All For You by Janet Jackson

Do I have a story for you. Yesterday, a friend and I drove up to our new apartment with my husband's Chevy Blazer full of stuff. This friend is also moving there from Lewisburg and I am very excited to have her there with me! It takes about 4 and a half hours to drive there, and our plan was to drive there and back in one day... so drive up, empty the car into the apartment and unpack it a bit, get the water turned on, have dinner and head back. Everything was going just as planned... till I started hearing a clicking noise coming from the back. We pulled over and checked all the tires... and found something stuck into the back left tire. It looked like it was in the tread and could be pulled out, so we drove across the street to a gas station to ask for a tool to do so. Luckily we saw a man with a tow truck, so we asked if he could help us. The man came over and was able to pull the screw out, which was so far into the tire that it popped and was letting out lots of air. He had rubber cement to plug it, made a phone call, and had an appointment for us to go to a tire shop and have the guy there fix it up for us. After thanking him, we carefully drove to the tire shop. The tire guy was very friendly and courteous and patched up the tire, and an hour later we finally got back on the road. We didn't get home till 2am, but we felt much safer. We thought we'd need a new tire which we couldn't get till the next day and thought we'd stay in the apartment overnight, but my hubby needed the car today to drive to Cleveland. If we hadn't pulled over, we wouldn't know the screw was in there and it could have gone in further and popped the tire while we were on the highway... somebody was watching out for us yesterday. :)

Here's the screw in the tire...

I have no idea where it came from, but it was pretty far in the tire.

Anyway, here's today's outfit:
