The Husband's car, Scarlett, has decided to have a hissy fit and refuses to go in reverse. The car, a Saturn, is 11+ years old and not worth the $2K to fix the transmission. Thus, we are going to experiment with the Husband commuting to work on the bus with a combo of bike or me dropping him off at the local kiss-and-ride.
This whole thing makes me nervous. What if my car gives up the ghost? It shouldn't. It's a 7 year old Toyota under 100K. More than that, part of me doesn't want to be trapped in the house. That's not the plan at all. But it is still a worry.
Meh. I would say timing could be better. But there's no good time for a car to lose it.
On the good side of things, Scarlett will be a nice tax write-off and I get to park in the middle of the garage.
Gotta always look for the bright side.
