I also live walking distance from my parents...lol!

So I was running some errands this morning, with Cameron, and was debating stopping to get gas, or go to the next city where I had something to exchange and get gas there. I decided to get gas across the street from where I was. I went to pull in beside the pump....and MY CAR KEPT GOING!!! I maneuvered into the only parking spot available (a handicapped one unfortunately) and used the snowbank to stop the car. A brake line went. I was able to stop fine leaving the plaza across the street. Imagine if I had got on the highway instead?!?! I kept calling DH on his personal cell phone and his work phone. It took me half an hour to reach him. He was just finishing work anyways (short day because of new years!), and came and picked us up while we waited for CAA. There was a Tim Hortons beside the gas station where Cam and I waited while trying to get a hold of DH since I had less than a quarter of a tank of gas in the car and couldn't keep the car running to keep Cam warm.

What a way to end 2012. Anyone else's year going out with a bang?
