles or bust a finger? What is this world coming too!!!!!!
