Car wash day!

Monday, April 01, 2013

When you live in the northern states, you learn early when to wash your car and when NOT TO... Today was not a subzero day, so I really splurged and went through the auto car wash for the ultimate car blaster treatment. I only do it once a year to clear all of the salt and ice-melting chemicals off the car body and under carriage.
I had not been to a pay car wash in a few years since my dealership has their own for courtesy washes for customers, but this place change theirs into all automated one last summer,, I could not believe the difference..
My guy is squeaky clean and so shiny I had to avert my eyes when the sun hit his hood!
Banking, credit union-ing, calls to hospital and insurance company for double billing my E.R workman's comp visit to my personal insurance.. bummer..
People were very nice though and I hope this resolves the issue and I get my hundreds of dollars back to my insurance for real use this year.

Hoping things slow down here this week,, DD is settled, mom has to go through OT assessment and OT, have two birthdays this week, mailing gifts all over the place..

Supposed to get more snow tomorrow.. typical spring weather...

    I washed my car today too! Got outside and did it by hand. It's been a long time since it's been washed and it looks 100% better. Here's to clean cars! emoticon

    Sounds like a productive day. Good for you. I'm in the South and we have to know when and when not to wash our cars too. For one, whenever I spend the money or a significant amount of time we get endless rain w/ wind so my car end up muddy. But right now we are having a bad pollen issue and my white car is now neon green. Doesn't matter if you wash it or not the pollen will accumulate. As soon as this is over it'll be love bug season. If you dont know what this is let me tell you they are about 1/2 to 1 inch long black insects that come out to mate but do so by attachign themselves to each others' rear but with their heads facing opposite directions. I really thought they were 2 headed bugs when I first saw them. But yeah they end up all over your windshield, hood, grill, etc.....
