I decided since I hadn't coughed all night and was feeling pretty good that I would "test the waters" so to speak and I just came home from the pool where I walked almost a kilometer! I wasn't planning to do that much but it just felt good! I will be giving more detail in the weight thread.

I am now taking a break before working on my craft room. It will mostly be sitting and sorting today.

I went to start the car and run some errands. It wouldn't start. No noise, no clicks, nothing. While I could've gotten it jumped, I figured that's why I have AAA. Called, and got a jump within a half hour. I knew there was a reason I pay these guys! Now I need to figure out how to reprogram the Sirius radio, it's been years since I last did that. :sigh:

Anndd, I went to start the car again, a bit of buzzing, then nothing. Another call to AAA. This time I think I'll head to the mechanic....

Just cleaned out the car. Off to Nissan tomorrow morning to test drive a new Sentra. I need something that gets better gas mileage.

I've been wearing progressive for years. My reading vision is worse than my distance vision. At first I just had reading glasses but I got tired of taking them off and on, so next time I got the progressive. I was way too vain to wear bifocals. I have heard that the stronger your prescription is, the harder it is to get used to progressive.

Take a look at the Honda Civic too. A great small car.

I looked at the Civic and took a test drive but with my long legs I just couldn't get comfortable. We have a Nissan Rogue now and they have a March sales event with 0% financing for return customers. Soooo.....we"ll see what tomorrow brings.

Good luck. The Sentra is a great car too.

I just finished building the last of my cube furniture for my craft room. It was a double height with shelves for four more photo boxes which I attached on top of the previous set of four. Now I can sort out all the family tree photos I have and they will be neatly tucked away. I should be ready to start taking pictures. It is turning out almost better than I had planned. I still have a long way to go, but I am having fun.

I got back home about half an hour ago. I went to spend some time with a friend who is moving to London.

The traffic on the way there was horrible. Today's driving quirk was excessive lane changing. Well, that only lasted till the traffic slowed to a crawl. It took me an hour and fifteen minutes to drive a little less than 30 km, ~18 miles.

At least paying for parking was easy. We have a system where you have to walk to the nearest pay station and enter your parking spot number. It was cold and windy. Then I remembered that I have an app for parking. I sat in the car, out of the wind, and paid for my parking with my phone. I also renewed the spot without having to leave my friend's place.

I got some of her clothes that she doesn't fit any more and some matching place mats and napkins. And now I'm trying to figure out a snack for while I read before going to sleep.
