So I've been meaning for some time to get my car in for it's regular maintenance, and also to have it cleaned. It's been years since it had a solid cleaning, and currently I park it under a tree.
Plants were starting to grow out of the dirt that had accumulated around the windows and on the floor. No kidding.
A friend of mine is currently between jobs, so today I paid her to drive it to the dealer, for the oil change and detail work. And, as it turns out, brake pad replacement.
Now my car is shiny again, it gleams.
I'm getting more convinced about the concept of "outsource your life".
