Well, after almost a week, I have my car back. Sassy Sparta needed a new spark plug, which I knew meant something else was wrong, since she just got new spark plugs three weeks ago. It took a while, but finally they figured out that she needed new ignition wires. She is running smoothly and seemed as happy as a car is capable of to see me.
So just under $200 later, we are home and happy. Hopefully after shelling out over $800 in the past month for her, that was the last big repair she'll need for a while.
I also realized that I am an idiot. I thought I had mailed my ED stuff off. Uh, no. It was sitting in my car. I sometimes stick mail in the side of the seat and then forget about it.
This might be why they haven't called. Doh. Maybe I should take off all the parts where I brag on how smart I am. Because clearly basic tasks are too much for me.
Charlie and I went on a nice long walk tonight and we have another planned with a different friend tomorrow. I got a cheap pedometer and am going to make sure I get my 10000 steps in every day. I had done so well for a while with trying to eat right and exercise, but then this summer blew up emotionally and I gained back the weight I lost.
Now I just need to figure out how much walking I will need to do in order to have gelato at the new place I have found...they have pistachio and limoncello. Damn them.
