Rambling On 14

Howdy people!

I kind of fell of the grid there for a bit.  I kept meaning to post all week but then just never followed through.   I’ve had a very short attention span all week.  Oops!

3 day weekend ahead!! Woo hoo!!!! Who has plans?  I am going to try and avoid this crazy heat wave we’ve been hit with.   I need to attempt a longish run somehow but Saturday is showing a high of 110.   Yay.๐Ÿ˜’

I also need to go bed shopping.  Partially Doc’s orders now too.  Need to figure out what part of my tiredness is from my shitty bed and what is thyroid based.  I was like great, can insurance help pay for it then? ๐Ÿ˜›  Plus bed shopping sucks.  How do I know what feels good? It’s 5 minutes in a store- totally awkward.  Bed stores should have sleep overs.  You like this bed? Alright, come on in on Friday night- 8 to 8.  Sleep a whole night on it. That will give you an idea of how the bed sleeps.

I love my Escape in all ways but 2.  I miss 2 things about my Altima and the day I bought it just popped up on Timehop so I’m feeling nostalgic.  The gas tank.  That car had a 19 gallon tank and damn I miss that.   I get the same gas mileage now but with a smaller tank I feel like I am in the gas station all the damn time.   And hills- that car ate hills for breakfast.  Whereas the Escape cries big crocodile tears.  I live at around 1000 elevation and work at 50.   Depending on which way I go to work I can get up to 2000 and down again.  The Altima purred.  Seriously, it was a source of pride that my tachometer was rarely above 1500 RPM’s.  If someone was tailgating, I knew I’d lose them on the hills.  This one?  Not so much.  I call it names when driving over the grade.  It’s getting better though.  I’m a firm believer that you can train a car.  I said that to mother once and she said I was a nuts.  ๐Ÿ˜›

And the news just gave a heat warning again.   Oh joy.  They even canceled all the high school sporting events due to “excessive heat”.   Home town may break a record high.  Yay.

What are you doing this weekend?

  1. I’m not doing anything this weekend, and I love it. Good luck in your search for the right mattress. I always took them for granted, until I found “the one”. We spent roughly 1/3 of our lives (more like 1/4 for me) on those things, so it’s took to make it count. Also I hate to tell you, but I’m on your mom’s side. That’s nuts. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I just traded my Altima in for an Escape as well. I don’t have the grades and elevation to deal with, but I hear you on the gas tank size! Hope you get your long run in, here in Michigan we’re dealing with unseasonably cool temps so I’ll be bundled up for my 10 miles tomorrow.


  3. 110 degrees?! That’s crazy hot!! It’s downright chilly here in Indiana. So weird for early September! Also, I’m a fellow Escape driver, too! I had a Honda Accord before and definitely had to fill up less. But I think the Escape is way cuter and obviously bigger, which is definitely a plus ๐Ÿ™‚ enjoy your weekend!


    1. Hi Molly! It’s been freaky hot here this summer, ok maybe only a little hotter than normal. Maybe I am just getting too old too deal with it. Yes, I love the Escape for most everything else, just miss that gas tank. ๐Ÿ˜› Hope you had a good weekend!

  4. Hahaha, yes on the Escape chugging up the hills! But it does better than me! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ And no, I don’t think you’re nuts. Cars settle into nice routines, don’t they, ๐Ÿ˜‰

    So glad I don’t have your heat, but then again, we’re getting our own nasty heatwave that I’m not too impressed with. So, stay hydrated!! ๐Ÿ˜


    1. Yes!! You’re the first person who has agreed with me! The Escape is getting better on the main hill I drive every day but the grade is still a mess.

      Oh, it’s been a rough weekend. Saturday got up to around 112 and Sunday brought humidity and rain of all things. While still 100. What?! Hope it cools down for you soon!

  5. I’m not doing anything this weekend other than running, running some errands, and relaxing. I’m looking very much forward to having Monday off work! I agree with you on the bed sleepover. I’d definitely be all for a store that did that.


  6. I’m super behind on reading posts so I’m trying to catch up while I’m on vacation and my boyfriend is at work. Haha I hope your new bed works out for you. The stores really should have a sleepover. I’d sign up for that. Haha
