Long story short, my car has been making a scary noise especially when I make left and right turns. I knew I needed to take it in to get looked at. My mom knows a guy that does good work and is fairly reasonable. It turns out I need a new power steering pump and front right axle. Total cost $742. Maybe I shouldn’t complain considering my car is going on 10 years old. I bought it brand new in August of 1999 and have taken good care of it ever since. Getting blindsided with these expensive repair bills from the mechanic is not something that makes me smile. Unfortunately, this option still works out cheaper than having a car payment every month over time. If it can last another year or two, I’ll be happy.
This is actually the perfect ending to a perfect week (sense the sarcasm here?). I have been cranky, crampy and not my usual self. I'm the girl that is usually positive and glass half full. I'm the girl where if I'm not super chipper and happy all the time, I have everyone asking me what's wrong. I feel like I can never just have a day (if you know what I mean). Sorry to be so whiney and somber, but I need to vent. This blog definitely serves as a nice outlet for me.
I'll snap out of it, I always do. It just seems that when it rains it pours. I have a lot on my plate right now and I think the stress of it all is getting the best of me.
