New Tires

There are things in our everyday lives that we consistently overlook.  Have you ever realized that?  It's like, you have to take a step back from them in order to even notice that they are there.  The first time I realized this was when I went home to the Adirondacks to visit my family after living in North Carolina for six months.  I had never recognized the beauty of the Adirondacks (at least not fully) until I had been away from them for some time.  If the opportunity arose, I would move back in a heartbeat; unfortunately the job market in upstate New York is not fabulous for myself of my husband. 

Anyway, yesterday my hubby asked me to run an errand for him; simple enough.  He had a new tube put in our lawn mower tire and I needed to pick it up.  When I got there I really started to look at the shape my own tires were in and was eerily surprised when the auto-mechanic told me that they wouldn't even pass inspection!  I had been riding around on unsafe tires for God knows how long.  (Thank God for keeping me safe!)  So, an hour and $500 later, I am safely riding around on 4 new tires.

I don't really know what the moral of the story is or if there is one, but I did realize that there are some pretty important things that I need to pay attention to now since I'm no longer living under Daddy's roof and the tires on my car are one of them. 

On a brighter note, I purchased a Kindle Touch today!  Anyone have one?  Suggestions?  I'm so excited to get it next week!
