Rant and rave?

I have been a bad blogger lately and I apologize to my wonderful followers for that. I want to do another giveaway but the last one only got 3 entries so I don't really know if I will do another one any time soon. It was kind of a bit of a let down. Sometimes I don't understand how I have 220 followers and most of the time only get MAYBE 1 comment. I wonder if most of my followers are even on blogger anymore and if they aren't then why in the world doesn't Google get rid of them on the list?

*end rant*

The trip to Indiana was wonderful but we couldn't wait to get home. There was never really a dull moment there and we didn't get much time to ourselves though being around our families for 2 whole weeks was pretty fantastic seeing as we don't get to see them often. The trip home was a lot better then the trip there. It took about 14 1/2 hours instead of the 16 1/2 hours it took to get there. Mocha wasn't as big of a pain in the butt on the trip home but she didn't use the bathroom for 12 hours. We stopped a number of times but she totally refused to go. I don't understand why. I am really thanking God that she didn't get a bladder infection. I was very worried that she might get one because it's really unhealthy for a dog to go that long without peeing. We haven't had any problems with her health lately. I am thanking God for that, too.

The battery in my car started acting up a few days ago but we didn't think anything of it. Thursday, it wouldn't start so yesterday we took the battery to Auto Zone to get it tested and it was fine. They charged it up for us so Ryan put it back in my car and we took the car there so they could test the alternator. When she started the test the battery was at 70% and when she started the test again the battery was at 60% so that told her that the alternator was, indeed, bad. We took it in to Firestone and got it back today, $450 later. Sighhhhh, that car is costing us much more then it should be. It makes me wonder how the previous owner took care of it, if at all.

I think that's pretty much it. I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!

I'm here, just busy. I guess I didn't realize your giveaway had ended. Heck I can't even remember if I entered or not!

I will admit I do most of my reading through Google Reader and don't always take the time to click through and comment but I read every post!

Sounds like you had a nice trip to Indiana. Too bad about your car. Hopefully that's the last thing you have to replace for awhile!

I love giveaways. Mostly because I never win anything.

So, I spent $6000 on a new engine last year only to have my exhaust manifold crap out on me this weekend. USELESS CAR!
