Budget Woes

OH MY!  Making a budget was easy, but staying within it is HARD, HARD, HARD.  Thank goodness that the last 30 days are over with and I can start fresh again.  It's like another chance to get it right.

Prius replaces Saturn

The mechanic from my last post never showed up to fix my Saturn, but Steve's brother Philip stopped by three days ago and my Saturn is running like a new car now.  As soon as Philip opened up the hood and looked around he found the problem of the over-heating Saturn right away.  It was 2 collapsed radiator hoses and he put new ones on for me.  Now I have my Saturn back and it is running like a new top.

Since I was on here last, and having so many problems with my Saturn over-heating, I got myself a brand new 2015 Prius.  That car is great on gas.  It runs on electricity in slow city driving and on gas on the interstate highways.  It does not need to be plugged in to an electric outlet for charging, because it charges up the battery while it is moving.  This little car is always ready to go and easy on gas.  So now I have two very good cars to drive, depending on my mood.

When things are good, they are really good......

I feel good this morning!  I had a wonderful weekend riding my bike with two good friends, Steve and Rick.  We even rode some at night and that was a first for me.  I have never ridden at night before and it was nice.  If time had permitted I would have loved riding at night some more.

On the 4th of July we parked our bikes high on a hill and waited patiently for the fireworks to begin.  I ordered pizza to be delivered to our spot along with some cold drinks.  We were ready.  Nightfall came, but the fireworks didn't.  Disappointed we ate our pizza and drank our pop, and finally moved on.  As it turned out, the fireworks had been cancelled because they got drenched the night before in the monsoon that passed through our city.  I had also gotten drenched on that night, as I was carrying groceries to my car.

Today I am waiting for a mechanic to pick up my car.  It is over-heating and he is going to find out why and fix it.  I need my car because I only have one car these days.  Oh, how I miss my jeep wrangler at times like these.  The mechanic is late and I hope that he hasn't forgotten about me.

Hope everyone is having a nice sunny day like I am.

When someone says they need a break, watch out.

I thought everything was going well until I was needed by my daughter and then suddenly someone who I have gotten really close to, suddenly decides that we need a break from each other.  This is not a good sign and speaking from experience, when someone needs a break the relationship is over, and pretty well doomed.  I'm not upset though and I kind of expected it, so I'm not surprised nor heart broken this time.

A two cat day

It's very hard to type with a cat who refuses to get off my lap.  Smokey Jo has made herself very comfortable and refuses to move, so I had to move my laptop instead.

The weekend went by so fast that I don't even remember what I did or where it went, or if I even went anywhere.  I must have had fun because I'm still smiling today.  Yesterday I drove around all over Berea, then Richmond and I ended up in Lexington walking around Fayette Mall.  I spent most of the day by myself, but if I would have looked at my cell phone at least once, I would have seen that I had been invited to lunch by a new friend of mine, Miranda.  I didn't however see the text until 3:00 p.m.  I will invite Miranda for lunch at Golden Corral the next time she has a day off from work to make it up to her.  That's where she wanted to go.  For supper I went to Wendy's for chili and someone paid for my meal which was very nice of them to do.  So my day turned out to be very nice after all.

I'm glad to be alive this morning.  I got up at 5 a.m. after a good nights sleep.  I have had two good nights of sleep in a row, and that is an accomplishment for me. 

Now cat number two is trying to climb on my chest and this is a good time to stop typing.
