I was driving doing my errands this afternoon and then all of a sudden I heard "pop" when I turned and then it was hard to turn my steering wheel. I went to the local garage and asked them to look at it because I was pretty sure it was my power steering pump/hose. Yep, it was. Now not only was it that but my tie rod ends were also shot and they needed to be fixed. I asked for a quote; over $600!!!! Now for several months now I've done something I've never done before. I started saving, I know I'm pathetic, 31 years old and finally I've started to be responsible and save money. So I have the money to fix my jeep but the even better news and miracle of this all is that I actually don't have to touch my savings. This month the way the pay periods work I get 3 paychecks, bonus! So I was going to at first go shopping with the extra money, then I thought twice and was going to do the responsible thing and put the extra money in savings. However now that the jeep is going to cost that much I will just use the money for that. So thanks God for keeping my jeep running smoothly until I had the extra money available to get it all fixed. See miracles do happen!!
