Today is Open House at my school...and I have to DASH from work to my obg-yn appt. at 330 (20 miles) and THEN go back so I'm in for a lot of driving...I just paid $32 for gas yesterday at 2.37/gallon. I think we pay even more for gas than Hawaii does. So my classroom is a complete disaster and I'm so behind on correcting stuff- ACK!! And then while they're nice and we get 1/2 day tomorrow, we still start in the AM...I thought we had all voted to start in the pm so we could sleep in. I'm going to get home at 10 tonight, ugh.
THEN, the idiot engine light went out in my car and so I took it to the mechanics to have that fixed...300 gone. Yesterday I was on the freeway and my car started 'screaming'! Then thunking really loudly...so I pull over and the tires were fine. So I looked in the hood (like I would recognize something wrong!!) and then I looked under the car...it's a VW and they have these 'protection covers' under the engine...well it was pretty mangled and I had been dragging it down the freeway. Grr...they didn't bolt it back up, right? So I went back to the mechanics and they took it off (of course claiming that I had driven over something- uh huh). I'm just going to leave it off because it's not a necessary feature and everytime I get my oil changed I have to pay extra because of the extra chore they have to remove it and put it back. But I have to find yet another mechanic! I always have something go wrong at the mechanics and I don't like to go back. (Previously when I had my tune up, they only put in three spark plugs)!
Am I done? Yeah, I think so! Happy WEdnesday everyone!!
