Re: My dear Joon...

Just when I think I'm over this cold/flu/allergy/plague, it's back. I had hopes of taking the past few days easy, once the laundry was done. Just clothes, though I might get to the rest come Thursday. But the Honey has been reading through books at such a rapid rate that I've taken him to the librar...

Re: My dear Joon...

Sniffling along, but I'm getting things done. Went out this morning and bought groceries - I'm still bringing them in, I've got two bags left. The guys were here yesterday from just after 8 AM until 5:15, and it is really coming together. The shower is almost finished, and they might get the floor d...

Re: My dear Joon...

The cold persists... And now there are bugs. I'm used to the occasional pill bug (aka, roly-polys), and brown recluse - which is a spider, and therefore not an insect, which gave rise to the saying all insects are bugs, but not all bugs are insects. To continue, I have squashed a couple of silverfis...

Re: My dear Joon...

Still coldish... But we went out today. I had a bill and profession cards to mail, Duane wanted to go to the library and a walk in the mall. Prescriptions to pick up, and the first of our two favorite lunch dates. I didn't have enough change, and I was told just bring it next week. We've been eating...

Re: My dear Joon...

The terminators showed up at 8:15 this morning, and the room is gone. All of the studs are exposed, the floor has been ripped out, the tub has been smashed to smithereens, and there's not a shred of drywall anywhere. They won't be here tomorrow, so we'll be able to go out on Tuesday. I'm pleased, bu...

Re: My dear Joon...

Michael was here, and we went off to the cemetery first thing. Well, first thing after two grilled cheese sandwiches for him. It's so warm and muggy - this is October? Anyway, we bought a bouquet of fall flowers - Mike picked it out - and saw that Phil's stone is in place. It's the same size as Lloy...

Re: My dear Joon...

We're getting our new bathroom starting Monday... I'm looking at what I just wrote. I know the contractor called me today, he's bringing the crew over between 8 and 9 o'clock that morning, and I still don't believe it. It's Michael's room, the one he heads off to whenever he arrives and has to go, s...

Re: My dear Joon...

Last night was Trancitus, the eve of the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi. It was the best one I'd ever attended, and I heard that a lot from people who had been to more of them than I have. There was choir, Father Quigley gave a brief talk about the life of St. Francis. He had been to the church ar...

Not to mention Trump getting through two questions in four hours during Mueller testimony practice.

Re: My dear Joon...

It's 3:45 in the morning... I'm finally doing the wash. Two days ago the Honey remarked on the fewness of drawers in the drawers and how the hamper wouldn't close. I growled the once, and he backed off. I was bummed, viciously so all this past week, and he should just be thankful for what is still c...

Re: My dear Joon...

We've accepted the quote and are getting the three living room pieces repaired; I'm not including the dining room chairs. They're going to come and take everything in one go. My only worry is emptying the entertainment center of the TV. I'm scared it might get dropped, but if I remove everything els...

Re: My dear Joon...

I tried calling Ancestry again, but they still seem to be having issues. The furniture repair guy came by. He's quoting us 789.60 for all three living room pieces, which includes the lead for the job and transportation to the shop. Makes sense to me, after all the coach itself was 1,200.00, and this...
