Today was the day my car was supposed to get fixed. I woke up feeling pretty darn good this morning. I'd slept pretty decent last night, and was in a great mood as I started my day. That kinda fizzled a bit after some miscommunication with the garage that was fixing my car, but it evened out after that.
Ya see, I got new tires recently. Like a month ago, or two months ago? Time's flying these days so I can't remember when it was. Anyway, since then I've noticed my brakes squeak and screech sometimes, and I've started to think they make grinding noise if I'm coming to a complete stop. After class the other day I'd stopped and made an appointment for today to have them checked and fixed. When Casey got home from work (yes, he's back to work when I'm off, hehe) he followed me into town so we could drop my car off. The guy called within an hour and said my brakes were fine. I asked about all the noise. He said after getting new tires sometimes dust or dirt or rust gets knocked loose and into the brakes. He said they could try lubing them. I said yeah, do that.
Then I asked about the windshield washer fluid tank that I'd wanted replaced, that I'd told him about when I originally made the appointment, that he'd written down right next to 'brakes' by my appointment time. He said they hadn't looked at it.
He talked about the brakes a bit more, said it would take about 45 minutes, and he'd get me an estimate for the washer tank.
Um, okay, dude.
Two hours later he called back and said my car was ready and he'd have a tank quote for me when I got there. So I woke Casey up to drive me back to town. The dude then explained about the tank, that it's more complicated than just popping a new tank in, and it's a dealer part, yadda yadda. I told him I'd have to get back to him on it because he said he might need the car for two days, one to get the fender off and see just what's wrong, and then time to order and get the part. I've been without windshield washer fluid for most of the time I've had this car so I'm not too worried about not having it now. I'd just thought since it was in for brakes I'd finally get that fixed too. I guess not. Oh well.
Then we came back home and Casey went back to bed because he has to work tonight.
I got two more cards in the mail today. I also FINALLY got this! I'd been looking online for some Vikings stickers and just could not find any. All I was seeing was car decals and window cling type things. I eventually went to Etsy, where I figured if I couldn't find any at least maybe someone could make them. I found one shop that offered these, so I ordered one sheet. It took nearly three weeks to get here. I'm a little disappointed in that TAT but the stickers are nice.
And the girl included this . . .
A free sheet of different planner stickers. How cute!
I've also decided I want to start collecting fox things. See those kissing foxes in the upper left corner?
I keep forgetting to post these next two pictures!
A couple weeks ago when I took my mom shopping, I noticed this life sized Santa display on top of the freezers. Kinda cool when you first see it. But then I noticed something.
Why on earth would they put these creepy hoods on the reindeer?! It makes the whole thing look scary and evil now. *shudder*
That's about it for today. I puttered around on the internet and got laundry started, did a bit of reading, and played with the cats for a while. Now I'm waiting for hubby to get back with our usual Friday night fish dinners, and then I'll probably read a bit more while he watches something boring or weird on TV.
Do you think those deer look creepy?
Do you think three weeks for a sheet of stickers is a long time to wait?
Did you do anything festive on your Day 18?
