The electric department worked on the lines and replaced some wires, they said. I thought maybe that would help and that the electricity wouldn't go off as often, but I think it's doing it more often. Suicidal squirrels are the cause of many outages and weather does others.
The lights inside my car won't go off. I slammed all the doors and jiggled with the switch in the doors, but nothing made them go off. So I removed the cover of the dome light which wasn't easy and took out the bulb in there which I ruined since it was halogen. Since I'd messed up that one, I decided not to take out the bulbs from the lights at the bottom of the doors and have absolutely no idea how to disconnect those lights. I guess I could have looked it up. Oh well. I doubt that was in the manual.
The car gave me a false sense of security by starting every time I drove it, so I had the delusional idea that I was charging the battery and would have time to get someone to fix the problem. That would have worked if I hadn't forgotten about the whole thing today. When I went out to go somewhere, the thought flitted through my mind that I hoped the car would start. No. It didn't. The lights had made the battery run down. Unfortunately, the mechanic I usually go to, didn't check his answering machine and won't be back in there until Monday.
I unhooked the battery cables so it might not drain the last bit of power from the battery since it will sit there until Monday. You don't have to say it; I've already berated myself about this for quite a while now. I also got my hands really dirty just opening the hood of the car and then even dirtier when I had to touch the terminals.
I stay too tired most of the time, and it's affecting my mind. Yeah, that's it.
