P's birthday weekend went pretty well, despite a few setbacks. Most notable was the 2-hour gridlock on the way back to Lansing that barred us from the movie we wanted to see. Today, I've been shafted by fate. When I need every penny I can get, my transmission decides to start leaking. I mean it's forming a foot-diameter puddle in a matter of hours. Like 3 quarts per week. Taking it in tonight after work. This makes it necessary to withdraw money from my savings that I didn't want to touch because of the move. Yes, it's my money to do with what I wish, but I'll never build up a decent savings if I keep skimming off the top. Oh well, I guess this means I can splurge on those cels I wanted, too.
UPDATE: total cost of repair: $15.70. For a whole new case of fluid and a new gasket. Egad, this is either elating or frightening.
