Hey All! Still jamming at work. Lots to do on the estate and lots of side jobs. I replaced Jo’s rear shocks today, as well. Real easy. There’s a youtube video that shows how (there’s one for how to do EVERYTHING!!!)
Working til 4:30 then off to disc golf with Jo and Ian (my youngest).
Championship of the Universe (as we know it) tomorrow night in Danbury. Weeeee!
Deerfield Riverfest Friday!!!! We’re renting a cabin. No tent to set up!!!

Oops, had my work phone on “do not disturb” mode today. Thought it was unusually quiet.

Damn shame.

I need to accidentally figure out how I did that so I can accidentally do that again.

Is it a Samsung phone? Because I know how to do that for Samsungs.

Howdy strangers! Greetings from El Paso!

I have a ton to catch you all up on, but here’re the highlights:

– Moved to El Paso
– Found a dog alongside the freeway in Mississippi during the move. We’ve adopted her and named her Sippi.
– My birthday was yesterday.
-Been busy unpacking the infinite boxes.

How’re y’all?

Happy Birthday! Sippi is good! Sounds like Zippy, which every dog should be,

Happy (Belated) Birthday!

I feel your pain with the boxes. Still working on the basement of our house.

Also, DOGGIE.

Thanks! Sippi’s a sweetheart. A pistol, but a sweetheart.

This is the best I’ve got so far, soon after we picked her up on the side of I-59.

DOGGIE! I love labs. My old dog was part lab (bascially all lab except her face and stunted size from the schnauzer part). So much fun.

She’s so sweet. The kisses are unending. As is the mischief!

Can only imagine how happy she is to be in a loving home.

It’s hot and cold right now. They sleep next to each other sometimes. Other times, Joy tells Sippi to back the fuck off (especially when Joy is trying to snuggle her mom). Sippi’s got a lot to learn boundary-wise.

Joy’s the boss!

Good morning, peeps.

BULLET POINTS (FOR YOUR PLEASURE):

  • My cousin’s wife’s funeral was yesterday. Whenever my mother’s side gets together, I am reminded that I come from a long line of lunatics. Delightful lunatics that I don’t see often enough.
  • With that, once my mother gets a drink or two in her, she starts telling old timey stories, and I seriously can’t believe the shit these people whom I’ve looked up to my entire life have done. Hysterical.
  • Back at it today. I have some problem fixing to do. Fuck me.
  • I looked at another apartment last night. It was beautiful, except the room that would be mine, which was a fucking cell. Seriously, it was probably 8×8.
  • However… it had parking and a beautiful kitchen and nice roommates, and storage and laundry. Sigh. WHAT DO I DO?
  • I just don’t know. I’m so tired of apartment hunting and I don’t want to move but I also don’t want to put up with the stupid shit I put up with from my current landlady and her family… also known as my aunt and cousins.
  • I haven’t skated since last Tuesday or Wednesday, I think. Been a long week.
  • I can’t wait for the draft, though I’m not watching Friday night because I’M GOING OUT WITH MY WORK CRUSH. Not as like a date, but who the hell knows?

    That depends on how much time you plan to spend in your room. If you’ll just be going in there to sleep & spending most of your time in whatever communal living space the apartment has, then it could be worthwhile. If you expect to spend a significant part of your waking hours in your room, then I’d advise against it.

    the stupid shit I put up with from my current landlady and her family… also known as my aunt and cousins

    From your father’s side of the family I presume (since they sound like the decidedly non-delightful sort of lunatic)?

    Oddly, no, that’s my mother’s side as well!

    As for the room… also, no cable

    Weee! So I’ve had on my calendar here at work a meeting from 9:15-9:45 for 2 and a half months, not once have we had the meeting because my boss cancels it every week. He finally took it off the calendar. Good thing we had that going on

    Morning? Yeah it’s morning.

    Been here for 45 minutes, can’t get my printer working right and the coffee maker is broken. I refuse to let this get to me though because it’s Wednesday and maybe I’ll partake in wine-down Wednesday tonight.
