I called him after work and his exact words were, "yes it is the pump, yes it is expensive, and if I were you, I would drive it out the door as soon as I could." He told me that between 4-6 months a main part of the car (I will not get into the specifics) will go out and be thousands to replace. So sad! I asked him when he suggested I start looking. His exact words, "I do not know your financial situation, but this weekend." I have to give my baby up this weekend?! SO SAD!!
On a brighter note, a new car is an awesome birthday present! Well, I am going to look at it that way. I will not focus on the fact that I only lived three short months without a car payment. I will not focus on the fact that I am ridiculously attached to this car and will shed tears when it drives away. I will focus on the fact that it is a great time to buy a new car. Crappy economy AND the end of the month...COME ON GREAT DEAL!!
Other fun things...
1.) I went to dinner with a friend from my old job tonight. Every time we go out we try to get a free drink. Usually, my boobs cannot be squished together to get me a free anything so I throw out the "it's my birthday" gig. Well, the place we went to tonight has caught on to my ploy and denied the drink request. OH BUT BEHOLD! I bust out the license and BOOM! Free drink. And BeeGee picked up the tab. Thanks girlie.
2.) This one will seem small to most of you, but tomorrow (my actual b-day) I get to wear jeans to work. This is such a small but joyous occasion! Ah, sweet, sweet Chuck Taylors. :)
I have absolutely nothing planned, but let the weekend begin!
Pip~ Happy birthday buddy! Seriously, I do not know why we were not better friends until now...oh wait, we analyzed this one night...yes I do. Regardless, I am so glad we have reunited and you are back in my life. You make me smile and "keep it real." Thanks. Hope you have a great day and a fantastic weekend!
