Lemme just bend over for easier access

The world hates us. Just when you think things are on the upswing again, we get knocked down again. We've just laid out a lot of money in the last 4 weeks on my car. That money, as you know, was destined for the FET cycle so we have to delay it unless some act of god changes that. Now that "vehicle" and I will use that term loosely as I'd like to drop kick it to the curb decided that last night was a good time to break down while I was on one of the major highways in my city. Thankfully (I guess) being on the toll road was the better option as it's not as heavily traveled and tow trucks are quicker to reach you. And apparently, when you call for a tow being stuck on a highway has its advantages as you become a priority call. It seems, for those car-type readers, that my idler pully fell off the car while in transit. I was able to continue for a fair distance before the car finally died but no idler pully means no belt (it fell off too) to run the alternator to feed the juice to the battery. We should be able to get the battery charged enough to get the car to the mechanic later but that's about it. I was able to get the vehicle towed home as at that late hour, the mechanic wasn't going to be at his shop last night.

In any case, this means another outlay of cash and further delays I fear. I'm really tempted to just show up at the clinic next week and see what happens. I know from reading other people's blogs that cycles aren't always paid for up front. Regardless, maybe we should just assume the position because after all, we're taking things up that orifice on a regular basis is seems.

Sooner or later things have to get better.

Absolutely they will. I am sure of it!

Keep your head upand your butt on the seat so no one else can take a shot at it!

Ugh, that is terrible! Yes, why don't you show up at the clinic and see what they say. You won't get something you don't ask for!
