Channeling the Car Gods...Please Be Kind

So, my car kind of crapped out on me a few days ago, and I have been thinking of little else. I don't know why it sends me into a state of panic when I let my mind wander to the act of actually going to a car dealership just to look. I think it's because I don't like change. In fact, that is exactly it. I don't like change at all. I've driven the same cars for years. I've worked at the same place for years. I've lived at the same place for years. (Great...typing all that just made me feel so boring! Now I not only have a crappy car to deal with, but I'm depressed.) I'm thirty one years old, and this is only my third car, and that includes the '72 Volkswagen Bug I got for my 16th birthday. I really like not having a car payment, but the time has come...it just stinks that it has come a month before Christmas...but what are 'ya gonna do? Wish me luck...the hunt is on for a good, reliable, low on gas, won't break the bank car...

I want everybody thinking affordable-car-thoughts for me! ;-)

I wish I knew enough about cars to recommend something for you, but I really don't. I do know that you can find quite a few different ones for pretty good prices and low gas ... I wish you luck. I have been trying to talk my twin girls into getting a bug - I love them and the new ones are so cute - they want that old Mustang my husband has and so he is going to fix it up for them. Good luck - it will be fun to have a new car!! Take care.

How about the car troubles? Hopefully, it is up and running and you can take some time with car shopping. I DON'T envy you...not liking changes just might be genetic!
