January 12. Riding home from Dad's and Mom's house in Danny's car, I felt a sniffle and realized--bloody nose! It was a spectacular gusher, and I managed to get blood everywhere except not on my clothes!
January 13. I was missing Fernando, so took a selfie to text to him.
And then I made some popcorn, using a smaller bowl that I thought would work. It didn't.
January 17. We walked--yes, walked--to Chick-Fil-A for a free lunch!
January 21. Thomas' car had died this past week, so this Saturday, we decided to get it towed to Laurel BMW (yes, he bought a BMW!) so that he could get it repaired under warranty (his used car got a 60-day warranty!). I took a photo of me lounging on the stoop to our back yard patio. What a beautiful afternoon!
We ended up calling Westmont Towing, and got Charlie on the phone...
Charlie: I'm streaking toward you as we speak!
Me: (In my head) Is he naked??
Thomas: Hey, the flatbed tow truck is here!
Me: Is the driver naked?
We shared this back-and-forth with Charlie, who was extremely extroverted and friendly, showed Thomas around his car, and got everything set. When he asked if someone was going to accompany him in his truck to the dealership, Thomas jumped right on it, and into his truck. The two of them had a blast!
After we got everything taken care of at the dealership, we were walking back to the Suburban, which I drove (and Dad rode in), when my mobile phone rang.
I answered, and a voice: Hi, this is Charlie the Streaker!
What a riot!
January 24. I met sweet Sarah for breakfast at Honey Jam Cafe, and we spent the morning talking, drinking coffee, eating, drinking coffee, and talking. I was w-i-r-e-d the rest of the day!
January 27. I took a mobile phone photo of a scrapbook page of little Jake, whose birthday was today. Isn't he just the cutest, sweetest baby you ever saw?
January 28. I actually cooked! I made berry banana baked oatmeal for breakfast.
That was my January in photos. Nothing special, mostly without Fernando, just my ordinary life this month.
Back to life,
