My meltdown

July 10th, 2009 at 12:06 pm

Yep...it happened last night. My son called me that his car wasn't working. Turns out the serpentine belt broke. Easy fix right?? I bought the belt for $24 and took it to him. 2 hours later we still couldn't get the tension released. Long story short, there is now a wrench stuck on the tensioner that doesn't have enough room to pull it off. We had to leave the car there.

After this, with everything else that happened yesterday, I broke down. I was in tears. Funny thing is that when my son sees me cry, he instantly turns into a supportive caring person! I know it is in there somewhere! Any other time, he would have been cursing his car, saying that it sucks, doing a poor me routine. But when he saw me crying, he coompletely changed. I broke down and told him about the problems with DH yesterday. He was like "we were fine for how many years without him? If he moves out, then we will be fine again. I am making money now and I can help out. We don't need him there to be fine." All of this is true. He then said..."why don't you go to your BF house and stay the night." He took me there, then went home to let the dogs out and feed them. Got me some clothes and my medicines. I am just surprised sometimes how mature and caring he can be. He hides it most of the time.

I still am not sure what is going to happen. Thanks to all who have left thoughtful comments. I am not rushing into anything and will wait until he comes home tomorrow to see what happens.

    Oh and I got dinner at Subway last night. I don't know what possessed me to do it...it was before the car thing. But I am glad I did now...It was after 10:00 when we left!

    We all need to cry sometimes. Stress really builds up in people, and it sounds like you and your son had a good bonding moment.
