Some good and bad things happening…
Bad news: our roof started leaking last week and needs replacing. Drats. Just shingled it myself (with some help) 14 years ago, and it should be good for another ten years. I am not sure the shingles we bought are as durable as advertised. Good news: we hadn’t started some of the other home renovation projects we had planned and might be able to afford this.
Bad news: Our car transmission is broken. Good news: They finally found the problem; we bought the extended warranty when we bought the car; we have a free rental (Pontiac G6) in the meantime.
Good news: This is my first full day of writing my thesis. Bad news: I only got to 80% of my target 10 pages per day.
Good news: I start writing again tomorrow, and all week long.
