Have I mentioned I think I’m depressed because there probably won’t be a spring marathon. Meh.
Memorial weekend there is a local Olympic distance triathlon here in town that I may do but frankly swimming in the cest pool they call Bennington Lake sounds kinda miserable. I don’t know, maybe it’s not. Many people think running 26.2 miles sounds miserable. We will be catering the event for the “athletes” so it kinda seems like a no brainer choice. Meh. Whatever.
I bought a new car.
It’s ridiculous but I’m sick over the fact that my Volvo is toast. I love my car! It’s a 2000 but only 102k miles. It should have lasted forever, but it didn’t. Also since we live In The Middle of Nowhere the closest Volvo place is 3 hrs away. I need to come to terms that this is Good Ole Boy Country and I probably deserve a useless hunk of expensive metal for moving here in the first place. If you can’t beat em, join em? Ugh.
The transmission went out, to replace the transmission properly is $4,500, the same cost as the car. Have I mentioned I love my car? I think that is contributing to my funk.
Cars, furniture, and clothes are all such a waste of money. They are a necessity and frankly I like the nice shit. So I’m mentally torn with spending extra money to have nicer things or just throw my hands in the air and wear scratchy Walmart clothing and drive a Ford Focus. Ok, who am I kidding? I think we all know the answer to that. I’m not going down without a little fight.
Hmmmm I wonder who repairs helicopters.
What kind of car do you drive? Like it? Walmart or fancy for you?
