Facing reality?

My car has its own little attitude.

Lately, I don't know if it's trying to tell me it has a mind of its own; or if it simply being indecisive.

Over the past week, it seems that my car can't decide WHICH headlight it wants to actually utilize for those dusky hours.  One day, the left headlight is the only one that is shining.   The next day, the right headlight will decide to work while the left one doesn't.  Honestly, I have no clue if there is a "short" somewhere?  the bulbs aren't properly installed?  Wiring problems?  I have no clue.  I do know that since we've had it (9 years now!), the lights have always been problematic. 

So tonight....4:45....dusk literally on the horizons;  NEITHER light decides to work.  Therefore, the grocery shopping spree was postponed so I could make it home while at least a little dusk light remained.  Three miles from home, the left light flickered on after hitting a little bump.

So yeah...time to bite the bullet and realize:  It's time to CAR SHOP!

Bummer. Honda does have a recall on their headlights right now. I got a notice for my 2003 civic. Just a heads up in case you have that car - they should fix it free.
