My wife's quitting (always fun when the C*O tells you "in your position I would leave"....), which is good for her sanity. I think right now the plan is for her to finish out her degree so she can qualify for more interesting jobs.
Meanwhile, it looks like every department on campus is getting an 8-12% budget cut next fiscal year which is going to make things very interesting, and not in a good way. However, my advisor says it's likely I'll have some research funding in the fall!
Figured out that the MR2's low oil pressure was in fact the sensor wire being loose; tightened that up and things seem OK again. Hopefully I'll be able to get it legally on the road soon.
