Today started out well then fizzled out. Around 10am this morning I discovered my work truck had a fuel leak. They supposedly fixed it last week! Well $225 later it was fixed for sure this time but this put me behind 2.5 hours. The only good thing about this was that I got 2 quotes on fixing my transmission problem. Neither quote was for a new transmission so that’s why the news was sort of good. The quotes were for rebuilt ones.
1st quote was for $5000 + Labour + taxes and the 2nd quote was for $3750 + Labour + Taxes. I forgot to ask what kind of warranty was on the first quote but the second was 1 year or 30,000km(18,641 miles). That’s not great because I go through 70-80,000km/year. So really the warranty is for 6 months depending on time of year I have it installed(put more on during spring to fall). I’m going to do some more research but in the end I think this will be the route I’ll be going. $5000 or so is much more manageable them $15,000. Although there will be some risk that the new rebuilt doesn’t last as long as I’d like it to.
As for my exercise today I took the day off after my heel was bothering me a bit this afternoon. Waiting for my truck repair I was standing a lot in my work boots and the padding is not existent so I think that’s why my heel was bothering me. I plan on trying my second run when I wake up tomorrow. Depending on how that goes I may or may not play badminton again tomorrow night.
Guess I’ll go watch the final 5 pairs of Ice Dancing skaters go for the gold before hitting the hay. It’s the only way I watch figure skating! Looks like another Canada/USA battle.
