ok. i am trying desperately to keep my head up here. Sunday night Freddy was doing laundry and our washing machine broke. A serious thud, clunk, clunk and a grinding sound ensues. I get seriously ticked. I told him repeatedly to NOT wash all his jeans at once and do an extra large load. What does he do? Exactly that and now our machine dies.
We did luck out that a friend was etting rid of her old washer and offered it to us. We are picking it up today.
Then Wednesday night our car makes really loud funny noises. We take it to the mechanic on Thursday morning and we find out that we need a whole new engine. Are you fucking kidding me? This will cost us a lovely $1400! We have put over $5,000 into this damned car and it isn't even paid for yet. It wont be done until July of next year!
My wonderful BIL is helping us out with this which makes us feel horrible because we don't want to have to owe him but we do what we have to do.
Dacian's oh so wonderful GDiapers no longer fit him. Really?! I just spent all that money and he has already out grown 4 covers. 6 still fit but even they are getting a little small. I just bought 5 more Weehugger covers off of diaperswappers so I am waiting for those to come in so I can sell the GDiapers and buy even more of those or Thirsties. UGH. I will be happy when I am done buying covers out of necessity. We are going to be on an even stricter budget thanks to this car BS.
I have had hours scaled back just enough to make it even harder on the budget. So now I am thinking I should go back into tarot readings just to make a few more dollars here and there. UGH.
I would cry over spilled milk but it doesn't clean up the mess. So instead I will drink a corona and let life just play out.
