My Car Stinks.

Oh, the joys of having a crappy car! My little Pontiac and I are going to have it out. I've had it for 3 years now. In the past 2 months, it hasn't started 3 different times. The first time I was at the tanning bed and my stepdad had to tow me to his friend's (Tilley) auto shop. He said it was the fuel pump, so we spent over $200.o0 bucks on a new one.

Of course, that didn't help. Scott went golfing a few weeks later, drove my car & the piece of poop wouldn't start for him. Had to get it towed again! Tilley wasn't for sure what the problem was. But they did something to the fuel pump again and it started right up. He said I would have to take it to a dealer and have them put it up on a lift and hook it up to something. GREAT. $$$$

I shouldn't have let it go but I did. Today, I had to go to Madison to tan and get Snickers & Rascal so more Science Diet. I sat in my car, turned it on, nothing. Wonderful. At least it didn't start here in my driveway. I'd be really ticked if I would of had to get the thing towed again!

So I had to drive Scott's BIG, enormous, gigantic truck. When I'm driving it I feel like a tiny little ant. I haven't drove it in forever...and today sucked because I had to go across the Madison-Milton bridge in it. I was holding on to the steering wheel so tight I had red marks on my hands!!!!!!

Here's my wonderful little car. Scott's saying it stinks. Please don't think anything of how he looks. He just finished working in tobacco haha! Tobacco- BLAH!

And here is his monster...

And me with the monster :)

His brother is supposed to be bringing over some electronic thingy (I have no idea what it is, I am clueless when it comes to vehicles) to see if he can figure out the problem. Let's hope so!

On to scrappy stuff. I created my first DT project for Posh Designs last night. Check out the Posh bloggy if you get a chance!

Hope you all are having a good Monday...hopefully mine will get better!!!!!!!
