Friday is gonna be a long day. I don't drink beer but might just bring some in case I need to recruit help for set up! Boss wants the trailer in Palmdale Friday to bring back all the stuff that isn't going with the store for the sale. That means after I finally get off work I have to come home and load everything for the trip. Providing the shop gets the ol girl fixed. I won't be able to leave Palmdale till at least 3-4 and then stop at my store in Victorville and unload then home to load up my stuff. Ugh! Then pick up my son in Lucerne and head out there! That's not gonna be a fun day.

I called Dennis, he said the control arms were swapped out. He said, "damn woman, just come by the shop and let me look at it. If it needs trimmed I'll do it while you wait". Haha, he told me to settle down and quit stressing the small stuff

So tomorrow's my day off and I have Caleb, we will be going to the shop and all I will hear is, "Dama Jeep" for the rest of the day

He's been in Great Grandpas Jeep, he broke the turn signal Luckily Grandpa loves him.....alot!!

Mike just messaged me that the trailer shop can't fix the wiring, he said it's a long story. That just increased my stress level 1000%. Looks like Dennis may have to settle me down on that issue tomorrow too.

Otherwise, we will be the motorhome towing the JKU with wires duct taped down the side of the Jeep and big suction cup lights stuck on the back

Okay......that's not funny, but very well may be true

I'm going to the gym, I feel the need to hit something or throw some weights around

Viola! and problem solved.

Your Friday sounds like a nightmare. Just get through it as best you can it will end in a very happy weekend.

I'm gonna go crawl under the yj and pull of the front panhard bar. I need my daily dose of frustration.

Ya the inside is toast and has leaks I couldn't see. But he isn't charging me much for labor out the door with parts fan included and a hose that is rotten $300 and he said the metal ones are better for off road cause the plastic doesn't flex he could've gotten the plastic today for a $100 or the metal tomorrow for $200 I chose the metal cause I think it will last longer

Lol, Mike told me the exact same thing! You men really do stick together, even when you don't know each other

He said he bought a set of those last week for a utility trailer he got from his dad.

I'll duct tape them if needed, I found some bright orange duct tape

I give credit to my hubby, he knew this wiring thing has me stressed, yes we women stress the small stuff! He called Dennis and tomorrow the motorhome and Jeep will go to him and he will see what he can do. He will check the rubi rails too, if needed he will go ahead and trim them.

Ahhhhhhh, that's me sighing a big sigh of relief A killer workout helped too, I think I'll concentrate on making massive amounts of trail mix cookies with Caleb tomorrow. Poor kid will be so disappointed to ride in the Mazda to run errands, I'll have to teach him Zoom-Zoom and give him cookies to make up for it.

Oh, Mike got on the freeway in front of me coming home tonight.......my Jeep looks awesome from the back I'm always driving so haven't seen it going down the road.
