I see that You are having probs with a Car. I'm not sure how mechanically Inclined You are but, be sure Your Rotors cannot be turned down. If there is
enough Material, They can turn those on a lathe, to clean them up. That is a Heck of a LOT Cheaper, then full replacements!
They could not be turned down. One was indeed warped, and the other was much too worn down. New rotors went on this morning, along with new brakes.
The mechanic had to manhandle one of the calipers and ended up more or less breaking it to get it off, he thinks the last time the brakes were worked
on, someone over-torqued putting it back on and it stripped the bolt, and seized it in place. When every tool a mechanic has can't get something
loose, you dun did it wrong
On the bright side, he felt bad he had to go that route and that it took quite a bit of extra time to get it off in
the first place, so he put brand new calipers on the back end for free

Shutting off the internet was a good idea. Lol
Maybe they could make a little chart to mark off who cleaned the hutch last.
Oh, we've tried it. They try to pawn assigned chores off too much, so we dangled money at them and for joint jobs like the hutch, and tell 'em either
they get to split it, or they get the whole amount for a solo job. We figure either splitting $2 for the hutch once a week or not splitting it is
incentive enough. That usually works unless they're both feeling particularly lazy XD
Not all chores are paid, just the less pleasant ones like litter box & hutch cleaning. And garbage can scrubbing (outdoor one, not the kitchen one,
that never gets grimy) That sucker out there can REEK, I'm not doing it. That's what kids are for X"D
I finally finished the blanket. I mismeasured it and it's not quite big enough for the bed, but it is plenty big enough for a single person on the
couch (maybe two people cuddling
) or to use on the bed to keep one person warmer. I'm fine with that, I don't need to be much warmer in the winter
than I do get. It's hubby that gets too cold under 2 down comforters & a cotton one and whines about it, lol.
I've been hesitant to put it in the wash, it's been done for several days now. I was a little paranoid that if I did, a stitch would break or a skein
join spot would come undone (I screwed up and knotted a couple of early joins instead of "invisible joining" new skeins in as a stitch, oops. Caught
myself early on, though) It held up fine on a delicate wash, and seems to be holding up fine on a low heat dry cycle.
I have just shy of 4 skeins of yarn left, so I'm making myself a shawl out of it. This
looked simple enough, and I like the spiderweb-like look of it. It's still fairly tedious, this is fingering weight yarn (so, really thin
yarn) I'm kind of surprised at how far I've come on crochet speed with it, though!
