Happy New Year
I survived the holidays. Yea me! So happy it is done, and we get back to normal. Rented a storage unit yesterday, so we can clean out our garage. Started with the Christmas stuff. Now we can move the car back in.
We've been having beautiful sunshine for the last week or so and I feel good. The cold bothers me (it's 27 right now) I'll take some cold, if I have sunshine to go with it. It's been a struggle for me - nothing to be concerned about, just something that happens to me in the winter and some winters are worse than others. The husband bought me one of those desk lamps that is supposed to simulate some sunshine. It's been sunny so I haven't had a chance to use it on dreary days. So hopefully that will help.
Enough about all of that. Navy is out trying to buy a previously owned vehicle now that he has a good job and makes some decent money. Foodie is away for the weekend - and Char is having major car problems - actually, she is having a hard time communicating to the mechanic because she forgets. Her memory problems seem to be getting worse. It's either that, or she has trained herself not to think. I can't tell what exactly it is, but it's an issue, that drains me.
Husband got a little raise from the state - but I guess we inched over into a different tax bracket and so are netting less. $59.60 less a month and yeah, it's not a big amount, but it still bugs me. Not to mention our gas is supposed to go up .10 to .70 a gallon, paying for carbon credits. I was enjoying the lower gas prices, the last few weeks. The lowest I paid was $2.46 a gallon. So that 59.60 and add in the increase in gas and we start the year, bringing in less. Really really pisses me off. (And yes, I said piss!!!)
I really do hope this finds you all well and Happy New Year for all of us!
