We are still waiting to hear about G-man's car. Hopefully before lunch we will know. On Saturday we decided that $1000-$1200 was the LIMIT we were willing to spend to fix the car. That would drain our car maintenance fund, and would use the last of the refi money (that was SUPPOSED to go to bring our E-fund back to $1500 and the remainder to debt).
That was Saturday.
On Sunday....my car decided to start overheating. We can tell that coolant is leaking, but can't tell if it is the water pump (which has been replaced 2x in the past 6 months) or the hose. Really Universe????
The reaction last night...screw it all...these cars aren't worth it. Let's get 2 new cars. We didn't....but it was a thought. Not a good thought...but a thought.
We have to find out about G-man's car, and then my car will go into the shop on Friday (most likely). Meanwhile, we have to have some contingency plans. We can't afford all of this. And I will just cry if we end up having to get a new car, let alone 2. I will say that we will only get a beater car....we aren't looking at some nice, new car. We will get what we can either not have a payment with, or a payment that is very very small.
Update: Not the battery. It appears to be the security system. We now have to tow the car to the dealership because the security system is proprietary information, so we need them to look at it. It could be a bad module or a transponder. Dunno. GRRRRRRR.
A friend is having some issues with another friend (I don't know this other person). But my friend is quite distraught. She has been hanging out at my house alot in the past few days or tezting and calling me. It is fine.
Yesterday, her husband and son went to a family event, and some bad stuff went down there. He was really upset. He called his wife, who was at my house, and asked if he could come over too. Sure!
We were sitting at my kitchen table, and she proclaimed that my house is where relationships go to die.
GREAT. My house is the Vortex of Negative Energy!!!
