My car is in the shop again, for the third time this year. It’s getting old, and it’s putting a damper on my finances. A week ago the trans would slip out of drive ever-so-slightly when I would first use the car, and then it would be fine for the rest of the day. Friday night after I got out of work I ended up not being able to shift gears when I was stopped at an intersection waiting to turn left.
I’m really hoping that this is not going to cost a pretty penny, because it’s going to put a damper on my Holiday spending, as well as other things I have to take care of (which looks like they’ll be put on hold until I can get more cash flow in.)
Last night I ended up going out with Mark to dinner and a movie. Went to Ed’N’Joes for pizza, since I’ve been craving it, and I wanted to treat him to their amazing BBQ Chicken. After that we went to go see Borat in Orland Park, but the place was so packed we couldn’t find parking in their lot or their garage, so we left to Crestwood. We had an hour to spare so he drove us up to this place to get some shakes, goofed off on the ride there and back, and then went to the movie. It was packed. Ended up waiting in a line to get into the movie, though we found some pretty decent seats.
After that we just drove around for awhile, and well, it wasn’t anything huge, but I enjoyed myself a lot. Definitely love hanging out with him, and want to see him more, so hopefully I will tonight after I get out of work. But right now I’ve got a messy room to clean, or well, just clothes to fold and put away, since they’ve been laying on top of a chair/floor/door for awhile 😛
