Engine Driver

I have very little to blog about as of late. Sorry about that.

I'm even getting a late start on what mundane things I write about, but it's Saturday and I may have had two date nights last night. One with my man-date, Scott and one with my fiancé, Denton. Oddly enough, I only had one drink with each of them. Of course, dinner was with the fiancé. Not a typical Friday night for me.

Yet, still I'm up late and dragging. Bad dreams and one smaller cat that wanted affection and attention most of the night. Not normally her thing, so I'm not sure what's up with her.

And upon my two dates, I found my car is making a funny engine noise. Not a ha-ha, funny noise.

Yes, it kills me that I'm looking for a new car, but I wasn't planning on really getting one for a month or so from now (at the earliest), and now I get to plunk money into Viggo so I can trade him in. The noise came from nowhere and as Denton said, he could hear it before he came out of the house last night. NICE! No one is gonna find him a good home if I don't fix him first.

So after the gime and spin class (really gotta move soon), it's off to the car fixer-upper guys and see if they can find the source. I'm pretty sure it's a belt. I'm hoping.

No matter what's wrong with it, somehow it will end up costing $500. Ugh.

Is this the first time you used the word fiance in the blog? It made me smile.

Years ago I had the same dilemma - it was going to be $1200 so I went new car shopping. The dealer just overlooked it and gave me a great deal.

Before you spend money on the repair, see what kind of deal you can get from the dealer.

Perhaps you can do this yourself - I suggest a belt by Tommy Hilfeger, unless it is a domestic car and use one from TJ Maxx.
