Change in Plans for Today

Today, in an hour, I will be taking my car to get fixed. I don't know how long it will take, but hopefully not long and this time it will be fixed. I do trust this shop. They have done good work before on the car. And they stand behind their work with guarantees and warranties on most of the parts they have already put on that car. However, my chiropractor's office called yesterday, and that appointment was canceled for this afternoon, so it looks like you will have me for a good portion of my day. Now aren't you the lucky ones? Since I need to leave soon, I think now would be a good time to get ready to go. I'm still in my bathrobe. Time to get dressed. Today is also my youngest son's birthday. He was born on a very important historical day - the anniversary of Paul Revere's midnight ride to warn about the British invasion and the beginning of the Revolutionary War for independence. That is how my day is working out. What are your plans for today? Thanks for reading. Picture is my son at my grandson's birthday party last week. That's also my daughter with her back to the camera.

Yes it is. Cloudy and rain expected. Just like the day he was born, almost - there were tornado warnings out the day he was born.

How nice it will be to see more of you. Are you having a birthday gathering for your son's birthday? I will be on here for a while, going to be visiting the store to pick up a few things, and writing. It's a beautiful day right now.

Yes, I'm here a lot more now that the book is finished. No, he doesn't want a party of any kind. He'll probably be going out tonight. It's a double birthday for him, his girlfriend's birthday is also today. So I'm sure they have some kind of plans. It is an excellent day for writing. I just might open a manuscript and work on it. I can't believe I haven't touched one in over 24 hours. My fingers are getting itchy. I hope you get a fair amount of writing done, and it flows well for you.

@just4him I know how you feel. If I am not working on writing I am thinking about it. It becomes an obsession. Hope your son and girlfriend have a great time on their bday.

@HazySue I called him last night to wish him a happy birthday and they didn't have any plans, which was surprising. Must be getting to that age when going out isn't exciting anymore. Though my daughter still makes the most of her birthday and she's older.

@fishtiger58 This was my dad's car, it is a 1999 and has been a good runner, but her time is up.

It's a must. The part that's going is no longer being made because the car is so old. So no choice. I started looking, but I will go with my son to get it accomplished. Older son, he's the mechanic in the family.

I'm finally back full time. I was gone a lot working on my book, now finished. I just need to get the next phase started - editing and revision - fleshing out the story and making it come alive in the minds of the reader. I'll be starting that next week. I'm letting it rest for the moment.

Cloudy and rainy here also so have the best day ahead that you can. Plans were to go further out but had to shop nearer as per usual.

It hasn't started raining yet, but it's supposed to before too long. I hope it holds off, but lately the weatherman has been right more than wrong.

Sounds like a good day--productive without too much on your plate. And when you get home, hopefully with healthy car, or knowledge that it WILL be healthy, you'll be able to respond to comments on this post and then "go to town" on MyLot.

Went out today with the boyfriend. We went to get the laptop we bought last week. And we went to my Social Security office to work on some papers. So far so good.
