Got tired of squeaking under that tree that fell over at the end of the driveway so I got out yesterday and cut the thing down and moved it out of the way. By hand. With a hand saw cause I donâ€™t have a working chainsaw. Paying for it today; I can tell you. Iâ€™m getting too old for that shit. And I need a new digger! And tractor. And a 20 year old body again.
Otherwise, just the same today as any other day weâ€™re still snowed in. Well, we can get into town, but it ainâ€™t exactly easy. Lots of sliding around and 4-wheel low still until we get to the main road.
Donâ€™t know how tomorrow is going to work if SWMBO canâ€™t get her car out of the driveway so she can go work the genealogy library. I suppose I could let her use the truck. Maybe. If sheâ€™s nice to me. Really nice.
Been half-assed looking through our â€œstuffâ€ to see what we have and where it is. Iâ€™m amazed at the amount of â€œstuffâ€ weâ€™ve packed into this house in only 10 short years. For not really having much storage space(s). Except for the basement. Been straightening up there also. Three piles so far: Dump Run, Thrift Store Run, and burn pile.
My Renter. My Renter. Iâ€™ve contacted her by text several times about last months electric and this months rent; to no avail. Really seems like sheâ€™s gaffing me off and I canâ€™t understand why. I donâ€™t believe Iâ€™ve done anything to deserve it. Other than being the Slumlord, that is. Truth is Iâ€™ve bent over backwards trying to accommodate her. I really like her. Looking forward to meeting her baby this summer. Hope this works out. Iâ€™m okay with a lot of things as long as we TALK.
At least we donâ€™t have to go to court about her ex-boyfriend; the one that beat her up last year. After all these delays and subpoena’s he took a plea deal and avoided jail completely. Even after ignoring all the â€œno contactâ€ stuff. Sheâ€™s pissed. Iâ€™m just relieved. Best thing he could have done though as our testimonies would have put him away for awhile.
But what it all really means is she doesnâ€™t have to be nice to me anymore. Not that I would have told anything but the truth in any case. (If youâ€™re honest you donâ€™t have to remember what lie you told!) I do like her, but not enough to lie.
Making Shepardâ€™s Pie for dinner. Smells yummy. (It was good. Will be good tomorrow too.)
