There are days I wish I had a save button so I could reload.

Case in point yesterday.

Was driving making a pickup and just short of home there was a dull clunk from the engine and the car stopped. Two hours later after getting roadside assist and a tow to a mechanic, who luckily lived just near my place, the news wasn’t good. Cam belt broke. Bad news was in my type of engine that tends to mess up the valves. Won’t find out to Monday morning when they get a chance to look, but it is most likely the result, and if that is so the car will be out of action for one to two weeks and cost a fair bit to fix.

Not enough that it would be easier to get a new car, but far more than I want, given I’m not exactly overflowing with funds and am still unemployed. Will force me to dip into the emergency funds, but unfortunately I need the car. They have been accessed far too often these last few months.

Hopefully things improve soon otherwise I may be out on the street 😛
