Another Day

Monday, November 11, 2013

Time to start again, I'm going to attempt the 2 mile video again, I'm sure I can do it, and will after I get done with this.

I have a bit of a headache this morning, not sure why, maybe because I slept wrong, or it could be sinuses, it's raining out and just cold. Think I may turn on the heater.

Everything on my blood tests came back normal, my A1C was 6.5 which they said was great, so I"m happy, to me that's a bit high, but they didn't think so, but then what do I know, I've only had diabetes for 31+ years and they're the doctors. *LOL*

Anyway, I hope you all have a FANTASTIC day, and an even better tomorrow! emoticon

2 Miles

Sunday, November 10, 2013

I actually did a 2 mile exercise today for the first time, bet I'll be sore tomorrow, but I did it, that's what's important. I couldn't believe it. I didn't think I'd ever be able to do that, I'm going to attempt it tomorrow and see how I do, but at least I did it today. YEAH!

I should start a list of things I want to accomplish, and try to do them throughout the year...maybe sometime. *LOL*

Anyway, I'm feeling better about the blazer (instead of saying Equinox, my husband and I decided we'd call it a Blazer, it's shorter and neither of us wanted to keep saying Equinox *LOL*). Our son showed me how to add more stations to it and save them....our son...geez... at least I learned. Then he showed me how to add more "pages" to add even more stations. I feel like a real dunce now. *LMAO*

Well, I'm heading out with our son for supper, my hubby is up north hunting, so it's just he and I at home until later in the week. Have a great week ahead, and hope you all had a wonderful weekend! emoticon

Found cd...yeah!!

Saturday, November 09, 2013

Heading over to get my cd from the old van and to let them tell me, once more, how to figure out the radio...think this is going to happen quite a bit. It's so confusing. OH well, by the time we sell it I'm sure I'll learn mostly everything.

Our daughter came over last night and showed me how to put down the head rest..I think she just pushed a button and pushed it down. I mean I could have done that, had I found the dang button. The van you just pushed it down but NOOOOOOOOOooOOOOO this had to have a button you pushed in. *L*

Oh well, I'm off, but then again, I've always been off...have a great day everyone and an even better weekend...and don't forget that smile.

    I am loving this...I'm sorry, I understand you don't. However...your descriptions of adjusting to the unloved vehicle are just delightful!! You have such wit and write so well. I feel your pain in that it's not your choice of a DD talked me into my current Taurus and I just feel like it's something that pleased them...but I'd rather have a little car to save gas. I'm just not into what's popular. Keep playing with time you will get that 'oh well' reaction and enjoy the luxuries on it. I think that's why I bought the Black choice, no input from anyone else. Whatever..just keep sparkin'!! YOU are the important thing!!!

The new vehicle..and adapting.

Friday, November 08, 2013

Ok, got the equinox done, some before and after pictures, plus a few pictures of our van, which I really miss. It was so much higher up, I loved being able to see over I can't AAARRRRGGGGHHHH...oh well...take a deep breath. I'm going to have to get used to it, and figuring out everything.

This morning I could NOT figure out how to add another channel, so while I was trying to do that, I hit a button and ended up somewhere that I couldn't get out of, in the meantime I had X...something sirius..which was a non-channel, no music, nothing...and couldn't get out of it. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I wanted my van back so bad!!

I finally did something got out of it, pulled over and took out the book....and became more lost than ever. It told me to hit "favorites" which I did, then another thing...which wasn't even listed......I wanted to cry!! I am so lost with this thing..not only that, but I can't even move my headrest down!!!

*Deep breath* the pictures...I so miss my van, it was so pretty, well...according to me, anyway.

This is..was our van

Equinox before pinstriping:

Because there was no pinstriping on the front and back, I just put those on the "before" part, this is what the pinstriping looks like, after it was done:

I do like it better with the pinstriping, but man, it's going to take me a looooong time to figure all all the bells and whistles this thing has on it. It's not got all the room the van had, and the things I took out of the van...I will in no way have room for it in this vehicle, but...I'll adjust. *L* it has pink..yes I said it...PINK stitching on the inside (though my husband insists it's red, it's's PINK) and I love that. *LOL* it'll mean he's driving it less, sort of like the van. It was MY vehicle. I guess it'll cut down on me driving the car, which I really don't like driving, it's even smaller than the Equinox, so I'll survive.

Well that's it for today, I hope you all have a great one, and an even better weekend.

    Nice van. I'm sure it will be a really wonderful blessing once you figure it all out.

Such is life.

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Today is the day we go get the Equinox...I'm not sure I really want to get rid of the van. I love that vehicle, I mean to go from a van that has such space between the seats in front to feeling like I'm sitting on top of the person next to me.....I know it sounds stupid but I've been nearly in tears thinking about it.

I can get into this van and set my purse on the floor between the seats or packages, and stretch my arms out without hitting anyone next to me in the seat there. I can look back and there is just soooo much room. I'll be getting into this other vehicle and there is just no room at all. I'll have to put my purse in the backseat or if no ones in the other seat, I'll have to set it there, or on the floor on the other side, it'll just feel so closed in. And as I've mentioned's white. *shudders*. I'm sorry, I just hate white vehicles, though I am getting pinstriping on it, it's still going to be white.

I love my dark teal and silver van with the gold/silver swirled pinstriping on's just gorgeous and all the room...and cloth seats...this one has leather seats, another thing I don't like. Mainly because if we have our daughter's dog, a golden retriever, I'm so afraid his claws will go through the seats.

And that's another thing, he won't be able to come between the seats and sit on the front seat like he can in the van....

This is just depressing to me..I hate that GM no longer makes Astrovans...I love my astrovan so much...I will never get used to having this thing, ever..and we probably won't be getting another vehicle now for another 10 years or so, like with this van.

Oh well....such is life.

Have a nice day, everyone, and remember to smile! emoticon

    I'm sorry ...I've been there and it's so frustrating. Maybe you'll get used to it and feel more comfortable in awhile. Keep Sparkin'!!
