Desperate Plea

At the risk of having my 1999 Subaru Forester morphed into some suped up speed machine, I am putting the call out to these guys, and gal, from Overhaulin', to save my car.

My car, whose transmission blew this afternoon.

The transmission which was previously replaced in July. And then repaired again in September.

If you are a faithful reader I don't even need to link you back to the events of this summer. For you, this is like a bad film sequel: Transmission III: Stranded at Walgreen's.

I am numb.

And now I'm really not sure how to get the grocery shopping done that still hasn't happened since my run in at Aldi's.

So, I'm boldly putting out the call to the Next Food Network Star and Overhaulin'. I could use some meals for the freezer along with that transmission.

Thanks. I'll just wait here, trapped in my house. I'm the one sitting in the front window learning how to play my pink electric so that I can drown out my troubles with very loud songs.

Oh, and did I fail to mention that I got a few more bills from Humana today, denying some claims for Harper? Is there a show called,

We'll Fight Your Insurance Company For You, So Just Sit Back, Relax, and Let Us Take it From Here, Because You've Spent Way Too Much Time Attempting to Reach Someone Who Can Give You a Straight Answer As To Why They Won't Pay?

No? There should be. Time to pitch that one to the network. Though the title probably needs a little more work.

Cue primal scream.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could have one catastrophe at a time instead of a bushel basket full? "I try to take it one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at all at once" (paraphrase of Ashleigh Brilliant). I'm sorry about your car and the medical bills. Hang in there! Keep fighting the insurance company, and may He bless you in an incredibly moving way today. :)

Yikes! Do you need a car to use? We have one we're not using right now.

Angie, YES! What a sweet offer. I'll call you later today.

Fighting medical insurance companies takes serious chocolate! I'm dealing with mine to get pre-approved for a hysterectomy...I had hopes of already RECOVERING from it...apparently HIGH hopes. I feel your pain!
