So, I’m having a week

I’m sure you’ve already heard, saw or read that my clutch went out. And, as you can see above, I was maybe a little shocked about how much I was quote over the phone. Just a little.

The timing of this couldn’t be worse. I definitely don’t have the money to be taking on these kinds of repairs right now, so I’m going to have to borrow from family, which I hate doing.

At least I know I’ve hit bottom. Honestly, I’m in the hole about $2k (make that almost $5 with the clutch) and making less than $1k right now. Add to that living with my parents and a very long list of other things. It really can’t get any worse, knock wood.

For future reference, you will know you have hit bottom when you see the gift shop. Mention my name and you’ll get a free cup of coffee.

  1. Update-

    I mentioned your name, they told me that they would gladly give me the free coffee you mentioned…

    But I would have to bring the beans…

    And the cup….

    And the water…

    Oh and the coffee maker too – they wanted a Percolator!
