Twilight Zone Wednesday

on August 29, 2012

Have you ever just had one of those days?  You know, a day where you swear that your body is asleep somewhere and everything around you is the twilight zone?  Well, my Wednesday was in that zone.  🙂

All day.


I got up this morning feeling great, but had a slight foot thing.  After my run yesterday, I finished the lawn and when I was all finished the top of my left foot had a bit of pain.  As a baby runner, one of the things that I am learning is to distinguish pain from soreness.  This is definitely pain.  I am kind of ticked off at myself for doing whatever I did, but I just have to roll with it.  I wasn’t able to elevate my foot while at work today, but I have it up now and a lovely bag of frozen corn on top of it.  🙂


So with my foot thing in tow I headed to work.  Um, did I forget to tell you that my AC went out in my car?  I think I did.  Thank the Lord the temps are not in the triple digits anymore!  Anyway, I called a local place and made an appointment for it to be looked at.  I don’t know what your experience is like with mechanic places, but I really hate that they have one up on ya.  I wouldn’t know how to fix anything on my car.  At all.  But they know this.  And they use this.  I was a little agitated when they said they would call after checking it out and it set there for 2 hours.  (I can see the place from where I work)  The impatient person in me calls to see if I need to bring it another day and they had already looked at it!  The cost??  When all is said and done it is going to be $1000!  The part and the labor to fix an air compressor is apparently expensive.  Who knew!!??   They are also not going to be able to get to it until next week.  Now I am not too much of a girly girl, but driving to see my parents this weekend (3 hours one way) without the AC was going to be pushing it.  🙂


I was already frustrated with a fellow employee, the foot was hurting and then this whole AC thing…..what’s a girl to do???  I called my daddy that’s what I did.  With tears in my eyes, I picked my cell up and pushed the “dad’s cell” button and began to tell him about my day.  I don’t care how old that I am I am so thankful and blessed beyond measure to still have my parents in my life.  I don’t know what I would do without them.  They love me, even when I disappoint them.  They encourage me when I am down and they coach me when I need coaching.  I love them very much.


What did my dad do?  Well I will tell you what he did.  Since my parents are retired, they spend a lot of time in their RV.  Where they are staying at, my dad helps out with they yardwork…..mainly because he can’t set still.  Anyhoo, the owner of the RV park has a son who also works on cars.  Long story short, I am going to drive up Friday afternoon, take my car to the car guy early Saturday morning and he is going to fix it for a good $200 less.  How cool is that?


I feel tired and premenstrual.



I did drown my sorrow in some dark chocolate  🙂


Tomorrow is going to be another busy one.  I have to work until 5:00 and then I will head home instead of going to run (wah) and then I will wash some clothes and get all packed to leave Friday afternoon.  I am leaving straight from work Friday so I will need to have everything ready by then.  One of the ladies that I work with is going to come by the house and take care of the animals while I am gone.  Thank you Tressie!


It’s going to be raining the day that I leave and probably this Saturday, but I am so excited to just get away and relax for a bit.  Not run away from things, just take it easy.


**just a note**  Please don’t be offended with my comments about mechanics.  I do think there are some trustworthy people out there who do not gauge and who are honest and decent.


This statement really stuck out to me during my bible study….

My primary concern should not be, What should I do with my life tomorrow? but, What does God want me to do today?


With the day that I have had today, I am smiling at the way that God really does work things out.  Even as I type this up and overwhelmed that He loves us even when we throw tantrums.  Have a super night!!

    • Ugh, it’s on top. I ran 1.4 miles and then finished the yard and then as soon as I put on my flip flops it started to bother me. :/ I have made sure to ice it at night until I head off to sleepy land. 🙂 I feels much better today and I am laying off of it for a few days. Thank you Cait!
