Truck Might Need Something

As some might now, I’m a panic maniac when it comes to my truck and the brakes. After having one vehicle’s brakes go out, I’m overly cautious as I put and paranoid as everyone else says, :lol:. Bleh, and add to it that I need a new battery, and maybe a car repair estimate, I’m not looking forward to it.

I do have an upside to all of this. My dad is a mechanic. While he may not work on cars as his main profession anymore (he does cranes and lifts, etc now), he still puts around in car repair for family and friends as a side job. So, that means I get the car repair estimates for free, and most times, since he’ll most likely have the parts on hand, the car repair free. Works for me, :lol:.

If we do have to take it to an auto repair shop, I’ll be letting Josh do the talking. Why? Because I’m female and even my dad told me that most mechanics and shop managers will see female and try to screw them out of money. Yeah, that’s how the business works. I’ve seen it in electronic stores as well, though, but I know just as much about what I’m looking for, or more, so they don’t get too far with me on that aspect.

So, changed your oil recently?

Less Words Wednesday

I have removed my StartBar for Vista, and instead using ObjectDock. I think my brother-in-law will take one look at it and ask, “when can you put OSX on Windows?”. Okay, maybe not really, but hey, it’s worth a shot 😉

Just gotta get this out

I’m tired of struggling over bills. I’m tired of dealing with the cost of shit going up, but hours going down. I’m sick and tired of this life right now.

I just want to be put out of my misery, literally and figuratively. I wish this life was a bit easier. We’re having to cut back more and more with the stuff we have. What’s next? The internet? Well, how will I pay certain bills that are *only* payable online without a fee? The TV? Then we have to shell out more money for DVDs because the local channels do not come in here at all.

This means we’re having to put off buying a house more and more because the post office can’t guarantee hours for anyone anymore. The regulars get their 40 no matter what, but at the expense of the PTF’s getting any sort. That means Josh, since the lowest on the ladder, is one of the first to get sent home, if he’s even scheduled to come in.

I know I have a lot of things to be thankful for, but right now, I can’t see it, at all. I can’t see anything but this misery that we’re drowning in. Sorry kids, looks like we won’t be having a Christmas right now.

I Wish I Could

There are several products out there that I wish I could test and blog/vblog about, but they cost more money than we can afford 🙁 It sucks SO MUCH!!

The Kindle: Amazon’s Wireless Reading Device

The ability to read at the drop of a hat. I can just slide it into a bag and do it anytime I want. That’s just awesome.

Apple iPod touch

I don’t need a big one or a small one, just one to play with.

And, okay, is it just me, or is this whole thing sounding dirty, no matter how I write it?

Space Saver Laptop Bed Tray Multiuse Laptop Table Desk, Notebook Stand W/drawer

Yeah, yeah, I know, basic stuff, but have you ever tried, when you’re sick, to try and do what you need to do, and still have to try and focus on things.

Brother SE270D Computerized Sewing and Embroidery Machine

Can I please just have this? Really! Please!
Yeah, I have no idea how to sew, but I’m willing to learn 😉 Okay, I do know, I just haven’t done it since I was in the 8th grade. Made a pretty pillow out of it though 🙂

KitchenAid KSM150PSPK Komen Foundation Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer, Pink

Yes, it’s pink and yes, I wants.
Then again, Mom has already said, as soon as we get a house, give her our color choices, and she’ll hook us up. :ilu:

What would you test for blogging/vblogging if you could, or what’s in your plans to try out?
