Deciding On A Car

My day is just getting started and I have a lot to do. Writing this was one of those things so I thought I would knock this out while I am waiting for my laundry. On thing that I miss about living with my old roommate John was that he had his own washer and dryer so there was pretty much never a wait.  Today I had three loads to do and was lucky that there were three machines available in my apartment complex. There are four machines total and usually when I go up there to try to do my laundry there is only one open. That means I either have to leave and come back or do one load at a time. I guess the laundry gods were on my side this morning.  When I’m done writing this I’ll have to fold all my clothes (which I loathe) then figure out what I am going to eat for breakfast. I have been trying to eat healthier but might be naughty and go get some fast food for a change. I haven’t had any in over two weeks and am craving it hard core.

When I get home from that I need to sit down and get some car insurance quotes on a couple of cars that I’m looking at. I have been sort of in the market for a while but have not been looking seriously until the last couple of days. I found three that I really like and want to see what the insurance is going to be on them before I go look at them. I also have a couple of other things that I need to do online like pay some bills and stuff like that.

Later on I am going to take my current vehicle and give it a good wash and detail the inside. A lot hinges on what I can get for it as a trade-in so I want it to look as good as it can. I will probably spend about two hours doing that and I hope the extra work will pay off in the end.  Actually, I may even let my friend Kenneth do it for me and buy him a case of beer or something.  He's pretty into cars and details his own cars all the time.  I have a couple of errands to run too which I might do before or after my car. I need to pick up some groceries and my cats need more food. I need to cut back on their food because they are going through a bag every two weeks and the bags are 15 pounds each. It shows too if you saw them as they are pretty heavy. I should play with them more too as they never get any exercise.
