A YAY and a few Boo's!!

First the YAY!  Today's color challenge is my favorite combination......RED, black and white.  No problem there.  Now for the bad news :

It's snowing.  RATS!  I forgot how much I really hate the stuff.  I will have to go out in it today to get my car, which is at the repair shop.

Now the REALLY BAD NEWS :  My 10 year old van, which I really love, needs $3000.00 worth of work.  Guess how much it's worth?? YUP. $3000.00. Figures, right?  So now I have to get a new car.  Merry Christmas to me.  I would rather put a sharp stick in my eye than have to go car shopping!  Boy, do I hate that.  The salesman always asks what you want, and all I want is a car that starts and stops when I want it to.  I don't care what color, or what snazzy features, just a darn car.  I'll keep you posted as to how long I'll be in a snit over this.  Hope your day is better than mine!!

  2. I'm in pretty much the same predicament...my 1995 Taurus needs a transmission ($1800) ... the car is worth $2000 - but I'm not buying another car! We have a 2001 Dodge Dakota pick up and I love driving that truck so I have claimed it and hubby is driving the 2008 Taurus :) Good luck car shopping!!!

  3. Bwahahaha - oh I needed a good laugh! So sorry you have to replace your car but oh what a great monologue! I love the "in a snit" line the best!!

    Oh yeah - almost forgot your fabulous card~ love the embossed focal image!! You have a great Holiday!!

    I have heard buying a Saturn is the easiest purchase you can make - walk in see the price buy it - they put the lowest on their sticker so there is no negotiating, and the maintenance coverage is really good -- just FYI~~ Good Luck!!

  6. well...I totally understand your 'snit' cuz I am in a 'snit' of my own related to cars....today I was driving home from the pool, minding my own business when a man backed right out and INTO MY CAR.....not MAJOR damage....but just enough to have to deal with some body work and time wasted...IYKWIM....luckily we were both fine, but I am surely having a bit of a bah humbug moment....

    anyhoooo...your red and white creation gave me a smile...so lovely in our RED
