It’s always some thing

So we took Mike’s 2010 Chevy Tahoe in this morning to a different mechanic place here in Huntley for an oil change and a quick once over check. We have used one other mechanic place since we moved here last March. Fine. We planned to pick it up in an hour or so then take it to Lake Geneva for our little two-night holiday  treat getaway. The mechanic just called saying it’s unsafe to drive and the ball joints, bearings and tires all desperately need replaced. We’ve been hearing some strange friction grinding sound for a while. The other mechanic who checked it said it was fine. What the hell? SO we’re leaving it to get the repairs ($$$$$) and taking my new Kia Sorento that now has 32,000 miles on it. I love my car.  But now, of course, we take the hit with this friggin Tahoe expense.  Like Rosanne Rosannadanna said “ It’s always something....”.

It’s very hazy and overcast out today and there’s an icy mist in the air. I always feel better when the sun is out. I’m fussy that way.  I’ve decided for my new year resolution to try to be more positive, be less sensitive and not let people and things get under my skin. Every one has a story I may not know about, so why let peoples’s bullshit get to me?  Ignore, bypass, sidestep, overlook, LET IT GO. This too shall pass. Put sensitive Suzy back in her box. Mike always tells me I need to toughen up and get a thicker skin. I get most offended by those insensitive thick- skinned rhinos roaming about. Do I need to be a rhino too?

I’ve had this feeling the last couple weeks that something big is going to happen but I don’t know what it is. Some big event, tragedy, death..... don’t know what it is but I can still feel it in my gut.
