What good is it?

I love my car. It's the perfect car for someone like me who is not very car savvy. I never remember or know how to check my fluids or even where they are under the hood so I can check them. But now I don't have to worry. If there is a problem anywhere, my car lets me know. If I am low on washer fluid it annoyingly displays a message and beeps at me until I take care of it. Up until yesterday, my little reminders had been accurate. If it said I only had four more miles to go before I ran out of gas, I knew I could get to Costco from work. So when I ran out of gas yesterday with supposedly "15" miles of gas left, my faith in my car's ability to tell me what was wrong wanned slightly. I hope that this was a once in a blue moon occurance, because if not I don't know what I am going to do!

I'm Rebelling

I've been hit with a major case of spring fever. I dream daily of summer, warmth, sandals and shorts. Yet somehow the weather doesn't want to cooperate. Yesterday I wore shorts and sandals and it snowed. As I was walking to my car I vowed that I would not let this cold weather beat me. I am rebelling against it and will continue wearing shorts, sandals and no jackets and hoping that if I pretend that it is spring, it will actually happen!
