My car is currently in the shop. I’m such a girl about cars. If it gets me from one place to the next, I’m happy. When it no longer does that, I’m annoyed. Looks like it won’t be a huge, massively expensive deal though. The vacuum lines needed to be replaced and there’s a minor leak in the exhaust that can be fixed with a spot weld (just so you know, I’m only repeating what the mechanic said to my dad. I have no actual concept of what any of these things really mean). I do however understand that means no major parts replacements. I’m sure the labor will cost a bit but I’m just glad my transmission’s not falling out or anything. So that’s a major relief. Major. Cars are among the things I’d rather just not think about – cars, money, and boys. If I didn’t have to think about any of those things my life would be so much easier. Alas, I have to get where I need to go, I have to pay my bills, and I do love the mens.

Update: $250 later and she’s running like a top! Yay.

    I need to wash my car SEVERELY. And get an oil change.

    Don’t wash it too severely, or you might take off some of the paint.
