Bored and a bit bummed.


Recommended Posts

How are you guys and gals doing?



Not much to do at work.

Bummed cause vacation is definitely better then work.

All raises at work were suspended until further notice - and I was due for a nice one (beats losing a job by a long shot!)

Red car has a dead battery and needs two new axles very soon.

Black car got a flat (I hit a damn rat trap and the spring mechanism punctured the tire and embedded into it). Also needs scheduled timing belt replacement.

Tracy broke the drivers door handle mechanism trying to open a frozen door on her Sol.

It's cold (see the above three items for extra sadness - I hate working in the unheated garage on cars)

It is approaching Christmas, which has always been a depressing time of year for me.


The only positive note is that Tracy's 30th b-day is in a few days and she should really like the gift I got for her.

Sorry to hear about that, hopefully things will improve. Might want to consider a space heater for the garage?

I'm busily hacking away at probably about 20 pages of BS homework, so if your misery wants some company, Mine's ready to hang out.

I have a heater. It's just not the same compared to working on the car in September or October.


In other depressing news: One of my good friends, who has Macular Degeneration as of 5 years ago and lost 90% of his eyesight in a month's time, went to the doctor last Friday for a routine checkup only to find out that same day he has Leukemia. He has a 3 month old daughter that isn't even allowed to visit him at the hospital because they immediately started intensive chemo and he is bedridden and in a form of quarantine to prevent infection. Talk about a crapty 5 year plan....


In good news: Last Wednesday I became an uncle. Little Allie Marie was born.

In not-so good news: My sister is pretty much loosing it. She has banned my other sister and my mom from coming to her house to visit the baby. Let the family drama begin!


Got new snow shoes for the commuter. 14" steelies FT....W?

Wow... according to the HF main page.. I'm the only member online... freaky. Hooray for all-nighters working on stupid papers that are nothing more than a waste of time... We're ignoring the fact that I procrastinated all day... o:)
