Excuse me, have you seen 2014 around here anywhere?

So…um, this is awkward. I’ve been meaning to write an entry for awhile now and it looks like it’s been more than two months since I last did. Whoops. And here we are not only in 2015, but midway through the second month of 2015. Yeah sorry about that. I did get around to making […]

We’ve Gone Rogue

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 @ 1:11pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love, Photography and Pics |

As you may have read previously, Love was in a serious car accident the morning of Friday, August 1st on his way to work. He had a sudden, catastrophic brake failure and, unable to stop or swerve enough, he collided with the minivan in front of him at about 40-45mph. He came out of the […]

The Day the Element Died

Posted by miss m on Friday, August 1, 2014 @ 1:17pm in Blog, Car Issues, General Blather, Grief, Photography and Pics |

First off: Love is ok. The car, however is dead. It’s been a fucking morning from hell. My phone rang at 7am. I had been asleep 4 hours. It was my guy in a shaky voice telling me he was in an accident. I threw clothes on and drove to his work. (About 30 minutes […]

And There Went July

Posted by miss m on Monday, July 29, 2013 @ 12:02am in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Grief, kitties |

So…yeah. Another month [nearly] gone and only a lone entry thus far to mark it’s passage. That’s just sad. I’ve been meaning to write an entry for like two weeks now but it never seems like I have the time. Plus, summers are dull in Florida; all the locals hibernate from the sweltering heat and […]

It’s All About the Money

Posted by miss m on Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 11:43pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Good news is that we got Love’s car fixed Friday. We’re back to a two car household and the horrible, destructive whine of the compressor grinding itself to bits is no more. The bad news is that it cost more then we planned: $789.54 I had been planning on $700 so the extra hundred hurts. […]

4th Time the Charm?

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 @ 11:23am in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather |

If it’s true that Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, then it’s probably time for my white coat and padded room. Because I need to try and make something work that hasn’t been successful the past three very expensive attempts. Let me tell you about my Tuesday. The […]

The Tale of the Power Window Regulator Assembly

Posted by miss m on Sunday, August 19, 2012 @ 11:10pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love |

The power window regulator assembly is this bow-looking bit that controls the power windows on a Honda Element. Looks like this: The problem with this part is that there’s a little plastic bit on it that tends to, well, break. And when it does, it loses all tension and the window falls down completely into […]

A/C Redemption?

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 @ 4:33pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather |

Talked to Wayne. He checked first to make sure the radiator fan and compressor fan did in fact need to be replaced. (Didn’t want to just take someone’s word on it.) And they did, so he replaced those. Then he checked out the a/c. Drained and flushed the system. Inspected it. Recharged it with freon. […]

Today’s Car Update

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 @ 4:20pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather |

Just got back from dropping it off. Here’s today’s update. Apparently, Wayne said the radiator fan is just bad timing, not part of the problem with the A/C. (Though I guess the reverse is possible? You can burn out a compressor fan from a bad radiator or something as the system tries to stay cooled […]

A Very Bad Day

Posted by miss m on Monday, June 18, 2012 @ 11:17pm in Car Issues, Family, Finances, Sickness and Health Issues |

It’s just so much I can’t even explain it all. But the long, horrible story short is that the Element’s air conditioning is completely wrong. I’d say, “again” but it seems like it was never fixed right the first THREE times we’ve done it. This has been going on for TWO YEARS now and still, […]

Holiday Weekend

Posted by miss m on Monday, May 28, 2012 @ 11:30pm in Blog, Car Issues, Entertainment, General Blather, Holidays, Love, Weather |

Been quiet around here the past few days because it was a 3-day, holiday weekend. Today (Monday, May 28th) is Memorial Day and a Federal holiday so most companies are closed, including Love’s. (Plus things like banks, post office, etc.) It’s also considered the “unofficial” start of summer here in the US. People BBQ and […]

Dead Car Battery (With Help from Homer)

Posted by miss m on Thursday, May 10, 2012 @ 10:15pm in Car Issues, Customer Service, Finances, General Blather, Love, PhoenixFire Designs |

So my day started off like this: Because at 6:30am as Love is leaving for work, he calls me and says his car won’t start. He’s got to get to work (obviously) so he’s taking mine. Boo. I worry a little but go back to sleep. When I get up, I walk downstairs to the […]

Ok, so it’s Monday. And busy week ahead. First, the Honda. Love talked to a friend who gave a mechanic recommendation. Looked him up on Google and he’s got 10, 5-star reviews. Everyone says he’s honest and fair priced. Love’s friend has been going to him for years. So I’m waiting on AAA right now […]
