A Nice Day Off


Josh is on vacation this week. Lucky bastard and all that 😀 Today, I was finally off. I like my job, but damn, I was ready for a day to sleep in.

Not that THAT happened! We had to drop the truck off at the dealer because my battery gauge kept jumping around. It’s something we should watch but the part to fix alone is almost $600, and since it isn’t HURTING the truck while it’s in use, we don’t have to fix it. Same with the MAF sensor and the ABS brain 😆 Truck will be getting upgraded in a couple years, and according to Kelly Blue Book, is only worth a little over $4k, with a trade-in value barely over $2k 😆

Thank You Dad!


Thanks to my father, I no longer have any unexpected lights on (ABS/Brakes is expected and honestly, nothing to worry about. I’ve driven 3 vehicles previously without ABS). Prior Check Engine Soon light was my gas cap light. Makes me wonder if someone attempted to snake some gas from me, since the vehicle was sitting for so long, BUT it had been sitting at half a tank, so yeah, I doubt they got much).

But otherwise, it’s running beautifully. She has new spark plugs and my pads have 8k miles or so left on them (as Dad said, the life of my vehicle, since I’ve gone a whopping 26k miles in 6 years ROFL). She’s got a fresh 5 quarts of oil, new air filter, and new oil filter. No noticeable drips.

Oh, and did I mention the A/C is working. We tested it Tuesday, and trust me, it was working


Heater Works!


I was sitting in the truck this evening, waiting for Madison to finish with BIONIC Club at school. Ethan was in the backseat, grinning and talking like a fool.

I had to turn OFF the heater, even though it was 39F. THAT is why we refused to pay to have the heater core replaced. The thing WORKS. They just got crap in it when they did the intake manifold. Ugh!

I love my Chevrolet Trailblazer! She’s a little BEAST!

The Past Couple Days

Josh looked at a car today.
2011 Chevrolet Malibu.
7k miles.
Previous owner? GM. Show car.

I go look at it tomorrow.


E was not happy to hear a truck was no longer an option but nearly $4 gas makes it a pipe dream.
