Like everyone else, I always have so much to do. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with it all! Usually I take care of one errand every day before or after work, but lately it has been wearing me out not getting home until late, or doing too much before I go in. This weekend I decided to make a to-do list of all the little things that I needed to do, and knock it all out in one day. That way I can just go straight home from work this week without having to stop off anywhere. So, I packed up my daughter and her DS in the car, and we started off strong, heading out about 9:30 dropping items off at the church yard sale, returning overdue library books, stopping at one pet store to exchange a recalled aquarium heater, and another one for more coral for our tank. Then we hit a roadblock- the car place. I had never been there before and had some great coupons, but they were slammed. It sucked about an hour and a half out of our day, wore us out, and added another 2 items to the list! Apparently, when you get new tires, you should get an alignment as well. I could barely afford the Z rated tires I got last spring, so I declined the alignment. Apparently it would have paid off, because I ruined 1 front tire and the other one isn't looking so good either! So, here is the moral to my story: Don't bother trying to accomplish all of your errands in one day, more errands will only arise, so pace yourself. Oh, and rotate your tires every other oil change!
