SW's birthday is today, Sep 7th
I got my driver's license renewed today. It cost me $140. I decided to go ahead and keep my Commercial Driver's License (CDL) as it would be almost impossible to get it back if I let it go. If I want to work as a volunteer driving for a senior center or some other similar place I will need it. So, I first had to have a DOT physical exam. That was at 08:00 and cost $85 but it confirmed that I am still alive. Then I went to the DL place. On Thursday they don't open until 09:30. Not wanting to sit outside waiting for 40 min, I did what I do so well & went to Starbucks for a mocha. Then back to the DL place a bit after 10. The regular license costs $25, plus $30 for the CDL, so $140 for both, with the medical exam. That is good for five years, but I have to have the physical annually. If I want to use the CDL.
SW called me just after 11. The florist had arrived with the bouquet of silk flowers I had ordered. She loves white roses but does have some alergies so I thought silk flowers might be best. She liked them a lot so I guess I made a good choice and so did the floral shop as they had to round up white silk roses. I wish I were over there with her on this special day.
This afternoon my neighbors & I walked back to Starbucks where I just had a cup of decaf coffee this time. I am going to try to walk a few miles every day along with my every other day work out at the Y. Maybe I'll start drinking just a tall mocha rather than a grande. Fewer calories, fewer dollars. Sounds good. That will help pay for the minutes on my cell phone that I doubled tonight. I am already 20 min over my old 450 anytime minutes for this month that doesn't end until the 19th. I've used that 470 plus about 800 free night & weekend minutes already this month. I am finally getting good use out of my cell phone!
Maybe you should look into another cell phone plan, I have 1400 anytime rollover minutes, unlimited nights and weekends, and free mobile to mobile for about 80 dollars a month for two phones.
As to the earlier post about losing your friend to cancer, I hate to hear that. I haven't been able to attend any type services since Mike passed (almost 2 years now). It's just too emotional for me.
Keep posting - your entries are always great. Now that I'm working full-time it's much harder for me to find time to update mine. LOL!
