Yesterday was not good. I am sad, very very sad. And that’s all I will say about yesterday.

April 2022 will certainly go into my personal record books as one of my worst months ever. I am hoping that STU will turn the month around, but that’s asking a lot of it.

Today will be a busy day of doing laundry, mowing the lawn, WLF choring, taking a serious nap, getting ready for STU, and going to Betsy’s for dinner.

There will be a blog post tomorrow.
There will most likely be none on Friday.

Still haven’t heard about my blood test results, and am disappointed that I didn’t ask doctor about something else, which if persists, will require another visit.

Make it a great day friends, I will try to as well.

I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was DREAM

    Wordle in 3 with my normal starter of AISLE, which did me little good.

    I got home and relaxed for a bit, then hit the trainer for a half hour. I don’t think I realized the Netflix series “Sex Education” had released a third season, so started on that. Really funny.

    Debbie is loaning her truck and trailer to a friend to take her mare “on a date” at the vet clinic. The tire pressure light was on the other day and still on when Debbie got home late last night. I investigated and found one tire fairly low. After asking her what her plan was, I decided I better check it before I left this morning, and change it as needed. Fortunately, it was holding the air I put in last night, so I went back to bed at 04:00.

    I may have scored points…


  2. Ton of laundry now in the dryers. I just realized that this is the first time in April that I have done laundry.

    Skipped breakfast before leaving the house, I am going to be as hangry as I was after yesterday’s physical.

    I used your start word – took me all 6.
    AND – mini in 1:19 – great for me, but I don’t know if I’ll ever break 1 minute.

    Yesterday we quit trying to find a camper to rent – most of the people we tried to rent from just don’t answer the messenger service. We gave up – we will be tenting it.
    So Allan worked on packing the truck up, as he is working today. After being gone 8 days, I’m still not sure about taking Friday off. I still feel pretty crappy, I’m assuming it just allergies, so maybe I’ll call out sick.

  4. Back from the Waschsalon. I considered walking part of my Moonlite trail while clothes were in the washers and dryers, but didn’t.

    Now finally eating breakfast. After that it’s time to change into choring clothes to mow the lawn. Attempting to be completely overworked today, no idle time, unless I take a nap as I expert I will.

  5. Barb says:

    oh yeah – went to Tai Chi yesterday with Allan. Such a strange activity, but it was ok.

    I’ve done something to my shoulder, slept on it wrong, or I’ve got something wrong I’m afraid to ask about. Rotator issue? We will see if it gets better. Its been bugging me a little over a week, but it started in Spain with strange pillows, so I was thinking a sleeping injury.

    Not gonna address this to any one in particular, but if you’re feeling really sad for an extended period of time professional help really does wonders, and gives you coping tools. It can be as simple as taking a daily pill to get immediate help, but it doesn’t have to involve pharmaceuticals, nor does it have to be a years-long forensic investigation like it was for me. I’m good with the path I chose, and clearing out the anxiety that plagued me led me to getting diagnosed with ADHD at age 56. OMG, I sure wish I’d known about this earlier in life for so many reasons, but that’s just a nod to the past. The future is looking bright, I’m gonna have to wear shades. I’ve only been on meds for 3 weeks now but it’s mind-blowing.

  7. Bonnie says:

    I concur, today is going to be a very busy day. I’ve pretty much saved all the STU-related chores for today. Including bike maintenance and figuring out food. It’ll be more of a pain in the ass because lately the husband has been home while I’ve been camping, but this time he goes to work so I have to get the house all set up for the petsitter. Which also means it can’t be a dump…

    Bad shit’s going down with the fam in Oklahoma, but I’m still going to go to STU.

    • Good luck with the family issues. You know I, and probably Barb too, understand your situation.

      • Barb says:

        good reminder – I need to figure out when I’m flying to Iowa next.

        BTW Bonnie – since you can fly non-rev – are there ever seats available? where do you fly into? OKC or Tulsa?

        • Bonnie says:

          I fly into to Tulsa. That’s where my fam is. I don’t know about seats, I couldn’t tell you the last time I flew there. I used to drive from Memphis and I think I’ve only gone once since I lived here? I typically don’t fly non-rev much because flights are always so full these days, it’s more of a pain than it’s worth. We are buying tickets to France.

  8. Bonnie says:

    I thought I just posted, but if it doesn’t show up, there wasn’t anything exciting said. To add to my to-do list I still need to figure out the start to Monday’s Moonlight hash, as I will need to post the info whilst at STU. Preferably tomorrow.

  9. Have learned that I am getting Chico & Chang’s for dinner tonight. I love all Chinese food! Today would have been Betsy’s father’s birthday (Hitler’s too as I found out) so she is supplying food with which he would have approved.

    It’s 4/20, smoke ‘em if you’ve got ‘em!

    • Barb says:

      This made me think, I wonder if the stir fry truck will be at STU again? That was some good eating. We are bring hot dogs, brats & hamburgers, very basic camping food. And a lb of bacon, for Bob’s breakfast sandwiches – because, can we have too much bacon?

      I just don’t want to plan this year at all.

  10. Went to water a bed of turnips and a goddamn rabbit ran out of it as I approached.

  11. Bob says:

    Packing for STU is dangerous when you have a camper, I’ll bring way too much crap 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing you all Tomorrow!

  12. LUNCH BREAK! oh, two more words I can use as Wordle starts…

    Lawn mowed, some WLF choring done. Barb, six of the t-posts you gave me are now hammered in to make the frame for a nettes cage for one of my raised beds. Woot!

    Eating the last of my chili for lunch.

    After lunch I will start gathering STU gear. Unfortunately I can no longer pack the car overnight, so I will stage everything in my kitchen.

  13. Barb says:

    Periodontist checkup visit done – in June I get my implants! (not really excited, not having 2 rear molars hasn’t been too bad, but it will nice to have the teeth back there again.)
    Trying to figure out if insurance will cover any of this – need to make some calls.

  14. Steve says:

    Back from a walk through Piedmont- I was looking for flour but never saw any.

    Sorry about the fam issues, Bonnie. Hope it all works out.

    Somehow or other, Debbie had non-rev flight privileges she never used, as her dad was retired from D after many years.

  15. 2:00pm, showered, and now time for a thirty minute break and then, back at it.

    • Barb says:

      Breaking News – Michael should be there this weekend. We will have to get a ride to the Caboose for a pimento cheese & pepper jelly sandwich figured out.
      Vern is bummed he can’t be there (as he said – he still has a touch of the cancer).
      We may have to pack a “little Debbie cup”.
