The life of a Monday. *sigh*

So I had a very interesting and stressful day to say the least today. I am writing this Monday night mainly to get it all out of my system. Cuz, man alive I am stressed. Some people have to deal with their health failing, broken arms, broken legs, hurt knees, bad periods....

Not me.

I have to deal with my cars that refuse to keep on running. Remember our red minivan with the overheating problem? Well about 2,000 dollars later...FIXED. And guess what? Hubby and I were driving, (Thankgoodness he was behind the wheel, and the car seized to function... transmission went out on our 2001 Oldsmobile Silouette.

Worst part? I had my husband put in about 60 bucks of gas in the car yesterday.

Now it's at the mechanic with a quote of about 2,500 to fix.

When will it ever end? *sigh*

I am saving money for lots of things right now. Rent for next month, an airline ticket to see my brother get married, money to get out "other" green minivan fixed, and just plain savings for a rainy day.

I am working part time in a field I love cuz the resident census is down and they don't have room for another full time CNA right now....Maybe later?
Or that job in St. George will hire me.
And if they hire me, maybe some car place can finance us for a new "used" car for not that much.

I am so FRUSTRATED I could scream.

I'm gonna look for a happy picture for Happiness project.

Oooh, I've got just the one.

It makes me happy so I'm gonna count it tonight.


Yeah that's right. Benjamin Bratt makes me happy. AND he guest starred on Private Practice last week. Did you see it?

It was yummy.

Well, I still have my car problems. But at least I have something yummy to look at in the mean time.
If any of you want to donate to the Cluttered Brain "Fix the broken cars" FUND go right ahead.
Sponsor me.

Hope y'all have a better day than my Monday....*sigh*

I did not see that episode (I are super surprised that I haven't gotten around to watching it yet!)

I feel you on the car issues. SO much.

I'm praying that y'all can get something reliable.

I am so sorry about the car/employment woes! So many of us really do understand. Thank goodness for Benjamin :)

I'm sorry about the car problems, I can sooo relate, at times it seems like it never ends!!!! Hang in there!

Danyelle said...

I'm so sorry about your car problems and such, but it is great that you can see something to be happy about.

My eldest son is having similar luck with their two cars lately. He is worried, as you are.

It's hard when cars start to get old, and there are no funds to replace them. He always has trouble deciding whether or not to put more money into a car that will probably become irreparable at some point.

Good luck figuring out what to do. Hope you both come into big bucks!

I'm so sorry for the frustrations! Cars are so frustrating.

We'll have to get together one of these weeks when life starts to slow down. Well, it may never slow down, but we should still meet sometime!

There's something about minivans that just drive me crazy. They're ALWAYS breaking! Yet we still own one. Not sure why.

Been there. Done that. STILL wearing the T-shirt!

Daffy said...

Well that made me happy :o)

Cars...pshaw...kick the tire a few times might make you feel better. Works for me sometimes. Be sure to have shoes on. Learned that one the hard way.
