TGIF August 7th edition
Friday, August 07, 2020      15 comments

Finally, today we close on selling my old house. It will be enough to pay off the solar since that was a 12 months no interest loan and refresh my savings quite a bit. It will definitely stop the money-drain as I will no longer be paying for 2 o... Read more
Thursday got away from me
Thursday, August 06, 2020      11 comments

I forgot to post a blog yesterday and almost again today. It got warmer today and I shut the house up and let the air run, but now it is cooling off again and I think I will open it up for the night. There's a little breeze. Went over to my... Read more
What does Tuesday do?
Tuesday, August 04, 2020      10 comments

I was trying to think if there are any songs that mention Tuesday and came up blank except for one line of The Cure's "Friday I'm In Love" and I certainly don't want that. Still nice and cool this morning with a partly cloudy high of 74 predicte... Read more
Rainy days and Mondays
Monday, August 03, 2020      11 comments

Is it really August? High today of 72 with rain later, so it certainly doesn't feel like it. Right now it's just gloomy and chilly - only 63. Think I will open the house back up again. I took a load of boxes of stuff to the charity shop yes... Read more
Welcome to August - Oops lost yesterday's blog
Sunday, August 02, 2020      10 comments

I did write a blog yesterday titled Welcome to August, but I evidently either accidentally deleted that tab or just plain forgot to hit the Post button. CRS strikes again. For those of you unfamiliar with that acronym, it stands for Can't Rememb... Read more
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

Another Hump Day
Wednesday, July 29, 2020      15 comments

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
Can't Trust That Day
Monday, July 27, 2020      10 comments

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
Friday, July 24, 2020      15 comments

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
Thursday, July 23, 2020      13 comments

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
