lots of money gone

May 25th, 2006 at 04:58 pm

The car's radiator has had a couple of cracks in it. We only knew of one until the the guy at the oil change place mentioned the second. Last night, on the boyfriend's drive home from work, the radiator became too unstable to risk driving it any more.

So today we took it back to the same place to get it replaced. That's almost $400 gone in the blink of an eye. It would have been cheaper at another shop, but that was for a used radiator and we didn't trust the mechanic a fraction of how much we trust these guys.

My Insiders Club Access card will allow us $3 off the cost which is a small help. But I'm afraid some of it will have to be charged to a card as I don't think we have enough cash to make it. Quite a bit of it actually. Thankfully, we didn't have to rent a car today because my mom was able to give us a ride. Tomorrow though, if they don't get it fixed in time for the boy to leave for work, we may have to resort to renting one. It will ridiculously expensive even with our 25% off deal since he and I are both under 25 and because Enterprise jacked up their rates due to Memorial Day.

Thankfully, my shell card from MyPoints is already here so at least we've got an extra $10 to spare thanks to that.

I also had to reschedule a job interview today and will need to reschedule one for tomorrow too.
