7 Quick Takes # 15


Today was completely busy with errands, phone calls and things that I have been putting off for weeks now. I managed to get it all done though except for a trip to the US Cellular corporate store which I plan to do tomorrow because it's over an hour from my house and I didn't feel like doing much of anything else today.

I went, this evening, to spend a few hours with my sister. I don't get to see her much because we live so far apart and have insane work schedules so it was nice to be able to spend some time with her.

Bojangles is, hands down, my favorite of the take out chicken places. I picked some up to have for supper tonight since Chris was working and I got enough for there to be leftovers for tomorrow. As much as I love their chicken, I simply adore their biscuits and wish I could find a suitable recipe.

I intend to not spend much time on the internet tomorrow because the news is overwhelming and in some ways, depressing. I think everyone should unplug on occasion and I am taking my own advice and doing just that.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner is the book I just finished reading. It was so good that I read it in the course of two and a half hours. I have The Scorch Trials to read next and then I can't find Book 3 in the trilogy and this is bothering me. I may order it on my kindle instead of trying to find a paper copy of it.

Chris is working on my truck on Sunday. I took it to get an oil change and inspection today and the guy gives me a list of things that need to be fixed on it which of course they can do for the small price of an extra $400 or so dollars. Everything on the list is stuff Chris can do so we bought the parts and he's doing that on Sunday. I am most grateful that he knows how to do these things and is willing to give up his Sunday afternoon to do it for me so I don't have to pay someone else to do it.

I really need to get into a better sleep schedule. I don't go to bed until almost 2 every morning and then by the time I finally fall asleep it's almost 4. I spend most of time in a state of exhaustion and it's getting to the point of sheer ridiculousness.

It's been awhile since I have done one of these although my offline gratitude practice remains on point. In no particular order, here ar...
