Raining and Pouring but Not Driving

Monday, Jeff's car refused to start. It is in the shop. Fixable. Maybe to pick up today or tomorrow at about $1000.

Today, I put my car in the shop for an oil change and 60K mile inspection and oh-good-grief the issues they found: rear brakes, balled tires, a dying battery, timer cover broken seal, rear deferential problem... all to the tune of about $1700.

It makes me want to cry. I'm already a little wigged out about money right now because of other stuff. This did not help at all.

But, we will make it work. We always do. Even if we need to cancel the plans we had for going away over Christmas that was going to be my birthday present from Jeff. Sometimes, being an adult really sucks. Most of the time, it's cool. But today is not one of those days.
