I hate real life.

Sometimes real life can be a serious pain.

I’m going to have to take my car back in to the shop, because my power steering pump is shot, or some such thing. All I know is, that on the way home from work, I felt the steering go all sticky, and it was hard to turn the wheel. So I stopped at a gas station and had a look-see, and sure enough, my power steering fluid reservoir was E-M-P-T-Y.

I bought some fluid, topped up, and (almost) pulled out of there, but it felt odd that the steering was still difficult. I backed up, checked again, and whaddayaknow, empty AGAIN.

Fuck.

I called my mechanic, and he told me I could actually still drive the old rattletrap home, the steering would just be a pain. Fine. So I drove home, and now my upper arm strength is amazing. Wanna arm-wrestle? Huh? Huh?! Yeah, come and get some, punk.

I’m so pissed. Mainly because it’s my son’s enrolment period, and this is an expense and hassle I can’t afford right now. Oh, and I just realized I’ll have to call my ex about this, and then of course he’ll have something to say. He’ll help, but he’s already footing the bill for tuition, and I don’t want to have to bug him about stuff like this, but he’ll have to know… and of course he’ll have something to say. *sigh*

I’ll find a way around it — I have to, because I refuse to let something like this get to me.

But right now, I’m frustrated, tired, and I miss certain people. So very much.

I need a hug, dammit.

    I’d be more than happy to provide all the hugs for you and your car. But I’d prefer just hug you and let the mechanic hug the car. Is that good enoungh?

    How long should an individual hug last before it is deemed too much?

    If I could give you an actual hug, I would.

    I hope everything works out for you. 🙂
