I had three appointments to start with: car in for an oil change, me in for the annual smash-a-body-part and take its picture, and later this afternoon, my weight loss plan consultation.
So... naturally, they find enough "other" issues with the car: tires old (I knew that), tranny fluid looking iffy (I knew it was getting time for that, too), fuel pump... Bottom line, they wanted to keep it longer and take more of my money (funny, they don't give you tires free for the life of your car?).
Not a biggie, as I had a book along to read, and I was within easy walk of the hospital from the car place... but the paperwork was back at my house. So, had the car dealer drop me at my house, and I decided to walk the 3 miles and a smidge back to the hospital for the test. Warm out there, folks. Then I walked to the mall to have a light lunch before picking up the car. Home now, showered, and well over my step count for the day.
I feel good!
