Saturday Surprise

Finally after a week, my car comes back to me. The cluster panel is still not 100% right but I am so done with that shop not getting stuff right the first try that I’m not going to worry about it as long as things show up right most of the time. One bright spot though which totally caught me off guard. As I get ready to pay for the new battery I had installed, the girl at the counter tells my that my battery had been paid for already by someone who wished to remain anonymous. Not sure of who would have known where I was having my car serviced, but thanks to whoever it was. I found it odd but not going to argue. I guess there is still good in the world.

Really???

Took my car back to the shop on Jan. 20th to see about that faulty panel that was installed in my car. The guy at the repair shop told me he would have to order a new one. I kept my car until they located a new panel and kept calling every couple days for an update. Finally, after two weeks, they said they got it in and I could bring my car in to have it installed Tuesday morning. Awesome right? Yeah not real newsworthy but wait, there’s more.

Monday was going fine until I got ready to leave work. I normally leave around 4:30 or so on Mondays, before most everyone else, but this time I ended up getting ready to be on my way just after 5:00. Wouldn’t it be just my luck as I turned the key to start my car that the damned thing wouldn’t start? Of course by this time everyone else is already gone. All I wanted to do was to get out of there, grab a couple things from the store before going home, then sit myself down to a nice bowl of leftover chicken soup and chill with some classic Doctor Who on the television and unwind. But NOOOOO! After calming myself down a bit, I called the person I live with to ask if he could come to my office to give me a jump. I didn’t know what else to do really. Threw off my whole night, and my friend’s, and now I need a new car battery just to add to things I really don’t need on my plate right now.

I once thought I had a future. How is that for a joke? The whole universe laughs.

Cluster F@%!

After about a week in the shop, my car finally comes back to me. Had some wiring issues and the cluster panel (the thing that controls the dashboard readouts) went haywire and needed replacing. Took a while to get the part but they did finally. Works fine other than the lights under the dials and the mileage readout don’t show up so need to take it back in to get it checked out. Such fun, is it any wonder my blood pressure was high this week when I went to see the doctor? And here I thought it was going to be a good month.

One Bright Moment

Call me crazy for being proud of a complete stranger, but I need someone to be proud of. Congratulations to Benedict Cumberbatch on being appointed President of LAMDA. Yet one more accomplishment under his belt.

My People Trying to Find Me?

Apparently the Detroit area had a close brush with a meteorite tonight. Exploded in the air of course so nothing major, just pretty freakin’ cool. Didn’t see it personally but heard something and dismissed it until I noticed the news trending on Twitter. Maybe my people finally come to look for me? Or maybe nature just waking us up a bit.

2018 Not Off to a Great Start

Well I was positive that 2018 would start on a positive note but I guess I was wrong. I have been unable to get any decent amount of sleep and after a week and a half of having to share my car with the person i live with because his car died on New Years Eve, my car decides to go wonky. My gauges are totally loopy and my service light won’t go out even after I got my oil and trans fluid changed and I have no headlights other than my high beams. Really not needing the expense right now since I just spent a bunch on the aforementioned fluid changes, my health insurance has reset so of course have to pay full price for prescriptions until deductible is met, doctor appointment next week, and I have not switched car insurance companies so still paying too much on that, and on top of all that my back is starting to bug me again and it is booger freezing cold outside. Just kill me now.
