i've been watching Top Gear UK for days now. i can't get enough of this show. when i tire of the humor, i concentrate on the car information. i'm not turning into a gear head or anything that extreme, but i've developed a new appreciation of cars. part of me wants to be a mechanic.
doc bought a car. i'm so excited. and B said he'd teach me how to ride the scooter. i'm going to need it because i have a feeling wherever we move to will be in the middle of a suburb, away from corner stores and highways. i'm so tired of living beside the freeway with the loud trucks and noise. we want a proper house. we may stay here another month, just because it took so long to get the car. and we needed the car to go look at houses. plus it's an SUV so it will be able to help us move. yay! things are looking up and i'm beginning to relax about the move.
looking back on the past 12 years, i'm really glad doc and i decided not to have children. we are definitely not the parental type. and to be honest, we're just getting comfortable with each other and ourselves. the heady days are over, the passion has leveled out. we've been together a long time, and i'm glad we're still together. that thought just occurred to me as i sat here watching dawn creep up.
once we get settled, i'm thinking of going off meds for a while to see if i get any better. i'm really sick of being a zombie.
the whole pink slime thing has pushed me to stop eating pre-ground beef. if i have any ground beef, it will be from a butcher, and i'll have to watch them grind it. surprisingly to me, this removes a lot of regular foods from my diet. and felix will never again share a bacon cheeseburger with me. i'd go on a bear like all salmon diet, but all we can get here is farmed salmon and it just isn't the same as wild salmon. maybe we;ll move to a neighborhood with organic and free-range foods. or now that we have a car, we can go to Whole Foods. are they reliable with the organic stuff? does anyone know? i've never been to one.
