After spending three months looking for excuses not to get my car inspected, I finally got it done on Monday. I really didn’t have much of a choice because my sticker was about to expire. I had to get one tire replaced but my car passed inspection. Yay! So, I finally got that taken care of and now I can’t even remember what caused me to wait until the last minute.
Having spent my Monday getting that taken care of, the rest of this week has been very blissful and very relaxing. To be honest, I made a decision to rest both last week and this week so that I would fully energized going into the last few months of 2022. I can’t wait for October!
