Still windy and wet outside so thereâ€™s really no getting out there. Not really afraid of getting wet; itâ€™s the limbs falling off the trees one has to watch for! Happens every time it gets windy up here.
Not much else going on. The usual Sunday Chores: laundry, dishes, etc. SWMBO is going to make dinner. Some kind of broiled steak, mashed taters, & veggies. Yum!
So, Iâ€™ve gotten to the point Iâ€™m ready to set a date for my step-son to move out. Iâ€™ve finally gotten tired of his crap and am ready for him to go. Anyplace as long as it ainâ€™t here. Really tired of his â€œ33 going on 16â€ Freeloader mentality. After almost 30 years of him reminding me every chance he gets that Iâ€™m not his â€œDadâ€ (like his real Dad ever did anything for him) Iâ€™m ready to accept that, alright, Iâ€™m not his â€œDad.â€ Good. That means I can treat him the way he treats me: Completely ignore him, be barely civil, and appear â€œniceâ€ only when I want something. Thatâ€™s how tired of his shit I am.
Tired of our â€œrentersâ€ also. Here it is the 12th and they still havenâ€™t paid their rent for this month; knowing that neither of us is working and we need the bucks. At least theyâ€™ve quit making a lot of damned noise at night. But they do leave their front porch light on all night which makes it really hard to go out stargazing on those nights Iâ€™m able to do so. Iâ€™m just ready for them to move also.
MCARC 2-meter Sunday Evening Chat Net went well. Eight check-ins! Gotta be some kind of record! Was watching my antenna wave around in the wind but it worked okay.
And thatâ€™s about it for tonight. Boring, I know. But that is my life. I think it may be time to take a day trip somewhere. I heard thereâ€™s an Observatory south-west of us somewhere. Think Iâ€™ll look it up!
