Under Construction
San Francisco Carnaval Parade

July 18th, 2004

Less Stressful
Not a bad day. I'm happy to have another three days vacation coming since it's taken a full week to go through detox, eliminate the white noise with naps, walks and watching many movies. I wondered after the first few days if it wouldn't take the whole vacation plus a day to come down and, life being fickle, if it might not just start again tomorrow.

I have three Honda dealers computing prices on an Element; two appointments tomorrow, one Tuesday morning. I hope to make the arrangements Wednesday. I'll give my Toyota to a suitably warm and fuzzy charity - it runs, it's smogged, it has no trade in value - and get on with whatever it is I'm supposed to be getting on with now that I've written five years of "I need to buy a car" entries. If I were young, just entering school, I'd study psychiatry. As it is, too fuzzy headed for schooling, I'll find my idiot within through the journal. Less stressful.

I'll believe the car when I see it.

Me too.
