What did you do today?

The weather was so glorious today. Highs in the 50s, sunny . . . such a beautiful change from earlier this week. I had the grandest of plans. I needed a good day today.

Instead, I ran errands and spent 3 hours working on things for work next week. I then took Mitzy to get her brakes looked at. I logged a good solid 4 hours there. I watched the sun set and this beautiful day draw to a close. I saw other customers come and go. I read 4 auto repair magazines. 7:00 closing time came and went. They test drove Mitzy 413 times. They told me the part wasn't "taking" so they would work on it some more tomorrow as soon as they opened . . . I should call and find a ride home. I called Aunt Dianne and asked her to come; she hopped right in her car. Bless her. They told me 5 minutes later that the part finally "took". Called Auntie D back and told her she could turn around. Thanks anyway, Auntie! I wrote a check for $150 more than I currently have in my checking account . . . savings account, prepare to be pillaged.

This was most definitely not the good day I've been craving. That will come tomorrow, maybe. If not tomorrow, then maybe the next day. HOWEVER, lest I sound negative...I have some killer new brakes, yall! I nearly slung myself through the windshield when I stepped on them for the first time. I'm going to have to learn how to drive all over again! Plus, since I'm such a frequent flyer there, they topped off my oil and filled my (3/4 full) tank up with gas.

Next time you see Mitzy, remember to tell her how pretty her new master cylinder and wheel cylinders are. It'll make her feel special.
PS---My favorite movie of all time is on tonight. This day may turn out to be good after all.

  1. Man, I hate car repairs! The guy talks and all I hear is blaah blah, blah, Ca ching, blah, Ka ching. None of it makes a lick of sense to me. I feel like no matter what I am getting ripped off. You will get your good day, when you need that fast stop and it is there.


Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
