Hi, everyone, here I am! Parts Heaven is my little corner of hell. I’ve been sitting here for quite a while now in the captain’s truck, waiting for him to pick up a new used motor for the power seats in my car. We’re at a street full of junkyards and parts, an ugly, abandoned, lost part of South San Diego, actually Chula Vista. Huge holes in the streets, everything in disrepair, hand lettered signs, broken cars, definitely not on the touristy tours of America’s Finest City. This is the side that ConVis doesn’t want you to see, the smelly industrial working
areas. I came along for the ride because I thought it was going to be quick and we’d be driving home right by the Nordstrom’s in La Jolla and I’m all out of my Kiehl’s and reckoned we could do a little looksee around the store. I mean, while we’re there, we might as well carpe diem, right?? I’m thirsty, I have to go to the bathroom, and I’m stuck in the car while he walked to who-knows-where. He took his cell in the event of a shootout or something, (not inconceivable here).
I’m nearing critical mass on the bladder issue. We girls need to remember to not hold it in for fear of a UTI, and I’m a frequent, (you know what I mean). I memorized the locations of all the decent half-way clean public toilets on our main highway, Highway 5 South from Oceanside to the US-Mexico border. If I need to, I can stop at the Denny’s in Del Mar. That’s about 20 minutes or so from my house if there’s no traffic. Easy access, safe, fairly clean, and no hassles. The next stop south would be at the Visitor Information Center near Mission Bay. This one only seems safe during the day; it’s not well lit at night. How did I get on this subject? I wonder! Oh yeah, I need to go BAD. Here he comes, thank goodness! I’ll review the northbound public toilets another time.
Back home now. I was able to wait until Nordstrom’s, which has a very nice restroom. We were in a hurry to beat the commute traffic, so all we had time for was to stock up on the products I love from the Kiehl’s counter; the Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate with Vitamin C and Epidermal Re-Texturizing Microdermabrasion polishing cream. The captain uses the Ultimate Thickening Shampoo… for obvious reasons.
One of the many annoying things I used to say to my son was to “use his time wisely”. With him, it meant stuff like he should get his homework done the minute he got home from school so everything would be fresh in his mind and then he could go play and not have to think about it and the added benefit of not hearing me nag him. (I’m sure that was a motivating factor!) Since I started blogging, I was able to use my time wisely today by taking pictures and drafting a few blogs/ideas for later use.
Now I need to proof a couple of documents for a tech start-up before Gossip Girl at 9pm. As always, thanks for reading!
