Duct Cleaning with F.H. Furr

The last duct cleaning was done when we first moved into our house, which was 10 years ago. Today, we have another duct cleaning service by F.H. Furr. Its inspector recommended the service and we figured we might as well do it before the new baby come out.

Service cost: $455

Toyota Sienna 2011: 120,000 Miles

I just created a category called Maintenance to keep track of all the maintenances. I keep lose track of all my receipts and I don’t remember what I have done. So this blog will keep everything in one place.

Our Toyota Sienna 2011 is reaching 120,000 miles and here are what we have done:

  • Replaced 4 Michelin Premier tires: $800
  • Replaced rear break pads: $155 ($60 part & $95 labor)
  • Tuned up: $400 ($85 Spark plugs, $15 air filter, $15 cabin air filter first time fit)

Still need to replace shocks. These auto mechanics are milking everything they can.

Life is Full of Maintenance

I was at the dental office today to get my teeth maintenance. While the dentist worked on my nasty teeth, I realize that everything in life that you own needs a maintenance.

Your damn house needs a maintenance. If you are suck at housework like me, you will have to pay big bucks for all the maintenance. From the water pipes to the toilet, maintenance costs a fortune. Our HVAC is leaking water. There goes more maintenance.

I took our older mini-van to the dealer for an oil change on Monday, the technician recommended several maintenances that would cost almost two grants. Now I have to shop around to get lower price for a maintenance.

At work, I have to keep a maintenance of our CMS and server. Everything needs to be kept today to make sure that our sites won’t get hack. A huge chunk of my time is to maintain the content of our websites.

Relationships required maintenance as well. Our marriage will break if not well maintained. Our interactions with the people around us will lose if we do not keep in touch. Life is so full of maintenance. How do we get out of it?

I am contemplating on deactivating all my social media so that I don’t have to maintain those interactions anymore. In the near future, I will try to get rid of all the cars so that I don’t have to maintain them anymore. Once the kids all grown, I’ll buy a smaller townhouse so that I won’t need to maintaining the landscaping. The less dependent on all of these things will free me up from all the maintenance.
