Feeling Better About My Decision

All week I found myself obsessively staring at the gas-tank indicator thingy. Every time I went anywhere, I would stare to see how much gas I had used. Maybe I felt like the more I stared at it, the more I could will it to not go down as much. Like trying to make water boil faster by staring at it.

I have been on the brink of tears a few times this week doing regular things like: go to the drive through bank machine, drive through at Starbucks, listening to music on my way to work, driving past semi trucks on the highway. The reason there was almost tears is because when I did these things in the truck it was easy. Getting money from the ATM was a breeze. Just pull up and lean out. In the car, I am almost sitting on the ground and have to hang halfway out to reach the buttons (true story). Same thing with Starbucks. When driving past semis I can now see the undersides of those huge road monsters, and  last, when driving to work and getting pumped listening to ridiculously loud music pounding from a BOSE stereo, now feels like I am listening with my mom in the car....sigh

But then Friday came. I got in to drive to work and looked at the gas thing and saw this:


It was Friday and it was only at half!!! On my goodness, my below average stereo system sounded like front row to the concert that drive to work!!

It was a great weekend!

Today for Music Monday I asked Maclean for some picks. She has great taste in music so this is all her!








And the last is my favorite!!!




Have a great week!!!
