90: 82982



I have got to say that just doing little tasks are tough. Before we had the girls I had a ton of time. I could go anywhere and do anything without time restraints. Tonight I put the girls to bed at 7:50 and headed outside to change the oil. I had purchased new air filters and oil filters this weekend and wanted to put them in the cars. I put the air filters in on Saturday when I got them, but didn't have time to change the oil at that time. To change the oil it took me about 40 minutes. I had a really hard time getting the drain plug out, that is what took me the longest time. I worked at the end of the driveway and used both the street lights and a flashlight. It wasn't ideal, but it was what had to happen. I got it all done. The mileage on the van is 82982. I have 3,000 miles until the next change for the van. 85982 here I come. Next task, getting the oil changed in the car.

On a side note, I wore a tie today. It was pretty hot at school today. No air circulation mixed with 80+ degree temperatures made for a tough day. It was good, I had a lot of people asking why I had a tie on. I just told them that I had an interview and left it at that.

Way to add photographic evidence about what the engine and odometer look like! It makes it more believable that you did this...

I realized that the blog was looking pretty boring. I saw how your pictures were sprucing your blog up and realized that I needed to get on the ball. I'm not making any statements or promises about future posts, but I think it looks better having evidence. Which is why I am sure you took the time to run with a tie on 4 times to get the right shot at Mars Cheese Castle.
