My car wouldn’t start this morning. Luckily, my parents live nearby, so my daughter was only about fifteen minutes late to school. Then, I called AAA and waited around for them to come. The guy arrived and it wasn’t the battery. I was hoping it was the battery. That’s a relatively cheap, easy fix. He speculated maybe the starter or the alternator. But he did manage to get the car started. I didn’t turn it off and just drove it to my mechanic. He thinks it’s probably the fuel injector or something in that area. It’s a twenty year old car, so it could be anything. He wasn’t able to get to it today. He said he’s really busy with the pandemic. Apparently people aren’t buying new cars right now, they’re getting old ones fixed. So, I got my mom to pick me up. She took me back to her house, and I had a little time to kill before I had to pick my daughter up from school. We baked cookies. Then I got my daughter, she had her guitar lesson, we ate dinner, pretty typical night except I don’t have a car right now.
It’s amazing how one thing messes up a whole day. I’m completely exhausted now. I didn’t do any writing or apply to any jobs or anything. So, this is my post for the day. I had ideas. I was thinking about trust and expertise. I have a couple of follow ups I want to write based on comments I’ve gotten. I just don’t have the energy.
I did have the thought that blogs started as web logs. I’m kickin’ it old school. You get a description of my day. I hope to have something more interesting tomorrow. Now I’m going to bed. I’m not even going to watch the season finale of The Mandalorian.
