Well, my Texas adventure has begun. To date I have applied for seven jobs with another two ready to go tomorrow. I also know of a job fair taking place on Saturday at a place I would love to work (can’t pass up benefits for part-time workers).
Yesterday, I had a chance to try a cherry limeade from Sonic (very good, next time I am getting a lime-limeade). Today for lunch I had my first Whataburger. While I enjoyed the toppings, Culvers makes a better burger. AND to my surprise and pure happiness, there is a Culvers here. (I thought there were not any in Texas, but I am glad to be wrong).
Let see…what else… Yesterday we did a little bit of painting, mostly primer. We were able to do one coat, but it probably needs a second and the ceiling has yet to be primed. After the priming, it is on to a lovely blue color.
Also, I had a chance to play a little bit of Wii tonight. I think I hurt my arm! 🙂 The wii fitness age put me at 53, I figure that means I NEED to play often to get in shape.
Finally, my car was having a little trouble on the freeways at the needed higher speeds. The steering wheel would shake and the car was not riding smooth at all. I figured part of the problem was wind, but the other part might be my wheels. (who knows what the weight of the trailer did to it). I took it in today and for very little money (yeah!) they rotated and balanced the wheels. No more shaking!
Thats about it so far.
Here are just a couple of photos from my trip. Most of it was during the night so the pictures did not really turn out.
Here’s a picture of my car at around 9:45 pm before we hit the road. I was waiting in downtown Wheaton for my brother to get a starbucks. We left so that we could beat the weather, snow was in the forecast.
