Response to Frugal January Day 17

My Explorer got to where it could not be driven. We were pouring radiator fluid into it every other day. At $12 a bottle, it was becoming pricey as is, but by this weekend, it just was smoking like crazy any time we drove it. So, $800 later....I still need to put in a new transmission. That's another $1800-2500. Never did go look at cars. Am sewing a quilt for my 28 year old niece who just found out she has stage four breast cancer that has spread to her liver, bones, and spine. I am making her a Cancer-Kickin, Cold-Conquerin, Chemo Comfort Quilt. At least, that's what I named it.

I'm feeling rather down. I quit my diet, bought donuts, ate the donuts, and bought a couple pairs of elastic waist pants in the next size up. Not a good frugal day for me. AT. ALL.

Blessings,

Bethann
