Hi everyone,
this isnt how I wanted to start this thread but here goes, I just arrived back home from picking up my car.  It is really pretty and I have already had several people comment on it on my way home.  It truly is a blast to drive, it drives so smooth.
 
 
Smooth enough that I just got my first speeding ticket today.  I was cruising down the interstate, listening to my music not really watching out for staties after all I usually talk my way out of them.  Not today though.  Long story short, when i past him i guess he clocked me at 105. When i went by him i didnt slow down so he called for backup thinking I was going to run.  Needless to say after an exciting police chase, I was issued a ticket for speeding.  He only wrote it for 90 because he said that i was already 30 over and if he put the speed, I would have had my car impounded and went jail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Needless to say I was very lucky, you can best believe I am going to get my ohio patrol stickers back on my car.
 
I know I know, I should not be driving that fast I know, I have always been a gear-head.  But I will have to slow down now.
 
It was a long trip and I didnt have any problem with my old car at all.  When I took all my things out I did cry I felt like I was abandoning it.  Pathetic, huh???
 
Well got to go put laundry away.  Mentally I did ok the whole trip, teared up a couple times on certain songs.
I got a pic of my car!!!  Let me know if you want to see it.  Can I post it on this topic yeah
Let me know

Teresa!

I can't preach cause you know you should not have been driving that fast,but you have to admit that even though you have a nice ticket to pay, it did feel good!

I really think that you were enjoying your time out and being free for awhile... that sucks that you got caught though ;(

Im not sure whether you measure speed in MPH or KPH in the US but if its MPH... I cant really lecture you since I have been clocked at 96-MPH (And thats what went on the ticket as well! lol) Im glad your new car works properly and that you FULLY road tested it! lol. Is it red?

Yeah I for sure can't lecture at all.

Right after my divorce was final,I took a trip alone for the first time in my life. I got a nice speeding ticket in another state..but,I just paid it and moved on..as it was a moment of freedom!

Hi everyone,
Yes I did think I was Mario Andretti for a minute then I remembered that I was on the interstate not in the 500, lol.
 
It did feel good going that fast but I have noticed that you can get to 80mph before you know it, that is what is going to be hard:(.
 
It is a beautiful day here I think it is like 60 out.  As usual I am in the house, thinking about going out and sitting on the swing, not sure.  I am a little depressed today I think because of all the motorcycles going by my house.  I have to say it is getting easier though.  I know for a fact that I probably dont even cross his mind anymore, after all, he has everything he wants and I think he is happy, in fact Im sure he is.  My heart is starting to heal with the thought of him not caring about me anymore. Does it hurt, yea but I picture him everyday laughing and enjoying life without me, how can he do that?  I will be fine I guess.
 
My car is great and I DO love it.
 
Well just wanted to say hi.
 
5 DAYS UNTIL THE BIG 43!!!!!!

Hi Teresa,

Im so happy for you (and your car! lol). The heart does heal itself... for some it takes longer than others because people keep hurting it but when the pressure is off and the dust has settled... it heals itself.

Keep cruising! (At the speed limit of course! lol)

Hi guys,
this car has really lifted my spirits, although it has been beautiful and warm so I do miss my convertible confused    but then I remember that it was on its last leg.  I will have another convertible some day.
 
NO MY CAR IS NOT RED--------WHITE!  I thought white cars were less conspicuious to law enforcement,lol.  never got a ticket in my red or green car, lol
 
I get so many compliments on it, there are not many of this make of car so it does stand out a little bit, I DO LOVE IT!!!!
 
I am going to go and visit my sister as soon as I can, I cant wait to see her again.

I don't know why I thought your car was red, but anyway, I am so glad that you love it. What kind of a car is it? You said that there aren't many made.

I hope you continue to feel good. And I hope you get to see your sister soon. But you don't want another speeding ticket, so be careful.

It is so wonderful to hear that you are so happy. As always you are in my thoughts and in my prayers.

Enjoy your day

Hugs, Karen

LOL I think the whole red car thing was my fault!!! I suggested it might be red since its a sports car (McClaren and Ferrari both use red!) and it seems to have stuck! I am sorry tongue

White cars are great but you have to clean them so often! Thats the only thing I have against them really. I too am interested in what car it is... especially if its a rare one!

I am so glad that you finally got that over with,and now you can move on to other things.

Your spirits seem to have lifted overnight!

Hey guys,
I have had a couple rough days.  Well as my luck would have it, my car you know something else I love, probably wont be mine much longer.  I took it to a hyundai garage to have a couple things fixed and here the vehicle has had extensive front damage and they cannot even repair the small things I brought it there for.  Long story short, I guess I will have to either get a lawyer or something.  I feel like a complete idiot, I have talked to the dealer and he says he can fix it, YEA RIGHT,  I am letting ebay know as well.  I cant help but think that if I had someone with me that knew what to look for, I would not be in this mess.  Here I was so thrilled that I had accomplished this myself.  Guys it is bad how much I love this car, I talk to it all the time and yesterday it rained so I rescheduled my appt that I had today from yesterday.  The last time I felt this way about a vehicle was when I had my Lexus.
 
I have been extremely tired the last month.  I experience anxiety attacks when I think of certain things.  With what happened today, really depressed.
 
My baby is a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon GT/Special Edition, it is sooooo pretty!
 
Anyway, tomorrow is my birthday and I am onve again celebrating another holiday alone.
 
I bought the Tiburon for myself for my birthday, so much for that.

Hi Teresa,

I am so mad, I just typed a long post to you and lost it.  I would definately talk to your lawyer about the car, there is something called a lemon law that may protect you.  I hope that you can at least get your money back so you can buy another car. 

We live and we learn Teresa.  We learn for these expiences and know what to do and what not to do.  Maybe next time you can take the vehicle to a reputable garage and have them take a look at it.  That way you will have some idea what you are in for.  But I think it is terrible when we are taken advantage of.  That often happens to women, so don't beat yourself up over it.  It isn't the end of the world, though it might feel like it at the time, I know.  Things will get brighter.  What is wrong with it?  Is it drivable?  Is it something with the front end alignment or front end as in engine?  I am clueless when it comes to things like that, was it in a wreck or something before you bought it? 

I hope that your lawyer can help you to make this right.  Let us know how this all goes.  I am so sorry that it happened, but like I say go easy on yourself, we do live and learn.

Hugs, Karen

Hi gettingby, I know how you feel about losing your content after taking time to write on, this doesnt happen anymore because what I do is copy and then submit, if it loses what I wrote I go to reply again and paste it and so on on..........
 
Thanks for the happy birthday wishes!!!!! Besides my mom, daughter and son, you are the only greetings I got, sometimes I miss being a kid because I would at least get a card or two from someone that loves you.
 
 
I did my taxes today and about threw up.  If it werent for a certain new credit I would have received nothing!!!  Now I am worried because I planned on a lot more to payback a debt and help with my medical bills, I will never get out of be poor.  Oh well.  Just get depressed thinking of it.
 
Well I am going to go my daughter and her fiancee are coming over to visit for my birthday.  I just found out that I may be a grandma in 9 mos. :(:)  That is another story, in fact you guys are the first ones I've told.  Not sure how I feel about it.
 
Thanks again for the happy birthday, I love you guys!

Teresa,

Happy Birthday!

Happy impending grandbaby!!

Sorry I am a bit late, I did not sign on yesterday.

The baby will be such a blessing. There is nothing like a little one around to perk up your spirits.

The car thing is so upsetting. I know exactly what you mean about feeling taken advantage of when buying a car. I fell in love with a car last month. It was for my son-he is 16. I bought it without doing the appropriate research. I paid too much. I have been so mad that I was taken advantage of. Seeing how much my son and husband love that car makes me feel better, but the bargain hunter in me is not happy.

Ebay is usually very helpful. Hopefully you will be able to get your money back quickly.

Happy Birthday Teresa! Im sorry I didnt manage to get online yesterday so my wishes are a little late but I hadnt forgotten. Im so sorry to hear about your car. I dont know about the US but in the UK, main dealers are usually pretty good at repairing things, even the really bad stuff. We have a register in the UK where all cars which are written off (I think you call it totalled in the US). If a car is written off BEYOND REPAIR then it is on the register and there isnt a good garage within 5000 miles that will touch it. I dont know if you have such a system to find out what happened to the car and how bad it was. In terms of lawyers, Im not even going to say anything since I know NOTHING about US law. Karen and Shy should be able to help you mind.

Please dont get too down about this. It is possible that there is still a happy ending at the end of this... even if it results in you getting your money back and you getting a different car. (I'd go for a red one! tongue )

Thanks everyone, my birthday was uneventful.  My daughter did come and see me.  our relationship is so much better since aug.
 
More bad news today about my taxes.  Apparently my daughter was claimed by her father which I have court papers to show how we are to file, odd, even.  they told me that I could have an investigation but i would not get the little bit of refund until end of july, needless to say, looks like once again bad fortune is on my side.
 
Sometimes I wonder why things continue to pile on me.  Also, the jobs I applied for never called me back so I feel like a nothing there as well.  I just wander why, all the time, good news is clouded by bad, why cant I go a week without something negative happening to me.
 
Just another day to get through.
Teresa

Hi Teresa,

I am so sorry for your misfortune, but things do change.  It must have been nice to see your daughter on your birthday.  That was a special time for you and I hope that you enjoyed it. 

As for filing your taxes, weigh it out, it might be worth investigating, depending on what you would get back.  And it really isn't that long of a wait.  Sometimes when you file, you have to wait until then anyway.  I hope you can get the most out of it without too much aggrivation.

I hope that your day gets better for you.  I woke up to more snow.  Ugh... I am so sick of it that it isn't even funny anymore.  Last year we were finding morel mushrooms the 24th of April.  This year it doesn't look like we will find them until May.  Boo hoo.  I love mushroom hunting in the woods.

Take care, keep us posted on how things are going.

I wish for you a wonderful relaxing day.

Hugs, Karen
