Fortunately, I was unusually ahead of myself with cleaning her room (because procrastinating taxes) so I have over half of it steam vacced and dry and the other half planned for this evening, but it's a little tighter than I had thought.... Still, I'm still way ahead of where I usually would be so there's that... (no taxes done, tho.... i've kind of glanced at them and filled in two lines...)

Turns out she thought it was Wednesday til she checked earlier....
We’re packing up after a week with the young people... Mama’s gonna need some comfort.

She's having a nice time socially distantly catching up with her friends in the back yard. It s going to be hard when she leaves knowing where she's going back to, but her college semester starts mid August. It is all online, but she wants to be in her own place with her own things and her significant other

Who the f*ck knew that the University of Phoenix was so far ahead of their time?

I wish her the best.

At least two things are making me a tad apprehensive:

Ten days, no Gravdigr.

Can't find missing cellarites category.

I was very apprehensive that working the election (which is a paid position but I did not do it for that) would completely fuck up my unemployment insurance -not just for that week but onward....

...but it seems that it maybe didn't. I just filed for the last two weeks, and my payment was reduced for the first (which included election day) but was regular for the second.

I guess time will tell for sure...

What might be making you a tad apprehensive?

Put my little Cherry Bomb (m'car) is the carspital Thursday. I've got a laundry list of things that need to be addressed, and decided to take care of a couple of them. The brakes are completely wonky. The rears are jerky when ya first start the car, and they lock up the first coupla times ya use them, then they're fine, well, they're ok. I'm not sure if the fronts work at all.

Also, most of the time, on a cold start it wants to idle at like 2000 rpm. It's an old throttle body fuel injection, and no telling what's wrong there, I know fuckall about that.

Between not-so-easy-to-find-parts and labor, I'm expecting to spend right around a thousand bucks.

And haven't even started on the front end. It needs a bumper cover, the actual steel bumper behind it, brackets for same, the hood latch mount, a headlight bucket, two headlights, two parking lights, air dam. The ragtop has a hole that needs to be re-repaired, too. The weather-stripping is also pretty sad in spots.

I may not live long enough to get this car right.

You are not obligated to get it right, just good enough to make it safe and you're comfortable with it.

I said I would top out my investment in this car at $2500. That included the purchase price (I got $200 in the car, not counting what Uncle Donald gave me back in the spring).

A $1000 repair bill will put me perilously close to that number.

well then if it looks like heading over, pick and choose the most important bits, and save the rest for later or leave them be forever. If you got it perfect immediately, you'd be bored AF after all. Just do enough to make you happy
