Today's normal routine was knocked out of whack from the getgo by having to get the car fixed. It means that I had to put on real clothes this morning instead of just my throw-over-my-suit dress. That means I had to get my brain in gear right off the bat.

But, I also wore my new swimsuit which turned out perfectly. It looks fun but also fits like it was made for me. hahahahha. It is about the 20th suit I've made but it is the first one that was perfect from the start. I finally remembered to shorten the elastic around the legs. Doh. AND write down the new num on my 'swim suit measurement' post it note. I'm such a slow learner.

WHOA!!! I just saw on Twitter that the new police chief is the one I wanted! The interim chief was in the running, didn't make the final cut (much to the loud dismay of many besides me), one of the finalists dropped out and they added her back in and now she's clinched the job!! She threw out the first ball at a game a month or so ago and, turns out IRL, she is tiny. But she is mighty and I'm delighted for her and for Seattle.

Also I just learned on Twitter that the Republican convention is going to be in Charlotte. OMG. Have they lost their minds? I guess so. What a shit show. Why in the world would they let that happen? I have not been back in many years and so have no feel for the current landscape but really no city is ready for the Republicans in 2020 much less a smaller Southern city. I'm glad I will be on the other side of the country.

This loveseat is just not cutting it. It's not comfortable for me to sit on. I've got to stop sitting on it. Today. Ok, I just did. Yeah. But I need a longer term fix. I think LazyBoy has something that will meet all my requirements but damn there shit is expensive. I mean really really really expensive and, I think, the piece I want is not wide enough. I need to go to one of their stores. My back says soon. Maybe Thursday. It's a shame because other than its being so uncomfortable, there's a lot to like about this loveseat. But, it's gotta go.

The car, I'm afraid, is going to also cost a bundle. But, not having chilled air blowing is just not an option. So my brother doesn't inherit so much. He'll get by.

I dropped it off on the way home from the pool. John, the car guy, said it would take about a half day so I had them bring me home. I've really got no plans for the day and, as I sit here, I'm thinking I might even whip down to that LazyBoy place after the car gets ready. It's about a 20 minute drive but I could test the air conditioning...

But right now, I'm going to whip up a batch of breakfast burritos.
