As a mom, I wear many hats in my family and run an endless amount of errands every day. What with grocery shopping and the frequent trips to the discount stores, taking Riley to dance class, going to the post office, library, doctor's office, etc., at times I seem to practically live in my car! Being able to rely on your vehicle is key to running a successful household.
Recently, my husband and I had to share one car for over a week while our other one was at the mechanic's shop. I didn't think we were going to make it! I felt just like a teenager again, waiting anxiously for Dad to come home so I could have his wheels. Grocery shopping fell way behind and Riley even had to miss a couple of dance classes due to the fact that Michael needed the car for work.
Car maintenance of any kind is generally a huge headache and seems to take forever. Even a simple oil change is something you go out of your way to avoid. Every time I take the car in for an oil change, a state inspection or the like, I'm in there for what seems an eternity.
Thankfully, Pep Boys has found a way to make car maintenance quick and painless by implementing an electronic service center. Now, you can schedule a service appointment, print out your paperwork ahead of time for faster check-in and even track the progress of your service while you wait, either online or via text message.
Pep Boys has finally found a way to make car maintenance convenient, which means that I am much more likely to keep up with our vehicles' regular maintenance instead of putting it off until tomorrow. They're also giving you a chance to win a $250 gift card with their weekly e-serve giveaway. Just schedule a service appointment with Pep Boys and enter to win!

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
