Life’s expensive

So this morning I picked my car up. The radiator had busted a seam, so I needed a new one. Luckily that was all that was wrong, as I had them do the state and emissions inspection at the same time. Four times in four weeks is a bit unexpected. At the same time, I think these are the biggest repairs I’ve had in at least a year.

Tonight I met with a roofer about the estimate to replace the roof. Not cheap, but it needs to be done, and soon, since we still have the tarp up there. I still haven’t heard back as to when the other roofers I contacted can do estimates, plus these guys were the ones that put the tarp on the hole in the roof. So we’re going with it – hopefully the last big expense before Jill starts school (other than tuition, of course).

  1. Want to trade? Infant daycare for Veronica is going to cost more than the mortgage.

    Okay, not quite the whole bill. More than the principle + interest + homeowners insurance, slightly less when you include the flood insurance.

    I used an online-referral service to find a roofer. It worked pretty quickly. The name escapes me but I probably have it at home.

  2. Thanks, but we’re set up – the new roof happens on Thursday (weather permitting).
