How to get that better bag of groceries home
Still sick, but getting better. Looks like I will recover and be able to treat the next round of sick people- Bob and Nick. They are sniffling this morning and I am expecting them to come down with this in a couple of days. Colds seem to go like that.
Food wise, it was a day of the same things that have been shown for a while- oatmeal with berries for breakfast, kale soup with veggies and hummus for lunch and spaghetti with sausage and veggies and salad for dinner- not really worth taking repeat pictures of. However yesterday we got a new addition to the family- the mode by which all of these boxes of produce will be carried from store to table in
A 2010 Chevrolet HHR. With a sunroof of all things. The model had it , Bob liked the color and the terms of the deal so he took it. We had realized about a month ago that the time had come to trade our car in because it was fast becoming a money pit, but it was just a matter of picking which model, getting the down payment and then timing of the deal. Events happened on Sunday that made it possible for the purchase to be made, yesterday was the last day for some really good buyer incentives, so even though I am sick and had no voice, Bob had to do the deed. He took Nick with him in a lesson for consumer education- how to buy a car. I like it a lot, and figure the sunroof can be used for me to create spontaneous parades and toss candy out at random children on the street or transport very large stalks of celery and so forth. Ya never know ! I am calling it "The Slurpie Mobile" much to Bob's horror. Reason for this name is this is the 7th car we have bought together, the 11th car he has owned in his life . 7 11- and what do you think of when you hear of 7 11 ? Slurpees ! 11 and 7 are good numbers for us. Nick was born at 11:17 in the morning - 11,7 plus the 10 years it took for him to get to our lives.
I am feeling well enough to exercise again today , and I even have something of a voice again.
