And not in a good way

Today sucks. Just got home from having my car towed - it died on me - first time in the 4+ years I've had it. There's other stuff too, but this was the topper. So, since I can't think of anything happy to say, I'll just wallow in self-pity for awhile.

Triple :(

Sorry to hear you're having a tough time. Hope things get better soon.

I guess I should say thanks, Marina, Elle, Craig. It's a new day - I slept a long time. I am hoping for a not-too-expensive and easily fixable diagnosis. Hadn't realized how important it was to me mentally to have a car that had never let me down in the 4 plus years I've owned it. Before then it was common.

Also, I've discovered, it's hard to write smut when you're not feeling happy. At least for me.

Anyhow, thanks again. I guess I wanted to explain why I was ... absent.

I can understand exactly how you feel. When my lil' Nissan's timing chain went last year I was distraught. Even more so when the logical decision, from a budget POV, was to neither fix nor replace her.

I miss having my own car.

So I'll wallow with ya ;)

*hugs* Sorry to hear things aren't going well - and about your car! :(

I hope today has been better for you!

Hey, Robin. Sorry to hear your auto buddy is ill. It's weird how much we depend on it for our independence, isn't it? Hope you (and your car) are feeling better soon.

Vroom, vroom, soon.

Thanks JM, Cora, Donna & cerulean. I'm doing a little better today. Still no word on my car - they didn't think they'd get to it today (even to look at). Luckily I do have another car to drive, but it's not as fun, obviously.
