That was fast.
I wrote a blog on Jan 4th about our new plans and dreams for the coming year. Yesterday, they all got trashed. Yes, everything.
What has happened is that our car (a 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante) has developed a problem that two different organizations have said can’t be fixed. It seems to have a cracked flywheel. I say “it seems to have” because nobody will drop the transmission to look – the cost of diagnostics alone with that would run $750.
So, for the next few days my wife is going to have to walk to work, or get a ride from a co-worker. What we’re ultimately going to need to do is file our tax return ASAP and get the refund direct deposited so we can go buy another car.
I’m thinking “Honda Civic” if we can find one in our price range. Of all the cars I’ve ever owned, the Civic we had in St. Louis was the most reliable.
