I got up early this morning and was at the mechanic by 8:15, and Ara's car was taken right away. The vehicle ended up needing two filters that I certainly wouldn't have known about, a "cabinair filter" and the "air filter". The tires were rotated and just about everything was taken care of that needed to be.
She has a tire on the rear that doesn't match the rest, and told me that she had a flat tire and put this "other" tire on the vehicle. Then the original "flat tire" was stolen, so she left the unmatching tire, which is far more worn than the other three on the car. I thought about buying her a good tire, but since both sides should be replaced at one time it would mean buying two tires. For the time being I let it go.
I was thinking about the long line at Target and realized that I normally don't mind lines because I talk to people who are also waiting. This time the woman in front of me wasn't very friendly, and no one was in back of me. Check out lines usually don't bother me and I couldn't figure out why I was so irritated - of course with all the employees just standing around they could have opened a couple more registers.
It's already 73 degrees and heading up to the 80's by the weekend. That is more depressing to me than the rain!
When I get this DEXA scan over with next Tuesday I've decided I'm not having any more tests, just so they "can see if anything has changed". I have also decided I absolutely won't even consider any medical procedures or surgery. They take a long time to recuperate from, and at my age I have used up all the "recuperation time" I was allotted! I can't believe I agreed to have this stupid scan, and at the main hospital that I have trouble driving to and parking. To show what? If there has been a change. Well of course there must have been a change in the 5 or 6 yrs since my initial scan, but what are they going to do about it anyway!
I guess I get b*tchy when I'm tired, and I woke up from a nap still tired and not feeling all that great. Better stop before I put my foot in my mouth about something!
