Musings….

Today was the second day of some beautiful Indian Summer days.  Temp was good for shirt sleeves and the sun felt good.  Of course, not having any manpower to assist me outside I couldn’t do a quick organization of one side of the garage that I have been waiting for this time of year to do.  Hopefully it will be done before we hit cold weather and the start of that nasty white stuff.
I realized just now that I hadn’t written in a couple of days.  My idea was to start writing again every day to every other day – some days I am just plain not into it; some days my brain just does not want to come up with an idea to write about.  And then are some blogs that I read where they are only being written once a week, or only when that person gets access to a computer which could be weeks or over a month or two at a click.  Then I wonder why I beat myself up over it.
Right now, sweet hubby is making his delicious buttered popcorn out in the kitchen and has whipped up a couple of sandwiches so that we can eat our late dinner and watch some of the stuff on the DVR.
Now, I don’t know how many of you have DVRs or somehow record shows to watch later – but we do and then it becomes a battle of computer time vs going upstairs to watch what is taped.  Once up there is it watch our shows or watch that movie we have been dying to see.  And making decisions about it is very hard too.  Ah the dilemma of it all.

Tomorrow is the day for haircuts, a perm and a beard trim and then on Friday there is our family picture being taken.  The first one in about 10yrs.  Wish us luck on that one!

Oh Bother………

Here I go again – getting out of the habit of writing on the blog on a semi-regular basis!!

Really been busy with graduations, grad parties, birthday parties and geez Louise two more Saturdays and it will be Father’s Day………….  and what are we going to do for the guys????

Been talking with two different friends about the places they want to move to and what they are looking at – one has even been bidding on a house. Now the house has a really bad leak in the roof and they would have to repair that, the inside of the attic, and the wall of the room below – not sure at this point how much that would cost them and if that plus what they are bidding on the house would really be worth the money.  I told them with so many foreclosed homes on the market (that is what they are bidding on) that maybe they should just keep looking.  I’ve seen quite a few that are in better shape.

The other friends are looking for something to rent.  Something with 2 or 3 bedrooms, a basement and at least a bath and a half.  Little bit easier to help these folks look – seems I have a knack for burying my nose in newsprint for a decent amount of the day.  Ask my family – I read the newspapers, cut out articles and coupons all while watching the news and sitcoms.  (They forgot all the foodie shows that I watch, and I am NOT going to remind them!!)

Found out today that the old Craftsman guarantee works on the clothes that carry that label.  My father had a pair of overalls that were losing those metal thingies on the end of the straps and they wouldn’t stay on so he took those back today and the store gave him a brand new pair – no charge!!  You have up to two years to exchange your item for one of the same.  Thought that, that was pretty cool so wanted to share it with you.

Other than that small blurb – nothing to terribly exciting has been going on.
With that said, am heading up to bed and taking a look at the TV before lights out.
