Well, I have had a couple of very boring days...

Monday morning, I went to start the truck, and there was a big ka-thump.

The timing belt broke.

Luckily, the truck was sitting still when it happened, if I'd been going down the road, it would have bent up all the valves... as is, I didn't have to replace any of them. Actually, the mechanic didn't have to replace any of them, I didn't do one darned thing... except pay for it.

So I've been sitting in the house doing absolutely nothing. And whining about it.

I seriously never realized just how mind-numbingly bad daytime TV is....

but then, this afternoon, The mechanic called and the truck was ready.

So, in the space of 10 seconds, I went from "I'm so bored" to "I don't wanna go to work....."

Just can't make me happy, huh?


  1. LOL...you are rather difficult to please! Hee hee hee! Glad it was minimal problem with truck at least, eh???

  2. Well, a timing chain ain't what I'd call minimal. It's not something that I'd be willing to even try myself.

  3. This must be the car trouble week-- I had to replace the cv axel and had a flat yesterday!!! At least I was near Sears and had it fixed quick! Sounds like we both need new vehicle's and someone to pay for them!

  4. Well, at least you may be on a more even keel for the rest of the week. Heck, work might even end up fun!
