WoooHooo It's Friday....

But then again everyday lately for me is Friday. The biggest thing I have to do today is make a trip to the grocery store for a few items. It's not even a big grocery shopping trip. I seriously need my truck looked at and Bob is calling the mechanic to see when we can get it over there. Twice now it has just shut off on me. Once while I was in mid turn and yesterday just while I was sitting at a light waiting for my turn to go. Weird. I'm not really trusting it enough to go to far right now. I'm really hoping it's not something major. The truck is a 1998 and now has 138,000 miles on it. When I bought it 5 and 1/2 years ago it had 56,000 on it. I have had that truck everywhere and have been through alot with it. Never having major problems with it. Once a few years ago the fuel pump went out and I had to replace that. The was the most costly thing so far that has been wrong so I feel pretty good about it. I'm seriously thinking it's time to trade it in. Guess now we wait and see what the mechanic says. I'd love to have my friend up in New York look at it simply because I trust him and know he'd tell me exactly what needs to be fixed on it. Bob trusts this mechanic he found so hopefully he does us right and is on the up and up about it. It's hard to find a good mechanic that you trust. Anyway, enough about that.

I talked to my Mom for about 1/2 an hour yesterday. She's doing well and that's good. I feel bad that she no longer has a car and now can't just get out and go somewhere when the walls start closing in on her, but it was time for her to stop driving. she even mentioned that she was thinking about it. I'm really glad that her new central heating and a/c unit seems to be working well. (the car helped pay for it) The Funeral home mailed her the death certificates for my Dad so she sent those out for Gloria and myself. She also recieved something from the cemetary letting her know where on the grounds my Dad's ashes were placed. It's good to know that she can call me anytime she wants or needs to. I think I'm going to charge up my calling card and mail it to her. It has 670 minutes on it when full. I love that it's rechargeable. Bob and I no longer need to use it. It sure did get it's full use between us these past 2 years.

It's obvious that I don't have much to talk about since I seem to be all over the place with my thoughts this morning. It's also apparent that I need a job to keep me busy. Once I know what's going on with the truck and have reliable transportation, I'll get back out there and look again. For now though, I'm content to have everyday seem like a Friday. I feel as though I deserve this. I have a little bit more to get organized now that I have one more shelf so I guess I'll get that done today too.

This journal is still something I'm going to continue to keep and write in, though my purpose for having it now has changed. I haven't had much to countdown lately so we'll have to think of something. I know we are trying to figure out what we are going to do about the upcoming holiday's so maybe there is a countdown in there somewhere. For now though it's time to go be domesticated and organize the house.
