I had a scare last night. I was setting here watching some inane TV show at around 9:30 and heard a vehicle coming up my driveway. Flying low!! Horn honking!! My doggies were outside and I am so grateful they stayed on the porch. They usually head for the driveway to greet whomever comes up my driveway. If they would have done their usual behavior I would have had two squished dogs.
The truck just whizzed by my front door (I have a circular driveway) and kept on going. I got to the door in time to see it leaving and knew who it was. It was the same idiot that did this same thing about a month ago at 2:00 AM. I stayed on my porch and watched to see where he would go next and he went to a neighbors house (his girlfriend). She is out of town but he has a key and went on in. I waited a little while and called down there. He wouldn't answer the phone, so I called the friend, out of town. I asked her to ask him to quit doing this. While I was talking to her he called me back and was drunk as a skunk. He swore that he didn't honk the horn that it was the heater in the truck making noises. Like I don't know the difference between a horn and a heater. I tried to get it through his drunken stupor that the horn wasn't the point. I tried to get it through his head that I didn't want him driving up here again, period. I even told him that I had my gun in my hand by the time I'd gotten to the door and he was lucky that he didn't get shot. Which was a lie. I'd forgotten to pick up the shotgun, again. But he didn't know that. And maybe that will keep him from doing it again.
I've got a "no trespassing" sign posted at the beginning of my driveway but it is weathered and not as visible as it should be. When I go to town this week I'm getting a new one. And the next time this idiot does this I'm calling the police on him.
I live about 200 feet off the road and no one has any right driving through my driveway unless they are coming for a visit.
It took me about 2 hours last night to quit shaking and as I'm typing this I'm shaking again.
My eating has been alright. Not great and not bad. My weight is fluctuating up and down within a 3 pound range. And I'd say that's good for maintenance. But boy am I ever craving the good stuff, like fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, fried liver and onions, fettuccine Alfredo, and spaghetti with lots of garlic bread. Think I'm going to have to fix myself some in a small amount or it will get the best of me and I'll binge. But I'll be careful and not fix it all in the same week. Maybe I can have one of these meals once a week and do alright. Those of you on maintenance, do you think that will be harmful?
