Awful day!!

Friday, January 11, 2008

Now, I would definitely say I'm an emotional eater!! I've had an awful day!! It started well though..
Woke up and exercised with Denise Austin at 7:00 am..
Payday..don't you love them. I paid all my bills and still had $300+ left over.

So I decide to go get my oil changed and my car looked over... what do you know.. catalytic converter needs replacing.. v-belt needs replacing.. and not naming names big car maintenance company tells me it's going to cost me about $700 to get it done!! I'm glad to have $300 in my pocket now how in the world would I come up with $700!! And get this.. they want to charge me $100 just to change my spark plugs... I know something's wrong now!! I had to have a foreign car. Lovely. California emissions.. and some more garble I know nothing about. I tried to remain in a better mood. Things looked up when my BF ran into a guy that works on cars and knew what he was doing. Well, he can change my spark plugs for $20. I bought them for $6. Far cry from $100. And so...

Dinner... 4 fish sticks ,macaroni and cheese, and baked beans

Snack.. Coffee cake and Diet Lipton raspberry white tea

What a world!!

Update: Got the Catalytic Converter in finally this year.. 2013..way less than $700.. bought the part online for $150 and had it installed for $120!!

Internet is great!!

    I feel your pain about the car and money woes. It has been a bad month for us and vehicles (not one, but TWO of them down with expensive motor problems). Dumping it out on the blog helps take the edge off the urge to emotionally "eat the problem away". Here's hoping for your Monday to be better than your Friday was! ~lisa

So far So good

Alright, I've been here since 1/6/08 and I've exercised for 3 days in a row!! That's good for me!! Just getting to the gym on a regular basis is trying for me. I guess I better for $40/month. But I can do this... if anything, I may just feel better afterwards.

I do have one thought though. Has anyone else noticed that the things that are not so good for us are so much cheaper?!? I'll make it though.. somehow.
