How I saved $250 and walked 6.37 miles

I know you're on the edge of your seat wanting to know how I saved $250!
Well ...
I'm turning in a leased car and the airbag light has been on.  So when I had it inspected the other day, I was told that if I didn't have the car serviced and the light turned off  there would be a $250 charge. The car is still under warranty ... so why would I want to pay for something that is covered anyway.  While waiting for the car to be serviced this morning ... I walked 6.37 miles.  There you have it! Oh ... I removed the parking decal, too.  So I saved another $50!  Now ... If I could only find the missing key that would totally make my day!
Turning in a leased car is expensive ... but not as expensive as buying a new car.
I saw the following headline in the waiting area:
That's for you Sarge!
I am having so much trouble reading Sacred Hearts.
Book Group is Wednesday night, so I'll continue to give it the old college try.  I'm on page 86 of 406.  Yikes!  I thought I was at least on page 100.   I must have been dreaming!
I ordered a new pair of size 8s and 3 new pair of Thorlo's!  The size 8s arrived yesterday.  Very exciting.
I also ordered 2 new bathing suits for Provincetown.  Can you say "ugly?"  Those are going back today!


  1. Hey I bigified it so I could get a good little looksee, well worth the time, grope-a-dope, that's funny.

  2. I'z confuzzled. If you had to pay $250 for the service, how'd you save $250?

    Math is hard...

  3. I didn't have to pay $250 for the service ... car was under warranty. When the inspector looked at the car, the light was on and if I hadn't taken it in I would have had to pay $250. Wait ... is that confusing? I have to read my post again.
    Oh well ... I saved $300 today. Trust me.

  5. Excuse me, Janelle, but when you wear your boobs outside your tank top, odds are that someone's gonna bump into 'em. Just sayin.
