On the Road again.

Well, I have gotten the ole Saturn the tune of $800.00 in repairs with more needed.

I told them to just do what had to be done to get me back on the road again.

The one thing that was really hard on me was having NO ONE to call for help.

After the fact there were several people that siad I could have called, but I had never asked them for help before and didn't know I would even have been welcome to call.

On another note have you ever done something that seemed like a great idea and the time and then in retrospect you kick yourself for not thinking it through better. I can't tell you how many times I have done that lately.

Why am I so impatient for life to already hurry up and just happen? I want something now....I hate waiting.

That last line... I totally can relate

yeah i do remember. when i scored 88% marks in my 10th standard. i had to wait for seats for different schools. i just hurriedly rushed to the available seat for a school only to realize that if i had waited some more i would have been in better school.

Life happens everyday ... whatever is going to come your way is well worth the wait. Better to wait for something good then to be stuck with something not so good *wink*

Call ghostbusters next time!

Okay Barb, glad you got the car back and sorry about the $800. BUT.. you left us hanging with that "did ya ever..."? What did you do that you later regretted?!?!

$800 - ouch. At least it's getting fixed. If you're like my family with cars, you're glad you still have this one, because you've sort of grown attached to it, even if it's troublesome. We're sort of weird that way, though.

Well glad you got your car back, even if it did cost $800! That's steep!

I keep trying to make myself be more patient. But, it's hard cause I'm always afraid if I wait around I'll miss everything.

I feel your pain! I just found out that it'l cost $1,700 if I want to get the transmission in my 10 year old van fixed.

I've done LOTS of things that were stupid in hindsight. That seems to be the underlying theme of my blog, come to think of it!

well at least you got the car back on the road again.

Did they say what was / is wrong?

funny I am reading this and listening to your song here Unwritten... it soooooo speaks to what you are writing.

I think that sometimes you need to let it go b4 it will come. Its the ole story... when you least expect it... kind of thing. Keep the faith, but, without really knowing what you are taking about, I bet you need to focus on something else b4 it will come to you. Its like trying to watch a pot of water boil. It will happen... eventually... but if you go take a shower, brush your teeth and shower... when you look back it will be boiling!

Just a silly opinion... oh and I LOVEEEEEEE this song... Drift Away! gosh! Great tunes!

I totally know how you feel. I've been through the same issue -- not knowing who to call with a problem. Unfortunately I've tended to stick with the same few people.

The Lone Beader said...

Whenever I have car trouble, I just call AAA. Do you really need to call anyone else?? LOL.

No, seriously, I don't call anyone for help... It's good practice to be self-sufficient.

Lol, it seems that I have!

Sorry to hear about the hard hit on the pocketbook. What was the matter with it?

patients my dear patients.

I am forever doing something that seems like a good idea at the time, but later, I smack myself in the forhead, and say, "What the hell was I thinking?"

The good things in life come when you aren't expecting them. At least that's how its been for me.

And, whenever you're in dire need, it seems that's when you feel the most alone. Don't ask me why, but that's the way its been for moi. Sometimes I think we're God's version of the Simpsons.
