Wednesday, July 08, 2020      7 comments

This week seems long already after last week and the long weekend. But it's only Wednesday - Hump Day - once we get past today, it's all downhill to the weekend. It clouded up in the afternoon again yesterday, but this time it did rain - re... Read more

Happy Birthday. Pop! Today is my step-father's birthday. I started calling him Pop when I was learning to drive. He had an Excaliber kit car that he had bought and repaired and when he got it running I went up and said, "Hey, Pop, can I have t... Read more

Today was a fairly busy work day, but not as bad as sometimes after a holiday weekend, so I can't complain. I made a trip out to the old house to pay the landscapers - I have to keep the grass cut until the closing - it's just another utili... Read more

Last night was loud and colorful in my neighborhood. The fireworks started about 9:15 as the sun was finally setting and the main chunk went on for a good hour. Someone spent quite a bit of money as some of what I could see from my 4-season room... Read more

Normally the 4th would be the paid holiday, but since it's on the weekend this year, we get today off. I am very grateful I get paid holidays as I am well aware that not everyone does. I have friends who are working both today and tomorrow becau... Read more

Found out at yesterday's meeting that I don't have to be at today's for the full time. Still, I am hoping to get out a little early since I put in so many hours Monday and Wednesday. We have tomorrow off for a long holiday weekend. No plans made... Read more
Hello July
Wednesday, July 01, 2020      10 comments

What a way to start the month - I have an all-day meeting from 9-5 even though I start work at 7. I will have those 2 hours to get some real work done. And no, I can't just go in at 9 because part of my job is to check on all the overnight load... Read more
The End of June
Tuesday, June 30, 2020      12 comments

Today is the last day of June - hard to believe the year is half over. Logged onto work yesterday and this week immediately got worse. I didn't get any of my planned work done because I had to take care of a production issue that came up o... Read more

Today promises to be interesting at work as everyone realizes we have 2 and a half days to get a week's worth of work done. It's a short week to start with as the company gives us Friday off for the Fourth of July holiday, but then we have a day... Read more

Some close friends had a small birthday party at their house today. I was invited because I just had mine and they hadn't celebrated it. The company was small, but pleasant. Vegan food was provided including a tasty walnut cake with a small vega... Read more

OK, the buyers fixed the discrepancy in the contract and I signed it this morning. If we can get through the next little bit, the old house is sold, tentative closing on 8/7. Soon I will be able to stop hemorrhaging money. In other news it ... Read more

First off, THANK YOU ALL for all the wonderful birthday wishes that were sent to me yesterday. To top it all off, the listing for my old house went live late yesterday afternoon and the first showing was at 8:30 (after I was in bed) and I open... Read more

Happy Birthday to Me! It's going to be a miserable day at work - back to back meetings almost the entire day and I will have very little time to get up and walk around. I AM going to make sure I get off at 3 today. No working late like I d... Read more

Yesterday was pretty boring to watch. I walked in the house because it was muggy outside. The thunderstorms last night were just a low rumbling grumble with a steady rain and no wind. It did cool it off nicely, so I have opened the house this mo... Read more
