Car, water, open house
The window for my car was FINALLY put in today. It was supposed to be done on Monday but it didn’t arrive. Same thing on Tuesday. Wednesday it was finally there so I sat in the waiting room for an hour before the guy discovered that the wrong window came in. Argh! Today it’s done, though. And it was fairly cheap so I can’t complain too much. It was just a pain in the ass trying to make left turns with the passenger window all saran wrapped.
I think I found a good stereo to put in the dash today. It’s a factory stereo from a 1999 Ford Explorer and it seems to fit in the dash okay. It was only $7.00 at Goodwill. Problem is that nobody sells the wire connectors I need to wire it into my dash. Couldn’t find anything on Google or Ebay. Maybe I could try a junkyard. I’m determined to have a crappy and/or factory stereo from now on so there won’t be as much of a reason to bash in my car window. Wish I could just drive to Illinois and get my original factory stereo out of storage.
Today I noticed a big red scratch on the back side of my car. The kind of scratch you get when a driver scrapes against your car because they don’t know how to pull out of a parking space. And I really don’t care but ARGH! Cars are just more trouble than they’re worth.
I lost 5 pounds this month on the Get Off Your Fat Lazy Ass Diet. I bought a scale about a month ago and noticed that I’m just a few marks below Big Fasto – about 40 pounds overweight. So I’m tracking daily calories and I’m jogging and/or walking about an hour a night. I couldn’t run more than a block at first. Now I can do 5 or 6 easily.
And I’ve never paid attention to calories before. I signed up for a website that tracks them all for you, along with tracking exercise and water consumption. I never realized how many calories soda had in it. I’m down to about a Pepsi a week instead of my usual 1 Pepsi a day. I’m trying to completely quit Pepsi but every once in awhile I feel like I’ll die if I don’t get a Pepsi. I’m drinking no less than 60 ounces of water per day. Apparently water is good for you. The way they talk about it, I can’t believe I’m not dead yet. I rarely ever drank water.
Tonight was open house at the kids school. It was boring and pointless. I registered for college a week or so ago. Had orientation on Monday and went and bought my books today. I’m taking just English 3 days a week and class starts this Monday. I’m hoping to move up to 2 classes a week next semester. I’ve been putting off this college thing for the past 15 years or so.
Oh, and Jammie and I broke up.
