broken stuff???

we go through cycles where a number of things we own, break. we just paid $400 + dollars to fix the honda to make it workable...it needed double that to make it good good again. but we didn't do that. my hair dryer smells like burning, our camera won't stay on for more than a minute recently, the tire on our jogging stroller kept going flat (even after we replaced it)....and my mixer had rust on the beaters the last time i got it out to use. had to chuck it. lame. it's not unexpected, we are nearing the end of our college career and kendall's dad has already guessed that our two BMs (blessing mobiles=cars) are going to kick it for good the minute after kendall graduates. i just hope nothing else goes the way of all the earth before we can afford to replace it...it's funny how this does happen, like clockwork, i am very intrigued why that is....does it happen to you too????

blessing mobiles...too funny.
We were fortunate enough to have to trade in our Passat during graduate school. It was a great car to us, but to much $ to keep it going for as long as we needed one. When we traded it in, the dealers just laughed at it, likethey couldn't believe we were still driving it!
Anyway, it is soooo nice knowing that a car is not something we will have to worry about during these first few years of meical school since we have a warranty. But I see the day coming when this car will putt putt along to graduation, or end of residency or whatever....
Is it really time for Kendall to grauduate? how lucky!!!

Yes, that happens to us too! It is so annoying! My hairdryer smells the same way right now...bummer. I hope all your gadgets and cars last as long as possible!

Sounds about right. It happened to us too. Don't be surprised if you get an unexpected bill in the mail. It's all part of the plan!

But the thought of buying 2 new vehicles...ugh!

Our car went to car heaven last year, but there is plenty of broken stuff like our DVD player passed away. Luckily Santa replaced it. Then there is Colby's laptop that is looking really WELL LOVED shall we say. I think it's somewhat of an antique as electronics go. HOORAH for endurance to the finish!!
