A Very, Very Bad Day

Today was.. well, not good. I have been having some car issues lately and I have been praying that it holds on until I can scrape up the money for it. Well, the issues that the car was having are fine. But a whole new set came about today, and caused a hot mess on my way to Target.

Let me explain. This weekend I brought the car to the auto shop that sold me my battery, because the mechanic told me it was leaking. So I had him test it. It tested fine, and I went on my way. J had the car the next day, and it wouldn't start. Come to find out, the battery was not attached correctly. So on my way to work tonight, my plan was to stop at the auto shop and have them fix it. Until the car totally died, right in the middle of a busy intersection, 5 pm. Not. Ok. I burst out crying, and some guy came over and got it going and followed me the rest of the way. LONG story short, they thought they fixed it, I drove it home and stalled out twice, and had it towed back. They don't know what's wrong with it, but I have no money to fix anything really... and I was declined when I applied for the mechanic's credit card. I have no idea what to do. I need this car. I had to call in to Target for today and tomorrow, and that's loss of income that I really need right now. If I can't get to Target, neither can J. It means that I can get to my full time job, because I have a friend who will get me, but that's it. I'm so stressed. The only positive thing that happened tonight was the fact that I was smart enough to sign up for roadside assistance through Allstate... GO ALLSTATE. Much better than AAA.

At the end of the day, I need my car. And even after I fix this issue, there is still the other, very expensive issue that was found last week during the oil change. And the inspection is coming up. And.. I'm starting to feel like I'm drowning, so I'm going to stop now. I hate this feeling. I hate that I bust my ass for 70 hours a week, putting off having a normal life, just so that we can survive. And just when I think things are going to look up, something happens to throw me back to the ground. Sorry everyone. I'm really bitter right now, and I'm going to stop before I start crying for the millionth time tonight.

Ugg! Aren't car issues that worst!? We're in a similar situation right now. Both of our cars have 150k+ on them! :( Hang in there!

I'm so sorry. Prayers that your car doesn't cost you a fortune to fix. Both of our vehicles are older and starting to give us fits. We can't afford to go buy one and have a car payment, much less two. I wish we could make some money off this blogging, then you wouldn't have to worry about driving to work.

I know the feeling. I've been there before with the car issues and it's AWFUL. I hope you are able to come up with the $$ and get your car back soon. *HUGS*

Thanks for all the support everyone! There is a chance that they found the problem and it will be finished by tomorrow without too much of a punch to the wallet, so I'm praying that it is what they think it is, and not something much worse.
