New tire happiness & more

March 2nd, 2012 at 06:28 am

I am really enjoying my new tires. I remember my late mother-in-law lamenting about spending money on things that don't "show" -- i.e. tires, mattresses, etc. Makes me chuckle because I have never been about the "show." I love it that my new tires make the ride so much better. I feel so buoyant and secure.

I won't do my February recap till tomorrow, because I am still collecting money from others for our joint gift to our departing co-worker. It has turned out to be quite complicated, with some people in for the dinner but not the gift, others the opposite, and some giving for both.

I saw the doctor yesterday for a regular checkup. I now need to make several more appointments. I'm not sick, but I do need to get some routine labs and imaging, and I'm finally going to see a specialist for bladder issues.

With my two bosses leaving, a new temporary reporting structure has been set. For the second time in my life this has happened: the one person I had already pinpointed as someone I would NEVER want to report to -- I will report to. This on top of all kinds of extra work and responsibilities falling on me will make this a very stressful time. I am glad I am so near retirement.

    I got new tires back in November and have been very pleased. Well worth the money!! After all, we use them just about everyday....just like a mattress which I think is worth the investment, too.

    I remember the first time I got new tires for our old Audi... it suddenly lead to the feeling that I was driving a sports car! It's also added insurance for better handling and safety, too, so that's a big plus. Smile Jerry

    Why is it doing the collecting and gift buying for a group gift is often a big pain?

    Glad you are enjoying those new tires.

    Man, I feel for you on the boss thing. It's brutal working for someone you can't imagine working with. Good luck.
