Awesomeness and less then awesomeness.
-Well the baby of course. She get’s first dibs at awesomness
-Our land tax assessment was too high last year (we purchased at less then the estimated value) so we overpaid which means
starting today, our mortage payments dropped $80.00 a month for this next year. WOOT perfect timming. We now pay $150.00 less
a month to our mortage then we did to rent, including the land tax. How wonderful is that. Makes wiggle room for the unexpected household
expenses and for super expensive oil and wood we need to heat our house.
The less then Awesome.
-MS Vista. Boo Vista. Dave bought a new laptop a short while ago and it came with Vista and we have had nothing but problems with it. Anytime it does an automatic update the laptop crashes. Last Saturday, while we were sleeping Vista did an automatic updated and somehow hidden encoded malicious software got uploaded with it and crashed our system. We kept getting the blue screen of death. When we called Dell they looked into it and are the one’s who informed us of said malicious software. We had to reformat the whole damn thing…for the second time in 4 months. Boo. They offered to sell us a Windows 7 upgrade for the low low price of $200. Blow me. I want to go back to Windows XP not forward to more crappy operating systems.
-Dave got brand spanking new winter tires put on our vehicle last Friday. Yesterday-Monday..i.e 1 business day later, he got a tire puncture from a nail. Of course that is just our luck. Luckily the same garage who installed em laughed at us and just charged $20.00 to fix it.
-Our vehicle is an automatic off the lot 2007 Chevy Uplander. Just this past 2 weeks (READ: 1 month outside warranty window) it has starting having issues as though it were a standard transmission. What I mean is that sometimes ( 3 times so far in 2 weeks) when we accelerate after being stopped at a red light, the car won’t go for a minute, as though it’s out of gear then it clicks back in and all is fine. 2 people have said it could very well be the transmission. IF this is the transmission going on a brand new low milage vehicle 1 month outside warrantee, GM will be hearing from a lawyer cause this un-fucking-real. Let’s hope that is not the case.
