We Didn't Take The Bait!

Whew! We got through the day without purchasing a new car! Don't think we weren't tempted, because we were, but reality won out. It really didn't make sense to indebt ourselves for 5 years and then perhaps not be able to do things like complete the bonus room upstairs, travel, etc. So we did the adult thing, returned the loaner and picked up our repaired as good as new, fully paid for Lexus. There might have been a time in our younger days that we might have fallen for the bait but we’re all grown up now and can now see the big picture. We’ve lalready done enough stimulating of the economy to last several more years.

Today was a good day. Treadmill and water fitness at the gym followed by lunch at Panera with my good friend, Carroll. Later in the day, Ted and I went to see the movie Julie & Julia. I just love Meryl Streep. She is a class act all the way. There was a man and woman standing behind us at the popcorn counter. The man mentioned that he was glad to see some men coming out to see the movie. I told him that I had heard that the movie was great for both men and women and that he’d probably like it. He didn’t look convinced. Guess who was laughing the loudest at some of the funniest parts of the movie? That’s right, Mr. “My wife made me come to this @!%! movie”.

I always thought Julia Child was a hoot. I still remember her slapping a chicken..still makes me laugh. Anyway, if you haven’t seen this movie, go see it. It says a lot about perseverance and the impact that loving relationships can have on people. Yes, I know it’s about food, but also about so much more.

Yoga, aromatherapy and spiritual reading will round out my evening and then to bed early tonight. I will be attending an all day conference in Charlotte tomorrow. More about that tomorrow.

Hope your day was a good one and if it wasn’t, you can start it all over tomorrow.
