good news, bad news

March 9th, 2006 at 08:10 am

Yikes, thanks for that article, DivaJen! I've been without Excedrin since Monday. No super excruciating headaches to speak of since then. I will definitely start limiting myself more - is that why my massage friend is always telling me my stomach is bad??

Good news:
I had a job interview yesterday and it went quite well. I'm not sure if I want the job, though. It would be slightly more interesting than what I'm doing now, but I can't see myself staying there forever, either. It may give me more graphic arts and Macintosh experience, though, which appeals to publishers. We'll see. They are going to let me know in the next couple of weeks. If it's more money, I'll definitely take it.

Bad news:
I brought my car in to the shop last night (finally). Russell will be pleased to know that I am no longer attempting to asphyxiate myself by driving the Deathmobile. However, the shop called this morning and it's going to cost $900 to fix (and that is WITH a AAA discount). Ouch. I was expecting it to be high, and I have an emergency fund to fall back on, but I am still bummed. I hate handing over my carefully saved money for something like this.

I may decide to use my tax refund for a Mexico trip instead of using it to pay off part of one of my college loans. I am tired of being practical! and I want to go to Mexico!!! I guess we'll see how I feel once I have the money in my hot little hands.

    Kashi, while I'm glad you won't be inhaling the poisonous exhaust fumes but it sucks it'll cost that much money to fix it. While I don't know the details of what they're fixing but even if they were to replace the entire exhaust pipes/muffler etc $900 seems a bit high. Unfortunately, the $900 you're putting into your old car you'll never get it back if you decide to sell it soon so you might as well hang on to it for a while and hope nothing else breaks. Wish there was something I could do to help. Definitely take that vacation in Mexico...

    OTC meds can cause such a vicious cycle. I try to really limit the excedrine. Sometimes, taking 600 mg of ibuprofen when I first start feeling tense/achy will do wonders, and I don't need to worry about rebounds with the ibuprofen. (Although it can be hard on one's stomach, I think, so it needs to be taken in moderation as well.)

    Glad it's going alright for you so far. Smile
