Two Cars

Monday, January 07, 2013

OK. I have an appointment to take my regular car to the repair shop for a likely compression issue on Tuesday night. That car is parked until we take it to the repair shop.

Tonight, the van (the extra vehicle) had something happen to the rear end area (wheel/brakes/differential, etc) and I had to have it towed to the repair shop.

We are down to one working car at home. I am grateful for that! However, it is worrisome!

I do mean that. I am grateful that we have another car to use. It does mean that one member of the family will have to stay home for a day or two without a car. But that is minor. It could mean no transportation to work.

And that is not the case.

Keep smiling!! All will be well!

    If my one car was down, I'm stranded.

What a wonderful day you have planned. I hope you enjoy every second of that.

Anna Marie....how cool is that?
Wonderful name indeed.
Today is a good day to regroup.
I wish you well in 2013

400 days

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Finally!!

I logged in 400 visits to Curves this morning. I had that scheduled for November, but, . . .

Anyway, I am pleased with that accomplishment.

It seems, however, like I only work, exercise, pay bills, work, exercise, pay bills these days.

I think I will go to an antique store and walk around. A small treat.

Hmmm.

I had better do it now or I will not go out at all! I will see how many steps I can get in while out and about at the antique store.

Free entertainment!

Fireplace ablaze

Friday, January 04, 2013

I am working from home today. I have a permanent custody final hearing next Tuesday, and I need to put together my trial binder. There will be five attorneys, including me, at the trial. I only have one witness other than the defendants. All in all, it is a pretty straightforward case.

However, it pays to be prepared!!

So, in light of that habit, I also planned my meals for next week. Lunch, I mean. Usually it is leftovers. However, some things serve better as leftovers than others. So, I am planning backward from lunch to the prior evening's dinner. Just to change things up a bit.

Oh, and I have the gas fireplace on. It adds a sense of comfort and abundance to my office/family room.

One step at a time!

    Sounds like a great plan.
We had a gas fireplace when I was growing up.

Thirsty Thursday

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I simply could not, even though I was thirsty, drink that first cup of water this morning. I did NOT want that bland taste!!

So, I had my cereal with milk and waited until I got into my car to drive to work before I had my first taste of water this morning. It was good! Of course, that was because it was nearly frozen. I generally pack four water bottles in the car before going to bed at night. I find that is a good practice.

And, since it was 2 degrees here this morning, my water was nice and cold. I think it is silly that water tastes better (to me) when it is cold. But that is the case. So.

Tomorrow morning, I will have my glass of water all ready to go and sitting on my desk, as usual. However, I made a small note for myself. It reads: PUT ICE IN THIS!

I will see if that helps me tomorrow morning!!

One step at a time!

    I know it's so hard to get all the water in.....I personally just don't like having to run to the bathroom all the time. But I drink as the water is so good for hydrating us...we know it. Good for you to make the plan to get yours in.
Have a terrific day.

    Try adding a couple drops of lemon or lime. Another idea is put a slice of cucumber in the water.
