We drove back to North Carolina today. I am lucky to be alive right now. I hate ridiculous drivers who don't really realize that there are HUMANS driving the other cars on the highway. I almost got into a serious accident because this guy was impatient and pulled out in front of me while I was going 70 mph (the speed limit) in Virginia. Thankfully my (new!) car has excellent brakes and everyone around me realized what was going on, so I had room to swerve. Ugh!! It's so frustrating! I sobbed for the next 20 minutes of the drive, and then got tears in my eyes for the rest of the drive whenever I remembered it. We got home around 10, a little later than expected because we stopped at one of our favorite restaurants in Durham.
At some point while I was home I came into contact with poison ivy. And not in a normal place, like on your ankle or toe or elbow or something. Instead, there's a patch of it on my PALM. Ouch!! It's driving me up the wall. Especially while I was driving because it was rubbing against the steering wheel. I tried as hard as I could to just not think about it, but it was so irritating!
So, if you didn't catch the clue earlier in this post, I got a new car! Picture to be posted soon... It's nothing very special - but it runs, which makes it automatically trump the Neon! Yes, sadly, Greeon the Neon died a month or two ago, that car really got around. My mom surprised me while I was home and got me a used Ford Escort...which is red...which has a silver racing stripe... I can sense all of your jealousy!! ;-) It's nice though, the A/C actually works, and it only has like 40,000 miles. It's a car that works well, that's all I could ever ask for!!
That's about all that has been going on with me. I'm babysitting for a new family tomorrow night. They have a 3 year old girl and a 1 year old boy. Em found them for me on Craigslist, and I interviewed with them. They liked me, and hired me for tomorrow night. So hopefully that goes well.
Hope everyone else is having a great start to their summer.
