Thank goodness for extended warranties. We bought one for about $1200 or so when we bought our car. It has lots of electronic gadgets so we figured it might be worth it. We have had several of the window motors replaced, the heated seat in the driver’s side (would never have been fixed without the warranty, it was $600) and two days ago my car overheated. Turns out two of the radiator fans needed replaced and the pressure had caused a crack in the reservoir so that had to be replaced. Guess how much that was?? $856!! We only had to pay our $50 deductible and then a $38 service fee that the warranty wouldn’t cover. I can’t believe what a rip off that was. We have to take it to a fancy smancy dealership certified service department so the warranty will cover it. It still needs two belts replaced and the spark plugs but Scott can do that or we will take it to somewhere cheaper since it is not covered under the warranty.
I am SO confused about what to do with Emma’s crib/bed situation. She does great at night, has never tried to climb out of her crib but she DOES NOT sleep well during naps there. She sleeps in our bed for naps. I wonder if she would do better if she had her own comfy toddler bed. But then I think of having to chase her down at night when she crawls out of bed. But then what will we do for the new baby’s crib? I don’t know. A mother of 4 told me to keep Emma in her crib until Lexi is 3 months and then move her to a bigger bed while Lexi sleeps in a bassinet in our room. But then that stinks because I won’t have a crib all pretty and ready in the nursery. I know it’s kind of pointless when they are first born to have a crib, but I have to have a decorated nursery!
