Grr... or rather lack of grr at this point!
My car is on the fritz, but it is trying valiantly to do it's thing.
I discovered about a month ago, during the excruciating cold these MN winters grace us with, that my heater flew south with all the little birdies. Let me tell ya 40 below is co-o-o-ld in a car spewing half cool air from the vents! brr.
Luckily, I have one of those hubby's who's mechanically inclined. A peek here and a listen there and he says, it's gotta be the thermostat, no problem. All the while of course the dollar signs are running through my head faster than the gas pump I'd used earlier. He assured me though that is was "no biggie" to fix, very cheap.
Know what, it was very cheap. Less than twenty bucks and I'm again toasty warm while I take the kidlet to school....cool!
Now, anyone out there with car issues is probably shaking their heads and saying sure Serena, where's the but? LOL
Here's the but...now the darn vehicle decides it doesn't want to idle!!! It kills at every light, has no pick up, but it is toasty warm! ~silver lining and all~
No amount of erotic promise keeps this baby running and erotic author that I am, I've offered it plenty. Every thing from a nice long gas nozzle strategically placed to a pleasurable beating at the end of my stick. Nothing works.
My hubby's been tinkering, but as good as he is, this one is just not resolving easily. So I caved and took her into the car doctor today and I guarantee that by the end of the day I'm going to be wishing that I'd given some serious thought to becoming an Auto Mechanic!
