Checking Out The Snow With Dude

Winter really tried to start on Friday night, but it was only about a half an inch of snow, it just made the roads disproportionately dangerous & slippery.  I saw a lot of accidents on my way home from Grandma's on Friday night.  Thankfully it was just warm enough Saturday for most of that ice to melt before the snow started again late Saturday night.  As of right now it is still coming down pretty steady ... I just hope it's plowed by the time I have to go to work!  Dude likes the snow:

I don't really care for how the Avalon handles in this weather.  It's like I don't feel the road as much as in my Buick, when the traction control kicks in I can barely tell except there's an icon that pops up on the dash.  And I'm NOT looking forward to doing test drives in this either.  But, I don't really have a choice.

Thanks for reading =)

Vlog - Car Accidets Suck or RIP My Buick Regal

This is really not the return to this blog that I had planned.  I had some poems I was considering posting, and a few new knots I've been doodling.  But I never got around to that, and now I've got something much more unpleasant to deal with:

I think I forgot to mention in the vid, I went to North Memorial Hospital.  The ambulance offered to take me wherever I wanted, and I chose North Memorial because it's close to home, less than a mile actually, and I've also been seen there before.  Three times actually, all for my asthma.  And as long and boring as this visit was, it was cake compared to those trips.  No unconsciousness, no overnight in the ICU, no freaking commode next to the bed since there's too many wires & crap hooked up to go to the bathroom like a normal person.

Another thing is that this was one rare instance where I really wished that I had a cell phone.  In my normal day-to-day life, I could care less if I have a cell.  Extra hassle & extra expense.  But in this case I couldn't call anyone until I got to the public phone at the hospital.  I guess I could have asked someone, but my point is, my vague consideration to buy a cell phone for Christmas has become a more firm intention.  But that's a whole other hassle of choosing a phone & a carrier & a plan & etc and since I have a time limit on the rental, a new car is going to have to take priority.

I'll try not to go AWOL on this blog for such a long period again - although I hope things don't stay quite so interesting as this.

Thanks for reading.

Vlog #27 - Update Resolutions, Work, Etc

I was excited about my promotion all week - then the last few days I've been a bit down, almost like I used up all my good mood even though I didn't have any particular reason to be in a bad mood.  Still, feeling better today, actually getting a lot accomplished this week as far as playing catchup, editing & posting & continuing this seemingly never-ending attempt at organization.

This upcoming week will be interesting, I feel like with reporting to my new boss work should be a lot less stressful, so I'll be more in the mood to get things done when I come home instead of just being focused on trying to relax.  But I won't know until it's actually happening I guess.  Another good thing is my old boss (who I do still have to work with to an extent, just not report to) will be on vacation for most of the week & that always makes things more mellow.  Plus I am off Friday, so it's a short work week for me & that's always a good thing =)

Thanks for reading.

Vlog #26 - New Year's Resolutions

I don't ever feel like I completely fail at my resolutions, but neither to I feel that I succeed fully.  Maybe this year will be the year that changes?  I feel like I get so much support through my followers, especially those that follow my vlogs =)  I really do appreciate it!

I hope keeping it simple will help.  Taking small steps at a time to reach a far goal ... as a step towards being more organized, I've actually created myself a to-do list.  Not just in my head, but literally wrote down in a notebook everything I keep thinking about needing to do.  And I've already been able to check several things off & add some new things.  Working to get the pile on the desk catalogued & put away, and think good thoughts even when I'm having a bad day...  I've heard it takes something like 30 days to form a habit, so if I can keep it up through this month, I can keep it up the next month & the next.  I'll try to do some periodic updates on my progress.

Thanks for reading.

Vlog #25 - My Christmas Gifts

I should make editing my vids faster one of my New Year's resolutions I think LOL.  Still, I made it in under a week!  Which is better than many times:

Today if I have time, or otherwise tomorrow - since I do have the day off - I'll be considering my resolutions & recording a vlog for those.  Some of the usual suspects will be on my list of course like weight loss, but I already know what my big #1 is going to be & that's more sleep.  Yes I have tons to do, but when I'm tired I'm less efficient so I'm not really making that much progress when I'm up until midnight or later & need to be up at 5 in the morning for work.  Other than that ... well, you'll just have to stay tuned & see =)

Thanks for reading.
