Baaad Sunday (Vent)
So Friday I drove to my friend's house to drop off some stuff for the party on Saturday. As I walked around the front of my car, I noticed steam/smoke just pouring out of the corner. Popped the hood and the coolant was boiling and the container rocking like it was possessed. Coolant had spilled out the top pressure release and landed on the hot engine which was causing the steam. Turned the car back on momentarily to check the gauges and not a single freakin' lot had gone one to notify me, although I noticed the heat gauge was at 75%. I had to leave my car there and have FI come pick me up.Saturday, my day was already stacked too busy in prep for the party that night (which went ok other than I had to duck out of the murder mystery game for about an hour thanks to an anxiety attack) and I just couldn't deal with my car.Sunday, called Firestone and they agreed with my dad that I should not drive it the 1.4 miles in because if it was serious, it could crack my head gaskets. (Ugh, 2 cracked gaskets is what killed my last car) $82 tow to the shop (no, I forgot to sign up for AAA last month when I finally had the money; I let it lapse when I was unemployed as I couldn't afford it). After running diagnostics: thermostat is shot. It kept sticking so didn't tell the car it was overheating. Radiator now has a leak and has to be removed to be patched. New radiator hoses...Total: $912!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Crap!!!! And I was just at the point I could put at least an extra $50 away for the wedding each month. I was not in any mood to attempt going to the GTG nor could I spend any money on food or a drink, so that sucked, too!To top it off, my oblique muscle on the right side has been twitching since Sunday morning, which worries me that my shoulder muscles are trying to get all screwed up again. Waaaah....I am hella cranky! And that's not EVEN getting into the sh!tstorm that I got on my FB wallpost from my cousin and my mother because I wrote OMFG in my post about my car. Thanks for the SUPPORT and COMPASSION rather than a lecture about my language (seriously?! I didn't write it out!)
