beachy

That's Okay, I Didn't Need That $1,000 For Anything :P

Smell of burning oil from the engine is not a happy thing; so I took Bruce (the Subaru Outback) to the dealer for his 105,000 mile service (ouch) and asked them to find the oil leak while they were at it.

"Turns out you have multiple leaks; you're looking at ~$800 on top of the 105,000 mile service, and we need the car overnight."

Bleah.

So now I'm driving around a teeny little rented Saturn and trying to figure out which configuration of credit cards and/or check writing will best cover this little foray into the world of unexpected expenses.

I'm just glad we already ordered the Bowflex, or I'd have been tempted to spend the tax refund on getting the car fixed -- and I'm tired of putting things off. We'll get this paid for somehow; at the worst, it just means a few months of progress on the savings lost.

Still annoying, tho! :P

Anyway, back to work for me. So much for spending the day drawing!
