Briefly as I need to take a shower and head to bed soon for work tomorrow, here’s the highlights of my day.
Had a nice lunch with my Mom and Rand’s Mom at Cheesecake Factory today as a belated birthday celebration. I have a slice of Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake in the fridge waiting for me as well. Food and company were both very good.
The Not So Good
Dropped my car off at the auto repair place today to get the A/C checked out since it hasn’t worked in a couple months and we’re at the point were it’s getting literally unbearable to be in a non air conditioned car and it’s only going to get worse.
Turns out it’s the compressor. Totally fucking shot. Hello $650 repair.
And? Love’s car desperately needs repair as well since the main pulley on the serpentine belt is going bad. If it goes, the serpentine belt will snap and take out, well, the entire engine. Did I mention he has to drive 20 miles to-and-from work a day? Awesome. We don’t have an estimate yet but his dad just had the same repair and it was $200. And the Element tends to be much higher in repairs as the engine is sideways in the car and typically requires a degree in origami to access any part of it.
So yeah… it’s just another red-letter day. Just when I think things are going to be a pleasant day, life takes a big ‘ole dump right on my head.
