I know there is a malvolent little demon out there with my name on his T-shirt who just happened to notice that I was really going to try hard to be more fiscally responsible. Joining this blog, doing the baby steps, and starting my Bank of America savings account tickled him so much that he had to fiddle with the throttle position sensor on my "new to me" car. When the throttle body was removed screws did something I do not understand and die had to be run on threads (whatever that is) to restore them. Thus I have a new bill of $136.81 which the garage assures me was the best they could do, giving me parts at cost nd labor at a lower rate than usual.
To my little demon....you'd better look out!!!!!! I'll get you back!!!

    I'm so sorry. They have told me here that after you get you a little emergency fund going that these things don't hurt quite so much. I am trying to build smaller funds for those car things, appliance things, dental things, eye things, birthdays, insurances, etc. Seems like there are so many of them, doesn't it? Nothing is simple or inexpensive. Hang in there! Stomp that little guy flat!

    Thank you, guys! I am still stomping up and down a bit, but I will settle down. I am definitely old enough to know these things happen, but wouldn't it just be nice if they didn't? Thank you for your support when I vent

    Yep it happened to my but like the saying goes "take it like a grain of salt" just stay focus and you'll see once Murphy sees you are doing a lot better than before he'll move some place else. I got that from D.Ramsey
