Here I sit, cuddled up on the couch under a quilt and drinking a cup of coffee, berating myself for putting things on the back burner yet again,
Tuesday, I had planned to take the car to the garage for its annual inspection, then run to AAA to renew the registration as they both run out December 31. Going down the hill I realized that all of the sudden...no brakes. I made it safely to the garage, and the nice man gave me a ride home as the repair would take a little longer than expected previously...still no problem, as I had today off and could pop down to update the registration and stay legal...ha ha ha!!
Well, here it is 7:00 PM, and the car still is not done. No way to get to AAA and I have no way to get to work, unless it is done before noon tomorrow, but the way my luck has been running, with a simple inspection turning into a $1000 repair, I am not holding my breath. But at least, there is only 29 hours left in 2009.
This year (2010), everything I plan will be expected to cost more and take longer than I expect, and, will be completed way before the deadline!
