The title of this journal entry is a line spoken by the great actress, Dame Judi Dench in the film, Chocolat. That line always struck a cord with me, because I'm a hardworking, stubborn woman who refuses to ask for help until she knows she has no other choice.
That time has come. I need help. More to the point, I need your help.
Here's the situation: My car, ButterBean, a 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser, is a lemon. I have poured nearly $4000 worth of repairs, and that equates to safety pins and baling twine, just to keep it running. Worse, I am what is called upside down on a loan. I can't get a new car until I pay off the loan I have now, but I also cannot afford to keep fixing it. Even just last night ol' BB had to get jumped because it died.
The only way I see getting out of this is to start a crowdfunding campaign. That's what I'm going to do. The full story is here: www.gofundme.com/cnaiu0
Read it through, donate if you can, and spread the word. I'm willing to act like a complete idiot on YouTube if that means ridding myself of ol' ButterBean forever!
