We bought a new (used) car. A 1999 Chevy Tracker (remember those? Use to be Geo). It's got 4 little hamsters under the hood and is so full of cheap plastic that it squeaks in various locations when you turn a corner. Still, it's in good shape, gets good mileage, and most importantly, it was in the budget. We really wanted that Audi A4 wagon (zippy!) but *sigh* it was not in the budget.
More Good News: we went and had our taxes done today, and we'll be getting a giant refund. Which we will then have to spend on fixing our lumpy kitchen floor.
Some Not So Good News: I went to the ENT this week, after my doctor told me he thought I had Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Unfortunately, the ENT is not convinced, and thinks that I might have early Meniere's. Which will be kind of shitty, if that turns out to be the case. I'm going in next month for a balance test. The Dr. did a partial Epley maneuver for the right side, to see if it would help, but it didn't. In fact, I felt terrible the next day. He also couldn't trigger an episode in the office (of course). What really sucks is that I can't have caffeine for 2 days prior to my balance test. :-( I'm going to feel shitty indeed.
