    NUUUUUU!!!!!!!


    My transmission is out and needs to be totally replaced. It will cost $1300. I have nowhere near that amount and no visible means of procuring it. :cry:

    Come on seasonal help peoples! Call me back for an interview already!

    Probably going to have to just save up for a new car, but I love my car. It gets 40 MPG on the highway and it's a wagon. I'm not gonna be able to find anything like that.

    I know I think mine is going out too ... Shoot! Why to these things always happen when I have no money? I'm not for sure it's going out but I have a terrible feeling its "getting old"

    I don't like when everyone around me is like YAY FRIDAY. YAY WEEKEND. And I am like... yeah I don't get one of those this week.... go cheer and celebrate somewhere else.

    I could have M-F off and it would not matter - this girl wants Saturday and Sunday off!!

    My mom used to give me a spoonful of sugar to cure the hiccups. Fact. It actually worked.

    I also got really good at fake hiccups.

    :rofl1: I think they went away. Probably from tiredness.

    There's my vent for the day. FAR too early to be awake and out and functioning.

    I don't know why I keep asking DH's opinion on dog-related stuff. He always says my ideas are just stupid or something.

    I asked him which sounded better for a youtube name, because I need something catchy: Zander'sLyzelle or LyzelleAndZander.

    He said both of them were stupid.

    TheTravelingHusky

    Equally stupid, apparently. I thought it was cute.

    Yeah, I think that's a pretty accurate display of my entire time with Zander. And he wants his own dog. :thumbdown:

    Maybe I'll just create a new thread and ask Chazzers for their opinions.

    Alcohol + feeling unhappy does not equal a good thing. Trying to go to sleep last night was horrible.

    You may have already mentioned it in another thread, but is there any reason you can't move in with Mike now? It would probably be cheaper, and you seem miserable with your current situation.

    :rofl1: Tipper much enjoys barking at me in the kitchen. I think she considers that helping.
