I finally remembered to bring my camera so here are some pictures of what is in store for you when you walk through their door.
The whole time we were in this store, we were both dreaming about the old home we hope to own one day. Now we know a good place to go for certain items!
Now, our adventure didn’t end there, unfortunately! We left, walked to the car, got in, and bam… nothing! My good old car was dead. She didn’t even try to start. She was gone and without ANY sort of warning I might add.
Now, luckily we had jumper cables and another customer walked out just in time so they offered to help. We attached everything and still nothing. Not even a spark. She didn’t want to be revived!
Let me add something real quick- We have been talking about getting a new car for a while now, a GMC Terrain to be exact. And we would be trading in my car (2002 Saturn) for the new vehicle.
Last weekend, we finally found a dealership with a Terrain for us to test drive. We loved it. Talked about it the whole ride home. Well… we were driving my car that day so she had to sit at the dealership and watch us swoon over a new car. We kept joking that maybe we shouldn’t take the car to see what she will be replaced with or she is going to rebel. HAHA! Little did we know!
But back to the story.
So now what? We are 40 mins from home in a new part of Louisville so we have no idea what is around here to get a new battery. Well luckily we notice there is a car place just up the street. YES!
Travis takes the battery out and we walk there. Go in and they test the battery. Yep- it dead. Do they have a new battery- nope. CRAP!
We ask for a phone book. They tell us there is an Auto Zone on the same street but on the West side. Of course we were on the East. They give us the address and we leave.
Now, how are we going to get to this Auto Zone you ask? Bus or taxi.
We choose taxi.
We get the number for the taxi service, get picked up, drive to Auto Zone, buy a new battery, go back to the car and replace it. Said a little prayer and turned the key.
She started but I don’t think she wanted to because I had to try twice.
Needless to say, we had a nice heart to heart talk with Sadie (yes, I name my car) on the drive home about warning us before she decides to do that again and that if we get rid of her it isn’t because we don’t love her, we just want something bigger and that someone else will get her and love her just as much.
Let’s hope she understands… at least until we get a new car!
