So what would I change if I could? I definitely would have a gear-shifter on the steering column. I would have only one user account in the system with the ability to delete the "Guest" account. I would change the shape of the side-view mirrors. But the keyless stuff and the engine dying at stops, none of that really bothers me as much as I thought it would when I first started driving it. The computer system has frozen on me a few times already, but I know enough about computers to get it going again. But I would definitely like it to be a little more consistent. Maybe it will work better when I stop asking it to do more than it can handle. And maybe a new smartphone (NOOO!!) would be helpful. I wonder how it works with an iPhone vs. Android... I, of course, am an Android person. To be specific, I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S6, AT&T. It will be VERY interesting to see what sorts of technical problems show up as the car ages. So I guess that's my review for now. New stuff is fun, but I miss just being able to get in and drive.

Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving, and I'm supposed to be off work. Oh, I'm at home, but I just got a call from the office asking for my help. I could try to summon the Spirit of Thanksgiving and be thankful to be needed and wanted, but I am not very good at this holiday. For every thing that there is to be thankful for, I can find 5 more to complain about. I guess that means I'm only 20% thankful. Food...I have plenty of that, but I also have been given too much of it. I have plenty of clothes, but I also have an overabundance of those. I have more weight, more stress, less room... But moving on. It's time for Christmas now. And that one's not much better as far as holidays go. I suppose this time of year is hard for everyone. I don't know why God gives us cold, short, dark days. He could make everything work without the annual death. Perhaps it's part of our punishment. Was there no Winter before the Fall (of man)? Winter before Fall...ha, I made a funny! I guess Winter always comes after the Fall. Wow, that's deep...

And today is Rodeo Day in Saint Jo, Texas!! I will be wearing my cowboy hat, even though the most Western thing that I do is get on my horse for about 10 minutes and ride around the arena a couple of times. Most of my day will be spent running back and forth putting out toilet paper and making sure our workers have everything that they need.

My world is kinda funny. Of course in the romance department, there is none. But I have been asked for a phone number by a guy recently...oh, not for my number, he was wanting another gal's number. Which is funny, because just like in the books, she also has two kids... Maybe I need to warn them about making sure the kids are outta the way when they back up their vehicles... But I digress. No, my life is currently filled with Saint Jo Rodeo preparations. Only 9 days until the show! I'm a little less nervous about most of it this year since this is my 2nd presidential undertaking, but I am a little more worried about the finances this year. I was not paying attention to that stuff last year. But I know it will be fun, and I'm looking forward to it, so that's a good thing. I wish that the rodeo was the end of the stresses and responsibilities, but the three weekends after our rodeo will be filled with Forestburg then Denton then our August playday. After that we'll have to be getting ready for our chili cookoff in September, and by then the Republican Women's club will be started back up again, so I'll have that to deal with. I just watched a video talking about how God puts people in leadership positions. It was talking about government, but I thought of myself and my presidential positions. Well, if God put me there, then I guess that's how it's supposed to be. Most of the time it feels like some kind of crazy joke that I'd be intentionally put in charge of anything. Makes me want to roll my eyes just like I'm looking at some silly romance novel...LOL ;)
