AUGH....LIFE is an Adventure!!

Today has been one of those days. I haven't had a day like this for a while so I guess it is my turn. I am normally not a complainer because after I'm done I always feel sick inside and wish I never had opened my mouth. But, sometimes it is good to let it out.
First, I drove into town to get eggs for rolls I was making and the truck I was using over heated and I was stuck. Our van has been in the shop and was informed today by my husband that it is going to cost $2800 to fix the transmission. WHO HAS $2800 TO FIX a 1999 Van?
Luckily, my husband's boss was letting him borrow a work truck so we were able to go pick up my van so I could get home before my girls got off the bus.
The van drove alright and hopefully will last long enough for us to find a good deal on a new (used) van.
Anyway, today I really wanted to cry. I worked hard at not crying.
Needless to say, I made it home before my girls and was glad of that.
I did say a prayer when I got home to let Heavenly Father know that I was sorry for murmuring and I know that the Lord has a plan for us. I do have FAITH that this will all work out and we will have what we need. I know this because the Lord has never failed us yet and we are extremely blessed. My husband still has a job and starting this month has started working three jobs so that we can get out of our stupid debt and start saving our money.
For this I am happy and have peace in my heart again. I really wasn't wanting to write this for sympathy or whatever. I just need to let it out. Thanks for letting me share!!

Don't think of it as murmuring or complaining....think of it as venting. Sometimes we just need to tell someone how we really feel about our problems and worries instead of putting on the brave face we usually wear. Usually, I feel so much better after having gotten things off of my chest. You are more than welcome to vent to me any time... :)

A venting is good sometimes! I know things will work out in the end - just keep going on....

I'm so sorry. There is nothing worse than a broken vehicle that is going to cost a lot to fix. I hope it works out. I don't know if this will help, but we are selling a Hyundai Elantra car 2003 for $3500. I'm sure you are needing a van though. Keep your chin up.

I hope you feel better soon! You've had a rough go of it lately!

Car troubles are the worse - why do they drive us so crazy!? I hope things work out for your family. I know this might sound cheesy, but this is a good time to count your blessings and you'll be amazed at how many you have. Hope tomorrow is better!
