Last night, Richard and I also made the decision to drop $2100 on a repair for my car--the rear main seal is leaking, which happens with age but is not a "beginning of the end" type of repair--so I also called the dealership to let the service department know our decision. Although we try to make responsible adult decisions and set aside money each month for emergencies, I always get stressed out when something unexpected happens. Even after I confirmed the decision with the dealership, I found myself worrying about the situation. That was a bit of a damper on an otherwise good day.
I had to leave the lakes after a few minutes because I was scheduled to volunteer at the Diaper Bank from 9:00-1:00. We put up some additional shelving, which I tested by standing on the middle shelf to position the top shelves. The units are rated for 800 pounds, which is more than I weigh, but we are confident that we did a solid enough job to store cases and packages of diapers.

After I ate, I was some combination of tired, sad, and in a food coma, so I took a little nap and met Ellen for a walk at 3:00 pm. The weather this afternoon was incredible--sunny and in the 60's--and the combination of sunshine and good company helped put me in a better mood. I made it out to exercise twice today, as I joined Richard and Scooter on a Family Dog Walk.
I'm optimistic that tomorrow will be more productive than today was in the arena of getting things done for school, but I am glad I was able to take care of some non-academic business today. Tomorrow also holds slow cooker meal #8 of 100!
Something that made today great: Planning a reunion trip with some of my best friends!
Time I woke up: 7:32 am
