This is what my baby looks like
No one realized that it might actually snow on the shoreline because it was so warm. Wrong! We got about two inches, then it made everything nice and icy this morning. I had to be at the hospital for 8am so I was up early this morning. Icy cement steps needed salt. The street looked good. It had been plowed so I thought nothing of it. We had two new front tires on the Jeep. Hmmm. I applied brakes, started to slide, and fish tailed a bit till I righted myself. This bitch needs four new tires. Front AND back. I am leary of the four wheel drive. I know you are only supposed to use it in wet/snowy weather. I have never used it before and I do not want to break my baby. Or fuck something up. Or crash into somebody. If any of you are really familiar with four wheel drive, soothe my soul.

  I had my ultrasound and it was not bad at all. I did not think it was going to be. It would have been if I went last week. I probably would have puked. She was checking my liver, pancreas, kidneys, gallbladder, and spleen. Those films will be read and the results will be sent to the Gastro. I am assuming I will have to wait a week to get any word back about them also. *smirk* Then I went and had the blood work done that he wanted. Eight Vials of blood! One vein on left arm said No. So She had to poke the other arm.
 I did some banking, paid the cable bill, and I am home drinking my coffee. I am now in save money mode. It took a couple weeks of me not doing what I am supposed to do but I am getting  there. Why go to Dunkin Donuts when you have 6 containers of coffee in your cabinet (from can can sale) and you are on your way home anyway? I saved $4. Because I would have had to get one for Fred. Now I am deciding what to make for dinner and I want to de-clutter something. I just do not know what. Maybe this cabinet behind me full of miniature stuff and Chelsea`s art crap. I am going to have to wait till she leaves though. She will protest if I toss anything. Pics she has done, those I will not toss. But stuff that is definitely garbage, that will go.
  Clutter makes me a little nuts. And I have people in this house that do not give a shit about it. Once I clean it up, it will get cluttered up again, just you wait.

So that is it for today. Another test down, who knows what is in my future.


  1. Love your baby! What kind is it? Liberty? We have an 96 Grand Cherokee... Our is 4 wheel drive all the time. Not real sure what it is like in snow and ice.. I only remember driving once in the snow. It wasn't horrible. Glad you were able to get yourself righted on the ice and not slide into anything. I like how you said you hit the brakes and slid. let OFF the brakes and righted yourself ...I can't believe the people around here who think with snow and ice you should stay on the brake.... :) Hope the ultrasound figures out whats wrong. I also hope you don't have to wait a week for results... :) (((hugs)))

  2. It is a Liberty Sport. I know I am supposed to let off on the brake but this situation is different. The bottom of this road/hill empties out onto a very busy four way stop. If I let off the brake, I would have hit somebody. But yes, I righted myself. You have to remember to turn your wheel in the direction of the skid.
    We will get two more tires and then next time is REALLY snows, Fred will take me out to practice the 4 wheel drive.
