the irony. @ 08:06 pm

I have been without a vehicle for six weeks because I did not have the money to get it fixed. I now have the money and I can't find a mechanic who can look at it for at least 10 days :( I'm supposed to be at Simplefaire on Saturday...... I haven't been to any event since PENNSIC!

Very cool site


www.repairpal.com

They give you estimates (adjusted for your area) Of what a specific car repair should cost. I actually tried it out by putting in the last few repairs i had had done, and my costs were in the range they gave. So i put in the repair i need done to see what the estimate would be. My thoughts on it were that from my limited knowledge I thought the repair should be in the 300 ish range. The dealer had told me 800 (which i felt was way overpriced!). And repairpal.com said 250-380. Just an interesting piece of information.

They also have an iphone and android app--haven't tried that yet, but will download it eventually.

Well, had my gray van looked at today. It's going to be more complicated than I expected to fix. Will decide whether or not to fix it after I get the GMC looked at. My neighbor was thinking it might just be a hose that needed replacing, which would be quick and easy and cheap, but not so it was the boot ? that was leaking power steering fluid. He also looked at the GMC and believes that it is only the power steering pump which is a fairly minor job. Let's keep our fingers crossed...it also needs a tire, but that's easy.

For all those who need their Lady Guen Fix :) @ 09:32 am

I've updated my Etsy shop with lots of the items in my store. Almost everything has free shipping. So if you've missed me at events, here's your chance...

It is friday night. Again, I am not getting ready to go to an event. It will be at least two more weeks until I can think about getting the car fixed. I've put a ton of stuff up in my etsy shop and most things are shipping free. But that's about all I can do.

my internet is fixed (Hurray!) I managed to get some work over the weekend and get it done even without the internet. The cable box only needed to be reset for everything to work okay. So a few things are going my way! Hurray.

The worst partabout beingwithout a vehicle here is how isolating it is. My neighbors are all nice enough but not people I'd choose to do things with. Internet is out except for what little I can do on my phone andnow the second tv in the house died. Feel free to give me a call. 508 208 7811

Lady Guendalina's Closet Travels @ 10:53 pm

My event schedule is wiped clean as of now. I have no transportation. I can't get to anything. I will inform all when I start getting to events/craft shows/conventions again. There is some hope that I may be able to get things straightened out by the end of the month. But as of right now, I just don't know.

Until then you can shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Ladyguen?ref=si_shop

or ask for anything in particular you need. I can still get to the Post office to mail things.

Looking for work @ 06:48 pm

Okay, just in case--I do transcription--if you know anybody who needs lectures, conferences, interviewed transcribed, please think of me. I also do other kind of document preparation. Right now I'm looking for as much new work as I can find.
