    I do the turkey on the stove top, but beef broth in the crock. The turkey doesn't fit in the crock and takes less cooking. The beef bones I keep in the crock pot for at least 48 hours.

    So sorry about the zombie mode, that is so hard to overcome, hopefully an early night tonight or as canio6 said a relaxing weekend.

    The only mechanics that I know of who listen to me when something is wrong with a car are Clint and his friends. It sucks that most male mechanics won't listen to women. I think its awesome that this industry is employing more women in the field and they do amazing work. Maybe there will be service in the future.

    Every time I've gone in for something on my car, it's been "I'm reasonably certain it's this. Check it first. If that's not it, call me so I can make the decision before you fix it." I've never been wrong yet.

    Uh Oh. I am starting to shop for a new car. I looked up "best, least expensive cars". Made a wish list and started looking online at local dealers.
    Note to Self: You cannot buy a new car until the end of June 2013!!!!

    In the end, I will have just put $1000.00 into the PT Cruiser. We will be done paying off our van in January. I wanted to go as long as we could without a car payment. Even so, I feel an impulse buy coming on. So tired of fixing this car even if it was my Mom's.

    Funny Story: When I called the mechanic to let him know about the car, he actually sighed. LOL

    I feel your pain for car issues. I expected to have mine back today but I am stuck in the rental over the weekend. Hopefully I get my car Monday.

    OK car peeps, here is the news. It is a blown head gasket. The mechanic said, "Not good. It could be a big (expensive) job" I could tell that he thinks I should give up on this car.

    Damnit. Just when I thought we would be getting ahead.

    Yeah, blown head gasket on a Chrysler means run for the hills. Anyway you could get a cheap used vehicle for the time being?

    Clint works for a Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep dealer and would tell you not to buy a car from them at all period. He actually advises people for new cars to purchase a Ford or a Honda. Do not get a Kia, Hyundai, etc. They are crap.

    I'm not even sure I could get a car loan because our credit is garbage. We have no money in savings. I'm beginning to feel mighty depressed.

    I will save you the explanation of head gaskets and what a broken one means. It is a crummy failure. That's what we're fixing on my Mustang and what happened to my parents' car a couple of weeks ago (when they finally gave up on it and bought a new car).

    The answers will come. Just get through today for now. You can't do anything about the car for the moment, right? So let it sit.
