We all know how this week started (well, actually how last weekend started....) but now lets take a quick look-see to see how it ensued.
Hmmmm. Most of it pretty boring.
Very boring, in fact. So boring there were several times when I was in danger of falling asleep at my desk and slamming my face into my keyboard, risking a permanent tattoo of the alphabet (in QWERTY-fashion) across my forehead.
But today? Ah, today was anything but boring. For many reasons, but here is the one I've decided was most blog-worthy (do y'all do that too? Go about your day thinking, "hmmm, is this event blog-worthy? No? How about this one?" I do that all. day. long!)
Today my car got serviced.
It had been doing an awful shake and shimmy when I happened to creep up past 60 mph. If I happened to hit 70? Well, let's just say it could get kinda dicey.
Admittedly, I've ignored it for a while ('cause really? I'm driving a tin can with wheels - what else would you expect it to do?). I finally mentioned it and a curious "fluttering" noise to my guy when he changed my oil last. He looked into it. I was more concerned about the fluttering noise, if the truth be told. I figured it meant my wheel was about to fall off. Turns out the fluttering noise was nothing - just a funny spot on my tire. Nothing dangerous.
Ahh, but the shuddering? Apparently not good at all. On many levels. And? It would be the reason my tire might fall off - while I'm rocketing down I-40 doing
Apparently my lower ball joint was going - that really sounds like I need a hip replacement and nothing at all to do with a car....
And, apparently, I had it repaired just in time. According to my guy - if I'd hit one deep pothole this morning.....let's just say it's entirely possible we wouldn't be having this conversation right now.
So a mere $250 later I am apparently A-OK to be rocketing down I-40.
I'll have to test it out tomorrow....
