Oddities

***UPDATE***
It WAS just the battery, they said I must have left something on, like a light or an opened car door. I don't exactly remember doing that, but I'm not a mechanic Ü. They are the professionals, RIIIIGHT? So, the car is back, hopefully it will run for just a FEW more months!!


*Buying my girls and I ice cream cones on the coldest day in weeks, then hanging out in the car with the heater on Ü.
*My car not starting in the parking lot of Joann's.
*That same heater not working while we freeze our buns off waiting for James to come jump my car.
*My car starting after the first jump, then dying as I put it in gear, then starting again after the second jump, then dying again while driving out of the parking lot...I got to help push my dead car into a parking spot...thats a first!

So...since we can't afford a new car at the moment, I'm praying that it's just the battery and Firestone can work their magic. If not...please don't point and laugh when you see me and the girls walking down the street from Albertson's in our shopping cart!

Krista said...

Oh no!!! That sucks big time!! I hope it's just a battery. And I would give you a ride too;)

Kelli said...

OH, man, that totally sucks. My fingers are crossed that it's an easy (and cheap) fix.

Eeeck!!! I hope it’s just the battery. This cold weather is never fun – even my new car takes longer to start in the cold weather.

Oh no! I HATE cars! Seriously, you need a ride, food, anything you call!

YUP! CARS SUCK! We just spend 955 dollars to get our started again... and we still need to do a few things to it. But we dont have car payments so we just want to hang on to them as long as we can! I hope for you it's something small! That is NOT what we wanted to spend our income tax return on (car repairs) YUCK! This is how I feel... Old cars, New cars, remote control cars, they all suck!

You don't know if you left a light on or a door open because you're not a mechanic? GAAAH
