Drive your own scooter

Shh, i don't to say this too loud, but I have had 3 goods days in a row. My L.L. is back to being a sweetheart. Kind and reasonable. Plus I am only working 10 instead of 13 hours. The rest of the week will be 8 hours. It really is amazing how much better it makes it us for both of us. So, nice surprise. I am proud of myself for asking what I wanted and negotiating my pay. Took me long enough, but I did it.

Another "atta boy" was that I called and canceled the MK party. I just decided that I wasn't going to be bullied into doing something I didn't want to do. I mean...I already spent 3 hours of a Saturday afternoon and more money on potions then I have in a year that afternoon. I think I handled it well. We are still friends.

Getting off earlier allows me a little life. Like I had a busy social schedule prior to October. I did have my son and his GF to dinner. It was nice. I fixed ribs in the crock pot. Got to give the people what they want. I had a little meat and lots of broccoli. Nice visit. We were talking about Greg Mortinssen. It's funny, I was just reading about Roxie attending a lecture of his and my kid is doing some kind of paper of school on it. Anyway. It was nice to visit.

I can't believe it's just 5 short weeks till the wedding. My kid told me I was looking skinny again. A friend said something this week as well. I am still just north of 200 lbs. So that made me feel good. I haven't been strict, but conscious of what I am putting in my mouth. I missed walking this morning. 20 degrees this morning. WTH?? I love me some weather. Probably won't go tomorrow either.

I had my back adjusted today. Holy HELL! It is more sore now then before. Before my butt and thighs just tingled. I am putting some heat on it and hoping to be good to go by morning. I am going to just take it easy cause of my back and my knee kind of bothered me after the 5 miler Saturday.

Hope everyone Else's week is as good as mine. Going to try to read a few blogs before I hit the sack. I am exhausted. I took L.L. food shopping on Senior Citizen Discount Day. Again....WTH was I thinking. No handicapped spots and no scooters. Oh and one impatient old lady. I told her if we are still friends after that we really are friends. She damn near took out a Superbowl beer display. All the while she kept telling me she was a good driver. I kept grabbing the wheel. It was a croweded store full of other impatient old people. You get the picture. I can laugh about it now. Not so funny when I was knee deep in it. It will only be funny once. I won't do that to myself again. Lesson learned.

Keep the mood and the food drive your own scooter!


  1. I have this vision of us in our dotage on side by side scooters after I've retired to AZ. WE'll be popping scooter wheelies in TJs. We would have a blast!

  2. I'm so glad you were able to make things easier for you!! You are the most important!!

  3. I can feel the relief in this post - so glad things are better! Never thought about how shopping on SCDD would entail a store full of geezers on scooters - that must have been crazy!

  4. I was thinking of us in scooters more like bumper cars, now Roxie too lol. Glad you could laugh about it and glad things are going better. Glad you got to visit with your son too.


Tell me what you think!
