The transmission went out on one of my cars. It actually imploded, and little bits of the machinery were floating around in the transmission fluid.
Not enough money for another car — so went ahead and had the transmission replaced. Not ideal, but for the money we’d have to spend, we could not have gotten a decent car.
Best just to suck it up and get the transmission done in the car we DO know about, and hope for the best for the next three years.
Money’s scarce. I wasn’t working for a week and a half in December/Jan, and if I don’t work, I don’t get paid. So I lost nearly half a month’s pay, and now I’m feeling it.
Back to work. Pull in some extra hours and get the overtime. And hope for the best, that no more problems come up.
Health scares. More health scares. My good insurance is valid till the end of this year, then I need to make other arrangements. Like Obamacare or somesuch. It all seems so complicated and confusing.
I joke about it being easier to die, but some days it feels that way.
Not that I want to die. I think I’d settle for just being able to walk away from all of this. Move to the woods.Or go on the road. Just leave it all. People have good intentions, trying to help me get ahead at work, but honestly, I’d almost rather not.
Lord, how I would love to just lay it all down and walk away.
Adulthood is overrated. I want to be a pirate and sail the seas, knocking over pricey sailboats carrying rich couples, leaving the people alone, but making off with their loot.
Just an idea.
But with my luck, I’d get clunked on the head and would end up overboard.
I hit my head on the car door frame again last night. I keep doing that. It’s not fun. I’m feeling okay, afterwards. Same headache as usual. Still, I always wonder if THIS will be the final head injury that truly does me in.
I’m not there, yet. So I’ll count my blessings. And leave it at that.
