Things have definitely been a bit crazy here lately. Along with school starting and getting a weekend teaching job, my car finally bit the dust.
Grover (don’t ask), my thirteen year old Camry, finally died. Toyota’s go forever, they really do. But one problem they had with the ninety’s models was oil leaks. Grover, like many other Camry’s, developed a small oil leak back in 2000. As annoying as it was, as long as the oil was checked (and added if needed) every morning, the car was still perfectly fine. However, Grover has lived in the garage until I moved away to school.
After an eight degree night, I went to check the oil and it was completely empty. Now at 262,256 miles, Grover wont hold oil at all. Now the time has come for the joyous task of car hunting. But, I suppose it could always be worse… at least Grover didn’t float away. =)
