I had a fairly nice holiday weekend. Friday night was nice. Hubby and I went driving around to see the historical area we live in but discovered that I needed to have my front brakes replaced a.s.a.p. We were driving around with the windows down and heard the squeeling and then the grinding noise that let us know. Evidently my Ford Focus is very sound proof because I had never heard the noise before. I had noticed that it was getting a little difficult to stop but I just figured it was getting close to needing them changed. Well hubby decided to not do it himself and ended up taking it somewhere to get it done on Saturday. What was surprising is that I only have 24,000 miles. I mentioned that at the shop and the guy said that the Ford Focus is making him rich! He said they are good little cars but are horrible on brakes, most cars don't need their brakes changed until around 40,000 miles.
Sunday we celebrated my FIL's birthday which was Monday. He is a very hard man to buy for. We bought him one of those massagers that you attach to your chair where you can adjust the speed and placement of the pulses. He really liked it, whew
Yesterday, we went to the zoo and I swear everybody else in the city of Houston had the same idea! After we got in the vicinity it took us an hour to find parking. Let me tell you, I was a pretty tense and frustrated driver
I'm working today and then I have tomorrow off. I think hubby and I are going to see About A Boy tomorrow.
Hope everyone is having a good day!
