The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves: Recall Edition

Last week I dropped  my car off at the dealership for warranty repairs and to fix some recall issues.  They kindly provided me with a rental car, which I appreciated, until I got it for the first time.  Ugh!  It was stinkiest rental car in the history of rental cars.  It smelled like someone had dumped 100 gallons of the cheapest perfume available all over the interior.  I thought I could live with it for a day, then I discovered that my car wouldn’t be ready until Monday or Tuesday.  Nope!  Not only was it smelly, but it was dirty, too. There was no way I was keeping that car over the weekend.  Thankfully the service guy at the dealership arranged for another one.  While this one doesn’t smell, it is just as dirty, so in the future, I am avoiding Enterprise Car Rentals. Yuck!

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves- Powerless Edition

Had a crazy week, which was capped off with no power Friday evening.  We had a massive, crazy storm blow through, which I got caught in because I was running errands for work.  I went home to let the dogs out, and was relieved to see that we still had power.  That relief turned to complete dismay after work, because by the time I got home, hours AFTER the storm was over, we didn’t have power.  UGH!  To make matters worse, none of my “essential” electronics – my phone, my Kindle, my laptop- had much battery life left, so I multitasked.  How?  I took the dogs to the park for a walk, and left my phone and my Kindle charging in my car!  I have now exercised every day for at least 45 minutes for over week (I usually take Friday nights off to clean the house), and my Kindle was locked and loaded for a weekend of reading in case we didn’t have power restored.
