Our 2006 Chevrolet Silverado seems to be in need of a brake job, sigh….More money being spent on transportation, will it never end? If it isn’t one thing it is another with the vehicles that we have at this point. It seems that each month one of our vehicles is in need of something or another. My husband is pretty handy with a wrench but today’s vehicles all need the attention of a computer and so many specific tools that he just doesn’t have handy, so it is almost impossible to do anything other than take it to the shop for the required work.

It depends on the vehicle and the credit card balance at the time of the required work. This time I decided to use the Internet and see if I could find a decent auto repair shop online that might be able to assist us with this task. I found a website Repair Pal that allows you to type in your required location, required service needs and the type of vehicle in need and then leads you to companies that are out there that can help you. It was pretty cool actually, I found a repair shop that I had never heard of, so I gave them a call and I have an appointment for the morning. We will see how it all pans out and I’ll keep you posted.

Checked my email late last night. I was worried that we were going to lose power again with all the seriously extreme weather that we have been blasted with for so long. I made sure that I got all of my prescriptions filled, got a full tank of gas, milk, toilet paper and charged my cell phone, just in case.

I was tickled to hear that the Ableton Software Controller that I had ordered for my brother-in-law’s birthday yesterday, arrived in the mail, and his is thrilled with the gift. You never know when you order something online if it will arrive in time. Usually it does but once in a while something happens, which throws me into a panic. I have learned to order things in more of a timely fashion, just in case.

I love hearing from my best friend who moved to Texas almost 4 years ago. I miss her so much, we have been best friends since the 4th grade and you couldn’t ask for a closer and better friendship then what we share. Thank goodness for cell phones, email and Instant Messaging, that way we can communicate almost on a daily basis. We always have so much to talk about, it amazes us both that we don’t run out of things to say to each other.

She bought a Chevrolet Silverado when she moved down there. She wanted a new and reliable car to depend on while finding her way around her new home town. She has found the need to find a reliable car repair and service center in order to get a brake job done that she knows is needed on her fairly new car. The Internet has made that task a much easier one to tackle. She found a great site at repairpal.com that has assisted her in finding a good Dallas auto repair shop.

She isn’t married and has no one to turn to for help with car issues and she needs to make sure that the place that she picks will do her and her new car good, all the way around. With vehicles it is a never ending battle keeping them up and running. I wish her luck.

OK, summer is right around the corner and I’m more than ready to start getting ready for the outdoor activities that I’ve been neglecting due to the nasty weather that this winter has brought us. I’m looking online at getting some new Sneakers or possibly a pair of quality Running Shoes and start running and exercising. I’m not getting any younger and I really need to step up to the plate and start taking my health a bit more seriously. The big “Five O” is fast approaching and it’s up to me to keep myself in the best shape possible.

I have a bike that I have been meaning to take down and out of the garage, but haven’t managed yet in the last 2 years, sigh……I even had a brand new pair of Bike Shoes  and Running Shoes that were bought and given to me as a Christmas present a few years back and they are still in the box in my closet. I love Shoes and have a closet full at my disposal and I’m always on the look out for new ones to adorn my feet with! I’ve always loved shoes, used to drive me mother crazy. When I was married I used to get all kinds of crap from my husband about my love affair with shoes.

Anyway online shoe shopping is a great way to find some wonderful variety of shoes. If they don’t fit or look right I just return them and move on.  Shopwiki  is a great site to use in order to find all types of products, I use them quite a lot. Online shopping is the only way to go for me these days and is becoming more popular each and every day all around the world, amazing isn’t it?

Today on the way home I was coming around a corner at 35 mph and hit a patch of Black Ice. I ended up with the rear end off the side of the road for just a bit before I managed to get it back under control right before the SUV, that was coming at me, hit me head on. The look on the guys face as we went by each other will stick in my mind for a very long time!

danger, danger
