Car ownership comes with LOTS of ups and downs. And S learned the FIRST day of ownership about some of the downs. Yesterday, we were up bright and early to take a roadtrip in my new car. As we were leaving S noticed that HIS car had a flat. Yep. On Friday, I gave him my car after I got a new car. Everyone was excited...until Saturday morning when he had a flat. We decided to leave until Sunday when we were back to fix it.
Sunday morning..Got up bright and early to take the S-car to get the tire fixed. (Yes...mom fixed it for him.) I didn't put the spare on because that would mean I'd have to unload the trunk to find it. Not in the mood. So...for the first time I grabbed a can of Fix-A-Flat thinking I would have a temporary fix so it could drive to Firestone and get fixed. WRONG!!!! Yes, it fixed his flat but NO, a flat can't be fixed after using Fix-A-Flat. HUH!?!?!?!? Seems the chemicals in Fix-A-Flat adhere to the inside of the tire making it impossible to patch the tire after using it. chit. Does the can of Fix-A-Flat tell you this? no. WHO KNEW!!! Not the guy at the auto parts store. damn. So momma ends up buying a new tire and getting the oil changed for the S-car. cha-ching!
Then I thought I'd be a good mommy and get the car washed and vacuumed and armor-all'ed for the boy. I never did that for me when it was my car!! LOL
