Check Engine... go away!

So I parked at the service desk this morning and handed over my keys. Apparently, when they started the engine the check engine light came on. It had not been on when I drove it in. They looked and looked and the computers kept giving them mixed signals. They did the rest of the work on the car and added in new brake pads and spark plugs and sent me on my way. My guy suggested I watch the warning light and, if the check engine light comes on again, don't panic. But, watch it. Turn off the car and let it sit and then try again. Keep an eye on it but if the car feels like it's running fine and idling fine, don't worry. Track it for a week or so and then let him know. I was really glad to get out of there but, honestly, it was the best experience I've ever had with them. Go figure.

I stopped at Grocery Outlet and, sure enough, when I came out and turned on the car, the check engine light came on and would not go off. But it runs fine, it idles fine and it's clean clean clean inside and out.

And I'm out $850 which is less than the $1,200 I was expecting so ... yeah?

I'm installing the beta of the new version of android on my phone right now. In the past few years, I've sold my old phone and gotten new hardware in the Fall and installed the beta of that year's software release in the spring. It's like getting a new phone twice a year.

My brother's all healed up and out and about which is, of course, fabulous and a relief.

I'm going to spend some time playing with the beta on my phone and then get on the ice machine cleaning program. I found instructions and they aren't simple or quick. And they involve a lot of white vinegar. So that's what I got a Grocery Outlet.
