More weather

I had to take my car in for service this morning.  Normally I just ride my bike home, but I was thinking ahead today, which was good.  As I was turning my keys over to the valet, the heavens OPENED.  Fortunately, we were under cover!

I just waited there -- until an hour in when my service manager told me bad news: he needed the car for a while longer and it was going to be a bit expensive.  Sigh.  On the other hand, Aria did everything he could to save me money and it ended up being 1/3 less than originally quoted, and let me drive a rental free.  Of course, it was a 2013. The idea is to make you want a new one, right?

I drove home and got my daughter and we ran errands.  We were in between storm fronts, but were able to go to her favorite Asian stationery store, have lunch together at Panera, and go to the first Michaels store.  Then Aria called that my car was ready.  We dashed over there, traded the 2013 for the 2006, and decided to visit the Michaels near my house.  As we finished there, the skies were turning dark and it was definitely time to head home.

So WHY did we go to two different Michaels' stores?

From the $1.50 bin!  Woo-hoo!

Look at the rhinestone sticker when flash is on!

Ooh love the sticker! Where are you going to put it?

My car needs...something... Again. Sigh. The engine cuts off while I'm idling sometimes. Fortunately it's just been while I was stopped (mostly) so I don't think it will happen when I'm on the interstate. But I'm just not very excited about spending MORE money on it at this point. I'll take it in eventually, cause even if it makes more economic sense we can't really afford a new car.
