Car Confessions

Today I’m linking up with one of the funniest bloggers I know, Kim from Mom go Something Something.

She’s also one of the bravest!

I heart her.

I’m also providing you with a guest post!

Two for one! Crazy right!

Enjoy.

I know you’ve all heard of me. Leighann has talked about me on the twitter, she’s mentioned me casually in conversations, but she doesn’t really give credit where credit is due.

I was a huge part of her life.

We were together every day for a minimum of an hour. A minimum.

Singing together, enjoying coffee, and eating delicious treats eagerly before we reached our destination so we wouldn’t have to share.

Creating memories.

Road trips on a whim, shopping endlessly on weekends, and making the transition from a childless woman to a mother.

People change.

Priorities change.

I wasn’t her priority anymore.

My once shiny paint began to chip and rust and the car wash visits became further and further apart.

Trips to the mechanic for an oil change became scattered, unscheduled and then not at all.

I begged her to take me.

I coughed, sputtered, stalled.

Her mind was elsewhere.

I wanted her attention badly, I missed her and the time we spent together, her hands gliding over the wheel, the sound of her voice filling the car with the song that played on the radio, my engine purring along.

So I dropped my muffler.

I needed her to care.

She fixed me.

Because she did care.

But it wasn’t the same. Her touch wasn’t the same, her voice was irritated, and my once clean floor was now littered with toys, cups, and sticky liquids that I couldn’t identify.

I was growing tired of trying.

She was tired of fixing me.

Of fixing us.

So I did the only thing I could think of.

I ended it.

There you have it.

A guest post by my car.

I’m still waiting to find out from the insurance company if they are fixing it or just writing it off.

It’s a 2004 with 300,000 km on it.

It was a sad car.

But.

I loved it.

    awww…. I recently had to let go of my precious car. The one that carried my babies home from the hospital. The one that carried me back to the love of my life after making the huge mistake of leaving him for five months. Boo… it’s hard to give up a member of the family. Terrific confession!

    Now I’m off to write mine.

      You have written the story of my life. My car brought my baby home it also helped me drive away from my love for four months while we sorted things out. Sigh

    I started laughing so hard when I realized who your “guest poster” was! I ended it – so funny! Poor car.

    And 300k km? That’s what…180k miles? My 2004 has 72k. But then again I’m chained to my house.

    As one who has been here with hail damage..

    My guess is “total”. Cars diminish in value so quickly while auto costs are ridiculous – it’s very easy to go over the car’s value.

    I love your “guest post”. Clever.

    What about the hail? No mention of how you cared so little you left it exposed to elements.

      I hope my car understood I had to leave it exposed while I was driving back and forth to work.

      I have a feeling they’re going to write it off. It’s not worth much.

    Love how you told that story, but terribly sorry about your poor car. 300,000 km?! I’d say it had a good life.

      This is what I’d say too. My father? He says there’s more life in it. He’s where I get my budgeting and deal seeking from.

    I totally know the feeling. My poor car is a disaster now. It looks like someone lives in it, which, of course, I basically do.
