Saturday and not working this weekend
Saturday, November 07, 2020      6 comments

Just a quick stop here - I need to get on the road to Rockford soon. I need to drop my earnest money off at the title company and my financial records off at the bank for the mortgage. Then I will stop and help my friend unpack some more and loa... Read more
Friday already?

Wow, this week went faster than usual. I took a few things over to Goodwill and saw that the oil change light came on so I took the car over to the dealer to get that done last night and walked home - a whole 3 blocks! They will call me when it'... Read more
Thursday 11/5

Nothing fancy this week for Thursday. I played Jackbox games with friends last night - great stress relief from work and online, so safe gaming. I signed the contract for buying the house in Rockford last night, so I guess I'd better start ... Read more
Wednesday and We Can Work It Out
Wednesday, November 04, 2020      15 comments

I am really happy that I was able to get my bid on the new house approved. It was a counter to their counter to my original bid, but that made the final price what I was shooting for, so I am super-pleased. I already have a couple interested in ... Read more
Tuesday and please vote if you haven't already

Today is election day. If you haven't already voted and you are eligible to vote, please do. It likely won't be over tonight - several states are giving a grace period on mail-in votes due to the slow-downs at the Post Office. So long as postm... Read more

Well, I went back to the house and took a good look and measured and made sure I knew where everything would fit. Then I told my realtor to write up an offer. I am going to like living there where there are both Costco and Woodmans closer than t... Read more
Hello, November

Today's forecast: High 39F. Winds NW at 20 to 30 mph. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph. Sure glad I don't put cardboard decorations out - they would be in another state by now. It's a grey day, too. That's OK - I don't need sunshin... Read more
Happy Halloween
Saturday, October 31, 2020      15 comments

As I sit here typing this, I can see the full moon starting to set out my front windows. A nice little bit of atmosphere for Halloween. That's all the atmosphere I will get until I go downstairs and visit my black cat who lives with my son. With... Read more

As this week comes to a close, I am glad I don't have to work over the weekend this week. One of my friend's daughter is Bat Mitzvah tomorrow. With the new restrictions, it will be over Zoom except for the family. The costume party he had planne... Read more
Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for my health. I am thankful for my son's health. I am thankful we didn't have any snow stick around. I am thankful I have a good job that I can do from home. I am thankful for all of you - my Spark friends who ... Read more
Bactrian Hump Day
Wednesday, October 28, 2020      16 comments

The Bactrian or Mongolian camel is the one with two humps. I spun a two for most of my bonus spins today, so it's a Bactrian Hump Day. It snowed lightly for a short time again yesterday morning, but none of it stuck. I am so not ready for w... Read more
Tuesday and I voted-by-mail
Tuesday, October 27, 2020      11 comments

I requested a mail-in ballot and it arrived last week. Last night I read all the directions and filled it in, put it in the envelope, and signed it. Knowing how erratic the P.O. delivery has been, I went onto the county clerk's website and found... Read more
Monday and lots to plan
Monday, October 26, 2020      14 comments

I think I found THE house! It's not perfect - there's no apartment for my son, but there are enough rooms to use that won't be a problem and there are several places it will be easy and fairly inexpensive to make one. It's move-in ready, there'... Read more
Sunday - last one this month
Sunday, October 25, 2020      11 comments

Today I am driving back out to Rockford to look at houses with my friend. Today we will be looking at 4 houses all designed by Jesse Barloga - he was designing houses in the early part of last century, so these houses are all about 100 years old... Read more
Saturday and still working
Saturday, October 24, 2020      9 comments

I worked late last night, but others worked later as last night was a release to production. Today I need to load the 3 new client test files to UAT, but I need to make sure all the parts are in place before I do or I will have the same problems... Read more
