Car troubles...AGAIN!

Over the last 4 or 5 months, I had written quite often of Mark's car problems and how we've now pretty much paid more in car repairs then we paid for the stupid is the time to once again bitch and complain. Yesterday as he was driving home from work, he heard what he thought was a belt break. Great, a belt...shouldn't be too bad, right? Wrong! Apparently when the belt broke, it wrapped itself around the piece of metal at the end that holds all those parts together (sorry, not a car person, unfortunately) and broke it too. Now that part has to be replaced, along with the belt for $293.00! Ahhhhh!!!! Yeah, it just gets better and better.

Ugh - I hear ya! We actually have to buy a new car this week :( Our recently paid off (and our only) car just had an oil leak - and we threw a rod. Ugh. So - we are buying a new car a little sooner than planned. Such good timing!
