Excuse me, have you seen 2014 around here anywhere?

So…um, this is awkward. I’ve been meaning to write an entry for awhile now and it looks like it’s been more than two months since I last did. Whoops. And here we are not only in 2015, but midway through the second month of 2015. Yeah sorry about that. I did get around to making […]

We’ve Gone Rogue

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 @ 1:11pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love, Photography and Pics |

As you may have read previously, Love was in a serious car accident the morning of Friday, August 1st on his way to work. He had a sudden, catastrophic brake failure and, unable to stop or swerve enough, he collided with the minivan in front of him at about 40-45mph. He came out of the […]

The Day the Element Died

Posted by miss m on Friday, August 1, 2014 @ 1:17pm in Blog, Car Issues, General Blather, Grief, Photography and Pics |

First off: Love is ok. The car, however is dead. It’s been a fucking morning from hell. My phone rang at 7am. I had been asleep 4 hours. It was my guy in a shaky voice telling me he was in an accident. I threw clothes on and drove to his work. (About 30 minutes […]

Hooray for May!

I can’t believe that (1) it’s May already and that (2) that means it’s also now less than two weeks until my birthday!! Eek! I’ll be a whopping 37 come May 16th. 😉 Meanwhile, today is the so-called, “Star Wars Day” (May the 4th be with you!) and Love and I spent the afternoon out […]

Love’s Birthday With A Side of Car Trouble

Posted by miss m on Thursday, February 20, 2014 @ 11:59am in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love |

Blarg. Tuesday (the 18th) was Love’s birthday. We’re a little broke right now so we didn’t have huge plans to do anything. We were hungry so I figured we could make a special trip out to this little hole in the wall place he went as a kid with his grandfather for lunch. Problem was, […]

Alright Universe, You Win

Posted by miss m on Friday, February 7, 2014 @ 2:55pm in Blog, Car Issues, Family, General Blather |

About once a week I head up to my Mom’s to help her with cleaning such as the vacuuming and mopping. She’s disabled and it’s hard for her and really wears her out. Since I work for myself I’ve got the time to help and I like going up and seeing her too. Yesterday I […]

15% Off Sale at PhoenixFire Designs – One Week Only

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 @ 5:14pm in Blog, Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love, PhoenixFire Designs |

Love’s car has been on the fritz and about two weeks ago, he “parked” it until we could save up for the repairs. In the meantime he’s been taking my car to work, leaving me stuck the apartment with no way to get out and do anything. It’s driving me crazy. We’re about halfway to […]

And There Went July

Posted by miss m on Monday, July 29, 2013 @ 12:02am in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Grief, kitties |

So…yeah. Another month [nearly] gone and only a lone entry thus far to mark it’s passage. That’s just sad. I’ve been meaning to write an entry for like two weeks now but it never seems like I have the time. Plus, summers are dull in Florida; all the locals hibernate from the sweltering heat and […]

Turkey Day Highs and Lows

Posted by miss m on Thursday, November 22, 2012 @ 10:34pm in Car Issues, Family, Holidays, kitties, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans! Hope you’ve had a nice day, hopefully with good food and friends/family. My day was one of those good and bad sorta things. Good Thing Love got up early this morning and did the 5k Turkey Trot. It’s a huge race they do in Clearwater (like 15,000 […]

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 21, 2012 @ 1:53pm in Car Issues, Finances, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics |

Just in time for the holidays, I need a new starter in my car. Awesome. It’s going to be $400 repair bill. So, I need to drum up some sales. You can get started on your holiday shopping and also help me get a starter all at the same time. (See how clever the title […]

It’s All About the Money

Posted by miss m on Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 11:43pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Good news is that we got Love’s car fixed Friday. We’re back to a two car household and the horrible, destructive whine of the compressor grinding itself to bits is no more. The bad news is that it cost more then we planned: $789.54 I had been planning on $700 so the extra hundred hurts. […]

4th Time the Charm?

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 @ 11:23am in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather |

If it’s true that Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, then it’s probably time for my white coat and padded room. Because I need to try and make something work that hasn’t been successful the past three very expensive attempts. Let me tell you about my Tuesday. The […]

Health Insurance

Posted by miss m on Monday, August 20, 2012 @ 12:31pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

We made a really good run at it. And it’s only through your support that I’ve been able to keep it going as long as I have. But I finally have to accept defeat and acknowledge I simply can’t pay my health insurance for August. For months, I’ve struggled to keep it going. It’s been […]

The Tale of the Power Window Regulator Assembly

Posted by miss m on Sunday, August 19, 2012 @ 11:10pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love |

The power window regulator assembly is this bow-looking bit that controls the power windows on a Honda Element. Looks like this: The problem with this part is that there’s a little plastic bit on it that tends to, well, break. And when it does, it loses all tension and the window falls down completely into […]

A/C Redemption?

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 @ 4:33pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather |

Talked to Wayne. He checked first to make sure the radiator fan and compressor fan did in fact need to be replaced. (Didn’t want to just take someone’s word on it.) And they did, so he replaced those. Then he checked out the a/c. Drained and flushed the system. Inspected it. Recharged it with freon. […]
