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.😒
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? 😛 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. 😛
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.
