Yes, I’ve been moving carefully this last week. Making damned sure that everything I own is legal and I’m not going to get into any type of trouble…like even get stopped for a traffic infraction. I’m knuckling down hardcore, and I think it’s making my bestie a bit uncomfortable. I’m serious, I want nothing to do with anything that would put me at risk for going to fucking jail.
Put two new tires on my truck, which obviously has a front end alignment issue cuz it’s eating the insides of the tires. Scheduled it for an alignment next Wednesday morning. I changed the headlight that was out myself. That’s a no-brainer, removed and replaced the low beam bulb and reinstalled the headlight fixture; took me all of 10 minutes. So it’s 100%, will definitely pass this month’s required yearly vehicle safety inspection and now that the 4 wheel drive is also working once again I should do well through the winter with it – which was my goal. And if I get stopped everything is in order, current registration, insurance card is up to date, and vehicle is inspected. I am wearing my seatbelt even – it’s actually a law here, but I often don’t wear it around town. If I get stopped it will be for speeding – which I am trying NOT to do either!
We had one hell of a Nor’ Easter type storm here early in the week. I was without power here at the house for a couple of days. Some peoole in the state, about 70,000 still have no power now, 5 days later, mostly the more rural areas that had worse damage from the 75-80 mph winds. We got about 3″ of rain, and we are STILL below normal for rainfall! What a year weather wise, it’s been a truly weird one. Today is Nov. 3, and it was almost 80 degrees here. Ridiculous. Global warming is REAL.
I’m gonna make this short tonight, I need sleep. I just wanted to check in here and let you all know I made it through the week unscathed! No major events! I got things handled, stayed out of trouble, stayed away from bad influences and am on the right road. The last 2 weeks showed me I was fast headed it the wrong direction temporarily…but I’ve re-negotiated things and I’m doing quite well.
Thanks very much to all of those who made comments and sent me texts and emails. I do appreciate your support and encouragement! Love ya all! …more to come this weekend!!!
