Surprise Rich

Normally we take Rich's car whenever we go anywhere together, but Saturday night we took mine when we went to a party because his was out of gas. Since he didn't go out yesterday, he didn't have a chance to fill up, and I just knew that he would be late to work if he waited until this morning.

So yesterday I stole his car out of the garage when I went to volleyball, and got gas and cleaned it out while I waited for the pump to finish. I really would have liked to have been able to vacuum the interior and wipe down all the windows and dashboard, but unfortunately because it was so late in the evening and also because I was on the way to meeting some of my teammates for a drink, I didn't have time.

Truth be told, he wouldn't have noticed anyway. While Rich did see that I had gotten him gas, he didn't even realize that I had cleaned it out. So I just have to assume he wouldn't have noticed the next step either.

But I'm counting this as an accomplished goal even if he didn't really appreciate it. I may have missed my mark a little, but I still tried. And, if nothing else, he wasn't late for work.

Finished Goals: 12/101
Days Left:


  1. That was very sweet of you.

    I'm the same way. I put it off and put it off until I HAVE to get gas on the way to work, but because I never get up when the alarm goes off I end up being late because of it.

  2. Thanks!

    I have a tendency to do that too. Just the other day I wasn't even sure if I was going to make it to a gas station before I ran out of gas. Luckily, everything was ok, but I learned my lesson on that one. From now on, when my tank gets to the half mark, I'm stopping for gas.

  3. I may not have noticed right away, but I did appreciate it! I just don't notice much of anything in the morning.
