Why couldn't I have been born before cars were invented?

I pretty much detest cars. Whether it be shopping for them, insuring them, fixing them when they break down, or even driving them around, I am not the biggest fan of all the trouble they can and have been in my life. Friday I took the van for its smog test. It didn't pass. Crikey, and it is due to be registered, tomorrow. So I took it in to my faithful mechanic. We are spending way too much time together, much to my dismay. Here is a picture of me shortly after my mechanic called to tell me how much it would cost to fix the van so that it would pass the smog. Honestly I could hardly breathe for about 20 minutes. But now the van has passed the smog test, and I can register it online. That will be so much preferable to waiting in line at the DMV for hours. Although imagine the entertaining faces, I will not get to make. So once again all is well that ends well.

I took our Ford Ranger pickup in for the annual smog/safety inspection this morning. We passed the smog, happily enough, but not the safety. A multi-function switch needed to be replaced and there was a screw in one of the tires. So... I guess I'll have a little more running around to do before I can check that little item off my list.

Cars are a pain. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.
