A long evening

**I had a whole post written, but when I went to post it to my blog somehow it disappeared so have to rewrite now. I hate it when that happens.**

Last night was the longest night that I've had in ages. I can tell I'm getting older since staying up past 10pm anymore is a problem. Hubby and I had to run by the bank to sign the paperwork for the truck we bought. The appointment was at 5:30, but when we got there the loan officer didn't have any of the paperwork done so what should have only taken 5 minutes ended up taking 45.

After leaving there, we went out for dinner. I am pleased to say that I did well by ordering a grilled chicken sandwich, no mayo, a side salad with fat free dressing and a diet cola. Although the french fries were really calling my name, I managed to steer clear of them.

Finished eating then were off to a city council meeting. We were on the agenda to see if the city would extend our contract with them (business) from two years to five years. They did. Again, though, what should have only taken 30 minutes ended up taking over 90.

Once we left there, we still had to go pick up the truck we bought. It was located over an hour's drive away. By now it was 8:30 and I was getting tired. We drove for what seemed like forever, but finally made it there. Of course, the guy we were buying it from was nowhere to be found so hubby had to call him then we had to wait another 20 minutes for him to get there with the keys and truck title.

Once I knew hubby was in the truck and ready to drive, I took off. He had to stop to fuel up, but I drove straight home. Now, I hate driving at night. I used to do it all of the time when I was younger, but anymore I let hubby do the night driving. It's not that I can't see. I'm just not as comfortable driving then. Plus, at this point, I'm pretty tired. So, I drove all of the way home with my eyes wide open, making sure no deer jumped out in front of me. Thankfully I didn't see any. I pulled into our driveway at 11pm on the nose.

I'm hoping this is the last late night that I have for awhile. I really need my beauty sleep. Ha!

Congratulations on that dinner out. Sounds to me like you did GREAT! And avoiding the french fries calling your name is awesome!

Glad you made it home safely. Enjoy the new truck and congrats on the extended contract. Sounds like things are looking up just a bit.
