Money, Money, Money...

...all the things I could do! If I had a little money...

Oh, dear! So, today is the second day of our "fake-ation" and we decided to get a bunch of the chores that we have been putting off, and off, and off done today. First things first Keith took my car to get the oil changed. As a little back story awhile back we took the car in because the "check engine" light kept coming in. They didn't find anything wrong and sent us on our way saying all was OK. Well, Keith calls me from the shop this morning and says "well, there's a hole in the exhaust manifold and it causes the pistons to misfire when we are idling (which was making the check engine light come on and the car chug at red lights), soooo...it's gonna cost $610 to fix it." Wha? Whu whu wha?? Are you stinking kidding me? I don't even have ANY idea what he is talking about, all I heard was $610! Apparently this problem isn't super dangerous, until it becomes dangerous...nice, huh? So we don't NEED to fix it, but why take the chance? Luckily we have been customers at this place since we moved here so they took it down to $525, but STILL? We are so not in the place where we can just toss 500 bucks into my car! Oh, well...at least my car is getting vacuumed out, right? Right.

I am thinking I need to start listening to the radio more so I can win one of those $1000 giveaway thingys that they do in the summer time.

And this is just because I can't WAIT to see this movie, plus I have been singing this song ALL. DAY. LONG. and I want you guys to have it in your heads too! Muahahaha!!

Car trouble stinks. We've been blessed that Ryan and Mike have been able to fix our car problems. Hope you get to see Mamma Mia soon.

You definitely needed to fix an exhuast leak. It can lead to further trouble, plus you were probably getting carbon monoxide in the car without knowing about it. Gotta love cars! Dad
