Oh F*. Trying to get out of an iced over downhill driveway I managed to kill my poor dear car's transmission.
A solid grinding noise, and lots of power loss going up the hill. Damn. Had to put it in neutral, to slide back down the hill and into the the same driveway.
My feet however, still work, and I have way too many layers of clothing, and still lots of food in the fridge, and a short supply of money to get me through the end of the month.
I know that life is a series of challenges, some we make for ourselves, and some are just random and there is no sense cursing them, but my challenge now is circumventing, and curing them.
But first, i owe a big apology to the poor car, which I strained to it's breaking point trying to get out of the damn driveway. I should have just waited.
Now I will have to wait a bit more. And... get more exercise walking.
