Febuary First

Wow it's been a while since my last post.  Too long.  I have been ever vigilant keeping up on FB cause it quick and I don't have to go into much detail.  Classes are going well.  Spanish is kicking my butt.  I took it cause I thought it would be fun.  It's hard and the teacher thinks 8 hours a week, plus homework is what's required to keep up.  Who has that kind of time?  I have a test tomorrow, but I doubt it's going to go well.  I have had a headache for 2 days now and the sore throat thing started last night night.  I have vertigo when I am not in bed lying flat.  My head feels some what stuffy as well.  I have yet to get out of my P.J.'s  I know at some point I am going to have to, but not just yet.  I need to study for tomorrow, but the thought of it makes me kind of want to barf.

My niece is still visiting, but she will be going home next Friday.  I know she is past ready to go home.  She isn't happy here.  I was really hoping it would work out for her, but she misses her friends too much.  This is the 1st time she has been away from her friends and family in her entire life, I think anyway.  I have been enjoying her here, but it is what it is and I am going to enjoy it while it lasts.

I had some car trouble last week that put me stalled at the side of road.  Bless her heart, Roxie called right then.  I was so excited to be one of her daily phone a friend, yet I didn't trust myself to answer without bawling my head off.  My son in law came to help, but the car would stall every time we took the battery cables off.  So we left it in the median of the freeway during rush hour traffic and he took me to borrow their extra car.  On the way down there we got side swiped in my kid's brand new $40,000 van.  Not a good day.  Then to top it off my SIL got the ticket.  UGH!!  Luckily it was an easy fix, but an expensive one.  $100 to tow my car back to the garage.  $500 deductible to get their van fixed and another $200 for traffic school for my SIL.  OUCH!

Food and Fitness has been low on my priority list.  Especially since I started Spanish.  It's like my computer class was last semester.  Stressful.  Things will cycle back around, I just need to hold on and make the best choices I can till then.  Hope all of you are staying with it.  I have been reading my faves, not commenting much but keeping track of all of you.

Guess that's it for now.....Keep the mood and the food real.........................


  1. Hang in there sweety!!! Some how i think Roxie would have sat there and let you bawl and vent and feel better..... ((HUGS)) deb

  2. Wow, that was one heck of a BAD car day!!! So sorry about that!

    And how very sweet of Roxie to call. :)

    Oh, I took French in college (after taking 5 years of Spanish in jr high/high school) - it went so fast and kicked my butt! Don't feel bad if you're struggling with Spanish - is there a lab you can go to for help?

  3. Boy what a tough time Dana, sorry you had to go through all that. Sorry you're not liking Spanish either. I bought CD's one time that really were great wish I knew where I put them and I'd send ya a copy. Hope it gets easier. Keep your chin up. Hugs.

  4. Oh my, that WAS a bad day. I hope you get to feeling better soon!!

    Keep focused!

  5. My car almost died last week during rush hour - turns out the alternator was going and my truck just started shutting down - no lights, no radio, etc. and I was only about to go 10 mph in 45 mile zone - a cop finally pulled me over.

    Since I couldn't roll down the window (no power) I opened the car door and she shouted "ma'am - close your door!" Then proceeded to walk over and ask me to roll down my window. Um, not possible! After running my license, she escorted me to the car dealership - and $560 I was all set.

    Hope you have a great weekend!


Tell me what you think!
