Falling Behind - Again

You think I'd be more faithful to posting to this thing - as much as I'm on the computer.

Updates: the other guy's insurance company took responsibility for the accident and totaled the van. They sent us a check to pay for the van and this coming weekend one of R.'s coworkers will fix it for around $300. So we got a little bit of a financial windfall there, which always comes in handy.

I've been having fun with the sculpey clay, but haven't taken any pictures yet.

I've been doing ok with not eating after dinner, but the exercising has kind of fallen away. Today was really hot, but when things cool off, I'll get back to walking. Today I had a migraine for the first time in a long time, but I might have forgotten to take my blood pressure medicine this morning. The headache has dissipated now.

J. is away at boy scout camp this week, so it is quiet around the house. I miss him. D. is out doing something somewhere - LOL! At least when he takes his bike, I know he isn't riding with someone else!

Shelina in her blog the other day talked about visiting Serpentine Mound in Ohio. That brought back memories of a sixth grade field trip to celebrate the end of the school year and moving on the junior high. We kids kind of had the run of the area after lunch and I remember wandering off into the woods and meeting a boy from another school who was there on a field trip as well. His name was Paul Gibson and I fell head over heels in love with him in that short afternoon. We shared a few stolen kisses and that summer I carved our initials into a picnic table in Mount Echo Park. Those initials were still there after about 15 years, visible under several layers of paint. I never heard from him again. Wonder where he is now...?

What a lovely story, reminiscing of days gone by... Great news on the windfall, God is good!

My insurance company took my totalled car so they could sell it for scrap. I'm pretty sure they made a nice profit.
