...wow...today couldn't get any better.

*yes, that title was chock-full of sarcasm*

So I wake up today, like any other normal day. I have some health related issues stuff on my mind...that's all I will say on that note...(all is fine, seriously...no worries...ok? So we have that.

It was a looonnnnggg morning...so I go take my lunch break...a much needed break from the monotony of spec and change order typing...I eat my lunch in peace, actually sitting in the shade on a green hill just outside of Walmart. After eating I decide to take a trip inside Walmart to pick up something. As I come back out, I try to start my car...

*turning key in the ignition* click...phhhummmpp giiissss...click
Nothing.

"Ok, let's try this again."

click...phhhummpp giisss phummmpp giiissss giiiissssssssss...click
Nothing.
*lights on dash begin to flicker and fade*

"You gotta be kidding me?!" *rubbing the steering wheel and petting the dashboard* "Come on little girl...you are ok, just start for me."

*tries again to turn the key in the ignition* hhhuuurrruuuummpp
Nothing.

"Ok...so that's how it's gonna be huh?! Nice." *picks up phone and calls the hubby*

Ok - so now to spare you the detailed play-out of the hour, let's just say this:
  • One jump from a co-worker = unsuccessful
  • One jump from some car battery jumper machine with Father-in-law and hubby = unsuccessful
  • One jump from diesel-double batter in FIL's massive truck = successful.

So I headed back to work with above mentioned co-worker. I hear from my hubby a short while later that it is most likely my alternator. Which in all honesty, means absolutely nothing to me. All I know is that it is covered under warranty with Nissan and he is on his way to get it fixed *fingers crossed*

So...yeah. Today has been awesome. Am I done yet?

Dude - sounds like a rough day, but honestly? You don't have to pay a dime, and you got to spend some time outside in the gorgeous weather today. I know it's stressful sometimes, but at least it's not going to cost you and you got some fresh air for a while, right?

Right!

So the end of the story is it wasn't the alternator. It was the battery and it cost us $102.00 to get the vehicle fixed. That was done by days end.

Let's just go back to the days of horse and buggy. Wouldn't have to worry about gas prices and if something happens to the horse, you just use another one from the barn!!!! Less work and probably less money overall!
