Hating life at the moment.
Only one week until I leave for Europe. Life would be too busy if that were the only thing on my plate, but work is not going well either (Thanks, Autolayout!).
So sorry- I hope your luck changes.
Much cleaning and moving of boxes last night. And now that we have trim paint, there will be touch up painting all around starting tomorrow. Today is a dentist appointment to try and figure out what is swelling my jaw a tiny bit- I’m afraid something is growing under a bridge I have- maybe a troll. And tonight, a Games meeting, the first one I’ve been able to attend in 3 months!
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Cheesy Yellow Sunday!
Thanks. If a few things would start magically working again all would be well. I can only blame myself for procrastinating about this trip, it’ll be fun, but probably not magical.
Sorry to hear about your dental woes. One of the things I was going to put in to today’s post was the happiness I had yesterday upon hearing that all was well with my mouth.
I’ll be there on Sunday morning regardless of my preparation for the trip.
Glad to hear you two will be at Cheesy Yellow Sunday, I plan to bring the bike. what about you guys?
Totally understand busy, I have had days that 3PM rolls around and I have not left my chair all day.
Moving in 2 weeks and the house is getting closer to packed up. I think a half a day and we could be done. Now the garage and shed are another story. I have way too much crap in there.
Cheesy Sunday! I will finally be able to make it! I have had a conflict for years and always wished I could attend one of these.
Sweet! My boss just called a McKesson Diligence In Risk Technology McDIRT meeting at 2:30.
That is code for “Meet at Blankets Creek” at 2:30.
and – 2 BIG oak trees are being taken out of my front yard this morning. I hope they don’t take out the phone lines by the dead tree in the middle of the yard (as in internet), and the main power lines on the street by the half dead tree.
My MIL cracks me up, she can’t believe that I’m not there. I was like -why take a day off to just watch?
Barb, what’s the impetus for removing the trees? Are they dead? Do they pose a hazard to the house? You want more sunshine on your lawn? Just curious.
Probably bringing bike to Cheesy Yellow.
The one is very dead we realized (its been dropping branches here & there every storm), so I called the guy that drops off the mulch to get an estimate. he just happened to have time today, & figured as big & dead as it is, why not just make it go away. If it did fall on the house (or neigbor’s house) it would suck. The other one isn’t as urgent, but the price gets better when you do 2 trees at the same time as doing them seperately. And, he gave me a really good deal, he likes that we take mulch off his hands so he doesn’t have to find a place to dunp it.
As for biking, you know I’ll be slower than you……..
I’ll be bringing a bike Sunday- don’t know if I’ll make the very early start- what would be a reasonable “wheels up” time?
Steve – you tell us on the wheels up time. And – how far, what time to get back? If people are running only for an hour or so, we don’t want to miss the cheesy eggs & bacon…….!!!! I know if Paulie is the designated bacon fryer (like he has been in years past), & he bikes, they will ahve to wait for us.
We could ride and let someone else take care of the bacon. I have a hard appointment at 3:30pm, so I guess that I will have to leave Enema’s a little after noon.
Barb, don’t you need to get a permit to take the trees down? Or are you too far out in the country? Those of us in CoA have to apply for a permit and it takes weeks.
My weekend was busy and tiring. Finally closed on the house in OP so I am no longer a homeowner! Yay! Peachtree was fun, I couldn’t run it but watching and drinking beer was just as good. Spent some delightful quality time with Martha at the Murphys’ afterwards. Saturday we got up at 4 am to go to a funeral in Durham, NC. It was short and no one stuck around so we turned around and drove back the same day. That was rough. Sunday was a wonderful day: slept in for the first time in two weeks, watched all the sportsing on TV (Formula 1, Tour, Wimbledon), watched the Braves at Midway all afternoon, then went swimming at the pool. Very relaxing.
Jenka – I live in a cool county where they trust their residents to do the right thing. HAHAHA. I would hate living in the CoA with the crap you have to go thru to take down a tree. (Martha probably should have had a permit for that little tree?) We could have waited, it wasn’t urgent, but Wesley had the time & he cut the price so I’d do it today.
I probably did need a permit for the little tree but the permit for my dead/dying cherry tree only took less than 2 days and the city inspector was ready to give me permit to take down the pecan tree as well, even though I didn’t ask for it. Now a healthly tree, that’s a different story.
Delightful time indeed! We never left the house after we saw you guys Sunday, it was a busy, busy weekend and we where done. Too much fun and sun for this delicate little flower.
I’ll be there Sunday, don’t know if I’ll ride or run…decision, decisions….Jenka, what’s your plans for Sunday?
