Attn: Midlanders

Where's the cheapest gas in Midland? Anything cheaper than $1.94 at Wal-mart?

Finally got her to work!

She's working now. And she's working good. And because she's working, I've been riding her everyday! MY TRUCK FINALLY WORKS! I can now stop borrowing my dads car and riding the EZ Rider. I put in a new fuel pump, fuel filter, alternator, battery, and cables, and found out the problem the whole time was likely a loose cable that kept tricking everyone I took it too. The first place I brought it said the fuel pump (because the fuel pump wasn't kicking on because it was getting no juice because of the loose cable). I replaced the fuel pump ($40) and it didn't start up (little did I know that the fuel pump I bought was defective to begin with so I spent another $80 on having someone else put a new one in). So I replaced the fuel filter (because besides a dead battery, the #2 reason a car won't start is the fuel filter). Then, the battery wasn't holding a charge (maybe because of the loose cable, but we brought the battery back and they tested it and said it was a dud). So after a new battery, had another guy look at it and said the alternator. So I replaced the alternator ($125) and was still having problems. This time I started looking around everything myself and looking at what would be wrong. I was tired of all these second and third opinions that weren't matching. THE PROBLEM ALL ALONG WAS A LOOSE CABLE! The fuel pump may have been bad, but may not have been. Who knows. All I know is it works now and it better work for a long time.

I wish cars could talk.

Heck of a deal

I am in the market for a digital camera and a photo printer. Today I found the best deal at Circuit City for my printer. I bought a brand new in the box HP PS7350, a $149.99 printer, for the great low price of $22.96. When I saw this deal I could not pass it up. Now I am looking for a really good deal on a digital camera. Anyone know of any great deals?

It's green!

Doesn't it look really good around Midland now because of all the recent rains? The fields are actually green. I love spring in West Texas. There are som many fields of different color flowers (weeds) and it just makes our area look a lot better.

I'm back!

I am finally up and able to the blog! I do not wish what I had to go through on anyone. I hate throwing up. And doing it all night nearly every 30 minutes while I'm trying to sleep. UGH. But I'm over it now. And I'm back to bloggin'.

I've got a virus :-(

Yes I got a virus last night. But not a computer virus or anything. My whole family has the stomach virus, started with my brother and I was the last to get it. Last night I had a great night sleep! Woke up about every 1/2 hour to either vomit or dry heave. I couldn't even drink a glass of water without it coming back up 15 minutes later. So I just want to sleep until I get better so no school, work, or blogging until I recover.
