Changing your address is a real pain in the butt.

Was a pretty quiet day yesterday. I went to check Doreen’s mail, hit the regular post office and DG. Then of course, the last stop the Salvation Army. Spent two bucks. Got another pair of dressy light colored pants and an ironing board. The cover on the board is pretty nasty, but I found one on eBay for about eight bucks. I will actually have to try it out when it gets here. Now I supposed I need a full size iron. There were several under five bucks at Sal’s. I will take another look next week when they open again.

I had some lunch and took a very long nap. Not exactly sure how long, but I needed it. I had been in a funny mood all day and when I saw what the date was, I knew why. Exactly six years ago yesterday Jake was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. It was the day that changed our lives forever. 

Still having trouble with my debit card and change of address. They sent mail to my street address, and of course, it was returned because it didn’t have a PO Box on it. I have sent several documents for proof of ID, but since I don’t get utility bills here, I’m having trouble coming up with something they will accept. My debit card has been frozen. I had the same issue with my PayPal account a little while back. Changing your address is a real pain in the ass.

I don’t have much on the agenda for today. Vicki has to take Coco to the vet, I’m going to ride along so she can go in the grocery store. It is too hot to leave the dog in the car and you can’t take them into the store, so this is the best solution. I will stay with the dog while she goes in and gets what she needs, then vice versa. I don’t need much, just almonds and dates. They are much less expensive there.

Love my new radio. I put it up on top of the cabinet over the TV. It operates with a remote and doesn’t have any buttons, so that it the perfect spot for it. Up out of the way. I hooked in my ipod (thank you again Darrel!) and listened to my own music for the day. This morning I ordered some headphones for the iPod, going to try walking to tunes and see if that takes some of the boredom out of it. People have been doing that for ages, I haven’t tried it yet.

Today’s watering is on A street, an easy check since it is my street. But I need to get out there before the water on the surface dries up. That is the best way to make sure each tree is getting water. And I have to update one of the websites I maintain. That shouldn't take too long.
