Old Blue Wheel Woes

This week I have had wheel woes. A couple weeks ago I hit a pothole pretty hard and I have been keeping an eye on the tire.

I dropped my car off this morning and got a ride home to make plans for the afternoon.

So, since the old tire was already off all I can do is wait. Fortunately the new wheel will be delivered in the morning.

zuma, computer game, wasting timeSince most of my planned afternoon errands needed my car, I lost motivation and started playing a game on my computer. Zuma is addictive 🙂

I did get some reading done. I finished two books that I had started earlier in the week and read parts of three or four others.

I also got in a long walk this evening. I have made it to the next destination on my virtual hike and will write about it soon.
