I was just informed this afternoon that my engine light being on
may mean I need a new sensor which could cost me $400+
since my car is past the milage warrenty.
I then was informed I need breaks, or rotors, or some shit.
Although I just had them grinded down in April
due to the fact that I had to jam on my breaks
to avoid being hit by 3 bouncing bowling pins.
Yes - you read that right...
I had to stop on a dime while doing 65 on the highway
(truthfully - it was more like 70-75!)
to avoid 3 bowling pins bouncing at me on Rte 84!!!
(You can't make this shit up folks!)
That was nothing...
...even more fun was trying to avoid a washer and dryer
that flipped out of the back of a pick up and came bouncing at me!
(Yes - washer and dryers bounce when coming at you 65 miles an hour!)
so anyway...back to my car....
I also need her 60,000 mile tune up.
This includes all the car engine sparkplug crap and a timing belt.
Car crap costs $429
Timing belt: $469
Possible rotors $400 something...
(I think I lost conciousness when she started into that cost)
for the possible engine light-emission thingy
if the light doesn't go off before I take it to them on Monday.
Today it cost me $56.00 to find all this out!
Oil change, tire rotation and friday night fun, right???!!!
(She did tell me they will be kind enough to deduct the $56.00 off the 60,000 tune up fee -
since that would have been included...cause Goddess knows - that would have broke my ass!)
So me - the emotional eater - emotional drinker that I am...
am having a seriously tough time having fun this friday night!
SO that romatic Paradise Island vaca I was planning
for my and Shaney's birthday celebration
at the end of August will be just a picnic on the patio here in CT!
On a good note...
Heading to Walnut Beach for the sandcastle competition tomorrow.
On a bad note...
It's calling for @#%&^! rain!
...when life gives you lemons...
(I just wish Jenny Craig had a tequilla!!!)
Off to cuddle with my sweetheart and watch a movie with my green tea!
PS...Eating life change is going well - I am loving Jenny's food! I highly recommend it!
*laughs* on day 3 anyway! ;)
