sometimes getting a bit miffed does help, other times it does not--glad it worked for you --sorry to hear it was a repeat issue.
corolla here has some strange bumping noises--which it has had for a while so not completely worried, but still annoyed that it has not been mentioned the last 3 times the car was in....but soon its winter time and when the snow flies the corolla gets the garage, so I think she is hoping for snow really soon. though hubby also says we should have a cracked piece under the front bumper checked this winter as well, so will try to do both at the same time.
my halloween decor has been slowly creeping out.. a pumpkin here, a ghosty there...will get the rest out later this week as I have to get the box out (its on the bottom of the holiday decoration boxes of course)...its one of my favorite holidays to decorate for (probably has something to do with my sister having a halloween bday....).
had some rain today and looks like the rest of the week is going to be wet as well...and cool, am looking forward to having the balcony door open again for a bit (and letting the a/c have a day or week off).
