Saturday morning started early for me. I didn’t sleep well last night, so I got out of bed early, took a shower, and waited to leave for the oil change appointment for the Fiesta. I’m glad I arrived early for the appointment because the garage can usually start things early, which means that things are finished sooner.
Of course there are drawbacks to waiting for the Fiesta to be ready. I’m sitting in the customer waiting area and composing this blog post on my phone while most people are zombified by the TV that is way too loud for my taste. In fact, the TV being on at all makes it too loud for me. I’m making a personal goal to avoid even looking at the TV while I have to be here.
I hope that Hal (person) will have a plan for the rest of the day by the time I get home. As predicted in an earlier blog post, plans with “friends” fell apart due to their lack of commitment. I made certain that the plans were off yesterday when we got the first indications that the people were preparing an excuse to cancel at the last minute. That behavior really pisses me off. As far as I am concerned, there will not be a next time for that bullshit to happen, I am done with those people, and not only the apostrophes, but the word “friends” will no longer be associated with them.
The best news of the day was that I only spent about 20 minutes waiting for the oil change! After the trip home, Hal told me that he wanted to go shopping, so we spent the afternoon out. He ended up buying a new backpack. We got back home and I was going over the finances and realized that I am doing better, but I still need to be careful. After some soul-searching, I canceled an order for a guitar that I really wanted because of some medical expenses for Spartacus. He is becoming senile and requires some additional medicine. Spartacus is more important than a guitar.
That wraps up a busy Saturday. More to talk about tomorrow, I’m sure.
