The Prognoses

We left my car with the mechanic a couple days ago. He called yesterday and said words we really didn't want to hear.. It needs a new transmission.

We're going to get it done but *ouch* this is really going to hurt the wallet.

That's how I lost Georgie. We figured the whole car wasn't worth the cost of a transmission. I may or may not have had something to do with that. Good luck!

My Olds Silhoutte van needs one, and they are called thor-away transmissions so you can't get a rebuild done, so we have to find that money. So Tink sits waiting.

Argh, that's no good news. We had to get a new timing belt for our car last year. So I know how your wallet feels... ;-)

That sucks! One of my sisters (I have 3 sisters) boyfriend is our mechanic so we luckily get a good deal on that kind of stuff.

Your transmission... my taxes... good thing we have each other - we can cry over our financial woes together ;-)

Isn't ironic that the transmission and the taxes will cost about the same and we found out about them at the same time... you have now entered the Friend-Twilight-Zone do do doo doo

Ohhh ~ I feel your pain. I know it's hard to find the joy in it, BUT you don't have to get a new car at least! For that you can be thankful!

Seriously, though, I'm sorry to hear about this. I hope it won't hurt too much.
