I posted a little about this on LBYM...what was I thinking...I know, I was thinking LBYM was where I would get my @$$ chewed for being stupid for even thinking about it. I posted here to get constructive critisism and positive reenforcement for me to reach my goals. Everything in moderation you know!

As I stand in the pouring rain, my boots are soaking wet. The wind is blowing the hair out of my ponytail which I took ever so much care putting up this morning after my newly adopted work out. My uniform is drenched and sticking to me and the rain is running down my face messing up my make up. The door unlocks and I slip in. As I get comfortable in my seat, enjoying the warmth of the sun that was once there, I slide the key into the ignition.....

And the pinche madre car won't start! I don't know what is wrong
with it this time. It was pounding down rain so hard I couldn't hear
the engine AT. ALL.

Ok, that was actually the other day. Yesterday I got in and turned the key. It said "click click click". AAAARRRGGGG!!!!!

I didn't like this car to start with! It's not meee. I've wanted a Ford Escape for about a year now...I kind of accidently asked for a local Ford dealer to contact me...I'm looking forward to being out of debt by January and don't know how I'd get a loan for a new vehicle, so I really should even be thinking about it. I can't help it!!!

I had the battery replaced about a week and a half(?) ago, and the guys told me my alternator was bad. Priced alternators...OMG!!! So I did what we did when I was younger...I called up the local junk yard. My step-father is so my better with cars than me :-) But at least he's patient and has a cell phone so even when he's in the field he can still tell me what to do! I finally found time to put my alt. in on Thursday (?) and my battery is already zapped! Now all I need is a jump so I can go back to POS junk yard and get another POS alt and repeat this aggrivating cycle again.

But that's not what I WANT to do. I don't want to worry about replacing my alt. every other week! I just want new wheels!

Ok, talk me out of it!!!!!
