By refusing to drive my car any more than absolutely necessary. We have no funds for it to be realigned, tuned up, or anything else.
I took the kids to the dentist yesterday, and I couldn't go over 53mph. The speed limit was 65mph. I was almost ran off the road. My anxiety was off the charts by the time I got home. The fact that each of the kids will eventually need braces didn't help. Maybe I can sell a kidney?
It feels awful knowing that I can't just get in the car and go. We have another vehicle, but it won't even crank. Man-person doesn't seem interested in working on it or making my car a bit safer.
I will take the kid to school. Come home and hang out in pj pants. Because I can. Or have no choice. Whatevs.
