A Nice Day Off


Josh is on vacation this week. Lucky bastard and all that 😀 Today, I was finally off. I like my job, but damn, I was ready for a day to sleep in.

Not that THAT happened! We had to drop the truck off at the dealer because my battery gauge kept jumping around. It’s something we should watch but the part to fix alone is almost $600, and since it isn’t HURTING the truck while it’s in use, we don’t have to fix it. Same with the MAF sensor and the ABS brain 😆 Truck will be getting upgraded in a couple years, and according to Kelly Blue Book, is only worth a little over $4k, with a trade-in value barely over $2k 😆

I’m Gonna Write You a Letter

Yesterday, your pet/baby/inanimate object could read your post. Today, they can write back. Write a post from their point of view (or just pick any non-verbal creature/object).
Return Address

I have no idea what my Kindle Fire would respond back with. Most likely “God damn it, stop using me so often. Give me a break.

Or maybe “Use me more often.” I do tend to leave it on the bed in the mornings. But if I bring it into the living room, nothing, and I mean nothing, will actually get done if I had my Kindle in the living room with me.

My truck would tell me “See, I told you not to worry. It was just a hiccup. The wind went in the wrong pipe”. The truck got her code scanned, and it was my MAF sensor. It happens when wind gets up weird in the engine or whatever. Happens more often than it should but it doesn’t hurt the truck (confirmed by a couple different mechanics). That’s good news.

Weather Screwed

Truck is completely frozen solid. Lovely.

Sticker Shock

The truck needs new shocks. I’m not sure what kind it needs. I’ve looked at rancho rs7000mt shock absorber. I think I need to talk to my Girl Scout troop leader’s husband. He does that sort of stuff.

The truck needs a few other things as well. Needs a new fuel filter. That’s over $100, and the part? Less than $30-40, from what Josh has seen in the LMC and related guides. Yeah, that much for labor :O It costs more to fix the part than it does to buy the part. DADDY!! COME VISIT ME!!

Blech. The biggest money killer is vehicles, I swear! Well, at least my sister-in-law now knows what it’s like to drive an SUV. She’s driven a huge truck (her mom’s truck, the one Josh was driving until we got the Malibu), a car, and an SUV. 😀 I think she prefers a car though 😀
