I Never Want To Do That Again!

b4Woke up with severe abdominal pains yesterday. Double-over type of abdominal pains. Knew it was “gas” (thank you chili-frito’s I had for dinner Wednesday!) but, my, it hurt. By 0900 I was ready to run a hose up there to ease the pressure and pain.

But, all it took was eating a handfull of cheerio’s. That started everything to “moving” and you don’t want to know where I spent the rest of the day (pretty much) or what I was doing there. Just know: it wasn’t pretty, peaceful, nor particularly pleasant. So yesterday was pretty much shot. Haven’t had pain like that since that food poisoning we got during Desert Storm.

Got outside today and built a small fire pit out of those smaller manor stone(s) I’ve had laying around holding the side of the yard from falling down. Didn’t start raining until I actually started burning something in it. Which figures.


Then, because I have to see things, I set out 14 cinder blocks in the shape of how I want my new raised bed planters to be. Maybe. Trying to figure out if I want 4 or 5 12 ft beds going side-side, or, 4 25 ft beds going end-end. Since I’m going to put cement pads in for them I really need to make up my mind.

old2Oh, went to the NMARES meeting last night at QFC. Almost 6 years and they’re finally getting somewhat interesting!

Anywho, I get to pick SWMBO up at the QFC tonight. Woo Woo! I may even take the Dog with me.

So we be home. Time to get settled in.

Just Another Day In Paradise. Sorta.

Decided to get off my lazy, fat, old, ass and do what I could outside today; since it wasn’t raining. So I moved the last of the cinder blocks from where they used to be (where the old garden area was) to where they are now (near the new garden area). And, of course, half way through the job it started sprinkling. By the time I finished it was downright raining so I figured the Universe didn’t want me to do that anymore and quit.


So I swept the garage until it quit raining again. Started a pile of “stuff” that can go to the dump. Made a run to ACE Hardware for some brackets that I’ll need when I move my 2-meter/440 J-Pole up on the roof.

Other than that, it was pretty much SSDD like it always is. Did find out that if I play a movie, start X-Plane, and bring up World Editor and load an airport, that my computer is going to lock up. I only suspected it before, the other times it’s locked up, but now I’m pretty sure that’s one (or several) things that will lock it up. Note to self: Stop That!


The 900 MHz net went well @ 1915. The MCARC 2-meter Wednesday Evening Chat Net went well @ 1930.

And that was my day. SWMBO just pulled in so I’m going to spend some time with her before going to lay down and read.
