    Good Friday strikes with a vengeance..Again :(

    Well it hit us again with a vengeance. 15 years ago on good friday we were t-boned and my pretty raspberry cavelier was totaled. Yesterday my glasses broke at work. Screw came out and lens and screw went flying. Got the lens no screw. Am blind without them. I stuffed a paperclip in the hole and tightened them to finish my shift. Hubby said when I got home lets go get em fixed so off we went back to town. Did a few errands on the way. Yay glasses fixed...but wait theres more. heading home we go to head up the hill and the car loses all power won't down shift and check engine light is on. He rolls it backwards in to a pull off spot. Call my son to come rescue us and call the garage for a tow. We are already down a vehicle as mine died late last year and has not been replaced do to financial issues (sure does suck to be poor) So now down another and I have no way back and forth to work now until its fixed. Please say a few kind words for me that it is not expensive. We really need to catch a break here. Still reeling and playing catch up from hubby being out of work for 2 years.

    Well that made for a crappy day. Sorry to hear. Hopefully it will be an easy fix this time. I paid my car off finally and now little things are starting to happen to the car. It is so annoying. Good that you,were able to get your glasses fixed. Cannot do anything without those.

      Oh no. So sorry. I hope it's something that's not too expensive. You are right, you sure do need to catch a break

        I've been in your shoes like that and here's hoping the repairs are minimal and you get the car back ASAP!

            I'm so sorry to hear this! I am blind without my glasses too! Good thoughts sent for a low car repair bill and that it is easily fixed.

                  Iris, that really sucks! I think at one time or another, bad times hit us all, as well as Murphy days to boot! They seem neverending, don't they? Sending you warm thoughts and prayers that the repairs will be low cost, and for catching a break soon!

                    Not much good in that good Friday. My sister and her husband are in a similar situation and so I know it is really frustrating when work hasn't come and finances are so tight. Sending good wishes your way. I hope you find some comfort with this community's support.

                        We've had a date etched in memory too. What's up with that?

                        Sending prayers and well wishes for a quick (and hopefully cheap) resolution.

                        Hate it when bad things happen to good people. My mom always said the good lord just loves you so much to send you these things. My answer? Well, I wish He would love someone else for a while and give me a break!

                          YUCK.
                          April - first let me say that I'm very glad that you weren't on a highway when your car lost power - I'm grateful that you were somewhere that you could get to a safe spot
                          Praying that yesterday was just that - one day - and things will improve from here Hugs...
