Still feeling under the weather, but plodding along anyway.
Journal page done and posted. Yea me!
A check we have been waiting on finally came in a few days ago. I’d done lots of math in anticipation of its arrival in order to make the best use of it.
A few things were paid off and an emergency fund established.
And yesterday, our car (which had been struggling) let it be known that it was done for. A check-up at the mechanic’s verified what we had feared – the transmission is shot.
One step forward…
and two steps back.
It’s an old car and really not worth the money we would need to put into it to fix the transmission. It also needs some work on something that makes the front wheels and the back wheels go round and round together.
I know that was a pretty technical description of the problem, but let me put it in simpler terms…probably well over $500 for that fix.
And the air conditioner doesn’t work.
So, it looks like we will go car shopping.
On the bright side.
We have an emergency fund. We only had it for a couple of days, but it still counts, right?
It’s not enough for a car, but it’s something, right?
It’s all going to be okay.
Nope, it’s definitely going to be okay.
