The wipers were easy to order because you just have to know what kind of car you have and put it into the search engine. They arrived by US Mail in 2 days.
My friend who knows a lot about automotive things tried her best to attach them but they weren’t the right size.
So she took my car to a nearby automotive store to get an exact replacement which wasn’t easy because the databases seem to have the wrong information.
I ended up sending EZWipers the following email:
None of the wipers were the same size as the original ones on my 2015 Nissan Versa Note. The shorter front wiper and the rear window wiper wouldn't fit at all. I had to go to a local store and buy new ones. Please refund my payment.
Their guarantee is: “If your wipers don’t fit we’ll give you a full refund. You don’t even have to send them back.”
I’m sorry they didn’t fit because the EZWipers service, prices, and products seem to be good.
Update: I received the following email from EZWipers:
Hi There, I’m sorry to hear that the wipers did not fit. I have refunded your money back to your credit card. Confirmation copied below. You can dispose of the ill-fitting wipers.
I’m planning to have a dinner party sometime in the next few months.
Wanting to serve something a little more chichi* than a rotisserie chicken, I remember in the long ago past having made a recipe called “Chicken Barbarossa.” The only thing I can recall is that it uses Galliano in the ingredients.
After searching the web for both “Chicken Barbarossa” in all its various spellings and chicken recipes with Galliano, I came up empty.
Then, as I was cleaning up the back bedroom, I found a blank recipe book, called Culinary Heritage Family Recipes Handed Down Yours and Mine, that my mother had given me.
The idea is that the wife’s side and the husband’s side both submit recipes that will all be in this one book.
I had only written a few recipes down because I usually just make things up in my head. Lo and behold, there was “Chicken Barbarossa” in the poultry section. The one ingredient I was sure about (Galliano), however, is actually Amaretto.
And I’m keeping the journal that she has available for download.
The first day I was supposed to create a “Vision” for my home. I want my home, The Glade, to be welcoming and ready for anything. That implies that it is uncluttered and clean. I’ll be able to find things easily because they will be in their place.
I was also asked to consider with whom I share my home. At this point in time only Charlie and I live in our home. He is a self-professed clutter-hound. He just mentioned something like that to me yesterday morning. I think he would like everything to be calm and organized so I’ll need to be helpful to him in that area.
The one thing I thing I took away from Session 1 is that my reality should match my vision. Which led right into Session 2: Get rid of 10 things.
Take away #2: Our clutter problem is not an organization problem it’s a we-have-too-much-stuff realization.
So here’s what I’m getting rid of:
Journal — I dropped it off to new owner on Tuesday night.
Among my belongings I found an unused journal that I’ll be gifting to my dear friend. She is a beautiful writer but has never tried keeping a journal. I think she’ll be surprised just how inspiring her writing is.
Finally, Charlie and I have set the date, May 7th, for a Book Swap. The inside of the invitation reads like this:
Is anyone else out there struggling with clutter including perfectly good BOOKS? Everyone has books at his/her home that he/she would hate to throw away but really doesn’t want anymore. In honor of the culmination of “Teacher Appreciation Week”, May 7, 2016, Charlie and Jo invite you to a book swap where you can bring your old books and walk away with some new reads. The books should be in good condition but can be of any genre including children’s books.
1. Each person should bring no more than 10 books that you didn’t want to throw away but are ready to part with.
2. On the day of the swap bring your books and pile them in front of the sign that closest fits the category of your book.
3. When everyone has deposited his/her books on the surface provided you can check out the selection.
4. You will be given a signal to grab as many books as you brought to a maximum of 10.
5. Unclaimed books are fair game for anyone who would like them.
6. All leftover books will be donated to The Book Thing of Baltimore where anyone can go and help himself to free books (description follows).
