Happy belated Valentine's day! Life's been crazy here.
Yesterday I spent my lunch hour at the Volvo dealer. My air compressor went - something to do with the A/C, the alternator and some pulley-thing. $1,200 later...
I guess I'm at the point of car ownership, (it's now 8 years old) where you start to weigh repair costs versus buying new. I'd rather not have a car payment. Though next up is a new set of tires. (Didn't I just get some?) Cosmetic fix to the ding on my bumper. (It's driving me crazy but can wait.) At this rate I could have a good down payment on a new S60 or even those cute little Insights.
Other than a card, Chris and I decided not to get anything for each other for Valentine's Day. (Did I mention the $650 to chop the ice from our gutters to stop the leaking that was happening inside the house? Or the additional $600 we'll need to shell out to repair the second floor hallway ceiling?) I was relieved at not needing to get gifts then he surprised me with a gift certificate to eBay for me to buy some postcards I'd been eying. Of course the guilt ensued. (We're now members of the MFA.)
Chris has been sick. I've been popping vitamins and washing my hands like a frenetic OCD-er. Anyway, no need to complain, at least spring is coming.
