Odometer Obsession...

There is a Trader Joe's across the street from the gym. But, it doesn't open until 8 and these days I'm long gone by then. I need Trader Joe's Blue Cheese Dressing and shredded Swiss and Grueyre cheese. I could wait until Saturday but why? So I hopped in the car and went to the one on Capital Hill. Things are arranged a little differently but I couldn't find the cheese or the dressing. Finally I went to customer service. No dressing. They are out. Buggers. The cheese was hiding. I wasn't embarrassed because it took two staff people to find it.

On the up side, they had a frozen pie I like and a tin of toffee I like - both of which are holiday items and the store across from the gym has been out of them since early January. So. Score.

On the way home, I remembered to look at my odometer. 19933 miles. I'm waiting on the big 20 oh oh oh. If I don't go anywhere special, we're looking at next Monday or Tuesday. The car is 6.5 years old.

I got the car gassed up, too. I had not focused on how high the price of gas had gotten... again. It's not that big a deal for me because I rarely buy more than 5 or 6 gallons a month. But I was surprised.

Guess I'll get up now and go make some blue cheese dressing.
