So on Tuesday of last week I went to get my brakes done, cost me $260. When I was paying the man mentioned to me that it may be time to change my timing belt as well. Well, Thursday on my way to work guess what happened? My car stopped working. I had to get it towed to the shop on Friday, 16 miles already $103 in the hole. Guess what was wrong? That is right, timing belt slipped. In all this cost me $2400. $2400!! Timing belt replacement, they also replaced water pump, temperature sensor, freon, oil, radiator fluid, spark plugs, I also had to get the valves replaced and piston heads smoothed out. It took them a week to get it all fixed.

Luckily I was able to work from home, except I have computer/internet problems, so I took ~4 days of my vacation because of it. So that cost me even more. I lost $2400 plus 4 days on Spain. I am fucking depressed about this. I am getting my work computer reimaged next week so hopefully that fixes that.

I have been sad and upset this last week and on top of that Miriam has been upset with me and yelling at me because she thinks I could have prevented this by having the belt replaced a lot sooner, maybe she is right however that does nothing to yell and push blame on me.

Grrr
