Let Go….and Let God

or Buddha or Yahweh or Jehovah or whoever you believe in!

I have been stressing like crazy over money, no transportation, underemployment, etc. Last night I plain hit the wall after receiving an email from Dish Network that my contract with them had been ended due to non-payment.

At first my reaction was “I don’t care” which really wasn’t true. Then I realized something: I don’t have the money to pay them, I will not have the money to pay them in the near future, and really–for my mental health I have to NOT care. I simply cannot expend more physical or emotional energy on this if nothing will change.

So after letting go and letting God…..today I got a nibble on my room for rent (http://bend.craigslist.org/roo/2456521208.html) and 3 nibbles on my truck for sale (http://bend.craigslist.org/cto/2486385318.html). When I went out to the truck to check the miles on it (155,420) the sucker actually started and I drove around for a few minutes. I had assumed that it had died for good months ago. I have to say that I still don’t trust it and will still be selling it.

Rant start (warning warning LOL)

And by the way, if you are interested in the truck but think that $4500.00 is a bit much to ask for a truck that may or may not run……Kelly Blue Book value is $4700.00 in a private sale (not trade in with a dealer) for this model with these features and mileage (doesn’t include the canopy as it was aftermarket anyway). Fixing it (a new voltage regulator) would cost $50.00 or so if you do the work yourself and probably $200.00–$250.00 if you have a mechanic do it.

I researched everything before I put it up for sale. Being female doesn’t automatically mean being intelligence-challenged when it comes to car values, the cost of parts, and the cost of mechanic labor. The price is negotiable but please don’t insult my intelligence with a really lowball offer!

Rant over. We now return you to your regularly scheduled whining. LOL.
