Bad Car, Really Bad Car

So, on Saturday I bragged about my lovely car making it to 100,000 miles with no major issues. Guess what!?!?!? Stinking car won't start now. Hoping it was the battery, my sweet friends Brian and Jessica drove over and tried to jump it for me. It didn't budge. So tomorrow morning I will be arising with the sun, calling the Honda place, then calling a towing company. Thankfully I have towing insurance. Now I'm just praying it won't cost an arm and a leg for the repairs. Maybe I should go vacuum it out though so at least it will be clean when it goes in for surgery...after all, everyone and everything should look their best before their insides are worked on. Or maybe I'll just let the cantankerous old cuss go into the shop looking like she does. Serves her right!

So did it go dead on you at work? That's kinda crazy...mine is @ 98K and I'm hoping it'll make it just fine when it get to the "over the hill" stage, but I'm worried since it has a Ford logo on it. :)

Nope...thankfully it died in the driveway. My dad has graciously volunteered to come down here and replace the battery. At least I brought my laptop home so I can work from here in the morning...and I can show off the new vacuum to my dad! :-)
