Something of a disaster

Oldest Brother's car is toast. He got caught in a flooded street this morning and the car is useless according to the garage. Our only option is to somehow get him a new one. As far as I can see, the only way to do this is for him to take out a loan with me as co-signer, or if that fails, for me to take out a loan and buy the car myself and sign it over to him. Either way it's going to be a big problem.

That took up a good chunk of the day, emotionally at least. Aside from that, I didn't get a chance to talk to the FWiB, which sucks, but we did e-mail.

Had pizza for dinner because I needed comfort food. Then went to my meeting which was good.

Came home and called Oldest Brother and we discussed alternatives. He'll need some kind of way to get to work until he has a new car, too.

And just to top it off, got an e-mail from Arisia that they are changing hotels because of a labor dispute, and all hotel reservations will be cancelled and have to be remade at the new hotel.

I'm going to bed now.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. My meetings and the people there.

3. Oldest Brother wasn't hurt.

4. The Kid offering advice.

5. Denise offered Oldest Brother a loan of her car for the weekend.

6. Bed now.
