trying not to be crabby

April 1st, 2005 at 07:30 am

I was pretty crabby yesterday after figuring out how much I couldn't spend on a car. That made it easy for my boyfriend to convince me that Dippin Strips from Pizza Hut would be a good option for dinner. and gooooooodd it was...only $13 out of my checkbook, but still. *sigh* Will I never learn? My diet disappeared yesterday, yet again.

Tonight we're going over to a friend's house for wine and games, and probably Indian takeout. I brought lettuce for lunch in an effort to counteract the calories I'll be consuming tonight. I had homemade yogurt for breakfast...yum!

I got 10 hours of sleep last night, so you'd think I'd be in better spirits today. I'm still a little down. Hopefully tonight's festivities will bring me out of this funk. (and my friend has cats at her house!!! god, I miss living with cats)

    Hope you have fun tonight. Smile I was in a funk last Friday, and having a friend over for dinner made a world of difference in my mood. Hope the same holds true for you.

    Sorry to hear about your car troubles. The car I have right now ended up taking me 7 YEARS to finally pay off and I shudder to think how much I ACTUALLY paid for it in the end. In your situation, especially with such a commute, could either of your parents co-sign a loan with you (or I guess the question would be, would they be willing to do that?) It's not ideal, but at least that way you might be able to get a car that is reliable, and that you "know" from the begining. I think Kia's are right around the 11K range (not sure exactly what they have "in" them though.) Also, if you go to church, you should check and see if there aren't any elderly women or men who might have a car that they haven't driven much, and can't really use much anymore. That's how I got my first car. It was a Hundayi 91' with 13K miles on it, in PERFECT condition(in July of 94'). I was able to pay cash for it at the time. Then I drove it for three years, and "sold" it to my parents, who then co-signed on the loan for my current car (a Honda Civic 97' which now has 72,300 miles!).

    Hope you feel better soon!
