Exactly what I was thinking at the time, I'd have to think they were more for surveillance, you're not chasing someone with 140hp either haha

Don't know why I thought that. So I pull into the left lane and stomp on it. And I'm in my fast car. As soon as I was beside him I was doing over the speed limit and I was on my way up. Way up. He turned on his lights (no siren) and I stomped on my brakes back down to 100. He just gave me a dirty look, I pulled in behind him and stayed on my best behaviour all the way in.

It did have me questioning why I need 500 hp. You can go from legal to lost license in my car in about 1.5 seconds. Today was a good reminder there is a lot of risk in this thing.
Edit: Wrong thread

My bio sister & her son are coming up from the US tonight/tomorrow, to meet me (bio dad's side). I'm happy but I'm so frigging anxious too. When my bio dad came, I had less than 24 hours notice, so I didn't have too much time to get anxious/freaked out. This time around, this has been in the works since November, and I've had more time to get wigged out. I don't know quite why I'm so freaked out, this is a very good thing, we've talked a lot, we're very alike, and I always wanted a sister but yeah - happy freakout on the go here.

My son and I visited my Dad in Calgary this past weekend. Weather was beautiful and we brought our baseball gear. I threw him BP every day we were there, shagged flies and fielded grounders. It was awesome.

I absolutely nailed my first ever homemade spicy wonton soup tonight and on a rainy day like today, I feel pretty freaking good about it.

Was out in K Country yesterday (apparently we had some type of storm in Calgary yesterday ?? ) and saw mama grizzly and her two cubs enjoying the day in the ditch along the highway. That was cool and made me happy.

Driving home from my tennis match this evening and I spotted this deer eating the leaves from a tree. One of the joys of living in a small town.

I'm honestly pretty surprised how good Billy Idol still is and what a great show he put on tonight. That made me happy.

Finally getting a new job after being laid off and working 4 months of retail really MMH. It goes a long way to getting rid of the feelings of being a failure and being unwanted.
