We are a two car family. This is a luxury. Having two cars does make life a little easier. We have a car and an SUV. DH drives the car, the car is our gas saver. We drive it everywhere. The car was bought brand new in 2003. She has been good to us. Well, that is until last Thursday. Coming home she just decided to die while we were driving. I don't know what the heck she was thinking but I'm sure she has her reasons.
DH was able to get us home by two footing it. One foot on the brake the other on the gas. We decided to replace the alternator. So on Friday after DH got off work he went an bought a new one. Fail. That didn't fix the problem. That cost $177 for nothing. Thinking that maybe the alternator went bad and caused the battery to die we charged the battery all night and all day. Once DH got home from work on Saturday he checked on the car. Fail again!
That night we went to eat at my MIL house and to take all the kids trick or treating in her neighborhood. Once we were finished DH went to buy a new battery, hoping the battery was bad. You guessed it another fail. There was $85 down the drain also. This time we decided that we would take it the a shop. This makes me nervous because I have no idea what it will cost. Today they are suppose to try and fix it.
Do you ever worry about stuff like this? Like how are you going to pay for this or that. I am right now. We have been hit with a lot of unexpected bills lately. I just pray we have enough money in our account to pay for it.
