Paid for vacation ticket; took dog to vet (going to have to give him meds for a month for an infection between his toes); sent client project scope and  PQ, but I think they panicked when they saw the final amount. Said they'd call me back. Haggling is such a crap part of freelancing. Going to pick up my car from the garage tomorrow. It'll cost me over USD 1,200. Wish I weren't…
