Here we are at the last month of the year. It doesn’t seem possible, does it? But the change in daylight and the impending cold tells me it’s true. If I have to go out somewhere after dinner now, I feel like this:
Speaking of going out in my car, I got new brakes today. I’ve been going to the dealership for oil changes, and last time they said my back brakes were dangerously worn thin. Brakes are expensive! It seemed like a good time to find a new place that might be less pricey. So I went to a shop recommended by friends, and the owner called to tell me that in his opinion, I could probably go a while longer on them—about as long as the next oil change. What?! Who suggests NOT doing work on a car? I opted to go ahead since I didn’t want to gamble during crappy winter weather. Plus as I suspected, the cost was less than at the dealership. However, I appreciated his honesty. He was also extremely nice and upbeat. I’m thankful for the recommendation and that I gave the new shop a chance. Fingers crossed his work is as good as his attitude.
