I am such an idiot. No, scratch that. I'm a LAZY idiot.
I f*ed up. I kept putting off changing the oil in my car and as a result some major internal damage was done to the engine. With the prices mechanics charge for labor nowadays it's actually cheaper to replace the whole engine than take it apart and fix it. Unfortunately the cost of a USED engine is more than twice what the bluebook value of the car is.
I'm majorly pissed at myself. Not only has this pushed back my chance at getting a motorcycle but I'm having to borrow the money to get my car fixed. More debt. More obligation. Damn it. *sigh*
On a happier note, I started work yesterday! I probably won't be online much for the first week at least. Not until I scope out the terrain and see if I can get away with it. *g* I LOVE THIS JOB!! The work seems easy enough, the pay should be good and the people just RAWK!. Everyone works hard but there is a lot of horsing around and joking that goes on. I love this place! Not much else to tell. I've mostly been watching other people take calls and trying to learn my way around in Lotus Notes.
I also had lunch Wednesday with the beautiful Marcy. We laughed and chatted over $10 gumbo and BBQ. Unfortunately they didn't have any $5 shakes. ("It's a chopper, baby.") We came back to my house and talked for a couple hours -- something we haven't had the chance to do in ages. :-) I can't tell you how much I love that woman.
Everyone play nice and have a good weekend!
