Thurs. ...up at 4 am and on the road to the Cities where I went to a bankruptcy auction and bought all of our deck boards. I got 100 twelve foot deck floor boards for $100. That was a savings of $5.36 a board so I am happy. Driving home, I stopped at a gas station to get some fuel and a drink. I had a Patrol officer pull in and park behind me. I was done fueling when he pulled in behind me.
Mam, do you know why I pulled you over? Pardon? You did not pull me over. I am here fueling Officer. ???? Anyway, to make a long story short...he decided I needed a CDL to pull this rented trailer. The trailer tare weight is 14,000 pounds and my pickup is 5500 pounds. You need a CDL for a combined weight of 26,001 pounds and I am way below that He also gave me a ticket for not having a CDL license and no jakebrake in my pickup. This is one ticket I will be going back into the courtroom and fighting. He impounded the trailer and the rental shop is FURIOUS. I had to load the boards into my pickup box and continue home. I owned Semis and drove over the road for 15 years by myself. I owned a HotShot and sold it a few years ago. I do know CDL laws and requirements. He kept me there for three hours.
Thurs. up at 4 am and home at 2 am. In bed at 3 am
Friday...up at 6 am so I could go into my Moms and sisters and finish setting up everything for their rummage sale . I had to finish putting out all of my daughters things also. I opened the doors at 9 am but people were already showing up at 8. I was open until 7 pm and sold a lot of their items. It was a good day. Mom made me Supper and I got home at 8 pm. I spent the rest of the evening getting MY things together for the Sat. sale . I was in bed at midnight and up at 6 am.
Sat...rain! Back to bed for awhile as I could not do the rummage sale. There was no room for walking in the garage unless items could be set outside on the driveway. I did open at 11 am until 5 pm.
We will have another rummage sale next weekend.
Now on Sunday, time to move inventory from our basement to a new room in our shop. I have about 6000 frames to move, sort , do an inventory count on, and update for our laser business. Going to be a long day.
The scale is messing with me again. It is a new digital WW scale and I can step on it and get off and step on it again and there is a difference of anywhere from three ozs to three pounds! This scale will have to go back to Target if I can find my receipt.
I have not been logging my food this past four days but have made sure that I am making smart choices. I stayed away from fast food while on the road. I stopped and bought fruit, and Ensure to drink. My big meal was from Subway and a turkey, black forest ham sandwich with no dressings.
I am FEELING thinner, and stronger so ...even if the scale messes with me...I am thumbing my nose at it.
