Saturday I was in town and ask to bring home Taco Bell for my son. I stopped at
KFC/Taco Bell and my sons girlfriend (Jen) ran in and got what he wanted. I was hungry but planned on waiting till I got home and fixing something.
When Jen came out I turned the key but my pathfinder wouldn't start. I tried several times before calling DH (George) to come help me.
I was parked right in front of the door the smell from inside just kept making me want something to eat. I opened the hood and checked the cables tried to start it a few more times then a lady tried to jump it no luck. I was sure then that it was the fuse to ignition.
When George got there I had him go try to get a fuse. Out here most places close at noon on Saturday. One parts store was open he came back with a $13 fuse. When trying to put it in if fell behind the windsheild washer tank and down into an enclosed area around the front tire we couldn't get it out. So he went back to get another fuse they didn't have a 40 amp so he comes back with a 30 amp. Fuse blew still sitting in front of door smelling the food and looking at pictures of chicken and biscuits.
I had carried a bag of food with me that day and went to looking for it I thought I would eat an apple and Whole wheat bagel. I found out I had left the bag of food at my sisters house.
George decided to ask if we could leave the pathfinder there till the next day which they said we could but when we tried to roll up the windows we couldn't so I called a friend to pull it home.
My sister came and picked me up and I went back to her house for the night I went straight to the kitchen and got a bagel, peanut butter and fruit but before I could get a bite George called and we had to take him the key, he didn't bring his with him.
So i ran out with my food and ate it as my sister drove me back to KFC.
I sat in front of that door 3 hours hungry the whole time, money in my pocket and didn't eat anything :) I know I couldn't have done this a few months ago. Seeing the weight I gained from all that salt a couple weeks ago kept popping in my head and I didn't want to see that again. Thanks to Spark people I can see now just how far I have come by not getting what I kept wanting that day.
We got the fuse last night and George drove to the grocery he had the same problem the darn thing wouldn't start again. I had the friends who pulled the the pathfinder home for us ride up with me to get him they got it to start and it was driven home but can't trust it to go anywhere.
Will be replacing battery and battery cables if that doesn't work will have to be taken to garage.
It was hard to not get something to eat as hungry as I was, at one point I got the money out and was going to get something to eat. My son talked me into waiting a little longer I'm so glad he came in with his dad.
