I Can't Quit Crying

What would I do without TIVO? I have certain shows that I record because I don't have the time to watch them live or I'm at work. This all started last night...I clicked on list to see what there was to watch. There were two Oprah shows to choose from and I saw that one of them was featuring YouTube. So, I selected that one. If any of you are Oprah fans and missed this show you really missed out. The show featured several people and even a skateboarding bulldog. I never laughed or cried so much in one hour.

I watched this video for the first time on Oprah. Am I being overly sensitive or what? Every time (and I've watched this 5 or 6 times over the last 24 hours) I watch this I burst into tears.

Mishap

Last Friday night, Ashley and I were driving to W.F. to meet Kevin at Circuit City and to eat dinner at Golden Corral. I was on I-44 in W.F. and had just begun a lane change when I hit something extremely hard with my passenger, front tire. My just reward was an immediate flat tire and I proceeded to pull over to the shoulder of the highway. I got out to inspect the damage. My tire had a hole in the sidewall the size of a dime and a good size gash in the rim. So, not only did I have a tire loss, but I also needed a new wheel. :(

I also noticed there was another vehicle about 50 feet in front of me with their flashers going and another vehicle a quarter of a mile in front of him with his flashers on as well. The occupants of both vehicles were walking towards me.
At this time a police car had stopped in the lane where the mishap had taken place and picked up the object off the road. My vehicle including the other two cars had run over a truck ramp. None of us had seen anything in the road. The other vehicles had sustained more damage than mine. They lost both front wheels and tires. I'm surprised there weren't more vehicles pulled over the side of the road with flats, because there was quite a bit of traffic.

But wait, there's more!

About two weeks ago I had purchased two, new front tires with road hazard insurance and found out my tire would be replaced free of charge. I'm thanking myself now for having the insight to purchase insurance that I normally wouldn't buy. At the time I had my flat I didn't even know that I had purchased the additional insurance. I found that out the next day when I called Discount Tires. The only thing left to do was to locate a used wheel, because I wasn't about to purchase a new one from Patterson's Auto Center at the tune of $267.00! Discount Tire located one in Dallas for $160.00.

Here it is Wednesday and I'm on my way to have my tire and wheel changed. Hopefully, I don't have another mishap like this anytime soon. There in nothing worse then having a flat tire on a busy highway at night. Not to mention having a small spare tire to boot.

New Business

Last night, I was at work reading the local newpaper. In the business section I was happy to see a new restaurant is being built. It is called Logan's Roadhouse. I was just wondering if anyone in the family has dined at one before and is it any good. I did look up their current locations and found two in the Houston area. One is located on South Hwy. 6 and the other on N.W. Freeway. Any information on this eatery would be appreciated. I also noted they appear to be similiar to the Texas Roadhouses because of the free peanuts and the shells that can be tossed on the wooden floors.

Gallerita Weekend

I was a participant in the second weekend of the Gallerita. I managed to come away with some nice t-shirts, a couple of sweatshirts, and a nice pair of slip on shoes. I would like to give Rita a big thank you for the invite. I also didn't know that Elizabeth and Kayleigh were going to come up on Saturday. Definitely an added bonus to my weekend, since I hadn't met Kayleigh. I also took lots of pictures which you can view here. Just be sure you click on the Gallerita photo album. I had to do some editing in the other album that is also labeled as newest (which it isn't). I also included either four or five pictures of the outside of Rita's new house for those of you who haven't had the chance to see it.

Kneading Fingers 2000

First off, I would like to wish everyone who is a father...Happy Father's Day!

Kevin's Father Day gift from me was to spend $50.00 any way he wished at J.C. Penney's. Afterwards we were walking through Sikes Senter browsing other stores when I ran across the Kneading Fingers 2000. This lady from Lawton, Ok had a display of ten chairs set up for demonstration. I'm an absolute nut when it comes to feel good massagers. As soon as I sat down and felt it kneading the back of my neck, I knew right then I was going to buy one and buy one I did at the tune of $199.95 + tax. For about the last 5 years or so I've had problems with my sciatic nerve and some lower back soreness. I'm certaintly hoping this will help alleviate some of the pain I've been going through of late.

If anyone reading this has one of these massagers or has experienced one in the past I would be interested in hearing how you liked or didn't like it.
