Hello to all my Frugal Workshop readers! :)
On Monday of this week, after working the last 23 school days I finally had a day off this week, and I needed it. For the last two weeks I've battled a case of Strep Throat and an eye infection that had left me drained. Three doctor visits and several medicines later I am feeling so much better.
Today I am taking my car into the repair shop as my "Check Engine" light has been on this week. Hopefully it will not cost me a small fortune. Time will definitely tell.
Here is what I've been listening to this early morning:
Amazing Grace: My Chains Are Gone
The auto repair shop said my my radiator is cracked and I need a new idle solinode and a mass air flo sensor. Total for all the repairs will be $872.51. They have ordered the parts and they will be in next week. That does not include today's cost of $93.18 for an oil change and for the computer diagnostics test. Ouch! I didn't expect that at all.
Afterwards I stopped at Home Depot for some jet spray wasp spray as the wasps have returned with the warm weather. Total cost of that was $3.88 for a two pack.
Funny thing though, on Monday and Tuesday it was so cold here that it snowed. When we left school that day the mountain was covered. I don't know about you, but I am ready for warm weather to come and stay. :)
