I seems to have the worst luck. Last payday I had to replace the tires on my Jeep and SUV tires are a bit costly. Today my car wouldn't start until I paid a mechanic $1900 to fix several items that went kablooie all at once. Fortunately it died after I got the girls to the pediatrician for their sinus nfections. I need a rich sugar daddy or a big win from a lottery that I keep forgetting to buy tickets for! Well, tomorrow is a new day.


Update: Final repair bill - $3,000. I can remember when $500 was a huge car repair bill and $3,000 could have bought a decent used car.

 We all have "those times". I hate it, too. Everything going wrong at once. Hope the girls feel better soon. You're right, tomorrow is a new day. I sometimes say that things couldn't get worse, but they always can. Keep your head up.
