it's going to have to wait....

here's a text you DON'T enjoy reading from your husband: "my car is smoking". UGH. it's been on it's last legs for a while. it's 17 years old. 200,000 miles on it. been a great car. but no AC for the last 4 years. Transmission has been d.y.i.n.g. a slow death for the last couple of months. And yesterday apparently it had enough. Started smoking while David was making some visits. Then died flat out twice while he was driving home. He thankfully made it home safely and we spent the next few hours on the computer looking at cars. Guess what he's doing today? Yep. We had hoped to make it to the end of the year, but I guess october will be the lucky month for a "new" car for David!!! so everything I had HOPED to get done today will just have to wait!!

george and allysia got a car a few months ago at an auction in n.c. it was government owned and less than 20k miles and a great price. good luck looking and finding! that was a good car!

I hear you on this post--except we have just been a one car family since we moved home...and hope to make it until January...that is our goal. There are days when Daniel (my very planned and organized husband) decides that he is going to go out and buy a car "this weekend". :) Praying you guys get a good deal on something.
