At the end of my rope.....

I am at the end of my rope friends.......for about a week since my car was fixed the first time I have been having trouble. Each time it takes 2xs to start it and the car makes a "wrenching" sound while it tries to start....does that make any sense? So I have been telling Matt all of this.....well finally yesterday I got him to listen to my car start and the sound was clearly there and he claimed he heard nothing. I was like "you have got to be kidding me".?!? So that was the end of that..............
So today when I got into my car it made an awful noise and died......and now it wont even turn over. I am LIVID. I am not a crazy person, not trying to get a new car just because or anything like that but this is ridic. I mean I am 30 and I had to call and beg my mommy to drive me to my office today, I mean this blows. It looks like I am going to be spending money on a rental car now, I mean I have things to do this week both for work, JH and personal. My car is a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer with 150k miles, a broke door, a broke console and paint chipping.......my baby is worth 2k TOPS so any money put in is like I am throwing it away. I love my car and have loved it for 9 YEARS!!! It is comfy, loved and was reliable until this year. I can't always be scared to death when it will die next on me.....I was told my shocks are shot, brakes are almost out and now who knows........ I am literally the luckiest girl alive that both times it died in my neighborhood!
I sometimes feel like my safety and my car is not on anyone's priority list. Sucks

that ALWAYS happens to me!! I swear the car is falling apart and when my husband checks it...magically fine. I dont get it. Conspiracy! How you can figure something out

I know that feeling, darlin'. I drove the same car for 10 years and kept throwing money into it b/c I felt guilty that I needed to buy something new. Eventually it got to the point where it was obvious me and her needed to part ways. Seems like you're at that piont, too. Do your research and find something you love that's reasonably priced and DON'T feel guilty about buying it!

So sorry to hear about your car! Good luck to finding something that you will love just as much!

I can certainly feel your pain. I have to use two hands to count the number of times my cars have made me walk. It sucks.
I can help with any transport you need as well. Especially if I am working from home, since I don't usually leave the house at all on those days.
