Midweek Confessions, road etiquette, first day of school and working out
at Elizabeth's site and confess to our hearts desire. This week I'm sharing something that I need to get
off of my chest, road etiquette. Lets start with turn signals, they're there for a reason folks. I hate
that I can't make a turn into traffic when someone has a turn signal on b/c 9 times out of ten they
forgot to turn it off. Or even better they didn't have a turn signal on and I could have already made
my exit when they just blindly made their turn. THANKS. Speed limits, they are set for a reason.
While I use them merely for suggestive purposes, you , nice person in front of me do not need to go
15- 20 miles under the speed limit. I would like to make my destination sometime before my next
birthday. Honking, must we honk at everything? I realize we are all in a hurry but one honk from the
car in front of you will suffice. All 20 of us do not need to honk. The passing Lane, while on the
interstate I have a bad habit of staying in the left lane. However, I speed. If you are going to hog the
left lane, do not drive at 30mph. Either stay ahead of traffic or LET ME PASS!!!! Oh and that finger
you just gave me, I don't care...you're 5th in line buddy, I've got a whole hand now.
This was E's first week of Kindergarten. He looked like such a big boy in his polo, dress pants, shoes
and belt. I took the mandatory 1st day of school photo with a chalkboard and he was sent on his
merry way. His mom has decided to send him BACK to daycare for before and aftercare much to our
chagrin and it took everything in me not to pick him up at noon on his first day so that he wouldn't
sit for 5 hours in an afterschool program. Being that I have no say in the matter leaves me feeling
pretty helpless and heartbroken for the kid. We've offered to take him and our offer has been denied.
Shockingly, I've used my frustration for good! My yoga pants have finally seen some exercise! I've
done the unthinkable, I worked out. Monday I walked 1.5 miles. Tuesday my friend said lets skip
and I DRAGGED her out of the house to walk 2.5 miles and this morning I went to the gym and used
the elliptical for 30 minutes. New leaf. I may just need new yoga pants soon for a whole different
reason than ever before, mine may be too big!
