Diecardo

So, a week ago, my car got a more thorough look.  It's indeed a problem with the motor, & there was no more specific cause sought because any of the possible causes would be on the expensive side to fix & the car is not worth putting the money into.  I would have had the car for 6 years come October & the car is 17 years old.  It also had a few other minor problems that it's had for a while but weren't important enough to bother fixing (a/c doesn't work, heat blower doesn't blow super well).  But it was a nice little car while it lasted.  It was my first & only car thus far.

So I've spent the past week looking at cars, online, ads, along the road, & in lots.  Some potentials, many which were snapped up quickly.  A week ago I went in to see what I could get for a small car loan & today I went ahead & went in with the last couple papers & they prepped the papers & stuff so I could go ahead & have it ready & waiting for when I do find an acceptable car.  I'm not too picky, I'd like one that's cheap but decent.  Good gas mileage, prefer 4 doors, prefer an automatic (as I've driven a stick only a small handful of times, but would consider it if other things such as cost & that were good), needs some sort of radio, & everything in working order.

Next week probably my car will be taking a trip to the scrap/junkyards to see how much I can get out of it.  I don't expect too much, since it's smaller (less metal/weight).  And I've been working a little bit more lately.  So that's good, since I need the money more than ever since I will now have a payment (albeit small but I only work part-time & have all my other bills) on the loan every month.

So that's what I've been doing.  Working & looking for a vehicle (like it's my 2nd part time job, lol).  And arranging ways to get to & from work, which has worked out pretty well so far.  I have tomorrow off, as well as Friday-Sunday.  A friend/former roommate of mine is coming to visit this weekend.  And I'm hoping another friend will visit too, but I don't know what she's up to.

I hope you are all doing well!  I read & keep up on blogs it just seems I fall behind on commenting sometimes because I am often laying in a position that is not comfortable to type when I am online.  It's the same reason I don't post as often as I think to/would like.  Have a great week & happy hump day tomorrow! <3
