Psychic Cars...

It really never fails, it happens nearly every year so you'd think I wouldn't be so shocked when it happens but just about every year around tax time my cars decide to either die a horrible death or need a major repair.

This year after only about 4 years of use, my minivan has started to fall apart. Hubby took it to go grab some dinner last weekend and the driver's side window decided to no longer roll up and we have power everything in the van.

Our "new" (new to us) truck wouldn't start so Dan called a tow truck to have it taken in and fixed. Turns out that the anti-theft alarm got triggered and so as a precaution it wouldn't start, not even with the key. And the clicker buttons are broken so we were stuck.

I was going to donate the van to this car donation called CarAngel, which you can even donate online and they take care of all the formalities like the title transfer and everything. They use the donations to raise funds to make children's and anti-drug videos. They have given away over 2.4 million videos, I think it sounds like a pretty decent concept.

I was just watching one of their videos on Youtube with my 4 & 5 yr olds, they thought it was pretty cute. I have to agree.. it was pretty cute.

Anyway, Dan actually ended up selling the van to a co-worker which helped pay for the cost of the truck repairs so it worked out pretty well. Except now we are down to one car and a motorcycle, so it's going to be hard to go anywhere together. Oh well.. maybe I'll get my dream van soon. Wishful thinking I know.

Anyway- I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend. Tomorrow is my birthday so I know I'm going to have a great weekend.

Catch you all Monday!
