Waiting at the freakin' car dealer to get my freakin' recalled air bags replaced.  I received a first recall notice a while back but it also said something like "don't call us because we don't have parts." I recently received a second recall notice and I made the appointment.  When I called they said it would take 30 minutes.  When I checked in, they said 60-90 minutes.  I am not well over 90 minutes and really not very happy about it at all!
UPDATE: 120 minutes. I hate you, Takata!

Sunny at 60 degrees already this morning! Heading up to 70 this afternoon. I'm heading back into the woods for a couple of hours. I would rather work a rainy day after April 1st than sit inside all day during a sunny day (like today!) Jaw is fine - a little sore, but barely noticeable. I need to remember how dangerous it can be running the brush mower. I've pinned myself between the mower and a tree while going in reverse more than once and it's not fun.

I watched a video yesterday that said ulcerative colitis - which is inflammation in the colon - can also cause inflammation and pain in hips and knees. I think my hips and knees are screwed on more than one issue. I've not been kind to them over the years. I will get into some restorative yoga later this spring. It does make things move better. Sometimes I feel like a tinman. If I could just get those joints oiled well, they would move so much better!

I am agreeably but not debilitatingly sore from last night's session.  I really hope that class continues to be available...  I need to find one more time option during the week.

Lunch plans today with my two former co-workers (Erica and Monica).

The owner of the condo my boyfriend and I rent called earlier this week and said a new stove/oven will be delivered today. One of the burners on the stove recently stopped working. He was going to give me an update on the delivery time, but I have not yet heard back from him.

Feeling like spring today! Grey and rainy but warmer temperatures! Work is stressing me so i kind of can't wait to be done with it. But I must press on. Though, reality check is that i still have an awesome job. i really can't complain but i am just in the space of 'i want to get stuff done, let's not go back on things we talked about last year!'

Got up to do my MMA speed....to find that Beachbody on demand site is down right now.  Hmmmm., while it isn't the same moves I could probably do Hammer Plyo to get my sweat on.  Opted for Insanity Sweat fest, wouldn't have to put stuff away. after.

Other than a spin bike that I'd like to knock out during lunch, not too much going on today. It looks as though this is turning into a soft training week.

Getting a new hot water heater tomorrow. I feel like I'm playing a game of "what will need to be replaced next?" with my house. I have literally replaced every major appliance since I moved in (fridge, dishwasher, washer, dryer, air conditioner, furnace, now hot water heater), re-done the yard including removal of 3 trees, resurfaced every counter top and tile surface, re-done more than half of the flooring, roof, deck, fence section, sunroom, porch, toilet, vanity, exterior paint, painted every wall, replaced every light fixture, replaced every plumbing fixture, replaced every window treatment... I'm at the end of my rope with the major house stuff. Please be done.
And apparently hot water heaters are not the $200-$300 everyone is telling me they are (maybe if you buy at Menard's and install yourself??? None of my friends are doing that though...). First estimate was $1,025, second was $900, third was $895 - then I called a guy my Dad said installed theirs for $600 many years ago [...]
