Catching Up Again

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Tuesday was a challenging day. I got my chores done early and left to go to town to do errands and shopping. At the first place I went to, the post office, my car key bent sideways in the door lock as I was leaving and the car would not start after I tried to bend it back. I had to go back into the post office and get my friend, who is postmaster there, to find a pair of pliers and hammer and we straightened the key out. Her husband has pneumonia and she is sick with a cold. Later I realized that somewhere I had lost part of my keys. Not sure what part as I don't know what is lost. All the main keys are there. I went to the courthouse to pay our taxes. They no longer allow you to bring in your purse so you have to lock it in your trunk. It's a shame that we have to lose privileges because of a few nuts. I saw a young deer in the yard when I got home. I put some strawberries out and and a female turtle came and ate them. Hubby and I went for a walk in the evening.

Wednesday I was pretty miserable from worrying about our sparkfriend. I want to thank everyone for their prayers. I'm sure they will help her. I had no appetite all day at at bedtime had to eat something to get my calories up as they were below 1000.

It was 57 degrees this morning. It sounds cold but it was nice and stayed nice all day. My son cleaned his part of the bathroom today and I did one load of laundry because tomorrow is cage cleaning day. Ugh. At least we will have less to do. I wanted to go for a walk with hubby after work but Rico Suave wanted attention when hubby got home. He's pretty cute and knows how to get what he wants.

    I agree about the security at the courthouse now. The only place that they could put ours borders on making it a fire hazard if there are people needing to get out.

    Plus there is the expense of having a couple people just sitting there because there just aren't that many people going to the courthouse.

    Glad you got your key fixed and your bills paid. It feels good to get that done. Re; change in our freedoms because of nuts, I agree. Ticks me off. I remember the stupid Unibomber and how the US Post Office changed weight limits for packages mailed from home. I lived in AK, was sick, paranoid to drive in snow, and did home-based sales. I needed to drive to the PO to mail my catalogs and I wanted to again, spit on the Uni-dude. Loser. What a PITA. lol Didn't he know I was sick? Oh. He was, too. :P

    We've had lower temps in the morning, too; it's such a relief. :)

    I love your blogs.

    I'm sure you're welcoming the 57 after the summer you've been through.

    No fun with the key, especially having to lock your purse in the trunk of you car. Always wondered if there were people out there that knew those purses were in those trunks and good have a hey day with ripping people off. However, I'm sure there is surveillance in the parking area!

    I am so excited about our cooler weather too! However today it is nice and breezy but in the house it would be extremely hot and humid so had to turn my air back on. YUCK!!! I love having my windows open and the fresh air coming in.

    Interesting fact about no purses in the courthouse.
    In my area you could smuggle in a grocery bag with a ticking clock and no one would look at you twice.

    We are finally having cooler weather but its the peak of hurricane season so it makes me a lil nervous (insurance agent - hurricaenes r the worse to work after!).. hope you are able to eat better today, you need to keep yourself healthy too!

    When's your weigh-in? Seems like you're gonna see some serious weight loss!

    Don't get Bill going about our liberties! He'd say it isn't the doing of a few crazies, but the determination of the powers-that-be to strip us gradually of more and more of our freedoms. I'm starting to believe him, too.

    Of course we all also know that Morticia is a pistol-packin' mama and a danger to society, because of whom they created the purse ruling. emoticon

    It is cooler here too and had me reaching for the quilt last night.

    Do keep us posted about your friend. How very sad.

    Hang in there and have a Fab Friday.

    Sounds like the fall weather is creeping in - we still have at least another month or 6 weeks before we get some relief from Fl summer! At least it's cool inside most places! I try not to let it keep me from my Sat morning walks with my daughter - we just sweat and drink our way through 6 miles or so!

    Have you stopped eating completely?

    I used to like hot weather but now that I'm more active, that 57 degrees sounds pretty good. It hasn't been that cool yet where I live but it's coming!

    Still praying for our friend and will write her every day.

    You have some amazing weather. It's hard to walk a lot when the sun just takes everything out of you. Yesterday I decided to walk to the shopping mall. The walk going there was pleasant. However, when I returned at 11;00 in the morning it was already sizzling out and I returned home with a minor case of sun stroke. Yes, I had a hat and sun glasses on. Anyways, I did 16,000 plus steps. No woohoo for me, it was not worth it. I will tryt again when the weather permits me. emoticon deb
