I give up

I give up. I hate my life. It seems that everything goes wrong at once. First my husband has a kidney stone, which by the way he still has not passed. Then yesterday his car dies. He is driving down the road and something snapped. He made it to work, but had to be towed home. Ok, bad but not tragic. We have been down this road before. Park the car, save the $$ get the car fixed. Only we are trying to save our $$ for this trip to Gettysburg. So we talked it over and decided that we really want to make this trip, so we will just share our other car for a few months and still try and go. Then fix his car in the fall. Like I said bad, but do-able. So this morning I get up to take him to work. Well, I noticed the car hesitated a bit when trying to crank it, but this has happened before. I am guessing (with my fingers crossed) that the battery is going bad.
I get him to work, stop off at his DR. to pick up more samples of his medicine (for the kidney stone). and notice it did the same thing. So when I got home and parked it I thought to myself that I better try and crank it again. Yep you guessed it the damn thing is DEAD. I am suppose to be at work at 1pm and stay till 10. My husband gets off at 5:30 and has to have a ride home.
Thankfully I live near my ex-husband and he is off work early today, so I have asked him to take me to work, and then either him or my daughter will have to go get my hubby. Then come get me at 10. Ok this takes care of today, but I have to work all weekend and next week. I am soooo broke, I have rent due and if I take this money for a battery we are screwed. All I wanted to do was go to Gettysburg. Now I have a sick husband and two broken cars. Can someone just shoot me now!

Isn't that always the way it happens!! Life can be such a struggle with money being so tight and everything like gas and food going up ridiculously. Then they wonder why there are so many street people!!! I wish I had tons of money to be able to send you but unfortunately I don't! Sigh. You may have to put off the trip although I know how much you're looking forward to it...hard when you have to make decisions like that:-( xoxo

You poor thing. If it isn't one thing it is definitely another. Praying that things go better for you all from here on out.

I am so sorry! That sounds about what my month of February was like. But don't give up. Keep on a savin' and a chuggin' away.

Trust me when I say in a year you will go back to this post and realize what a silly thing this is and how you worried over nothing.

Keep your chin up, Patty! You'll get to Gettysburg sooner or later.
