Car troubles

Brian came home at lunch to take his car to Tuffy Automotive. I followed in the van. We were on Georgesville and Brian was trying to get throught stop lights without actually having to stop by going super slow. We hit a train and he had to stop. The train decided to go through, but then change it’s mind and go back. But the damage was done. Brian’s car was dead. He got out of the car to inform me, since my cell was turned off. Then he had me go ahead to Tuffy so I could get them to come tow it. There was a Jiffy Lube across the street and he ran in there and someone helped him get the car into the Western Lanes parking lot. Then gave him a jump, but it didn’t sound right and the car died again. I was told at Tuffy that if they called it would probably be $70+ so Brian called for the tow. I went and picked him up and brought him to work. It’s the alternator. $350 to fix, plus $50 for the tow. It really stinks, but it is cheaper for us to just fix it than to get another car right now. I know it seems like we put a lot of money into his car for maintenance and when it breaks, but that is what cars are. A money pit LOL. I was upset about it, but not anymore. Sally, a woman at Curves, put things into perspective for me. You just gotta do, what you gotta do.

  2. alternators are really $$$$ I am so sorry that you have to sink money into it… sadly we cannot live without them anymore. = ( Darn it anyway!

    I was talking about you last night with my mother and I was showing her your family and we were talking about how neat it is to see so many different looks within one family- and my mom was like “WOW one daughter looks just like Daddy and one looks just like Mommy!” and we both agreed on how sweet that is!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
