Grading papers at the dining table and listening to my Yahoo music station. Every so often it plays a great song (“My Little Town”).

The truck has been acting up again; last night R was unbelievably upset (at me, for never getting the Saturn up and running, but overwhelmed at the crisis as well). Today he went down to Selinsgrove (in a rental car) to take out an $800 loan. Buck’s had determined that the truck needed a new radiator and water pump and two universal joints; their estimate was over $600.

This right before I have to pay almost $600 in taxes. On the plus side, I did hear back from HR that I’d be getting a check in May, and one on June 30 as well. (Relief!)
