I want to follow up to my post from last week The Price You Pay to Drive, because first of all… I got the car running again. After sitting in the garage for exactly one week, Humpty Dumpty was put back together again and rolling down the road.
Not only that, but last Friday I managed to also fix our dryer for less than $20. After talking with a local appliance repair shop, they diagnosed it over the phone, I took the old thermal fuse (apparently a common problem with dryers not running) in to be tested which confirmed the issue, replaced the teeny tiny 2″ part, said a quick prayer as I plugged in the dryer, and it fired right up. Hallelujah!
So the week that shall forever be known as the week of “inconvenience” in our house, was culminated with both major inconveniences being restored, our first world problems solved, and a satisfying bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
It was an amazing week of perspective for us as a family, but specifically for me in particular. So I wanted to share the insights I’ve learned through this week of inconvenience.
