Last TGIF of July
Friday, July 31, 2020      12 comments

Tomorrow it will be August. July seemed to both creep along and fly past. It seemed to creep every time I thought about closing on the old house (1 week from today) but it seems to have flown because I had long hours at work and didn't get some ... Read more

I think work is going to be long days until the end of the year. Luckily, I have some PTO already scheduled. I am taking 4 days off the end of August and meeting up with my mom in Springfield, MO. It's a little bit farther for me to drive, but t... Read more

Several people mentioned their doorbells are broken yesterday, so I want to clear that up. My doorbell is not broken. I have no doorbell and this house doesn't look like it ever did. The was a knocker on the front door which I replaced with my b... Read more

I'm sure you all know the first line to that song, but sometimes it just turns out that way. I never did get out to the store yesterday. I definitely need to go today. At least to Aldi, but also up to Woodman's if I can. Yesterday was jus... Read more

My neighbors to the south put their house on the market yesterday. There was an Open House today, so I went over to see it. It started life the same as my house, but different modifications were made to the two and theirs looks very different on... Read more
Tired Friday

I could not get to sleep last night for some reason. I think I finally fell asleep about 1:30 or a little after since I'm pretty sure I heard the clock chime the half hour. Thank goodness it's Friday. I'm glad we are getting one more day of... Read more
Late Thursday

Went to the funeral. Good thing it was cooler today as there was almost no shade where the burial was. Also, there is no way to get steps during a viewing and funeral without looking like an a$$. I doubt I will make 10K today for the first time ... Read more
Hump Day Humbugs
Wednesday, July 22, 2020      12 comments

Hump Day - only for people who work a "standard" Mon-Fri work week. Which I do, to be fair, but there are many (especially in retail) who do not. Tomorrow I will need to take some time off to go to the funeral of my friend's father. It's down on... Read more
Gloomy Tuesday

It's getting brighter outside my windows, but still grey, no sun. Forecast is for cloudy all day, then scattered thunderstorms starting around 4 and raining on through the night. Supposed to be a little bit cooler - high in the low-mid 80s inste... Read more

Today it is sunny again. I never did go to Costco yesterday - between the rain and not liking to go shopping on the weekend when stores are busy, I just didn't. I did make it to the pharmacy to pick up my son's meds. Hoping to take off about noo... Read more
Stormy? Sunday
Sunday, July 19, 2020      10 comments

It was lightning and grumbling thunder (just low grumbles, no loud cracks) when I got up this morning and about a half hour after that, we got a gentle rain. Not quite what I would call a thunderstorm, but I am not a meteorologist. Still hot and... Read more

I worked a 12 hour day Wednesday because of a project I was running late on, but I managed to finish it yesterday and get off work on time. Today it is Friday and I will relax a bit since there is nothing critical at work until they get some of ... Read more
