My husband begins his new job today. It is really a very old job (he's held the position for 12 years) with a new company, a larger company that seems to be of more substance and quality...all really good things.
However, I did not reach 40,000 words before today; so now I'm feeling doomed. I've got my story mapped out and I actually know what I'm doing with my MC; but I just seem to run out of time each day and less writing is getting done.
On a completely different note (but one that is humorous)...
My husband had that wedding in Yosemite (click here for more about that) and driving his Honda Civic with 250,000 miles seemed a bit of a gamble; but he made it there and back. The only issue? His thermostat went into the "hot" zone as he was arriving, but a mechanic checked it out and gave him the "A-OK".
Just to be safe, my darling decided to take the car to the local dealership (where we get all our service done) and have them double check everything.
Oh! We were so cavalier yesterday! As we are walking out of the house, my husband turns to me and says "Just watch 'em find something that is going to cost more than $2000.00 to fix!" To which I reply, "It will be something huge and we will have to buy you a new car!" Oh, we were laughing at our silly selves!
Five hours later, the service man is explaining to my husband how the pistons are cracked and blah, blah, blah, and it will be at least $2000 to fix - but probably more and even that doesn't guarantee anything because the engine has so much mileage...
So my husband had to buy a new car last night...a new, used car (we can't afford new new). And we are left feeling like our words came back to bite us in the ass!
