Bits of Everything!

Hey Everyone!

This will have to be another quick post. Today for lunch we met in the cafeteria and ate with one of the summer help kids that worked within our department. We had a couple departments there and the new VP. It was nice to just chat with everyone a little bit because we don’t always see each other.

It is pouring down rain here today. It was pouring down rain last nigh as well. I’m sure my yard is flooded lol, and I hope it hasn’t come into the house. Fingers crossed! We haven’t had a ‘flood’ in a while so I hope we are ok. It has been a nice reminder that the summer is, sadly, ending soon. 😦

Everett has a haircut scheduled for tonight around 6pm. This will be his 4th cut in less than two years. His hair grows pretty darn fast.

I was also informed that tonight we have a Masonic practice. I found out about it this morning. It got lost in the long month. It is usually the 4th Wednesday in the month and general the next Wednesday is our meeting at the beginning of the next month. Months like this one have five Wednesdays and screw everything up haha. They are going to motion at the next meeting to just have it be the last Wednesday of each month. That will be much better.

Lastly today is my pay day! Woo! I was finally able to put a couple bucks into each of my savings accounts this time.  XD I’m hoping to keep saving until I hit my own set buffer amount and keep going. That way I can feel safe in getting a few things done and know that I didn’t just drain the whole account.

That is it for me today. I hope you have a less rainy Wednesday than me, and I hope to see you back again tomorrow! 😀 😀

We Made It To The Weekend

Hey Everyone!

It is Friday and that means another end to the work week for me. Here finishing out the last three hours of my day job, I will finish setting up a PC for a co-worker, and that is about it. It has been pretty quiet around here. On a random note, in a way, we have our water shut off at work. The state department is working on the main water line, right outside our building. they say it will only be off for a couple hours but who knows if that is true. they planned it in a terrible way. They have had t off since noon, which means we ll have to eat lunch and try to not use the restroom, wash our hands, clean our plates, or fill water bottles. It has been very inconvenient.

I know you probably don’t want to hear about our weather but damn it is cold here. Last night it finally dipped below 0 degrees F. This happens every year, but it seems like this was the first time this season. It is mid day here and we finally have it back up to about 10 degrees haha, heat wave! There is some snow but not as much as there normally is. The killer is that we are having strong winds up to and over 20 mph. My wife and I will try to stay warm tonight.

Tomorrow we are heading out to do some window shopping, for the most part. My wife has things bouncing around in her head about things we need and want for the house, as well as books and clothes in general. We want to get a good idea of what the area has to offer for us, and have a a nice day away from home. I think I may be in love with wayfair.com. Don’t judge me! They really do have everything you need. I can search for bedroom sets and they come with everything. They have bed frames, dressers, night stands, and other accessories for your room all rolled into one item online. It is really amazing. The website is very user friendly and easy to use. It is where we ordered our dining room table and rug and I know we will use it again.

As for the rest of the weekend I would like to just hangout and unwind from the weeks frustrations. Have a few good cups of coffee and stay in the house, of course wearing my pajamas 😀

That’s all from me for this week. I hope you all enjoy your weekend, and I’ll see you on Monday! 😀 😀

Last night I used all the joint compound I had on that huge hole in my wall. I have one more side to do tonight so I have to run back to the store. My goal is to have that done tonight in time to go to a local play. Saturday my brother and dad are coming to help sand the wall and get my original microwave to fit in the space provided. If you recall it was big for the space by a hair. I am just going to end the BS and sand down the side of the cabinet and get it in there. Enough is enough and I’m not messing around 😉 With all that being done my wife can paint and we can buy the light fixtures. I will have to run the cable about where it needs to go and then we can have the contractor back to hook it all up and put on the counter top.

I mentioned a play in the last paragraph. There is a production called “Christmas Spectacular” at our local theater, that my co-workers kids are in. It is singing, dancing, and a play all rolled into one. From what I see it is getting rave reviews and I kind of want to go see it. The tickets are $18 per person, which really isn’t that bad. My co-worker said that I can buy tickets at the door so that may be what we do if we go. It starts at 7pm tonight. They will also have a show at 2pm tomorrow and 7pm. I hope we can make one of those times.

The weather here has been terrible. I have been shoveling snow twice a day for about a week and it’s killer on the back. On top of that the temperature has dropped drastically. We are consistently in the single digits. This morning I found out that my truck, covered in snow, wouldn’t start. I had to jump it with my wife’s car at 6am. In the process I banged up my fingers and they started bleeding. I couldn’t fell my hands since it was so cold out that I didn’t even know what I did. I even had the blood freeze my two fingers together! Not a great graphic image, I know, but it did happen. I got to work and had the nurse fix me up. So I’m all good again.

That’s it for this week. I hope you enjoy your weekend. I will try to do the same all while getting some more work done. Stay safe and warm! 😀 😀
