Car Repair 2010
I knew it was coming.
My car needed to go into the shop, pretty much immediately due to very soft brakes. As usual, they came up with a laundry list of other maintainance that needs to/should be done.
I was annoyed when he added on his list “and the timing belt should have already been done”. I ineterupted. “No. That is at 110k.” I may not know a lot about cars, but I am perfectly capable of reading my ownder manual and following directions.
I need to balance how long I’m keeping this car versus what needs to be done, and what I can pass on. Goodbye fledging car fund, huh?
To top things off, my cell phone died yesterday. It’s a fairly old phone and quite old school — no a qwerty keyboard and not 3G ready. I’m figuring it is finally time to adopt a smartphone/multimedia phone of some sort. I am not sure what my budget is. What i mean by that is, my budget is whatever it costs to get what I want. Then again, I don’t want to pay for a data plan, so maybe I should stay old school. I think I have a back-up phone that works, so maybe I’ll stick with that.
With wedding stuff, my budget has really been quite all over the place lately and I need to sit down and go over stuff! Good thing there is an extra paycheck month coming up!
