Late 2009 through 2013 have got to be some of the darkest days of my life.
I hope that was my mid-life crisis because I do not wish to experience and feel like I did during those years ever again.
I broke. I mean I broke like I never dreamed possible for me.
Since then I have been building my life up again, day by day, year by year.
I have worked really hard all in areas of my life.
The ole broken foot last year set me back in the health and fitness department, and I am unclear about how I can get that side going again as I head into tax season with a newbie and for some reason challenged helper.
That really concerns me.
This morning. In this moment in time. ALL IS RIGHT IN MY WORLD.
I did it. I finally did it. I got my Hey Dude license plates back!!
I have been trying to get those personalized license plates back since 2010!
My signature thing is – Dude.
Hang around me long enough and you too will be using the term frequently.
When I had the plates before, they made people happy and were conversation starters.
Complete strangers would walk by me and say – Hey Dude. And I would be like – Hey Dude.
I remember a couple of times driving on the interstate and cars would pull up beside me giving me the thumbs up or rolling down their windows yelling – Hey Dude!!
Smiles and happy.
That is how I felt.
I had those plates at a high time in my life before, and now I have them back!
I worked very hard for those plates.
I deserve them.
And I will be enjoying them for the rest of my life.
Yep. I am going to be in my 80’s or maybe even 90’s driving around with Hey Dude license plates on my vehicle.
Granted I will be driving 5 miles per hour and people will be yelling – Hey Dude Get Out of The Way!!!
But I will be hard of hearing and remembering the good old days as I flash them my thumbs up and big smile.
