Hot on the heels of my joy at finding out the vet bill was half of what I had expected it to be, an indicator light went on in my car. Today it is at the shop. I am hoping that it's something minor (and cheap). But they haven't called yet so I'm a little worried....
I had to get up fairly early to get out to the dealership this morning. My dog was making pathetic little whimper noises as I did so. I came back in asking, what's your deal? YOU get to go back to sleep! Which she did. She did drag herself out of bed as I was leaving to relocate to sleeping on the sofa. The other dog was sleepy and blinky too. I kicked them both outside for doody duty. I have no sympathy.
A couple of reasons I am hoping the car repair is inexpensive: one, I need new glasses desperately; and two, my dad and grandmother are making "ungrateful children" noises at me through my mother. So I am hoping to plan my visit to them sooner rather than later. Also, my grandfather turns 80 in a couple of weeks and it would be nice to gift him with my presence for that (that's how my grandmother would look at it; me personally would want to be left alone on my 80th birthday).
This is also the reason I need to STOP BUYING FOOD. I bought all these lovely, healthy groceries with which to feed myself, and then I keep finding/having reasons to pick up food. One night I had to do errands and it was late/I was exhausted/blah blah blah. Last night was all of that plus I really wanted pizza. I'm still not feeling 100% over my cold and sore throat. Sounds weird, but I am hoping that it really is an actual sore throat sicky kind of a thing and not, say, erosion of my esophagus from acid reflux. Because one of those is not so big of a deal and doesn't cost a lot of money to get over.
And I'd like to hang on to my money at the moment.
Happy hump day!
