Car Update

I didn't think it was going to turn out this way, but looks like we will be living with no car. Ben just got the call from the auto place that the car is dead. It needs a whole new engine which would cost more than what we paid for the car 2.5 years ago. Ben is trying to figure out how to get the car from the auto place to the junkyard so we can at least get money from it to cover the towing cost from last night. I am not sure how to even function without a car, but if anybody has suggestions let us know. How do you get groceries, pick up the kids from school if something happens, get to appointments and so on? I am going to look into cancelling Zak's class at the Y and Ben's volleyball at the Y since we won't be getting there anytime soon. Might also have to look into cancelling our membership.

I really wish tax time was closer...then we could get some sort of junk car to at least get around in. Another issue is that any car we do get our hands on needs to be big enough for us to all fit with the 2 car seats and of course automatic because I have failed at driving or attempting to drive stick shift cars several times.

Trying to remain positive...going to play with the boys and try to not think about it.
