bad luck lately, and getting screwed over...

I have been so busy so I haven't spent much time with books, and I really miss them, and talking with all of you about my adventures jn readjng.


Well, my luck has been sucky. I put my new to me used chrysler 300m into the shop to have the battery replaced. It died on me at the library. There was a tire, alignment, and battery shop right next door. I figured just let them do it because it was convenient. The hubby isn't too happy with me about this considering he is an auto mechanic, but he is swamped right now with a transmission and dropping a new motor in this awesome old ass barracuda someone young guy brought in. When the idiot tire tech put my battery in, he didn't check to make sure the ground was still connected to my frame. Pop! There went my ECM, better known as the computer to the car. Errrr! They tried to deny responsibility until my hubby called a friend who happens to be a master mechanic for chrysler. I ended up just having them refund my money for the battery because I got so tired of arguing with them about it. Now my hubby gets to mess with the electrical wiring and components in my car, he least favorite thing to dig into. 


On top of that, I have 30 days to move. I have money, just none that I can easily get my hands on. There will be a 90 day gap between when my new home (if I end up going with a modular home) and when I have to be out. I went this morning and looked at some one bedroom efficiency apartments that rent by the week. One place looked promising because there is a single room suite that is available too, and it has an attatched door to the one bedroom. We could even fit in the one bedroom the way it is set up. It has Murphy beds and two roll out sofas. Ugh... it is going to be a pain with kids. I can't find a place to rent that doesn't want a year long lease.
