Ended The Week With Food Poisoning

Or started the week with it; depending on how you look at it.

Switching to daylight savings kind of threw me off and I had a hard time sleeping Saturday night into Sunday. So I got up at 0400 (new time) and watched some TV. (Watching TV for us is starting something we’ve downloaded. “Discovering <famous actor>” this time.)

Wish I Were Playing With Real Money!

About 0600 I really started feeling bad. Spent the next 12 hours “sleeping” next to the toilet cause I didn’t dare (DARE!) get more than 4 feet away. Yes, had all the food poisoning symptoms and episodes. Repeadily.

Feeling WAY better today. Even got a fairly good night sleep. Should have because of how exhausted I was from my day.

Another Watch List

Last week went pretty much normally. Can’t give you a blow-by-blow cause it’s all so mundane. I got up. I did shit. I tried to get to sleep. Repeat.

I am way past ready to move down south. Southern Utah/Northern Arizona or Yuma even. I get this way when summer’s faded out and all the days are cold and we’re starting our move into wet weather. I hate Western WaRshington. I’m only here for SWMBO.

My Idea Of The Perfect Window Seat!

Phew. Not feeling completely up to par. Yet. Just puttering around in the basement tired me out. Took the Dog for a tour of the back 40 and wanted to call a taxi about half way through it. Phew.

Anywho, since I’m just not feeling “normal” I’ve taken it kinda easy. Flying from Portland to SLC in the 787 and watching my FA-18 “Friend” shoot down other planes.

And even though it’s ONLY 1730, and DARK outside, I’m ready to lay down and read. Sounds good!

Another Month In Paradise

I know. I know! A couple of months without updating (a blog that really no one reads) is a bit much; even for me. I’ve been busy. Really really busy.

Of course, we returned to our Renter having abandonded us (Thanks, Terra Lynn Burk!) so I’ve been busy in the MILA getting rid of the rest of her stuff and cleaning up. Completely tore out the bath (I mean everything OUT!). Slowly getting it rebuilt.

SAC Museum

We found a nice, almost new, walk in shower pan for $15 at the Bremerton Habitat. Got a new valve and handle stuff for the shoer. I paid a plumber $250 to move the water valve up to shower level and install the shower pan. Money well spent!

So I’ve been installing th hardiboard (cement board) and building a new soffet (that’ll double as towel/whatever storage). and whatever else needs to be done.

And still doing all my regular stuff around the house. Finally got off my fat, old, lazy ass and moved things around in the basement and did a long delayed cleaning up. That took almost a week of “spare” time!

Since SWMBO isn’t working (except for her college classes to be a Genealogist) we’ve kind of gone into short rations mode. Not spending nearly as much in our weekly trips to the store. Going to cheaper plasces for dinner on Date Day. WinCo foolds getting a lot of our business. Habitat for Humanity gets a lot of our business too.

The Weener Mobile at The Henry Ford

SWMBO got a bunch of ceramic tile and trowels at Habitat the other day and swears she’s going to tile the MILA shower and bathroom. With her being busy with her classes though I can imagine I’m going to be learning a new skill.

Also gathering all the info I need to take Terra to Small Claims Court but I have to do it in the County she lives in. I think that puts an unfair burdon on the aggrieved party; but what do I know. I’m going to start everything Dec 1st just so she can have a great Christmas worrying about it. (Yeah, I’m still upset.)

Star Trek Exhibit at The Henry Ford

Honestly, I’ve just been working around the house or suffering through headaches since we got back. Had 2 or 3 really bad headaches a week so far. There are times I know I’ve gone into another migraine only because my head aches instead of hurts. And I’ve gone through the prodrome without getting a headache also. Weird.

I’ll tell y’all all about the crap Peninsula Credit Union tried to put me through today some other time. They lost a loyal customer today.
