The Freightliner mechanics came out to our parking space and we went over our repair/maintenance list with them.
Before we left for Chick-Fil-A, I stopped by the office and turned in my application to join the Freightliner Chassis Owners Club. I save 5% on the total bill. One year membership is $15 so I am bound to save some money on that deal.
It occurred to me as we were driving around that I have been spelling Gafney wrong. This is our second or third time here and it spelled "Gaffney". I noticed blog friend Paul spelled it that way and I thought he had it wrong. Nope. It was me so between looking at Paul's recent comment here and looking at the signs --- yep I got that one wrong.
Kind of like Fort Meyers, FL. I was spelling it that way until a reader got irritated enough to say, "Spell it right!" - whoops - I know now it is Ft Myers.
Got me thinking to some other helpful folks along the way: Lorraine, Therressa, and Jessica. I am currently working on losing a few pounds. I am currently moving downward slowly and have lost about 8, so I am halfway there.
Years ago I remember Lorraine who said something about 'Portion Control' and that rings a bell now when I go for seconds or have too much on my plate. Then Therressa introduced me to the LoseIt! app which basically is a calorie counter.
Recently Jessica, who is a personal trainer, talked about having small snacks every couple of hours instead of starving yourself all day and eating one meal. When I weight to have one meal, my body thinks it will be a long time before another one and stores it all up as fat. By having small snacks every 2-3 hours, it increases my body's metabolism and I ended up losing pounds quicker.
Spelling errors and losing weight -- all on the same post! Who knew that was going to be part of today's blog...?
While the Roadrunner was in the shop we spent a couple of hours at Chick-Fil-A restaurant. While I worked Pam found a campground for us on Friday night near Savannah. She called and got that set up. We found lunch at a grocery store deli and now I am at a Starbucks. Their internet was pretty slow but they are transitioning to a new provider.
That's all for now on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Thanks for joining us!
