Stupid @#%$@&% Car

Breathe. Just Breathe.

Sigh...I am trying to be positive. My husband just called to inform me that the car we had our hearts set on we can't get. We don't have the best credit (stupid mistakes in the past coming back to haunt us) so even with a co-signer and putting $2500 down on the car we can not get the loan for a $7000. I am not gonna lie, I cried a little. It's just frustrating, we are trying our best with what little we have and we get screwed. That car would have been perfect for us! Instead, we have to settle for a car that is older and probably less reliable. I am so tired of settling. I am done with my pity party. Sorry you had to hear that.

Up until the frustrating news, I was having a decent day. Harliegh and I made whole wheat blueberry muffins for breakfast. I only ate one with a half a banana and a glass of skim milk. Then later, we had our 30 min dance party which sends Harliegh into fits of rewarding for all that sweat and work! Then we went outside to cool off and take a ten minute walk. For lunch I tried the new Select Harvest Light soup from Campbell's. It was really good, and only 120 calories if you eat the whole can...which I shared with Harliegh. We also had some sugar-free Jell-o, only 10 calories a cup! After I put Harliegh down for a nap, I did a good 35 minute workout on the Wii Fit. I am looking forward to measuring tomorrow, cause I do feel...tighter. I am scared I will feel disappointed though because the wii weighs me everyday and I know I haven't made much progress with that. I keep telling myself that it is because I am gaining muscle and I will see results in a week or two. Hopefully.

Well, I guess I feel a little bit better. I need to be positive. As of right now, we are still without a car, and we lose the rental on Monday. But something positive has got to happen, right? RIGHT? tell me I'm right! Please?


  1. Just an update: I just got off the phone with Tyler. He literally called right as I was posting my blog. The car dealer dudes started showing him OTHER cars for $12,000! WTH? Why would we be able to get a car that costs more? Well, Tyler pointed this out and told them how much we need a car and how much we wanted the other car...and just like that, they worked something out and we have the car we originally wanted! Our payments will be $50 more than what we were paying which sucks...but we can handle it. I now have new found faith in the power of this blog!(ok...and God, too) HA!

  2. I was just going to text to ask you what the heck happened?! I saw tylers status about having gotten a car, and i was like "that was fast." I'm SO happy for you. It seems like today was just bound to be a good day for both of us. Thank goodness.
