Monday Update

I had a productive weekend. I spent a lot of time working on Juliecam.net, the forthcoming update to qtkat.com. Don't bother hitting the link just yet, the site is far from finished. But we're very excited about where the site is going. It has some neat features that I don't remember seeing on other cam sites. Stay tuned for that.

Happy birthday to my mom. It was yesterday, actually. I had some nice flowers sent to her today.

Taxes are paid. I'm waiting for my big $17 check from the Feds.

And I might need that money more than I'd counted on. I talked to Ken from Elk Grove Honda. They told me they found some more stuff they want to fix in my engine. It needs an electrical tune-up, and I'm overdue for a new timing chain. And as long as they're in there, he explained, it would be cheaper to fix it all now. So I told him to go ahead.

Estimated Cost: $1,500 + Parts

They haven't gotten my head back from the machine shop where it's being inspected and possibly resurfaced. And he also said something about cylinders. Blah blah blah. He said it might be done on Friday, but it could take as long as until Wednesday. I'm thinking I'll be without my car again this weekend.

*sigh*

I'm poor.
