So far this has been an interesting week. On Monday, the check engine light came on in my car when I started to head to work. I was worried because of the issues I have had in the past two months. I planned on voting Tuesday and I was determined not to miss voting. The Senate race in North Carolina was one of the biggest in the country. I did not care for either Kay Hagan or Tom Tilas. I voted because I believe it is the duty of a citizen to vote. I am a limited government person. I believe government should only be big enough to take care of the things it is responsible for. I believe neither Hagan or Tilas will out the things that need to be cut. I do not want to get into a full out political rant here so I leave it at that. I am glad that I got to vote and things went smoothly and quickly when I voted.
Okay now for the car, I took the car into the garage this morning. It turned out to be a fuel valve that needs to be replaced. The valve alone cost over $300. My mechanic said I should be okay to drive around with the valve stuck like it is for now. I will need to get it replaced before I get my car inspected. The mechanic told me the valve is stuck right were I would want it stuck if it got stuck.
I hope that I have good sales during the Christmas shopping season so I will have the money to cover the car repair. I have the next two weeks off. I plan to work on listed as much books and other stuff on my online store while I am off from work. I also plan to do some blogging too.
