As you can see, I cannot keep up with things. I haven’t checked my blog since 28 January, so it’s been almost a month since I have been here and I see my blog has kinda ‘broken’. Um, I am wondering where my header went ???? lolz
Yesterday, I turned 31. Terrible! I cannot believe it! Where have the years gone? I am certainly not at the point of my life where I have hoped to be. Yesterday, my family and I went out to dinner to Sprague’s (pancake/dinner restaurant that makes their own maple syrup and raises their own animals…kinda a big thing around in western NY) for my Grandma’s birthday(she and I share the day, hence why my middle name is Joan…). It was kinda an emotional day, with my Grandpa(her husband) being dead three years now and all and I was pretty emotionally and physically exhausted when we got home that I went right to bed at 8. It doesn’t help the fact that I have not been sleeping very well nor getting up around 4:30AM….
Chris and I did end up setting a date. My family
prompting hard being a big factor in it so they can plan their summer vacations next year. I will formally announce it on here when we send out our ‘save the date’ cards in early summer of this year. Speaking of which, he bought me a replacement ring. The other one was just a temporary ring.
I have began to tire of winter and I
think no I know, that I have cabin fever. I am sick of being cooped up in the house because I am afraid of going outside and slipping and falling or trying to save myself from slipping and screwing up my back even more. I grow weary of the cold and the lack of sunlight. Most of the plants I had bought last summer have died too. I have managed to keep a few plants alive but they are just as desperate for warmer temperatures as I am. I think spring is on the way for we had a very, very brief 15 minute thunderstorm Wednesday night and the snow is a melting a bit. It’s not as cold outside as it has been. I need to start walking and working out as tolerated to get back in shape and so I can look nice in a wedding gown. I have a friend who already has a membership at the Y but just needs someone to work out with. Because I have SSI, I qualify for a free membership.
We are finally able to purchase a car because of my fiancee’s tax refund. It will come to about $3200 after everything is all said and done. It will get us from point A to B. It’s a 2001 Ford Focus. It’s fully loaded. Has a little rust above the rear wheel wells. There will be a new muffler and battery put in before we get it. There’s new tires on it. The engine and the inside of the car is clean. Chris is going to have it taken down to a garage to put it up on a rack to have the undercarriage looked at and the car inspected just to make sure. We are hoping to have everything finalized so he can drive it by the end of the week. I don’t have my license anymore because it is suspended and I still own $150 for a stupid ticket. I don’t know if I could drive anymore because of the pain in my legs and back.
I don’t feel any older. I don’t feel any wiser. I think my bones and my body feel older though. But I guess that comes with all my ailments and such.
But as winter winds down, I am hoping to be more out and about more.
