I know I'm earlier than usual with the Thankful post. However, I'm getting off the computer. I'm thankful for having my car towed to a shop this morning. Now, I wait for them to call me. My son said it most likely wouldn't be today. The guy is always super busy. I'm thankful for the ride I got to Walgreens this morning when I headed out for a little shopping. From there I went to Festival Foods. I didn't overspend, but I overbought. I had two bags instead of one. One I managed to get into my purse making it easier to carry home. Still, I'm exhausted from carrying it all home. I'll need to plan better next time unless I have my car by then. Then I won't need to walk to the store anymore. I'm thankful for getting the notifications finished twice today. I'm going to relax in the recliner and watch TV with the massage on. What are you thankful for today. Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me.

I'm thankful for this day, God has really comforted my heart. Last evening I was sad, today I'm enjoying life again. The thoughts can bring me down, when I dwell on painful circumstances. Jay is grocery shopping today, with his friend Dan.

Hope you get your car back soon. Can you get a trolley to carry the shopping? Wheels are a big help and much easier than carrying bags!

@Fleura I just ran into your comment and remembered that I am waiting for a trolley as you call it to come in my mail. I bought a grocery cart that has three wheels on the back- that makes it easier to pull it up steps.

@sallypup I was thinking of this sort of thing. I have one I used a lot when Big One was little and we had to get two buses each way to work/nursery. You can get all sorts of funky designs now.

@Fleura I opted for a plain, square wire basket on wheels. That way I can put a couple of good sized bags in if need be. I love the color there. Just love it. Like I said, there are stair climbing wheels on the back.

I hope you can get your car back soon. I have a cart on wheels to load my grocery when my husband cannot drive me there.

@just4him When we lived in Monte Carlo I always walked to the stores and I used the cart with the wheels all the time.

@LadyDuck It sounds like you lived close to the shops so you could do that.

@Courtlynn It took me a week and a half to get it towed from the YWCA parking lot. Then it sat at Tires Plus for a few days until I got paid and could move it again to my son's complex. I didn't have Tires Plus work on it. They wanted $356 plus labor for a starter. Their average cost is $75. I put a negative review in BBB on them. Then on Tuesday, I had the car towed to the shop where it's been sitting. The guy is super busy. He doesn't have room for another car in his lot. So, I wait. My son was going to have a friend put in a new starter, but he couldn't get hold of him. So, here I am a month later and still no car.

Hope you get your car back soon and be out and about without having to worry about walking or getting a ride. I'm thankful that our weather hasn't been cold enough to need the heat on and yet not warm enough to need the a/c. A few weeks of neither will definitely make my bill a little less.

I'm glad you don't need the heat on or the A/C. I hope you see enough days of that so your bill will look good. Thank you. It would be good if the only walking I do is on the trail.

@just4him I guess you're thankful that you can walk these days with your new knees. Even if it's inconvenient I bet you wouldn't have been able to do it last year.

@Marilynda1225 That's for sure. There are a lot of things I couldn't do last year. I'm very thankful for my new knees. I also keep pushing my limits.

Yes, I am. I'm doing my best to be patient. I want to call the shop and see if he's had a chance to look at it yet. I know he's busy. My son told me the car is out of his parking lot, so that's a step in the right direction.

I am thankful I got some good surveys on Prolific today, and miracle of miracles they paid quickly. There was another one I was working on..but I didn't understand the concepts Which they didn't explain very well or the rate of progression. It was super annoying and I didn't feel like figuring it out since I had just taken another one a few minutes earlier and wanted a break.

I hope your son's friend could fix your car so it won't be difficult to you to go to grocery. It's not easy. Did you walk in going to the grocery?
