Ow and Double Ow

Ow: I got a call late yesterday afternoon from the GM dealership informing me that it's more than a burnt-out switch keeping the fan from running in anything other than off or high, but is several different pieces, including one that GM doesn't stock anymore and will have to be located elsewhere: new estimated cost of repairs between $400 and $500. Fingers crossed that they get it repaired by tomorrow because I'm supposed to drive to Oregon on Friday.

Double Ow: I woke up this morning with a stiff back -- so stiff that I could barely walk. I hobbled around the apartment and used the back-massaging machine we have, and got a little bit better. Still, I feel quite disabled today. If they call me from the dealership telling me the van is ready for pickup, I might have to take the bus instead of walking, even though ordinarily walking 2 km is trivial.
