Oh Well

I’m not going to hit 10k today. But I’m not going to stress on it. I accomplished A LOT today and that’s truly what matters.


I had to do some grocery shopping, but before I did, I made sure I unloaded the dishes from the dishwasher. They were ran the night before, so they were clean. WOO!

It’s All a Mystery


Looking under the truck, she notices a spot.

A spot of wet under a vehicle is never a good thing.

It could be condensation.

It could be oil.

It could be left from another vehicle.

There is no need to panic.

Just take in a breath and release it.

There is no real mystery. It is easy to solve.

The Costs of Owning a Vehicle

I’ve been looking into document scanning, because I want to send the estimates that we got when we got the Trailblazer looked at. The reason is because my mom is becoming something of a great deals parts finder, and Dad is the one who’ll be able to tell if we’re getting screwed on the amount of time and/or labor costs

So far, though, just telling Mom over the phone, she’s been going “Nope, that’s pretty much what we’d be paying too,” which is pretty spot-on to what we were expecting and hoping for. YAY! We’re not getting screwed.

Though $700 did HURT badly when we had to pay for it, but that was 2 sets of pads and 2 sets of rotors! AND they just CLEANED the calipers for us, instead of having us pay for that! That’s some awesome work from them. And the brakes definitely work. Found that when they gripped Saturday while driving.

Next up: TIRES. shudder Expensive bitches will be purchased. We want mostly all-terrain, all-weather. We do live in Kansas. We get ice, snow, rain, hail, sleet, tornadoes, mud, rock, gravel, paved, dirt, etc.

Blog 365 Failure

Since I’ve found Plurk, I’ve become a Blog365 failure. But, you know what, I’m okay with that. I’m still blogging, I’m still being real and myself, I just found another outlet.

We have the first day of school figured it out. Madison starts August 14th. Yes, you heard me right, on a Thursday. That day is from 8:45 until 11am. Yeah, super freaking short day. Insane, right?

I’m getting super freaking annoyed with this complex though. Today, pest control came through. That wasn’t unexpected. We got the notice at noon yesterday (yay, for so-called 24-hours notice, right?). Well, the maintenance man knocks on the door. I’m halfway to the door when I think I hear a key in the lock. Well, as I reach the door, it flings open, nearly smacking me in the face. My look of death made Bug Man (very nice, very respectable fellow, BTW) back up, but Maintenance Man just smirks. He kept the door WIDE open, even though I had the AC on, even after Bug Man tried to close it. GAH! WTF?
