Happy Labor Day
Den had to pull the motor on DJ's car so hopefully that will be completed by the end of the day. We have had to do a brake job on my van. Den's car just got front tires and a brake job. And now DJ's car is having the motor torn apart because of a blown head gasket. And I know that you are going to say, "You are so lucky Dennis can fix all of this." And you would be right except that he only did a head gasket once many, many, many years ago and did it with a mechanic. I ordered a Chilton's book and we both have said a prayer or two. I'll keep you posted on how the "moment of poof" goes. That is what Den calls it when he checks to see if what he fixed actually works.Oh yeah and DJ's car also needs a new AC compressor. Not that he needs AC but the pulley is screwed up and the car has a serpentine belt. Translated to girl speak-it won't go without that one part. Translated into Sonya speak-Shit there goes more money! I'm grateful that we have always saved for car repairs but I have blown through every penny. And don't say get rid of DJ's car, it is only $250ish to buy the parts for the head gasket and probably $200 for the AC compressor. It is still cheaper to fix that car than it is to buy another beater. Not that you were really going to say get rid of it. I'm just trying to convince you that it's still a good car. LOVE IT!
Oh yeah and we had to pay for DJ's teeth, I know I told you about it before but I'm still mad and broke. I mean it's not as if we don't pay thousands and thousands for our insurance. Now read it again with all the sarcasm you can muster. So what are they going to exclude from coverage next? Hmmmmmm, my guess would be anesthesia(some exclude that, I learn something new every day!).
I did tell DJ as he was going under that he was actually there for a sex change operation. The nurse said that he was going to be pretty and the Dr. called him Denise. So, I sort of got my moneys worth out of that.
And the power went out for almost 24 hours and we had to buy a generator. Yes, we HAD to buy it because the bags of ice weren't cutting it anymore and it was getting to the point where we were worried that we were going to lose all of the meat in the freeze. It would have been more than $200 to replace the food lost. Just peachy.
Oh and Den needed tools and broke a few things on DJ's car. Ok, I'll stop here. I want to cry.
See and you thought you were going to stop by for a visit and not get a rant. Maybe my nerves are just shot because of the moment of poof.
Not chillin' and grillin' just broke,
