Well what a day. It actually started out pretty good. I took my son to an orientation for a place called Job Corp, they will help you get your GED and/or diploma and train you in up to 3 skills and PAY you while you do it. You can even live on site and they will feed you too. OK I am sold. LOL We had to park in the city of Albany on the street, meter parking of course. We found a spot close to where we had to go, and the meter still had 17 min left on it. Thank you Lord. We between the two of us found 4 more quarters to put in, that would buy us one hour and 17 min. We found out we were going to be there for 2 hours. I was a little worried. I found 2 more quarters in the bottom of my purse, so my son went and put those is, still 13 min short though. BUT we ended up getting out of there faster and we actually had 12 min left on the meter when we left.
Next we went to lunch. I haven't been out with just my youngest son in forever. We went to Olive Garden. We pulled in the parking lot and it was PACKED. Looks like everyone wants to go out to lunch on a Thursday afternoon. We only had about an hour before our next appointment so we decided if it was crowded or there was a wait we would just leave. A parking spot opened up just as I entered the parking lot and it was right in front, couldn't have been better if it was a handicapped space. We walked in and there were 10 people sitting, my guess was waiting for seating. We walked up to the greeter guy (what is that official name anyway) he asked us how many? 2 my son said. Just then a seater walked up with menus in his hand and the greeter guy said... "follow him" WOW no wait. The food was delicious, I never even ate my meal. I had some salad and a small piece of the chicken from my sons kebob. I brought my meal home I'll get two meals out of that for sure.
Next we stopped at the lawyers office to discuss options from Joe's car accident in January. He is 23 and walks like he is 63. It's not very good. That appointment went well and soon we were on our way back home.
Home I cleaned the kitchen, checked the mail and got dinner cooked so I could go to support group. I drove myself, another HUGE thing for me, I hate driving in Albany at night. This makes 2 weeks in a row that I did. I am determined to OVERCOME by limitations.
So on the way home I saw a license plate that stumped me...
It says..." GR8NEWFS " sorry it's blurry, pictures through the front windshield don't always work out too well. Anyway your contest mission today is to help me figure out what it's trying to say... I can't figure it out. LOL Post your idea in the comment section and receive an entry for Thursday in the contest. Post a comment even if you are confused like me, we can stick together, LOL
No knitting or reading today but I did do a lot of walking. I think bed time is in order now. Have an early day tomorrow and then Adam will be here.
Have a great sleep, sweet dreams.
