A Post

Someone complained to me today that I haven’t posted in my blog in a while. I’m not quite sure what he was trying to imply, but it’s only been four days since my last post. If you consider all the huge month+ long gaps between some of my previous posts, three days is nothing.

Anyway … my car is temporarily, perhaps permanently, decommissioned. Unlike some people I know, I don’t name objects besides people and animals, so I will refer to my car as simply “my car” from this point forward. ANYWAY … I noticed this white smoke coming out of the exhaust as I pulled into my driveway last night. It seems that this is a result of antifreeze leaking into the engine and burning with the gas. My car is at the shop and will be looked at first thing in the morning. The guy I talked to is going to pump some special sealant through the coolant system to see if that will fix the leak. If that doesn’t solve the problem, I’ll probably have to decide between ditching the car and getting the head gasket replaced. Thanks to some help from Scott Vetter, this might not be as costly as it sounds.

I go back to school tomorrow evening and have a full day of class and work on Thursday. I can't say I'm looking forward to it, as I've enjoyed my Christmas break.
