I’ll be back later today to post my normal Wednesday ‘green’ post but for now I need to get a few things off my chest.
It all started Monday morning when at 10:00 AM I was informed that my roof did indeed need to be replaced and it will not be covered by insurance. Why you may ask? Because the owners before us choose organic shingles when they replaced the roof in 1998 and turns out those shingles suck. They can’t handle the heat that builds in your attic and they start to curl and loose their grit. That started the $$ conversation, we have a good savings account but don’t want to put such a big dent in it right now. Since the roof isn’t leaking or anything we are going to start saving like mad, but that means cutting out a lot of fun things….
So I’m not looking forward to cutting out the gym, I keep telling myself that for the summer it will be fine and I can start up again in the winter but that is adding to my mood.
Tuesday was fine except my neck was bugging me.
Then today…I got out of the house on time (even a few min early) but as soon as I jumped in the car I saw the empty light, in the Pathfinder I don’t think I would even make it to work…so I started towards the gas station, Then I thought I didn’t have my wallet that slowed me down. Found it put in 2 gallons of gas and was on my way literally hitting every red light on the way to work. Next I noticed my husbands parking pass for work on my dash, great that means he has to pay or go get a ticket validated, not something you want to ask for to often and our greatest ‘fear’ with the shared car thing.
No I’m sitting at work with a very sore neck grumpy trying really hard not to give in to my sugar craving because I know it won’t really help anything….GRRRR.
