Money Tires & Pizza

What a month...

Okay at the first of this month I was coming home on the freeway from recording a "Thank you blurb" at the 91.7ZHT radio station. My 4-H Kids won the seasons of service for July and we got a free pizza party from Little Ceasars. Well on the way home I got a flat tire, Gwampa Mike came and rescued me. THANKS DADDY!

So on the 10th we went to Les Scwhab to get a new one and much to our surprise (not really) we needed not 1 or 2 but 4 new tires and new brakes! So after just paying off all cc debt we had to dive back in. Some cash later we are doing good, riding smooth and having a good time. We put alot of miles on them as we went to Powell and numerous trips to Lehi.

Well this morning, the day of the actual Pizza Party, Jim was on his way to work and noticed my tire was flat. He got out and changed the tire for me, but noticed that someone had slashed it with a knife! How mean huh :( He was mad, so was I, but then we said, I guess it's good they didn't do all 4. Police took their report and he went to work.

So today after the pizza party, which was a good turn out and lots of fun I went back to Les Schwab to get a new tire. My kids love it there because they have this virtual wheels machine that you can select any type of car and chance it's wheels, tires, suspension and color. So Jo was entertained for a long time! I am afraid we have a computer nerd on our hands. :) As we were sitting and waiting I decided to pull out my camera and video tape their jibber jabber. It's long but kinda funny. 

So now, 1 more new tire and 100 bucks poorer we are cruisin free once again! Moral of this story... When you are going to do anything that has to do with FREE PIZZA don't; stay home and keep your cars in the garage hehe! (would help if you had a garage first)

So sorry about the tire trouble. I am awful with tires as well. I get flats all the time. My husband says I must drive in the gutters and I hit every nail out there! I promise we will get together after I have Jocelyn. I would just much rather you see her than my big beach ball belly!
