Thank you to MOM for providing an oil change checklist and a prize for myself and one of you.
Car maintenance has never really been my “thing”. I mean, my Dad made sure I knew a few of the basics: I learned how to change a tire, how to check the oil and coolant levels in the car, things like that. But the tire thing I’ve never done and the fluid levels I haven’t checked on my own in years.
My Dad was good about always reminding me to go get my oil changed. Apparently the sticker in the corner of my windshield wasn’t quite enough. I’d go and drop off the car, they’d call, and I’d go pick it up. What the man behind the curtain did, I had no idea. And now my husband reminds me, though his reminder really only prompts me to make an oil change appointment, and then he takes the car for me. So I still didn’t really know much about it.
