The order of things

I have two car repairs to do today: 1) Change an exhaust manifold gasket on the BMW and 2) Change the oil on the Yukon.

If I do the gasket first, I will probably run into problems: Rusty bolts, inaccessible nuts & etc. If it turns into a nightmare, the truck probably won't get done. If I do the truck first I will probably feel like I already accomplished something today and either blow-off the BMW work or quit at the first sign of trouble.

I will do the truck first.

Update: After Sunday brunch, we decided to take the kids to WALL-E (which was great!) and by the time we got home it was after 3:00 PM. I did the oil for the truck, which is pretty easy because it sits so high I don't have to jack it up. The BMW will have to wait.
