My wife pointed out how funny it is that those events basically started on the same day as each other, and here we are all this time later and they're finishing on the same day as well.
Ok, that was so worth it. She was so excited that she couldn't stop crying.
Welp. It appears I should start car shopping. My clutch is dying - the original, with almost 140,000 miles on it, so not a huge surprise. Tires are in need of replacement and my catalytic converter tripped the check engine light.
I could fix all those things, or I could take that money and put it towards a new car. Think I'll do the latter.
