Yep, you read the title right. It’s my birthday today. Yay!
Yesterday was a rather strange day. As I was driving, my car jerked and all of a sudden the engine stopped. I called a friend and had her help me troubleshoot over the phone.
I found out the serpentine belt was loose. In the meantime someone stopped to have me be at a warm place as it was very cold, 12 degrees.
I told the person to take me back to my work and in the meantime I signed up for a towing service as my car insurance did not provide roadside assistance for the plan I had with them.
I finally signed up and had my car towed to the nearest auto repair shop. The next day which is today, I went to the repair shop to have them told me my car was going to cost anywhere from $2000 to $3000, because the timing belt was also broken or something like that.
So here I’m on Craigslist looking for a car on a budget.
I surely will look back on this day and laugh because I know I’m working my way to my goal. This is just one of those events that need to be taken care of. No big deal.
Happy Birthday to me!
The Accented Guy.
