Almost better

I think I'm almost over whatever it is that I've been sick with. I suspect it's been a succession of colds, abetted by reduced resistance brought on by stress. My voice is gradually returning - it's been reduced to a high, harsh croak these last few days - and I'm just hoping my coughing spells haven't caused any other damage.

My car passed its annual state inspection yesterday without any problems. This car turned ten years old about a week ago and passed the 255,555 mile mark yesterday, and it still gets mileage in the high 30's. It's had about six sets of tires, a dozen changes of headlight bulbs, about six new sets of wiper blades, one replaced exhaust system, at least one new timing belt, one battery replacement, a handful of air filters, a couple of EGR valves, a few PCV valves, and over 80 oil changes. It's still going strong.

Time is ticking away. Better get focused on the house stuff this week.
