Day 29 of 30days Thanksgiving challenge: Grateful my friend Tommy is a good & honest mechanic. Grateful that he's willing to help out. Grateful that he's putting so much time & effort into getting the lowest priced parts and fixing the van as fast as he can. Seems every time we turn around something else needs to be fixed. That's the joy of an older vehicle. It's a 1995 Ford Windstar Van.... but he seems to think that I'll have it back by tomorrow night or Saturday morning. It needs rear brakes too, he told me... but I can't afford that right now. We'll just have to make do. I'm grateful that I'm not having to use a high priced shop or dealership because I would have had to junk the vehicle.
Today I have been uptight about the whole money thing... but at least I am getting things done. I have had my crochet hook smoking... making Christmas presents since I now know that my funds are non-existant. I am so blessed to even be able to make things. I know that my friends will be grateful & I feel like more of me is going into them anyway. I've watched some fun movies. FUnny how when you are home alone you can watch all sorts of stuff. I never get to go to the movies and rarely rent them, so I am catching up on things that I had wanted to see but never got a chance too. I should think of this as a vacation instead of being stressed over it.
My food is low again today. My exercise is low too but they balance out. I am grateful that I am staying on target and that I have not fallen into old habits of compulsive overeating.
Bright blessings to you all.
