The Universe cuts me a break

Over the weekend, I noticed that the engine light was off. Hunch is that it actually had been since Tuesday's diagnostic visit, and I just didn't notice till then. Whichever, I figured it as long as it was off, even if it would probably fail the emissions test, it was worth giving it a shot.

Tuesday night, I pulled into the South Elgin testing station at 6:02. They closed at 6:00. (State employees. You better believe they close when they say they will.)

So last night, I sucked it up and went the 40 minutes in the wrong direction to the Downers Grove station. To my abject surprise, it passed.

Halfway home, the light came back on. *whew*

Still car shopping, becuase it was on the menu for early next year anyway. But the removal of the September deadline is a very nice thing indeed. :-)

Huzzah!

cheekygal and deannie have hybrids they both very much like; they might be good folks to check with on their experiences.

destiny's darling!

If so, it's got a funny way of showing it. *wry g* After the various ups and downs of last week, what I didn't post about was the surprise $1K jump in our property taxes that swam up from the depths of the Cook County code to bite us in Tuesday's Mail. :-P

But, definitely glad to take what I can get!

Ooh, that sucks.

It surprises me - usually you've got excellent luck, and things just find a way of working out for you. I'm sure there'll be an equally surprising good thing that'll come along to cancel out the tax issue. :)

I have faith in your luck. :)

We can hope. If not, well, we'll live.

I have faith in your luck. :)

So do I, generally. Which I think is most of the reason I have it. ;-)
