Last week: $500 on brakes and oil change for van.
Yesterday morning: $400 on emissions work for the Escort.
Yesterday afternoon: leave the office to find a flat tire on my van.

grrr

On the bright side - I enjoyed the beautiful weather while waiting for the tire-change guy. The tire-change guy was very friendly. The spare had just enough air to get me to the nearest gas station, and the nearest gas station had free air. I was able to get from there to the shop to pick up the Escort 15 minutes before the shop closed. While paying for the emissions work I asked if I could leave the van for tire work the next day; they said instead they would look at it right then. They replaced the valve stem, put the tire and spare back on their rightful spots . . . and waved me off when I went in to pay, saying I'd paid enough already in the past week :)

I hope that's all the car trouble for a while; Peter and I take off on Sunday for a week of college shopping, probably about 1500 miles-worth.
