A little drama

It’s been a bit of a dramatic week though dramatic is not a word you would normally associate with us and our mundane lives in the city.

First, there was an earthquake (what earthquake? I never felt a thing!) which sent Raine and her entire college scuttling down 6 floors when pencil cases fell to the floor and the college kids, Raine included, felt a sudden dizziness. I’d barely dropped her off at college an hour earlier when she called to have me pick her up as classes had been cancelled for the day.

This week, we saw 2 accidents on the highway within 5 minutes’ drive of each other. This morning, on the way to the gym, I almost hit a car that was making a turn when it wasn’t his turn. I honked, he glared and drove on despite our vehicles being inches from each other. Driving gives me high blood pressure these days. Flying lessons are definitely on my to-do list.

On a brighter note, I’m just done painting my nails. Aah, that was therapeutic! And now that the weekend is here, I’m just going to kick off my shoes… so I can paint my toenails 😆 . What’s therapeutic for you?

    Hi- I found you through Family Approve’s weekend hop and am a new follower. I love driving, but learning how to maneuver in South Africa has been hard! I love painting my toe nails and have even learned how to decorate them. I hope you have time to follow my blog at withoutcomplexities.blogspot.com

    Have a great weekend!

    I’m trying to think of what’s therapeutic for me??? Depends on what day it is. Sometimes just hanging out in the house not having anything I have to do other times I love to have outings with my husband and my daughter. Just hanging out . I love that!

    OH–when I drive the 1 1/2 hours to NJ from NY to work 3 days a week I almost always think of the Jetsons—wouldn’t it be nice to just take off in your own private air car!!

    Hope that you are painting them a funky color to brighten your day. Writing makes me happy but I have to fight for the time to do it. I am a new follower.

    Funky is the only way to go with my nails 😀 .

    I love hanging out with the kids too but it’s hard for me to not be doing something. I’m hyper that way.

    Great thought, I love how the Jetsons can just hop off from their living room right into their car 😆 .

    That’s an exciting week… and not in a good way! Driving can definitely be hazardous to your health. I almost always feel my blood pressure going up when I’m on the road. Found you thru the Surfin’ Saturdays blog hop- I’m your newest follower. 🙂

    Glad you didn’t get in a car wreck with that oh so friendly person…they probably would have been even less friendly! :/

    Reading books is therapeutic to me…I have to limit how often I read though because I get sucked in and get nothing else done 🙂
