Eventful lives

August 16th, 2009 at 06:52 pm

Wow, reading the blogs lately, it seems like everyone is having rather eventful lives, though sadly, not all are over good news.

So, I guess I feel kind of lucky that not much is happening to me, because no news is better than bad news!

Well, there is one piece of bad news. My car broke down again. Something wrong with ignition. Starter or faulty wiring maybe. Not sure.

We took it to someone and thought it's fixed. Within 24 hours, it died again. My mom has a friend who is a really good mechanic, and I hope he can fix it sometime this coming week.

Either way, at 192,000 miles, it's time to think about a car replacement fund. I have been lazily working on one, but I think I better push up the priority on it.

For giggles, I did look into Cash for Clunkers, but alas, I don't qualify. It would appear that Corollas are just too fuel efficient.

Ah well, I'm really hoping the car will last at least another year or so. Hopefully, I'll have the funds to replace it by then.

    Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that your car broke down. It seems like car troubles are making their way around us bloggers here.

    My car only has 114k miles, so it's still a baby compared to yours!
