One young Catholic family on a Journey towards Intentional and Communal Sustainability. One Artist, one full time Mama and two babies, we'll tell you about all our successes, and failures, as we try to make it in our overly Consumeristic society on just the bare necessities.

Uh oh.....

This is the entire reason we're doing this "experiment".

Yesterday, I took the girls up to the Mother Cabrini Shrine in Morrison, which is up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.  On the way back, I noticed a weird pulling in the brakes on our car.  We only have 1 car for the family, so we try to treat it like a baby so we don't have to be without it for crazy repairs. So this morning, I took the car in to have them checked.  We just had them checked in June and they said they were fine-but I just found out that they didn't check the whole brake but only part of it-let me tell you how angry that makes me!  Because now, instead of paying for them to clean and fix minor repairs, we have to pay for new brakes, pads and roters!  Almost $500!  I could scream!

Luckily, we're borrowing a friend's car for the week already, so we have a couple of days to figure it out.  Maybe we can find a friend who can do the work for less?  Long shot, but it's worth the try.

Anybody have any suggestions for our delema?  We already spent our spare cash on Joey's new wheel.  Ugh.  How much worse could this get?!
