another message from heaven. or hell.

tonight on the way to work i saw a deer get hit by a car. it was moving after the car hit it and i narrowly avoided hitting it myself. needless to say, i was immediately freaking out. i didn't stop, and i do regret that. when i looked in the rearview mirror, there were no cars behind me, so there were no headlights by which to see if the deer was still in the road. i immediately called the authorities to have them come to the scene, but i proceeded to go to work. i am not sure what else i could have done but i will say that as non-religious as i am it is occurences like this that make me immediately think of prayer. i was/am very upset. i was also very upset that the car in front of me that obviously hit/grazed the deer kept right on going. but what can i say... i didn't stop to try to help the deer either. it was just all awful.

prior to that event i had been in a really good mood, but it's hard (for me) to ignore something like that. particularly in light of the messages i seem to be getting about cars lately. i really think i'm being told to stop driving, but i can't stop driving. it's just nigh unto impossible. public transportation doesn't go to the places i need to go.

as i said, prior to and apart from that, i was in a good mood. and that is despite the sad news that we had our lowest book club meeting attendance ever. i mean, normally that would ruin my whole week, but in this case i just understand that everyone has been busy and this month's choice was kind of intimidating or off-putting. i ended up having a good time talking to traceracer and mandy anyways. i feel confident that people will come to the book club holiday shindig, like last year, and that will encourage a renewed enthusiasm.

even before book club, i was feeling good because i made myself dinner. i made myself dinner. i'm amazed. i had scrambled eggs with cheese and an english muffin. not the most healthy dinner, i know, but still. i didn't go to taco bell. heh... instead i had john get me some taco bell once i got to work. lame. i currently have a very long to-do list of which almost nothing is getting done. it goes a little like this:

- make key/mail key copies
- get rid of tv/tv stand
- mail check to mom and dad
- setup online banking
- junk to goodwill
- sportfit
- get car stereo (i bet this will get done friday since it's a "fun" to-do)
- pay parking ticket
- get sewing machine from jody's/get sewing machine fixed/sew curtains
- put together filing cabinet
- get mailing addresses of people
- change addresses with various institutions
- pay bills
