Bit of a rough week...
« on: January 23, 2013, 06:26:34 PM »

So...this has been a bit of a rough week for me.

Monday, I got home from work, and spent the rest of the day hanging out with my in-laws--the family dog was put to sleep, and it's rough.  So, I took Monday to hang out. 

Tuesday comes along, and my car is making a horrible noise at the back end.  Several times on the way home, I pull over, and try to figure out why, but don't find anything.  About 5 miles from home, the back end of my car jerks to the right, and tries to throw me into the other lane.  I slow way down, and guide it gently to the side of the road, wondering if my tire fell off.

Answer:  Sort of.  Two of the lugbolts missing, leaving the tire at something of an odd angle (something like this: / ).  I jack the car up (still sitting beside the highway), and try to push it back on. 

Turns out, 2 of the bolts were completely gone, and still pretty hot--they'd just come off, right then, apparently.  My father-in-law came out, and helped me limp it home with 2 lugnuts holding the tire on.  My father in law loaned me a car to get to work, and replaced the cylinder while I was at work today, and it's now in the shop until tomorrow, to get the exhaust fixed.  (He figured we'd just fix it all at once.)

So yeah, I haven't been too productive this week. 

Sorry.

This.

It's better to have you in one piece and able to make comics later. XP

Bummer about your dog.

Yeah...it's kinda' weird to walk past where she was and...not have her there.

She'd never really been active, in the time I knew her, but it's still weird to have her gone.

And yeah, I'm also glad there wasn't an actual accident.  I like my limbs where they are.
