Yesterday morning, my van's battery was dead. Today, I went to have someone change the thermostat so I would be able to have heat in it. (The high of 24 is not a good time to go without heat.) Well, the radiator kept overheating with the new thermostat. Then it overheat with the old thermostat in it. Then, it blew a head gasket. It will be towed tomorrow to see what can be done and how much it will cost.
I have no clue how I am going to get the money to fix it, let alone if it's worth fixing. The van itself has 410,000 miles on it. The motor (that DH built "so well") has 125,000 on it. My job will end withing four weeks. So, I'm sitting here with a glass of wine hoping I can get some sleep tonight. Somehow I don't think that will happen tonight, either.
