Just not a lot going on around here. Foot and knee are still hurting. Get a headache every other day or so. It’s raining off and on. Getting colder and darker and, OH MY GOD, the Sun is going down! WTF?
Just kidding. Sorta. Really not a lot going on around here cause I’m still retired and just don’t get out much. Saturday date with SWMBO. BUT, I did get to go on a mid-week “date” with her last Wednesday. She had the day off to do Dental stuff and we spent the day together. Even made a COSTCO run.
Which really threw me off cause I kept thinking it was Saturday. I suppose if we had not eaten and gone shopping I wouldn’t have been confused! Getting Old.
My Renter is still driving me fookin’ nuts. I’m beginning to think she’s trying to get evicted. I know she’s having a hard time working and all (and Adulting), but if she’d come up and talk to me we could work something out. I’ve already agreed to lower the rent for two months while she looks for a roomie. But, without talking I have no idea what’s going on.
Meanwhile, rent is late every month and I usually have to remind her it’s due. I shouldn’t have to go to her for rent. She’s still behind for part of last month’s rent and electric and all I’ve heard is “I’m gonna do this …” but nothing’s done.
Not that it’s all bad. It’s just we don’t get along as well as we used to. And that kinda bums me out. (And NO Im not having those kind of fantasies!)
Anyway, that’s pretty much it for tonight. About 1930 I suddenly get really tired and my head will start to hurt. I hate Winter coming on!
I spend WAY too much time alone around here. I’ve forgotten how to interact with people in inter-personal (age appropriate) relationships. I need to get out more but find that I can’t stand most people. Most. Not All. And that’s probably a failing on MY part and not theirs. Fuck. I don’t want to be a “Hermit,” but I don’t really want to get out either.
Probably the Depression talking. Today is probably the last really nice day of the Summer (around 80) and Winter is imminent so we’ll be ass-deep in rain and cold Wx again. Even the “Tree of Winter Doom” out back is starting to change colors. Maybe I ought to seriously consider moving to Yuma for the winter?
Otherwise, not a whole lot going on around here. Enjoying the last few days of Summer. My poor friend “just stopped by” to pick up some more of those ICF blocks and caught me and the Dog sans clothing. Dude, that’s what you get for not calling first!! He took it in stride though. Which was good cause it was a nice day and we were in our own back yard. Deal with it.
SWMBO and I had a pretty nice Labor Day weekend this past weekend. Had our usual Date Day Saturday and Monday we went out and about getting things at Home Depot and having a late lunch at Burger King. She stopped by Jo Anne’s Fabrics while I sat out in the truck watching the girls walk by.
Oh, we bought an uprite 20.2 cu freezer at Sears to replace our chest freezer. Which still works great even after about 20 years. Tired of digging through the top layers of frozen stuff to find things that went mummified 8 years ago though. I believe there are things at the bottom of that freezer that have been there since we first moved into this house 9 years ago. Maybe an uprite will fix that. (Maybe it won’t.) We’re going to try anyway. And even if it doesn’t completely work out, at $540 it’s not a too spendy experiment. Should be delivered Saturday.
Other than that: Both SWMBO and our Renter are driving me NUTS. For pretty much the same reason.
Getting tired of these damned headaches. Have had a couple of real croppers (meaning I had to try to freeze my head through the night) and I feel like I want to get one right now. Wx changes will cause me to have a migraine and that is about to happen big time. You think I’d be used to them by now.
Bought the tool-thingie I need to make my own cat 5/6 cable when we stopped by Home Depot for the new bathroom fan for the MILA. Figured since I bought that 800 feet of cat5 cable at St. Vinnys for $15 I might as well splurge for the crimp thingie to make my own. Now, when I tear out the ceiling in the basement I may be able to run cable throughout the house. Cool!
Anywho, had tuna sandwiches for dinner to use up that tuna I made the other day. It’s about time for SWMBO to get home and the MCARC Net to start. Was a really nice day outside today. Hope it’s not the last until next July!
