Big day yesterday.

What a day yesterday. I wasn’t feeling all that great for most of it. My sinuses are really acting up, and have been for several weeks now. Ugh. Makes me feel like crap. But the shed has power! It isn’t done, Chad still needs to install the other two outlet boxes, but the main outlet box for the kiln is up and working. I vacuumed in there yesterday without having to run an extension cord. I will get the lights connected shortly.

Ody is gone. :(  :) . Mixed feelings. I will miss her, but I am so glad I don’t have that responsibility any more. The check is on it’s way to my VT bank. I made a special trip to the post office last night to make sure it would go out in this morning’s mail. I didn’t want to have to get up and get it there this morning. I finally have a quiet day in front of me. Yay. No more phone calls, stressing about the sale, and the lack of funds. I am so glad I got pretty much what I was asking, now I can get started on my new camper. I tried to cancel the insurance online, but I will have to call instead as it wouldn’t let me. That is on my list to do today. I won’t get much back, but it will be enough to get something for the new rig. Might cover the cost of a battery.

I was Chad’s gofer yesterday. I made three trips to the hardware store for additional parts and correct parts. Paychecks were ready early, so I got mine and got it deposited. When Vicky (different Vicky) got back from Havasu with the check, I drove Ody over to her place and removed the plate. Then we did the paperwork, got it notarized and she gave me a ride back. We didn’t get all that done until about 4, so it was a long day waiting. Lake Havasu is about 75 miles away. That is where her bank is. 

Chad and SusAnn have gone to Mexico for the day, so he won’t get back to the electric until tomorrow. I am hoping today will be a normal, quiet day. I need to do things like vacuum and dust, get rid of my garbage, and putter. And nap. I wanted a nap so badly yesterday, but couldn’t get one.

I have a new turkey for my front steps. Lois and Rusty gave me one of the ones he made. I took them over a set of my cloth pumpkins. I have enough materials to make another set, and I really didn’t need two sets anyway. 

Visited with SusAnn for a little while yesterday. I have a ham in the freezer that is way too big for one person, so we are going to cook it this weekend. We meaning she….My contribution to Sunday dinner. That will free up quite a bit of space in my freezer too.

I may do the market/DG/Sal’s run today. I still have tomorrow if I don’t, but I am out of pretty much everything. Although, I could probably make it thru the day, I have enough stuff in the freezer to come up with something to eat. I might go to the food bank today. I haven’t been in quite a while. 

I did get two loads of laundry done before they shut down the water for the back flush yesterday, so I don’t have to do that today. I even got it all put away last night. I think that is the part I don’t like the most, is putting the stuff away. It doesn’t take that long, but I just don’t like doing it.

At some point I need to go thru my closet and weed out the stuff I’m not going to wear or that doesn’t fit. I bought a lot of stuff at Sal’s over the summer, some fit, some don’t. I need to see what I have for work wear. I’m glad I don’t have to dress up for my job. Makes it that much easier. And I should walk this morning. I haven’t yet this week.

I just found a 5x8 trailer on ebay that has already been converted…$2500. The problem would be getting it from Amarillo to here…13 hr drive one way. It is already insulated and finished on the inside with an AC/Heater, RV door, and a bed and table. That would save me a lot of work and expense. Will have to put out some feelers. We’ll see how it plays out.


  1. I'm happy tp read that Ody is now money in your account. I'm sure you felt like a thousand pounds had lifted off your shoulders.
