Car update

It turns out that the structural integrity of our brake drums have been compromised!!! What does that mean? Oh it just means that we'll be dipping into our tax refund a little earlier than planned. Hillsy dropped off the car at a "trusted" mechanic near work and was repeatedly instructed NOT to drive the car home - apparently the brake drums need to be replaced immediately... we don't even want to think about what could've happened if we ignored the noises that all of a sudden went away.

The cost wasn't TOO bad, not high enough to justify getting rid of it and just buying a new car - so for now we're thankful we still have our hand-me-down, hopefully she can hang in there for another couple of months.
