Yeah, yeah, laugh it up but I am so beyond serious.
I am not the kind of person who makes snap decisions.
Ok, I am not the kind of person who makes snap decisions anymore.
And as I have mentioned I had only put a few minutes thought into the next car I was going to buy and it was supposed to be a Freestyle.
I like the Freestyle.
It suits me.
It's practical and perfect.
And it is what I fucking wanted.
But no, there were no Freestyles in my area or my price range.
So what did I do?
Started looking for something else.
And then what happened?
I got carried off into Lusting After Cars I Neither Need Nor Can Afford Land.
And normally, it's ok to go there because you can come back after you've been shook back into reality.
But I don't have time for all this traveling.
I have to give my rental car back on Saturday or start paying for it.
And I don't want to pay for a butt ass ugly Taurus.
And who the fuck named it a "Taurus"??? What about that boring ass car made them think "Ooooh! I know, we'll name it after a bull?"

I decided last night to buy the Pacifica.
I like it.
It's hot.
And it's more than I can afford.
But while I was visiting Lusting After Cars I Neither Need Nor Can Afford Land, I picked up a nice bucket of Rationalization Dust and whenever I start to think, "Hey, Kate, that's a BAD idea." I just sprinkle some into the air and all is right again.
So, I emailed my seller last night and told him I wanted it and to please send me a complete total including all fees.
Well with fees, it was an extra $1400 smackeroos and that was already on top of 2k I didn't want to spend.
So, I decided 3400 bucks over my spending limit was too much and told him as much.
And do you know what he finally decides to tell me?
Get this, he says he can get me the Freestyle for the price I want to spend TOTAL, that is, including ALL FEES.
Well, whythefuck didn't you say so a few god damned days ago?
Huh car seller guy, huh???
So, he has said I may have to give up my dreams of a dvd player to accomplish it, but I am ok with that because I AM SICK AND TIRED OF LOOKING AT CARS ONLINE ALL FUCKING DAY.
So hopefully this whole bullshit saga will be over with soon.
*fingers crossed*

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
