I finally got my car back today, for good. The total damage: just over $1200. Thank goodness for the extended warranty I purchased with the car. That saved me over $400. The tires came in Friday, but the Price Club would not let anyone else install them. The mechanic at the dealer let me have the car for the weekend (with the admonishment to not drive much), and the performed the final wheel alignment today.
I know I haven't been writing here much lately. Things at Company O. have been VERY busy of late. Honestly, there hasn't been much time to write at work and I've been pretty tapped out by the time I get home. After to an autumn and winter of job-related uncertainty and re-organization, it feels good to be finally "putting all hands to the pumps" as I believe the British say.
Looming changes are still afoot. Mrs. Geek and I are still talking real estate, and continue to discuss our choices. My resume has also been getting some interest from hiring managers at a couple large, well respected software companies. I am torn about what to do; I don't want to change jobs now if I will be relocating in a year. I probably should 'test the waters' though... just to get back into practice searching for a job.
