How do I know that.....well I changed the tires on the car, from my Winter tires to my Summer tires. So it can't snow until I get the Winter tires back on in December.
Now I must admit, I do find going to the garage quite stressful, as it's not knowing what else could be wrong with the car, and if they do find something wrong with it, how much is it going to cost.
Tuesday I took it for a Spring tune up which includes changing the oil and changing my tires. I sure it includes other things, but I have no idea what. I know pretty sad, but I totally trust them, which is a good thing.
Anyhow, they came back with me needing to have my ball joints changed. They may as well have told me I needed to fly to the moon, for what that meant. Anyhow after much explaining they are like the hip joints for a car, so I need to have that seen too but it will have to wait until next month, as it's over $500 to have them fixed.
I also need some more things to be done, but again that will have to wait for a couple more months. All these things are due to the age of the car, as it is nearly nine years old, but as it only has just over 117,000 km's on the clock I have no desire to change it.
Do you know a lot about your car? Are you mechanically adept?
It was bitter cold on Tuesday. When I hung out the laundry on the line it immediately froze. However I did manage to get the laundry dry outside and just hung it on the clothes horse to air in front of the fire.
I haven't been able to get upstairs in the attic this week yet, so am hoping that today will be the day to get some jobs done in there. Namely sanding the nail holes I filled with putty, and then hopefully painting a primer on all of it. Dh is busy building a window seat in the attic, so we will have storage under it.
