Tax Refund Hubris

As soon as I got excited about our impending tax refund, my car decided to overheat and need a new fan assembly.  And then the girl had her first orthodontic appointment here in SoCar--and he says she needs thousands of dollars worth of braces.

So though I briefly fantasized about putting the down payment on a car that would be perhaps a decade newer than our '92 and '99 Hondas, it looks like it'll be the down on the girl's braces.

Oh well, her smile is worth much more than a car made in the 21st century.
