Are you superstitious?

Well, I'm not a very supersitious person at all...but this past Friday was the 13th and well, it gave me a reason to start being a superstitious person.

See, what had happened husband had been looking for a vehicle for a while now. He's been driving my dad's old cadillac. He was embarassed by it and longing for another vehicle to drive. So, I told him if he wanted to use this years tax refund that he could buy a little something cheap just to get us by until he could get something nicer. Well, he found a 95 Isuzu Rodeo SUV and he loved it. We test drove it, looked all in it and really thought we looked it over well. Well, as soon as we got it home, it wouldn't crank. UGH! I was thinking, great, this is just our luck and on Friday the 13th as well. They told us that the battery cables needed to be replaced, so we had that head's up. We replaced both battery cables and the car still wouldn't crank. I take that back....sometimes it would crank and sometimes it wouldn't. So, my husband took it to a mechanic and they thought it could be the starter. Great, another $400 on top of what we just spent just yesterday for that stupid vehicle. I should have known better, I really should have. I told my husband that it was totally his choice on if he wanted to buy the car or not...he was like a kid at Christmas and really wanted it.

Anyway, all that to say, I'm becoming supersititous after all. I don't know what will happen to that dang vehicle and at this point I'm just frustrated beyond belief. I will never make any major purchases on a Friday the 13th again in my life. You sometimes wonder why junk like this happens to you. Because if it's gonna happen, I can guarantee you my life, I will be the one it happens too.

To top it all off last night, we went out to eat last night and our service was terrible...on Friday the 13th. We all ended up getting our meals for free. I mean nothing was going right last night, nothing.

So, there is my saga for this weekend...maybe it can only get better from here, who knows.
