Bad Luck, Good Luck, Bad Luck

Bad Luck:

Finishing one skein in your baby blanket and knowing right away you won't have enough with the skeins remaining.

Good Luck:

Going to Michael's after SnB and finding the exact colourway and dye lot I needed, despite the fact I bought the original skeins 2 months ago.

Bad Luck:

My car's 'door ajar' light won't turn off. We've opened and closed every door and window multiple times. My FIL found a nut missing for the hatchback window and temporarily fixed that, but the light still won't turn off. The dealership we go to isn't the closest one (because the closest one earned my enmity with the fuel pump fiasco - charged me $500 for something that didn't need to be fixed, then couldn't 'find' my problem (aka dumb woman doesn't know what she is talking about), and kept on pushing me to buy a new car rather than have the problem fixed) - anyway, it is a bit of a drive to the dealership. We drive out there convoy-style, Andrew and Willow leading and me following, knowing the garage will be closed, but we can drop the keys/explanation in a drop box and leave the car there. We arrive, and there is a gate across the driveway - the whole dealership is closed! At 3pm on a Sunday afternoon! It blew my mind - all these car industry troubles, when are people supposed to come to a dealership to buy cars - between 9 - 5 Monday through Friday?!?! In any case, we turned around and headed right back home. My FIL and I will have to try and find sometime during the week to drop off the car.

Okay, more good luck, please...

Uhg! Don't take it to the dealership for that!!! My "Low Tire" light is always on in my car (even if the tires are all up to the right pressure). What I did was grabbed my manual and there are instructions in there on how to reset the "idiot lights" that may come on in the dash. It involves the fuse box and pressing buttons in there while the key is in various positions in the ignition.

I can imagine it would be annoying to drive around with that constantly on so I hope you can fix it!

Hope you get some Good Luck today!

At least your car still starts when that light is on...I heard that will be one of the safety features of the 'newer and better' cars....
