I was really hoping to get more stuff out of the old house today, but it's raining again. The only day all week I have time to go and I can't. Hopefully, the coming week will be better and I'm not stuck late at work multiple nights. Ah, well, at... Read more

As I was typing the word "Saturday" an old song popped into my head - "Saturday, In the park, I think it was the 4th of July..." It's only May, but it IS Saturday. Now, was that Chicago, ELO, or Yes? I know it was NOT Elton John. The song is fro... Read more

Normally, yay, but I will have a very long day tomorrow starting at noon until whenever the release has been certified as good. Yesterday I managed to eat on-plan completely for the first time in quite a while - no cheating at all. There's ... Read more

Woke to a thunderstorm. It doesn't seem to be raining hard or even windy, but very dark out and I can hear the thunder grumbling off and on and the occasional flash of lightning. I was right about the long day at work yesterday and there i... Read more

The sun is already up and I have a long day working (from home) in front of me today and probably for the rest of the week. I do have Saturday morning off as the release I have to work doesn't start until noon. I do like working from home becaus... Read more

My mini vacation is over and it's back to work today for a 5 day work-week as the team I am on is responsible for the software release this Saturday. I'm glad the grey morning yesterday turned into a partly sunny day. I didn't get quite as much ... Read more
Monday and Day 5 of my 5-day weekend

My son was happy to get the set of metro-shelves that had been in his bedroom at the old house, but he wants shelf-liners for it so he can put books on without worrying they will fall through the bars. He probably needs some bookends, too, since... Read more

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
Saturday and last move of big things

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 - day 2 of my 5-day weekend
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
