More Car Woes

That's right folks, out car problems have not magically disappeared. It looks like the car repair estimate is at just over $500 right now. And the guy hadn't even looked at the breaks yet, which certainly need work. We paid $1000 for our car, it doesn't seem smart to pay that much to repair it. So we started looking on Craigs List. Sadly most of the cars in our price range are junk. Although we did have some fun reading all the ads. People can really be stupid. There was one that said that everything works except the engine. Hmmm, tempting. So, we're still looking at our options.

Oh no! Jason is going to a car auction tomorrow (I know truly surprising) maybe he can keep an eye out for a good deal. Are you wanting another van or just any car with a "working engine"?

Happy Birthday Kelsi!!!

So sorry - what a hassle! I hope you can find a good deal on a new car. At least the $1000 you spent on that one got you a long way!

And by the way - the OCD part of me needs to mention that Brakes is spelled incorrectly - don't you love grammar police??

Sharyl, I am SOOOO glad you mentioned the spelling of "brakes" - I wanted to mention it but since you did, you're the one who's rude and not me..... And Jessy - bummer deal on the car!
