So my car's starter is basically broke. It's been long coming, and now that cold weather is here, it's arrived in full bloom. I called a few places today to get estimates. $342.49. $256.00. $379.85. And all this when I'm in a "let's pay off the debt with the extra money we're making from Pampered Chef and subbing." Fortunately, my uncle is quite knowledgeable about vehicles (I am not), and he's the manager of a tire & shop down home. So I called him up and asked what he could do for me. $104.00. That's without labor, which all the other quotes included, but he figures we can put it in ourselves and save the labor cost.
But, to make things better, NPR is currently streaming fifteen tracks (almost an hour of free music) from Bruce Springsteen's newest album, The Promise. Gotta say, the Boss just gets better and better the more I listen to him. How I want to see him in concert one of these days. The man's supposed to put on legendary concerts, and I wanna experience one. Anyway, if you would like to listen, follow this link to hear the album.
Now, back to fretting about finances, budgets, God, vehicles, engineering, war, and the multitude of other things that weigh on my mind. Oh, and Fallout, too, cause that's on the brain-tube right now.
