    iPod. With playlists organized by style of dance. (dancegeekiness revealed) For me, not so much samba as cha cha, rhumba, salsa.

    Also a book on tape, which is wonderful for making the miles disappear. My first audible dot com download.

    And the xm radio. I need my distractions, b/c I'm bored to tears most of the time, and that's trouble.

    At the very least, glass of wine. I'd have had a good snort of Irish whiskey. Hope the cat is better!

    Spent yesterday thinking about my mother as it was her birthday - although she had passed away on Mother's Day 5 years ago. Sang her happy birthday in my heart (-:. Made a point of calling my out of state daughter and spending time talking to her - about nothing. Which was oh so nice. Went to chiropractor who has this new machine thing like a shoulder collar and it beat the crap of me like a bongo drum with rhythm. Although - as weird as it felt (new machine) my shoulders and back were thanking me for going to him! On the way out, he yelled, stop stretching your neck in Tango - for awhile and you won't have to come in! lol!

    I recommend satellite highly. Its Great American Songbook station has been the source of many a foxtrot -- I listen, write down the names of songs I like, go to iTunes, download, practice. Also hustle, salsa, cha cha: dance stuff is everywhere on xm, and no commercials!

    Tuesday...(I have to actually remember what day it is to remember what I did)

    Up at 7
    Music
    English
    English (I love my tuesdays)
    Then caught the bus to work. Bus was 15 minutes late and boss was not happy. I can't control public transport, and I ask him to drive a bus full of school kids down a busy road in after school traffic. The road has at least 5 schools on it.
    But yeah, then I worked for 5 hours and came home and slept.

    Yesterday, I: drove from Kearney, Nebraska to Sidney, NE, so Spouse could go to Cabela's (what is it with men and Cabela's? mine doesn't even hunt/fish/camp, but he's gotta go to Cabela's)
    Drove from Sidney down a back road to Sterling, CO, fighting the hurricane-force wind and enchanted by the tumbleweeds; haven't seen so many tumbleweeds in over 10 years, but they were tumblin' like mad yesterday
    Also enchanted by the contrast between irrigated/non-irrigated land; the border is guillotine-sharp, from green/lush to brown/dry instantly
    Drove from Sterling to Fort Morgan, CO
    Lunch at mom-and-pop diner; Spouse got the chicken fried steak of his dreams (ewww)
    Into motel (took 5 attempts to find one suitable)
    Carped about windblown grit and the unmistakable scent of eau de feedlot; meh, we're on the high plains, deal with it
    Did laundry
    dfed
    Cup of soup and half a sandwich ordered off the senior menu; would have appreciated it if the waiter had asked me if I were old enough for the senior menu, which I ain't, by a long shot (see if I tip HIM again)
    Read a bit
    Answered phone calls
    Nightcap: Jameson's, rocks
    and so to bed

    Just curious: where do you get the energy? I'd need to be on crack to do this much in a day.
