Bad Week

I decided to make a life long change and join weight watchers on Tuesday. I read through all the materials that night and decided I would start the actual plan on Wednesday. Seeing what I weigh was a huge wake up call and a little depressing but hey at least I'm trying to do something about it. I want to be healthy and feel good.

My day went well until my drive home which involved tires screeching and a loud boom. I knew this would probably happen eventually as there have been several close calls before. You can't go from 55 mph to a complete stop in 2 seconds. I'm trying to stay positive and tell myself again and again at least you were not hurt badly. My poor little car was. My favorite car, I have had for 8 years, never giving me any problems, did every oil change, service that was recommended, and also was paid off. Ugh! I was planning on trading it in next year to get more of a family car, two door car would be a little tough. My husband and I are waiting patiently for the insurance adjuster to evaluate the damage. The dealership estimates $6500 right now, not sure that my car is worth that much, might be close. But then again do I want a car that was wrecked, it will probably never be the same. :o( Oh well I'm sure everything will work out for the best. Oh yes kinda funny CPD calls for a wrecker. This two shady guys come one looks like santa claus the other was a skinny thing with no teeth , pop bottle glasses and a cigarrette in hhis mouth the whole time! they wanted to take my car to their storage lot somewhere downtown on 4th street that sounded really shady! I said NO I don't think so. When I think about them now I laugh. Wish I had taken a picture. Darn!

One positive thing is I am doing great on my weight watchers. Trying to stay away from the scale so I do not get discouraged but honestly I am feeling better already. I did did a cute rental car, a black Nissan Sentra.
Just hoping this is not a sign of a string of bad luck that's about to happen. Please no!

Pretty Picture

I took this picture the other night on our way back from the lot. I thought it was so pretty the rays of sunshine coming through the clouds. Awwwww!

Finally some progress.........

At one time I thought we would not be building a house. The first part of this year was so stressful for us, one bad event after another. That seems to have passed, thank goodness. It feels so good to actually see it happening now. I went out to look a the foundation 3 times this weekend. I went with Chad Friday and Saturday, then I took my sister out Saturday evening. Hope the rest of the process goes smoothly!

We Broke Ground!
