The trip to Columbus was nice. They've done a very good job with the arena district, I really liked that part. And the Blackhawks stomping the Blue Jackets didn't hurt, either. What wasn't so nice was waking up the next morning and finding our car broken into.
After finding ourselves down 2 iPods, a GPS, and the driver side window, we didn't have too much else to do but come home. If you've never driven from Columbus, OH, to Crawfordsville, IN, without a driver side window in mid-to-late February, I wouldn't recommend it.
After we got back to Crawfordsville, I managed to vacuum up all the glass I could find and got the window covered in plastic. Yesterday, we brought the car (our only car, at the moment, if I haven't mentioned that yet) in to get a new window. I dropped it off at 8, and we were told it would be an hour and a half. After maybe a half hour of sitting at the glass shop (reading God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater, if you were curious) they told me they forgot to order the window, so it wouldn't be in until about noon that day. Annoying, but nothing too bad. I got a ride from my mother-in-law to Purdue, where I then met up with my buddy Adam, who let me chill in his place until he was done teaching and we would go get the car.
2:30 (the appointed time) rolled around, and my phone rang. Instead of the shop like I was expecting, it was Kristine. Not that I didn't want to talk to her, but I was getting antsy for the car to be done. At a bit after 3, I called the shop to check up on things. Just finishing up they said. I got dropped off at the shop a little while later. And I pretty much sat there until the car was done at 5. So an entire working day was put into fixing this car window that was supposed to take 90 minutes. Very frustrating, but at least it's done. And they managed to reset the theft alarm, but I don't know if that was intentional or not.
Anyway, because of all that, I've been a bit out of the sports loop. I do see the Blackhawks managed to beat the Red Wings, which is an accomplishment. Now maybe we can be the ones to stop the streak in Detroit. Wabash's basketball season came to an end last night, though. A bit of a disappointing year, but there are good things on the horizon.
Purdue and Pacers on tonight. I'm feeling good for a pair of wins tonight. I know I could certainly use them.
