– confirmed that the brakes on my car are practically gone and it will cost $800+ to fix them
– decided that this means we need to get me a “new” car a little earlier than intended
– found out that our formerly diabetic cat is now suffering from thyroid disease
– which means more expensive treatments … for a 13 year old, never-really-been-healthy kitty
So: we’ve dropped a load of cash and are about to drop a whole lot more; I’m currently car-less, and the cat is looking pathetic.
Oh, and raccoons or squirrels have stolen all our gorgeous, ripening tomatoes, taken one bite out of them, and left them in our yard. Little bastards.
