Alas, Alack and a Heart Attack

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

OK, you know those people who buy treadmills and then use them for an alternate closet? I've become one. Since I'm now the proud leassor of a walk in closet and I don't have enough hangers...So rather than let my carefully de-wrinkled clothes re-wrinkle and have to (say it isn't so!) IRON them, well, the treadmill's right there, right? UNPARDONABLE! And I have yet to make use of my apt.'s very decent fitness center. It's been almost 3 weeks, for goodness sake.

But I have excuses, oh yes I do! My semi-perfect little car just got smashed up AFTER I just put a TON of money into it to pass our new state's inspection requirements...I was kinda counting on it as my car as soon as we could afford to be a 2 car family, and of course there's the sentimental value that all things have once they're mine long enough. My carefully choreographed life is not EVER prepared for actual life. New home is not as pedestrian friendly as old home, so to prep a 2 year old for a 3 mile walk for one tiny errand is definitely a task in and of itself. And kinda sounds like math, which is not my friend. Um, anyway...too cheap to take a bus when I can physically walk it if I try, so sue me! (No, don't. I won't pay...)

And now, to whine: I want my internet time back! I miss being an SP junkie!

    Hey, Eliza - Very sorry to hear about your car. I've got a different feel about my cars. They're just tools to me. So when they get smashed up, I don't really care, as long as I can get them fixed. Funnily enough, I never smash my cars up myself. It's usually my sister or some other family member who does. Anywho, I hope you can get your car fixed (not totalled, is it?) and I hope you get some more hangers, so you can't use that as an excuse not to actually USE your treadmill!!

    Sorry about the car :-( I get very attached to my modes of transporation and act like someone in my family was injured when they are in the shop. Hope you get you're internet time back too. Miss ya :-)

    Well, hey. At least if you're walking everywhere, it's not so bad that you haven't been hitting the gym, right??!?!?!

    But you're right. BAD GIRL! Clothes don't go on treadmills! :) hahahaha

    You crack me up. Thanks for the lovely comments on my page. Stick to it! :D
