Ever feel lost in a haze?

It seems as though a haze is trying to settle around here. Normally the thought of summer lifts the winter blues but instead I am left with the feeling of where the heck is that chirpy summer mood? Granted so much has happend in the last few months that just encourage the haze to try to linger.

I recently decided to find a new home for my birds of 6yrs. Within a week of putting up a flyer at a vets office I had a call inquiring about them and 3 days later we were saying goodbye. As much as I know that it's so right for them it's so hard to say goodbye to something that you still care for.

I also am stuck dealing with my Trailer vs Van problem. Oh Vey if I only were better at backing out while stressed... LOL.

Lastly I just really want to lose weight but find it so much harder than it use to be...gotta love aging. I am gonna give the ole walking/jogging of the pounds wish me luck. My short term goal is about 15 pounds before August. Long term 25-30 by next April 21st. I have to look good in that dress as a Matron of Honor for my sister Em's wedding.
In general life is great and so is my family. It just that time when you know change is about to happen and we try so hard to fight change even though we know that it only betters us. Thank goodness for my faith in that fact that He will make it only what I can handle. One step and one prayer at a time.

Well they say bad things happen in 3's well my did today all between the
hours of 8:30am and 12:00pm.

I was getting ready for MoP's and went to move a bowl and spilled water all over things on the counter including print outs and other things of importance.

So because of having to do more print outs I was running behind. I went flying out of the garage totally forgeting the pop-up trailer in the drive way. I smack right into and sent the thing flying into the house and then towards the road. It busted some siding and banged up the van pretty good.

So if that wasn't enough on the way home from MoP's I saw the bus that drops off the neighbor kid pulling to it's spot but the yellow lights were on so I threw on my turn signal to let her know I was turning right next to her. Well just as I get to the front of the bus she decides to turn on the red lights umm a little late lady I was already assuming it was safe to go sinc ewe got there at the same time and you were still doing yellow. I think no big deal neighbor lives across the street where she is letting out she must have decided it was all ok. I continue to pull into my driveway and she honks at me. I am a bit confiussed at this point so I slow down and start to have the garage door open it's not until I'm pulling into the garage that she backs up to most likely write down my lisence plate so I know that proves we were there at the same time. So bring it on lady.

So as you can see I had a horrible no good day...

Ok so things got a tid bit better. One of my neighbors does the same route for morning and afternoon. The lady that might have turned me in only does the mid day kindy run. So I was talking to her and she said that if I called and apologized and just gave my story and say I may have messed up she said that things should be ok then. There isn't all that much that can be done by the bus driver because the cop will call and get my story too and it will be my word aggainst her. She also said that there is only about a 1 hance that I will end up with a ticket.

UPDATE:Well I called the bus garage and appologized which in alot of ways alone made me feel tons better. That was about 7am. Just a few mins ago neighbor (Valerie) the other bus driver for this route told me some good news. She heard over the radio after I called from the Boss to the lady who was drving the bus that I called to apologize so she said she guessed she let it go and not turn me in. Valerie then talked to her after their routes were done and told her how upset and bad I felt and then the bus lady felt really bad and agreed it was best not to turn me in because mistakes happen.
