Off Season Blues

It's Christmas. Loads of stuff going on, though little of it car related. Sheri finally took exception to having a stack of Hoosiers in the dining room. She expressed her ire by stacking them in the front window, and stringing lights and garland around them. She topped them off with a case of Amsoil and a star. Very funny.

I'm very down. Truck still not fixed; there's just been no time. I've all the parts for it, just need to put Humpty back together. I need two uninterrupted days to do that. Not going to happen until close to the first event of the year, and that means I won't be able to get the racecar modded like I want.

Of course, even if I could mod the car, I don't have any money to do so. I need to buy an R3 device, in order to instruct safely. That's going to kill the budget for data acquisition and the reserve I was saving in the new engine fund. I hope my harnesses and helmet are still good for another year; have to check that.

So much to do. I feel like I'm in a deep hole, listening to race cars go by up above. Perhaps the new year will bring me a better mood.
