  I hear ya! I’m so sorry for that happening. I know it seems the biggest things happen at the worst time. Right now we are down to just my car and even though we have never had any problems with it, yesterday I was at a stop light when it decided to shake right there in the middle of the road like it was going to fall to pieces. I still owe on this car so it better not die now! Keep up the faith hun! Somehow everything always does and will work out!!!

Car problems are AWFUL! And soooooo expensive some times. Fingers crossed for you that it’s a minor repair!

I had a car that ate coolant like it was no one’s business. I would just keep on top of it (if that’s the problem), and top it up at least once a week. If you see that it’s overheating, blast your heater, pull over, let it cool off, check your coolant. I always kept a spare bottle or two in the trunk. Hopefully it’s just a leak in your hose and no big issues. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!!!

Ugh. I am so sorry. I am all too versed in car-issues. We seem to have the worst luck with cars. (Though I know it’s not luck, it’s the fact we can only afford used junker cars, which are of course going to crap out faster.)

Once, our car broke down about 50 miles from my parent’s house, when Fiance was driving there (I’d taken the train home a few days earlier). On Christmas Eve/Christmas morning. That was an *expensive* towing bill.

I hope you’re not without a car too long!!

I am saying a prayer that it is repaired quickly and cheaply.

It’s always something, isn’t it?  We always had car problems when I was young – my parents were always getting stuck or broke down or whatever.  When money is tight, cars eat up a lot of it!

Good luck to you and I’m sending good mojo your way!  I’m so glad your Fiance has a good sense of humor!  We were very poor growing up but were still so happy and close!  How you deal with these things makes a world of difference!
