I've resolved to finally say goodbye to the old Subaru (after some months of hesitation) and will see about getting the vehicle towed by one of those buy-a-clunker services. Then I can focus on looking for my next car. The next car doesn't have to happen immediately, but I expect to be looking to buy some time next year.
My financial picture brightens somewhat in January, as I'll have one or two credit card bills being finally paid off by then. Plus I'll have been at my current job for a full year, and I'm reasonably confident I'll get a modest pay increase and/or a better position.
This Thursday I'll probably just spend the day at home, maybe get some more work done on Genesis.
