here I go again

Happy Weekend Friends! 

I took Friday as a rest day. I am planning on running 7 miles sometime today, and I wanted my legs to be rested for today’s run.

My original plans for this 7mile run was to go run w/ the group this morning. and then. 5am came and went. The alarm went off and I decided I wasn’t getting up. I have no excuse except that I just wanted to sleep in. and sleep in I did. I got out of bed at 9:30. heck yes!


source – I just wanted to post a cute puppy picture.

I’m considering using the guest pass I have for the Ymca to get a work out in today. It seems like a good day to go over there and check it out. It’s probably not to busy, and maybe a new environment will help me tackle 7 miles on the treadmill.

Today I have big plans:

  • sit on the couch
  • do laundry
  • gym/run
  • sweep/mop
  • grocery shopping
  • return the smallest george forman you’ve ever seen to Target.

Oh man, I’m so cool.  Oh, I also need to work on my blog. I’m playing with the theme, which is why it looks a hot mess right now. I wasn’t happy with the way it was looking before… It’s a constant work in progress.

I like to dream, okay, I love to dream. Sometimes it gets me through the work day. Don’t get me wrong, I have a great job. I love my job, but the summers are really slow for healthcare in Florida so sometimes I get a little bored.

Dreaming pulls me through.

I like to dream about the places I would like to live, the car that I really, really, really want. bad.

Lately, I’ve been dreaming hard about what kind of car I want to get. My car is getting close to 100,000 miles. Truthfully, there is nothing wrong with my car.  My Dad & I have had good luck with toyota’s, they’ve lasted forever… unless you wreck them.


oops.

My car is a 2008, with 94,000 …. uh. yah.

I have this problem.. It’s called “old car-itis “  After a few years with a car I get bored and start itching for a new one. This is a serious problem. I’ve been driving since I was 16, I’m 26 now.. sooo, 10 years.

In 10 years I’ve had:

  • ‘89 toyota 4runner – met an untimely death (2001-2001)
  • 88 toyota pickup – sold it to an ex boyfriend..  (2001-2003)
  • 92 honda civic – (2003-2004)
  • 01 ford mustang (2004-2007)  this car hit 100k and went downhill. plus, I had a mid-twenties crisis
  • 08 scion TC (2007 – current)

See, it’s time for a new car. I’ve been eyeing this baby:

weeeeeeee, a 2007 350Z Roadster. Boooyah.

Actually, this car is a automatic transmission, and that’s not cool. But I LOVE that color. Oh man.  Do you prefer a manual transmission, or automatic? 

I’ve been driving an manual since I got my 2nd truck, the 88 toyota pickup. I was less than excited when I found out it was a manual, but it was a truck my Dad had so I had no option. I was just going to have to learn to drive it. 

I think I learned to drive it pretty quickly, and once I got the hang of it, I’ve never gone back. Every car since that truck has been a manuel. (Chris’ truck is an automatic, but that’s his).

What do you dream about? Cars, houses, jobs, kids?

What gets you through a boring day?

 

Livin’ life, one daydream at a time!

  1. Scions! I think those are cool cars..but having a little orange roadster seems pretty cool as well! As you know upped to a bigger car to handle the winters in the northeast and am happy with my decison. This is my fourth car in 10 years. Yikes. I am all automatic because I have no idea how tondeove manual!!

  2. I started out with automatic cars but since I spent quality time driving Chris’s manual Civic after I crashed my own car I have never gone back. A manual is rather annoying in the traffic jams of Denver but amazing when driving in the mountains!

    Although I will *never* have a car with leather seats. Seat heater or not, I’m not a fan. I hate it when my legs stick to a seat!

    After driving Chris’s pimpin’ WRX last winter and then recently while mine was getting fixed {after he hit a deer with it…} I’ve decided I want a car with AWD and a turbo…or at least some amazing torque!

  3. We dream too. We dream you’ll actually show up some Saturday like you’re suppose too. Brat! Ok, I feel better. Glad to hear your knee is holding up Jena, keep your confidence up, you’ll be back to full strength later this fall. Take care.
