Ever have a feeling of accomplishment, no matter how slight?

I took my car to get a set of tires today. I also requested a brake inspection. They told me my brakes were good, but recommended a wheel alignment while they were putting on the tires. The price was reasonable, about what I expected to pay (actually less, because the alignment cost less than a brake job would have), and I was out of the shop in a little over an hour. The car drove well on the way home, and I felt a little safer with the new rubber on the road.

Life's great, at least today.
