I am now the owner of a brand new alternator! Yeah me. At least that mystery has been solved and my vehicle is working well. The trunk doesn’t look well as the old battery tipped over and some battery acid leaked out. Even though I put baking soda on it, I think too much time had passed. The carpet in the trunk looks chewed up. I took my van to the car wash that does detailing and had them wash the trunk. It looks like only the carpet was affected.
Last week, I managed to get a workout and a couple of walks completed. Worked both my shifts. I did not connect with my cousin in the week as she was under the weather. She did pass by very early this morning to drop off her boots. I have not tried them on yet, but she did say they were not very comfortable.
On Friday, when I dropped off my old battery at Costco, I took a wander to the mobile kiosk and played with the Samsung S9. Not sure why I did that as it is beautiful. The camera is fantastic. It makes my S4 look like crap. It reminds me of when I change out my TV last year. The resolution is incredible. I want it but I don’t want to change my current phone plan so I would want to buy a phone free and clear. And with my upcoming trip, it would be used. It is not a need. I also looked at the S8 and the A8. Both are also a huge upgrade to what I have.
I am on the fence as my current phone works. It is just dated and is always running out of space. There is $300 difference between the A8 and the S9, with the S8 being smack in the middle. There are small differences between the S8 & S9, not sure it is worth the $150 pre-tax price difference. Things to ponder.
I am on the schedule for 4 shifts this week at the PT job. We have started summer hours at the FT job, so this Friday I will be leaving at noon. Bonus I do not have to work that evening so I should make plans while I am thinking about it.
Aside from my usual loads of laundry, I managed to get on the ball and roasted some vegetables and made rice and fried chick peas. I am trying to get back to a more plant based diet. Plus I eat less when I bring my lunch to work. Good for the waist line as well as the budget. This is a priority for me as I tried on my summer capris and it did not go well. I do not want to buy bigger clothes. So I have to make “lifestyle” changes. Now to convince myself to get up in the morning and do the workout.
