Any other week this would have been big news. Take a deep breath. But the week you are running around with your head cut off, closing on a house, and trying to get ready for a move; it kinda slipped through the cracks and I keep forgetting about it. On Tuesday, after the closing, on my way to work, I was sitting at a red light in my Corolla when all of the sudden my foot on the brake hit the floor and I lost all power and resistance in my brakes. So I inched forward to make sure I could still stop. After determining this was possible with a little effort and the car pulling to the left, I slowly made my way to work keeping maximum distance between me and the other cars.  Oh well, the mechanic said it should be a minor repair for under $200. Some days I wonder if I should take up the old internet panhandling thing again.
