Ya know, everything was going real good. I paid off the credit card, we purchased the rest of the stuff to finish redoing our bathroom, I haven't had a shower in the master bath since June of 07, and I found my day planner that has been missing for 2 weeks.
Then on Sunday the truck started to make a knocking noise. Okay, no big, add more oil. Knocking goes away. Go and finish bathroom shopping, knocking comes back louder. We get home Rob adds more oil. Nothing changes. We decide to let it sit and Rob went to start the truck last night and nothing. We have power but the truck just won't start. Tried to jump it but not even a flicker of truck grumbling.
Let's just say scared is an understatement.
This has been the best vehicle we have ever owned. She hasn't given us any problems and now it's looking like it's going to cost close to a thousand to fix.
HELLO Mr. credit card, did you miss me?
Dang it, we just got out of debit and now it pulls me back in. Granted we will use that Bush tax check to pay most to all of it off, but still.
Now the waiting starts, first towing costs, diagnostic check, and we need the rear seal fixed and now who knows what else.
**On a different topic, poor Kelly is sick again. This is day two being home from school. Not a happy camper but thankfully it just seems like another cold. But with all the crap that is floating around she sure as heck doesn't need to be contaminating anyone else. So Kelly is quarantined to the house until the fever and sniffles have passed. Poor kid, stuck in bed or on the couch all day with nothing but Disney and movies to watch, books to look at, all your meals brought to you. It must be so rough, I feel so bad for her ;)
All your prayers are very much wanted and needed.
Love carrie

I'm so sorry to hear about Kelly and the truck!!! I hope it all works out and it's not a huge expense.

AH BLUE (my name for the truck) hell and damnation, I really like that truck, and it just had to spill its guts...well, my many thanks and blessings for the help from Robs mom, God bless her. But now just think, trips to Phx. won't worry you any more. :) Bad joke !!!

Poor Bug, she has had such a hard time of it this winter, I hope this will be the last of it, get well sweetheart, I knew she wasn't feeling well last week when I stopped over and she was in bed at 7 o'clock. And I will admit that "I" never had anyone wait on me like that...OHHH poor me!!!

Love to you all, it's a beautiful Sunday, ENJOY
