Sunshine today! It was glorious and I feel so much better. I actually checked the next 10 day forecast and - trumpets please - we are going to start getting warmer after today. 20 degrees expected tomorrow and a little nudge up each day until - more trumpets - 40 degrees by next Thursday, Feb 20. Oh my goodness. Just thinking about it puts a little skip in my step. This winter has worn me down like no other but I think we have finally crested and it will be a slow slide into spring.
Also today, DD has her evening class, I'm stepping away to an episode of Bob Newhart (again) and my DH phones. It is 6:30PM and he has been trying to get his car started since 5. Can I come and get him? Um, no I don't have a car remember. So I try my older daughter - she is closing at the pharmacy tonight and won't get out until 9PM. Yikes. So I call a nephew, who, for some reason, finds it funny that we are carless and his uncle is stranded out of town and wants to come home. I think it was the wine he had with dinner that was chuckling at me on the phone. Luckily DH called back at 6:45 and his car finally started and he was heading home. Then he said something about driving to work tomorrow and to make sure I had a car just in case. Seriously! He was planning on driving that car again? I wanted to go out car shopping last weekend (it has 280,000+ miles on it) but he is "confident I can get 5 more years out of it." Really? I don't think it has 5 more days left in it. So tomorrow he will work from home. Thursday and Friday I usually drive to school but he will drop me off and take my car and I can walk. Those are usually the hardest days for me to get my steps in but this week I will have the opportunity to walk home so it's a win-win for us (he gets car, I get steps). We will car shop this weekend instead. I wish someone was having a push-pull-drag sale nearby.
