On the 21st day of the new year I started writing the following: (I've added in some up to date comments in red.)
"I can't stop laughing at the fact that this is my very first post of 2012! I guess that means I better make this particular post spectacular. It's probably best to describe the last 21 days with some bullet points because I have had various car issues (which have continued) and shed numerous tears; I have had wild dreams and large mood swings (causing me to falsely think I was pregnant); I have worked out and almost passed out (also causing false pregnancy hopes); and I have had dizzy spells (again, see above) and racing rhythms. But I'm here and completely sure that this will not be my reality for the whole year, so I'm happy (still true).
- Tally for 2012 in regards to car items replaced: Temperature Sensor, Water Pump, Hoses, Radiator, Spark Plugs, Fan Belt, and Brake Fluid (plus...two new power steering pumps). Yeah, I'm ready for a break when it comes to visiting mechanics. Fortunately for me, my daddy is amazing with cars so he drove 5 hours to install the radiator so I wouldn't be hit with outrageous labor rates. He also is quite skilled in calming me down when I'm trying to navigate across 4 lanes of rush hour traffic as my car is losing power steering, heating up and shutting down. Don't know what I'd without him (also still true and not just because he's phenomenal with cars)."
Back to the now:
And now I am blank again but less overwhelmed so yay! Hopefully my next post won't take 51 days.
