The movers came yesterday morning at 8 AM and picked up the washer that came with the new house (I had unhooked it already) and put it on the truck. We then went to the old house and while I loaded my car with odds and ends, they loaded the truc... Read more

I called yesterday and they could fit me in this morning. They will be coming to the new house first and picking up the washer - I'm trading the one that came with this house for the one I bought for the old house a few years ago - I like it muc... Read more

Friday, May 08, 2020      9 comments

Got a lot of shopping done yesterday - I was rather surprised at how many cars were on the roads. Made it to Costco and bought 2 of most everything (but not of TP - those are huge packages), then up to Woodman's. The parking lot had quite a lot ... Read more

I scheduled vacation time for a long weekend months ago because there was a convention I was going to attend in OH. Those plans obviously changed, the convention was canceled, but I did NOT cancel my PTO since it was already approved and the com... Read more

Meant to post yesterday, but was too caught up in other things by the end of the day. Oh, well, life can be like that. We had a lovely weekend here - sunny and near 80, but not humid. I got 3 trips to the old house and transplanted all my iris... Read more

It was grey and foggy again this morning, then it drizzled a little, then slowly cleared up. Unfortunately. I had to work late again, so I probably won't make it out to the old house until the weekend.... Read more

Yep, the weather folks got it right for a change - the thunderstorms rolled in right about the time I would normally have gotten off work, but I ended up working late so it didn't matter. I have a late meeting this afternoon so I doubt I will ma... Read more

It's Monday, so back to work I go - at home, that is. Last week the weather was kind of miserable, so nothing got done on getting the last of the stuff cleaned out of the old house. Saturday I got one car-full before it started raining. I t... Read more

I took most of a sick day yesterday - sinus headache. Today I'm wondering if ophthalmologists are included in the essential workers. My vision has always (since 2nd grade, at least) been poor, but it's getting very noticeably worse an I need a... Read more

I wrote a blog this morning and accidentally deleted it when I was trying to get this old laptop running faster. I don't remember what was in it, just that I wanted to make my goal of 3 per week. Getting really worried about where I live - thi... Read more

I am slowly getting more terrified - the pressure is on to "open the economy" in spite of the rising numbers of cases and deaths. Every day I hear another politician talking about it. Why can't they just listen to the scientists? This is not som... Read more
