Costco ... Again!

Yeah, there was another Costco trip made on a Wednesday night!

Of course, had to drive Brutus since the Tahoe took a dive last night on my way, yes, to Costco ... I was about 2 miles from there when I noticed a HUGE plume of smoke behind me when I left a stoplight ... ummm, hey, is that ME??? Yup, it certainly was. Red stuff just gushing out underneath. Wouldn't you know, Hubby is out of town?? Called tow truck, told them to take it to Lee's Auto and well, heck, I'll call him in the morning and let him know the baby is coming in yet again! Good grief. Long story short, thankfully, it's not the transmission (and thankfully, I pulled over IMMEDIATELY when I saw something wasn't right) ... just a hose that blew off, but the clamp is still attached which means .... they didn't connect it  correctly the LAST time it was there (end of August, after the roadtrip to take Sonny Boy to school) ... curious as to how much this is going to cost ...

So anyways, I was bound and determined to do a Costco run. I've got a girls night coming up on the 5th and well, I'm trying to stay stocked in MY foods while Hubby is out ... plus I needed some extensive cleaning supplies ... yeah, yeah, excuses, I know. Again, spent WAY too much money ...
