Day 144 Wishing Upon a Star

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Hello my spark friends. Well found out our only vehicle may need to be temporarily in the shop due to overheating problems, and have no idea how I will make it to my appointments, or my dad's let alone get my shopping done for birthdays, our Valentine's Dinner date and some much needed new shoes. So more than a little stressed at the moment, and wishing we had better luck with things. We already have 2 vehicles that are not running because we don't have the money to fix them. One our old van, it overheated but we had a shortcut for it, but that doesn't matter when the tranny went out on it last April. And our car, that has several mysterious problems and won't even start up that has been sitting for 1 1/2 years now because we're clueless. UGH!!! emoticon So mad. Anyways, today is wishing, wishing things were I always do. I colored my self a quote collage yesterday to add to my wall of stickers as I go along...not the best but it's all I had around the house at the moment. I really need some support, I would ask my parents to help. But neither of them have vehicles, nor does my sisters or my brother whom aren't too far away. No friends nearby that could lend a hand without it interfering in their life either. Especially since I don't know how my husband will get to work if there is no vehicle, he travels for work to many different stores, he's a meat cutter. And I can't see him walking anywheres from 10-45 miles just to get to work. YIKES! Well....hmmm. Oh but I did try out a new recipe yesterday, that everyone absolutely loved even me....

    Husband won't let me get rid of the other vehicles, not to mention he wants to get the transmission fixed on the other van...which is around $1500, going tomorrow to find out for this one. But I believe they do not have loaner cars.

    Aww, sorry to hear that you guys are in such a tight spot with the vehicle. Does the garage have a spare car? When I had to leave mine for work & had people to pick up at the airport, the garage I went to gave me a loaner car for $15/day and I know some places do it for free. What about a cheap rental?

    With the 2 cars that you have that can't be driven, have you thought about turning them in to a scrapyard or a collection program for money that you could use with this car? I can't remember which non-profits do it up here in Canada, but I think one is lung related.

    Good luck!
