So yeah... This year has been GREAT. 2016's newest victim is our only vehicle.
Can't get the Blazer out of the driveway... Find out the battery is close to dead, go to pop the hood to check the belts and jump start and THE HOOD WON'T OPEN.
On top of something that is making a grinding noise, several warning lights, needing a brake job, and needing ICE TIRES.
Oh, did I mention I was headed to the post office to MAIL OFF OUR INSURANCE PREMIUM SO WE CAN TREAT MY HUSBAND'S CANCER?!?!?!
Yeah... We need a new truck. Can we afford a new truck, and rent, and bills? Of course we can't. Do we need a truck to do things like get to the frickin cancer center for treatment and the pharmacy and the bank and to get food? Yes, yes we do.
Will getting the Blazer fixed cost as much as getting another vehicle? Yes, yes it will.
So, WE NEED ANOTHER VEHICLE.
Fuck you 2016, fuck you very much.
I've still got the GoFundMe up and running, and PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org always works.
