Stressin'

You may (or may not) have noticed that I haven't been around commenting this past week. It's OK if you haven't noticed ;). I am stressed. Last Sunday, I was driving my husband's truck and the freakin' Engine Blew! Of course, I had the boys with me, so I stopped to call the husband since I didn't want to wait three hours for a tow truck to fit all three of us. Did he answer either phone? Of course not... So, I kept trying to start the dang truck and it kept making this really high revving noise. Then, the third time, there was no revving, just loud knocking. Well, I was only a mile and a half from home. SO, I turned up the stereo (I hate myself for lovin' you by Joan Jett - kind of fitting for the enraged feelings I had at that particular moment) and headed home.

So, long story even longer... we are looking for a truck. We didn't want to and it's not at all financially convenient right now, but we are. We have some things in our favor, though. The first and most important being that we have EXCELLENT credit. So, basically, these car salesman fall at our feet. They WANT to work with us, and we have the upper hand, so that's nice. That's also why it's taken a full week to find what we want. We aren't settling for less than we deserve. But, we weren't planning on doing this for a year {sigh}.

I will try to be better this week in posting. I have had a lot I have wanted to say, but all my spare time has been spent looking for a flippin' truck!!

It seems things always happen at the wrong time. At least you will be able to get a good deal.

Eek! Did being my friend rub some car bad luck on you? I am so sorry!!

Good luck finding the perfect truck. And I'm glad you aren't settling. Here's hoping you find something that comes with AWESOME seat covers for your ninja (the ones we have on our computer chair would be PERFECT for him!!)...

Hiya! Wandered over from theVasquez3. Always looking for other good mommy blogs. Cheers for the great credit! Not easy in this economy. Did you find your truck yet?

I know how you feel, life gets so busy!! Sorry about your truck. It will be nice to get a new one, but no fun having a payment you weren't planning on.

Talk about timing . . . at least you have fab credit! Plus, maybe that stimulus package check from the gov. may help!

Here's to finding the perfect truck!
