Rims, Paints, Breasts, and Encores

To say I have been busy for the last month and a half would be the understatement of the year. So I am happy to report that I have absolutely nothing planned for the weekend. This is of course completely planned. I need a day off to figure out why it is I never seem to have a day off. And when I say I have nothing planned for the weekend, what I really mean to say is I have a hundred things to pack into Saturday. Specifically, I am spending the day with my car. It has been close to a year since the last time I spent quality time with my car. So this weekend I'm doing what needs to be done. Cleaning it out. Figuring out what on earth is in that box in the trunk. Fixing the dent. (Yes, finally, after 8 months, I am going to finally fix the dent.) Replace the side mirror. And most importantly, I'm getting new rims. I don't think most of the blog readers have ever seen my beautiful blue rims. They came with the car, and they are absolutely hideous. I'm going to ebay them. There has to be some freak show out there that wants a complete set of antique blue hubcaps, right? In the meantime, I'm going to put normal people rims on the car. I'm tired of all the pointing and laughing. (Oh come on, you know you have laughed at my rims too!)
And then, after the bonding time with Lucybel (the car's name), is over, I am finally going to fix the ceiling in my living room. And, if somehow I still have time after I take a nap and complete all those projects, I'm going to paint my bedroom. It just has to be done. I have to live here for another 8 months at least, so I should finally make my bedroom into some place I actually want to sleep.
Oh, and the other thing I am doing on my completely unplanned Saturday- walking. I've decided to sign up for Avon Walk for Breast Cancer as a tribute to my grandmother. (She doesn't know this yet. So cousins, keep mouths shut!) The big walk in DC is April 29-30 and is 26.2 miles, with an optional extra 13.1 miles. I intend to go the whole way. Of course, do keep in mind I'll be hitting each of you up to sponsor me in the near future. I am committed to raising $1800 minimum. And if you want to join my team, I could use some walking buddies. You don't have to walk the full distance. No one is obligated to do so. You just walk what you are comfortable with. So friends, prepare your wallets. I'm walking!
And just for the record, I'm not turning 31. I'm just having a 30th Encore. And we all know, you don't celebrate encores.
