Car Problems & Some Good News

March 10th, 2014 at 02:12 pm

Some good news is the car parts only cost $75 instead of $100.

The bad news is, he fixed it yesterday, and it still died on me, and the rattle is worse than ever. It was so bad while I was driving to work, I dont think it is safe to drive at this point. He is leaving work and coming to take a look at it. Something is very wrong.

Probably needs the timing chain replaced now. Which is upwards of $500+.

I am not so sure I want to invest any more money in this piece of crap. I may be titling the Neon sooner than I thought.


Now some good news. My two does had kids on Saturday while I was running an errand. 4 healthy babies. They had them at exactly the same time, so they are all confused and the mommas are just sharing the babies and they just eat off of both of them. They are so cute!

Here is the little boy I am keeping. The rest are girls and I will sell them for $250+ each. Hurray, hurray!

Putting the propane on my credit card today, and will pay it off next Monday. So glad that will be done.

Now I just have to rush to finish the Roth and continue paying down the Neon.

My freelance jobs need to send me a payment, that would help a lot.

    I also wanted to add that the Dodge Neon was not the car I was thinking of. (Or they have improved over the years). Looks like a very nice car, to me. Though we don't haul much, we have found a small 4-door sedan is more than ample with two kids. You just don't have to buy the biggest car seats and strollers on the market. When I had my kids it was like the peak of the SUV market. I felt like the only person on the planet not to buy a SUV-sized stroller. (We went for small/light/easy to maneuver). All this to say - I think the car could be a fairly good long-term car for you. OR you will be able to buy up at some point. Either way. I amend my earlier comments a bit.
