Gotta love springtime in Arizona. We hit the 90’s the past few days. Yet tomorrow we’re supposed to stop shy of 80, and by the weekend dip another 15-20 degrees. Crazy stuff!
We hammered out a deal to rent a vehicle for a few weeks whilst either we get the old car running or get a newer one purchased, whichever comes first. It’s looking more and more like it’ll be new car first, which I can’t say breaks my heart. I know roughly what we have to spend and we should have enough to get a vehicle with a working AC. That’ll be a godsend this summer!
My next bonus check kicks ass. Seriously, it’ll be enough to pay off a big chunk toward the vehicle. If I can keep the momentum going it shouldn’t take too long to get ‘er done, which alone will be enough to remove a lot of stress from my life. I can deal with that!
Still half-assed looking at houses, though not going to futz too much with it until the car’s resolved. If I can kick out a few more big bonus checks like my next one (and it won’t take many) the house will also be more or less of a slam dunk. I’m looking forward to that too. We actually have a respectable amount of space, but being married to a pack rat it sure doesn’t seem like it. I tend to go through things once or twice a year and cull mercilessly, from clothing to books to whatever. If
nagged encouraged my spousal unit will do a bit of cleanout, but he sure as heck doesn’t like it, heh.
I have a follow up tomorrow with the knee doc and next week with my GP to check what may be skin cancer. I didn’t notice the spot but my daughter saw it this weekend and insisted I get checked. If it is skin cancer it will be a chop and stitch, I add industrial-strength sunscreen to my routine, and life goes on. I looked again this afternoon and while the spot ain’t pretty I am not convinced it is cancer either. God knows I get enough skin tags and some of them are ugly and dark colored. They’re also short-lived, albeit annoying.
Otherwise I’m finally shaking the cold that’s kicked my butt for the past few weeks. I came home yesterday and passed out for several hours, got up and shoveled in a humongous bowl of Chinese food (mostly veggies) and curled up in bed again for the rest of the night. Today while I can’t say I felt great, I wasn’t coughing nearly as much despite being on the phones all day.
We had a full house for Easter: all the kids and a good chunk of the grandbabies. I took a bunch of pictures with my iPhone, now just need to get them uploaded… If and when I do I’ll probably stick them on Facebook, since the kids asked to see them there.
