    Quick teaser for the 2nd part of the book:
    *************************************
    Sarah climbed into her car and set the controls for her job. Then she turned to her schedule for the day while the machine took over and propelled her along the path to her job. Two clients wanting quotes on surgeries to save their dogs’ lives when the dog had already lived beyond its life span, 3 spays and a neuter, and
    CRUNCH GRNNNCHHSSSSSHHHHSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
    “OH FUCK!” Sarah grabbed the manual controls and tried to wrestle the car to the manual lanes before the failing vehicle lost too much velocity for her to be able to control it without the rudder and paddles. Almost, almost, just one more
    WHAM CRUNCH CRSHTINKLE
    (Oh fuck, I’ve been hit, I’m airborne, going up into the air lanes, not good, not good, come on, where the hell is my)
    WHAMTHUDCRUNCH
    (FUCK, hit an air car, fuckfuckfuckfuck, no control, hope I land……

    Nice teaser! Interesting concept - cars that drive themselves...

    In regard to the unemployment. I wouldn't hesitate for a SECOND to apply. Sure, you saved up and have money set aside for such an instance, but seriously! You are entitled to unemployment benefits when you lose your job. Your employer is required to set money aside for when employees get let go and is required to pay it (unless they can prove without a shred of doubt that you did something grossly wrong while employed with them). File, file, file! Save your money and use theirs!!

    ^this. Unemployment is a benefit of being a productive citizen who was laid-off through no fault of your own.

    I already have and am receiving benefits. Filed as soon as I was able to. Just because it hurts my pride doesn't mean I'm stupid enough to turn down money I can use when it is something I have "earned."

    My apologies. I thought I saw that you were holding out on unemployment but thought about filing to get by. I'll go back and re-read.

    Today was arms/ shoulders/ chest/ upper back weights, yoga, and will hopefully have walking/ jogging with mutt/ SIL.

    Let's not mention dinner.
    Walked at the local university for 3 mi with the mutt. It's pretty much a given that she's at least part whippet. She was friendly, wanting to play with everyone, ignored the birds, and had no clue what to do with the cyclists. The instant she saw a jackrabbit or a prairie dog, though, she was off like a shot, or tried to be. Damn near ripped my arm out of its socket.
