It's worse than I thought.

Our money pit minivan has no demonstrable exhaust leak, meaning that my headaches are psychosomatic, or evidence of undiagnosed brain cancer.

But, on the negative side, we still need to pour $1400 into it tomorrow.

So, to sum it up,

$400 on vacation last summer
$1000 on tires on the way home from vacation last summer
$800 in repairs a month or so ago
and $1400 tomorrow.

This means, I'll have to drive this car until I am old and gray.

On the plus side, with this headache, I'll be old and gray in no time.

Like you said in the previous post, I'd have guessed it too. Drive with the windows cranked a bit? (That's what my dad does, even in the blessed cold of winter.) (I say it helps keep the nausea of his driving at bay. The guy likes to drive in the gutter.)

Maybe it's the thought of the bills giving you the headache;-)

I'm new to your blog and sincerely sorry about your van but love that you are able to laugh about it. :)
