Everything Changes, But Not as Quickly as You’d Like

I’m a little money ahead going into the new year, so of course my check engine light has come on and both my fridge and my water heater seem to be leaking. I’d be bummed, but I have to admit, I feel really lucky that I got a little money ahead before this stuff happened. Though I was also hoping to set it aside to print the children’s book. Which, I’m hoping, is not going to be that expensive. I don’t know. Ugh. But excited ugh.

The trouble with signs and omens is that I never know how to read them. But I’d like to take this as a sign that the year of things I feel ambiguously about is over, from one dead of winter to the next.

My friend, S., has been waiting to hear about three things and yesterday, she found out that all three things are happening for her.

And the person who is reading the Ben & Sue project keeps emailing me just to tell me that she likes it so far and it makes me feel like maybe this will be the year I find an agent.

  1. Check enginge light can be serious or…….
    My Frontier check engine light comes on anytime there is a drastic and sudden temperature change such as when it’s 70 degrees today and below freezing the next morning. It just has to be reset-doesn’t mean anything is really wrong.

  2. If they forgot to reset my check engine light when they changed my oil, I’m at the point where it would start complaining. And since it’s just blinking and going off, I’m pretty sure that’s what it is. I’m still going to have them check it, but not until after the first of the year.
