Well, the good news is that I am now back in possession of a fully healthy Honda Accord. The bad news is that, after an oil change and replacing a defective oxygen sensor, the princely sum of $419.12 will appear on my Visa bill.
And the worse news is that for the first time since getting laid off Oct. 2, I did not send out a single résumé today. I’d like to tell you that it was because I was treating myself to frozen drinks at a waterside bar. Sadly, the effort was consistent, but the results were nil.
I still think I’m doing a good job keeping my spirits up, but cracks are starting to appear.
