What Hand Do You Drive With Random Thought #9

Do you ever have a random thought that your mind latches onto and will not let go? It’s the tiniest thing and meaningless but for whatever reason your mind decides it is as important as the the $100 bill in your pocket. It keeps coming back to it scared your going to lose it or something.

That is what my mind has done this past week. Last week while driving I reach to get something and was driving with my right hand. It felt very awkward and was hard to drive and do what I was trying to do with my left hand.

At that time I thought hum that is odd, I am right handed but drive with my left and it is hard to drive with my right. I wondered why that was and I came to the conclusion that it was just the natural way I had trained myself since I am right handed and use it to do things. If I wanted to do something like grab my drink I would use my right hand leaving the left on the wheel and have just gotten use to it that way. I wondered if it was just me or if others were  the same.

I then went on about the rest of my day not giving it another thought, so I thought. But now since then my brain hasn’t let it go. I think it a dozen times while I am driving. It don’t matter if I am going to the store two blocks up the road or 20 miles to work. It comes up and I think about it over and over again until i get were I am going. Sometimes even while I am where I am going for a bit until I get busy with something else.

How crazy is that? Why is my brain doing this to me over something so meaningless?

So here we go since it is there and I am telling you about it what say you all?

Are you right handed or left handed?

What hand do you drive with?

 

  1. Right handed drive with the right
  2. Right handed drive with the left
  3. Left handed drive with the left
  4. left handed drive with the right

I know we all should be driving with both hands on the wheel but lets be honest we know that we all don’t drive with both hands on the wheel all the time so give us your answer. I find myself driving with both hands more now that I have this new car but I think because it don’t have arm rest like my truck did. I think the arm rest is also part of the reason I drive left handed. But I can remember driving left handed way back when I first started driving thinking about it more even when I didn’t have things to reach for or do. I drove left handed. I remember my aunt talking about how I held the wheel and drove and how awkward it was to her. I held the little part inside the wheel not the wheel its self. I don’t know I drive more like that now in my smaller car as well. But I had a little truck when I first started driving. handled a lot like my car. That is probably why. Okay enough I am rambling now it is random not rambling thought.

Tell us in the comments are you 1, 2, 3 or 4 my weird mind wants to know. Maybe it will drop it and let this thought go once it finds out.

Wow Post 2

The other night at work the guy who I was talking to about tires started talking to me.

He asked me so what’s your nitch?

Wasn’t sure what he was asking we had all been talking about different things. I asked what he meant or was talking about?

He says what job or jobs have you done you like best or doing?

I said oh Bail Bonds and Repo’s

He says oh so you done collections.

I said no repo’s.

Yeah you called people and did collections when they were behind on their car payments. Tried to collect payment.

No I did repo’s, I went out put the key in the car and drove it away because the collections people got no where with them and they didn’t pay.

Oh, oh, you actually went out and picked up the car or took it?

Yes

Looks at me funny and stumbles for words and shakes his head. Goes back to work. In a few minutes, you really liked doing that?

Yep

goes back to work

Sits at my desk and just laughs. Thinks wow really how do you get collections from rep’s when you been told not collections already.

Funny when you leave them speechless and your not even trying.

Birthday Weekend

So this was the weekend of March 2, and 3rd. I started this then didn’t get to finish. I have been so busy Its not even funny.

 

This weekend was the weekend my oldest got her birthday present she has been waiting for. If you remember her birthday is January 30th. She got concert tickets for this past weekend.

The first one was Friday night she has half days that day I let her stay home. We cleaned the truck out, packed the other kids clothes and got ourselves ready. Once the other kids got home we packed them up and took them to my bff’s house. Then we headed out. We had a 100 mile drive ahead of use and got a late start so we hit rush hour traffic.

We got there about an hour before the concert started. We went to the bathroom walked around a little then went in and found our seats. We were a little worried because they were up in the bleachers. But when we went in the other seats were folding chairs on the floor. We were glad we had the ones we did. We could see the stage and the people on it really good.

The show was pretty good, I liked the opening act better than the other. We seen Delyn Scott and Justin Moore. Justin Moore was really good, I would go see him again.

We had talked about sleeping in the truck because we didn’t figure there would be motels. That night we were so cold watching the concert because it was outside. We thought about getting a room but there were none close and they were $100 and up. We decided just to come home sleep, get some warmer clothes and change my shoes. I wore boots but they had a heel and killed my feet with all the walking we did.

We started home and once I got on the highway it was horrible. I could not see the road, i didn’t know what way it curved where it was and the sides of the bridges blinded in with the rest of it. The lines weren’t marked or were wore off, while other areas just had new asfault down. I was so sick, sore and tight by the time we made it home. I just wanted to cry thinking about having to go back and drive home again.

Once I got to lay down I started looking for someone who may want to go with us that could drive back Saturday night when we were done. I couldn’t find anyone. I finally messaged starfish and ask if he was up. He was, It was close to 2 am i didn’t think he would be. I asked if he had to work the next day and he said yes. I said oh okay. He asked why, what was wrong. I told him what happen what I was looking for and said I was going to ask if he wanted to go with us and drive home the that night. He said he didn’t know what time he would be off sometimes at noon but then sometimes 5. I told him if he wanted to go let me know when he got to work if he thought he would be off early and could go he said okay.

I never heard from him the next day, I figured he wasn’t getting off until late or just didn’t want to go. But my friend messaged me the next morning early and said she closed her shop and had bought tickets and wanted to go and ride with us. I asked her if she could drive home she said she could. We got ready and picked her up and went. She decided to drive over so she had the feel of the truck she drives a small car and hadn’t driven a truck in a while and with mine’s quirks we figured it be a good idea. I messaged Starfish and told him we were headed out. I guess he thought I meant was he getting off soon because it was close to noon, he said he was still working. I said okay we found someone to go and drive we are on our way over. He said okay and it was left at that.

Later when I got home and picked the kids up the other guy at the shop lives with my friends family the bosses family and he asked why I went when I couldn’t see to drive home the night before. I said because I had someone to drive us home. He said him and starfish was going to get one of them light bars and put on my truck and point it at the grown so I could see to drive. I thought it was odd that he said they were talking bout it. My friend said yeah starfish something I said oh. We were on our way out it was super late so I didn’t say anything. I got home and messaged my friend and ask her what was said and why at at the shop about it and me talking to starfish? She said he asked her at the shop that day if I called or messaged her the night before that I messaged him having a panic attack about not being able to see and things but never said that I asked him to go with us to drive and that was why I messaged him to start with and told him. She said he wasn’t being mean just talking about how to help out and get it fixed for me. I said I just wondered how him and the other guy came to be talking about it how he knew we had talked about it or what.

Over all it was a good weekend my oldest was very happy with the shows and she got to get her picture taken with Cowboy Troy from Big and Rich. It was a stressful weekend for me with everything going on and money wise but I am happy she had a good time and we were able to do it. I would like to take the kids next year but it is something that we could walk in and walk out spending $300 or $400 or more easy with all the food, games, vendors, rides, shows, and everything else they offer.

Excited she got a t shirt from the Big and Rich show and it was a baseball type shirt. She said they had random numbers on the back, the lady just gave her one in her size and when she got it, hers had the number 14 on the back. We went for her 14 th birthday. I am glad it is over and will plan better next time around for sure.

 

Have to Brag

I have to brag on my older two for just a minute, they got their report cards Friday and they both made honor roll. I am not sure if I said this in another post or not but wanted to make sure I put it out there. I am very proud of them both. I had no doubt my oldest would get it because all she does is school work. She has 43 books out of 60 that she needs done for the year when she got out for winter break in December. She in the last week of school that they have been back has already finished all but the check ups and self test for 4 more. She can work past the self test at home but has to let the teacher check the work and then do the self test at school. Once the work is checked and good and she passes the self test with a high enough score then she can take the test for the over all book. If she gets high enough on that then she moves on to the next book. so by the end of the week she should have all new books in each subject. She loves that she can work at her own pace and finish as quick as she wants to.

My Big Boy on the other hand does not push himself as she does and slides by with getting just enough done. The grades are there he does great work it is just getting enough done in the 9 weeks to make honor roll. last 9 weeks he didn’t do it. I told him this 9 there was no reason not to that I expected it. It isn’t a lot of work and he is more than capable of doing it without pushing himself like my oldest. If he just sets his goals and does his work he should be able to get it done. I think he is already well on his way to have honor roll this 9 weeks as well. They both brought new books home over winter break to work on. I told him he should bring them home and at the end of break work on them so to get ahead if he didn’t want to have to work so hard in class. He really isn’t but he feels like it sometimes. He didn’t think he made honor roll last 9 weeks so when he got his report card Friday he was thrilled. The fact that he is ahead some and so thrilled about making it last 9 weeks makes him want to push and get it next time too. I see him working harder and he has started bring his work home to work on it and make corrections if he needs to so he can finish the books faster. He will tell me I brought my books home today I have to correct this and that and then I can test out. I have so many books done and I think I will get new ones by such and such time. I just hope this excitement stays with him because he is a little behind and he could be caught up soon if he keeps it up.

I am not sure where my Little Guy is as he did not bring home a report card. I am going to have to ask his teacher tomorrow where his is. Maybe I was supposed to pick it up at conference but she never said we needed one or gave us a day or time she was having them. I see her every day and we talk about how he is doing and things so I didn’t think we needed one. He had all good marks last time as well so I am not really worried about it.
