Kick in the Baggier Pants

Friday, May 17, 2013

This is by no means a positive blog. But it is. I mean, that it is not full of unicorns eating snowcones and pooping rainbows, but it's flipping a switch.

Not that I won't regress because I'm fickle as all get out, but I am trying to latch onto "future" things, not past.

So for some random good things:

Offers are coming in on mother's house. That will be less stress but a bit of sadness. We will try to focus on making vintage and traditional sleek meld into one household. (God help us, HGTV we need you!)

My pants, even after a week of wallowing and lack of exercise due to injury are baggy. The pants that were given to me that my mother hemmed will probably be on duty for another month.

My child's face when he finally got his pintail long board that he had saved money for. That was nice. I hope the experience leads to stronger ankles (which he desparately needs due to overpronation) rather than broken bones (we've already had two.)

I schooled a male car salesman. Why do they think that women know NOTHING? Won't be shopping there and I told him so. Told the manager too. If your salesman thinks he can get away with that, what is your service dept going to do to me? Nothing... Cause I ain't shopping there.

Oh...yeah, I climbed a mountain!! HA!

The mountain slapped me back but I'm still here.

Through all the negative crap I've had shoved in my face in the last two weeks I've realized:

* I still have people who love me.
* I still have my sense of humor.
* I have my faith, which shockingly enough to me, is actually working. I was a skeptic. Call me Scully.

I have no idea what I want to do with all this free time but whatever it is, it will be what I want to do. That's a pretty nice thought to start my Friday Weekend.

I hope you are all having a fabulous end to your week and want to thank anyone and everyone who commented lately for your patience and support. You guys are what makes Spark work.

    I don't know anything about cars, but I do know the probability of 4 tail lights being out in a group of 4 women in a Jiffy Lube waiting area is highly, highly unlikely. And I let the techs know that.

    Get a smile hearing how you 'schooled' the car salesman! Way to go! Good luck, car shopping SUCKS! been there, done that! (eventually found a low mileage honda on craigslist and spent a $100 to have it checked by a mechanic was less stress than dealerships.. but I did use them to test drive cars to figure out what I wanted to look for:)

    And I don't think that mountain slapped you back.. you showed it who was boss, and you got to 'feel' your accomplishment for most of the week ;)
    Sore muscles suck, but they are a great reminder of how hard we have worked!
    Happy WEEKEND!
