Feeling Overwhelmed

My primary phone ran out of minutes last night and I discovered that my credit cards were not in my wallet. Luckily I found them in the car today. So my phone works again. I'm glad I have a back up phone.

I did my first of the month shopping today and spent way too much money. I haven't been eating enough vegetables, and I've been eating way too many carbs. My usual snack food is fruit (oranges in winter, other fruits as they come in season) I tried to stock up on vegetables I can snack on: cucumbers, sweet peas, celery. I picked up some shredded veggies that Wegmans is selling as veggie spaghetti. The most expensive thing I bought was a jar of almonds. They are recommended by my dietitian.

I dropped my iPod at Wegmans. Luckily for me someone found it and turned it in. I will have to pick it up tomorrow.

I meant to make copies of my food journal, but I forgot to take the masters down to the car I will have to do it tomorrow. I usually just print it out at home but I'm out of black ink so I have to wait till the 3rd (when my check drops) so I can order more ink. Then I have to wait for the ink to arrive. The photocopies are better because they don't run as easily when they get wet.

I have two appointments in Sayre tomorrow with the exercise guy and the psyche guy. I'm a bit nervous because I haven't done any exercise, and my diet has not been good.

The rental car is nice, it's a Hyundai Sonata, but it's a little cramped. It has some visibility problems. I can't see cars coming from the right when I'm trying to pull out of my driveway because of the placement of the windows and supports. And the side doors are bit high. I can't reach my mailbox when I roll down the windows. I spent several minutes trying to figure out the lights. It's hard to tell what outside lights are on when you are in the car. It's a black car and I was driving without lights for a while on the highway because I couldn't figure out how to turn them on. I think I have it figured out now. It does have a USB port for my iPod, a CD player, and Sirius Satellite Radio.

My old Buick Park Avenue was much more roomy inside. And it turned on the headlights when it got dark. I never had to turn the lights on or off, it did it itself. The Park Avenue also had proximity sensors for backing up, and heated seats. Well, it had a lot of luxury extras. I can't expect to be that lucky all the time. And Buicks have a problem with their electrical systems. The electric is the first thing to go. The interior lights shorted out and the electric windows had started having problems. The more gadgets a car has the more things can go wrong.

Anyway. I feel better for writing down all the little things that were wearing on me today. Nothing major. No problem that can't be overcome with a little time and effort. Just a bunch of little things that were piling up on me. When I get my check I can do laundry and I will feel better.

It is March now. Spring is getting closer. I can feel it even if it was still snowing today.


Wow. That's a lot to deal with all at once. I hope things look up for you and get easier as time progresses.
Thank you for your support. I'm sure things will look up soon.

I don't like to complain but if I write it down I don't have to carry it in my head anymore.
Hugs! Dropping and forgetting things is probably due to stress and anxiety after the accident. I hope everything is resolved soon.
I'm really beginning to worry about the forgetting things. I've forgotten a lot of things lately and I think I'm having more trouble than I used to remembering words. But the reason I'm a list maker is that I have always had a bad memory.

I'll talk to the Psych about it tomorrow.
I would like to check out your rental car. I drive a Hyundai Sonata, so I might be able to help you out. My car, for instance, automatically turns on the lights -- when the switch is set in the right setting.
Well, Maybe Friday. Although my mom really wants to get me a new car this week, so maybe not.
