Actually Missed Date Day Yesterday

70e50bf89e79b74c4efe49a53195072dWe didn’t go on Date Day cause SWMBO is down in San Diego visiting her brother before heading off to Oregon, Ohio to visit her folks. She’s been itching to go visit her brother ever since I visited him last July (after my step-mom’s funeral) and reported back to her that “That boy is fucked up.” Man, her “fix-it mode” kicked in and she’s been chomping at the bit to get down there and get started on him. Poor guy.

So we couldn’t have Date-Day yesterday. I was going to go out anyway; and wound up going to Safeway for $32 worth of stuff and having a single pizza bread thingie while watching Amazing Spaces. And except for missing SWMBO it was okay.

Today was a fairly normal day for us. Even with SWMBO gone for a couple of weeks. So used to eating around 1530 that I had dinner ready and was eating by 1600. Will be looking for a snack later …

And that’s it. For some reason (The onset of Winter?) I just don’t feel like posting as much as I have in the past. Part of it is I’m so boring. Part is that I have other things on my mind lately. And a really Big part is that I’m boring. Even to myself.

Is It That Time Of The Year Again?

Well, what the Hell have I been up to? Replaced the handle on the tailgate. Cost $35 and a bit of time. WAY better than the $210 the Dealer wanted just for the part.

My Tailgate Taken Apart. Was An Easy Fix.

Moved the Manor Stone from around our two fruit trees, dug out the area, put in weed blocker stuff, stones back in place and filled with bark. Now I need to trim the weed blocker stuff and that’ll be done.

Mostly supervised the guy putting in the new front ramp. Did go get the 25 bags of concrete. Couple of young guys loaded them into the truck  but I unloaded them! John did pretty good on this and I wish I could have been more help.

Other than that: Not much. Daily routine stuff and trying to set up a print server that works for everyone and not just me. SWMBO hasn’t been able to connect and I haven’t been able to make her connect to the printer so I’m reinstalling the server. Turns out I don’t need a scanner server since this little scanner we have will scan to a thumb drive. Cool!

beginningWx really suxs now. Some rain. Mostly cloudy and dark. Hate this getting dark early crap! And it’s just going to get worse next week when daylight savings ends.

Anywho, just wanted to let y’all know I’m still alive and kicking. Getting weaker by the week, but hanging in there. Stress Test Nov 27th. Which will show them what I’ve been telling the Doc all along. I don’t run!
