See You Next Year

My car wouldn’t drive anywhere December 22nd... it's still in the process of getting checked out. Yesterday Hot Rod took a trip to the transmission specialist, and hopefully some time next week I should know whether or not it is indeed a transmission problem, and whether or not it’s too costly to fix. I’m really really really hoping it’s not a huge problem and is fixable, otherwise I shall be without a car for a good period of time until I can somehow save up to get another one. Sometimes life is rough.

Another year’s Christmas is over (yet, the Christmas season goes on… isn’t December 30th too late to be playing Christmas songs on the radio???) I didn’t go home this year, and for the first time, I wasn’t with my parents or any of my siblings Christmas Day. I spent my holidays with some relatives a couple of hours away from here, after many many hours on the bus. I was hoping to never have to take the bus ever again, but somehow these things end up biting you in the butt and you get stuck and have to do something you really really don’t want to.

I was to be in Chicago for New Year’s, but unfortunately with Hot Rod’s heart attack, I lost my ride to Toronto to meet friends for the drive down, and also any disposable income I may have had will now be going towards vehicular costs rather than pleasure trips, so alas, I am at work today instead of in the Windy City, and I’ll be here in Ontario for New Year’s Eve instead.

2004 has been an interesting year... full of many many good things, many changes, and many things I did not expect. It’s interesting to look back and see where life’s road has taken us.

Here’s to 2005. I’ll talk to you next year.
