Tuesday Morning!

I have my "recovery" day off and I am already thinking about all I want to do. LOL

Trig- URghhhhh on the hoarder house clean up. Sorry! Use a mask and open up windows if you can get to a window! I would hate for ya to get sick. Although it seems your head is a clogged mess from grass. Are you allergic to mowed grass???

Ya you and I lost that "baby" bet- the 11 & 15th have come and gone!!! WTH?!?!?!?- LOLOL Poor momma! LOL

Speaking of birthdays, sounds like the "kiddo" enjoyed hers. No more collage drama?? The mean girls club is a real deal thing. I can tell you it doesn't EVER go away in a workplace. I love working remote for a reason!

Did you get your RV all fixed up? All that????? LOL

Lori- You playing today? Back to your routine? Sounds like just when you get all ready to tackle the knee it got better! Way to roll that one!

Speaking of all that, the doctor who bought B house....... Did he fix it up or anything? I have wondered what he was going to do with such a big historic house.

Nic- I am feeling for your poor DD! Anytime now! LOL I know you are anxious. I would think they would induce about now. It has to be BIG by now!
Bets on size? I am now going with 8.5 pounds.
Keep us posted. I am thinking about ya'll!!!!!!!
--------------------------------------------------------------

To do List for today
oil change!
car wash
stop by DS house to see new furniture - quick stop
UPS store

Roasted Chicken I had Spatchcocked.- to get seasoned and popped in oven. It is the BEST way to make an entire chicken. So juicy when you put butter under the skin! YES PLEASE

Open windows, crank music, and enjoy a summer like day for the few hours left! - Back to the GRIND tomorrow. Insert sad face!

That is it for here. Errands and relaxing -
I bought some Rum for Charleston and never opened it. I have some for here! I might crack that bottle. It is Captain Morgan Spiced rum. I add it over ice and a touch of Pellegrino for fizzzzz

Rock on kids!

Good Afternoon!

I can't believe I forgot to post this morning! I had to get ready for golf a bit earlier today, so my morning just got away from me. Beautiful day on the course.....now I'm off until Saturday. Stuff to do for the next couple days...all good.

Some financial stuff we have to deal with on Friday. We had an appointment etc. and then DH comes in and says he can't make it at that time. ARGHHH!!! Just called the financial guy and he said if we can come at 9AM, he can do it before he has to be somewhere else. It is date sensitive, so has to be done on Friday. Just when I think I have all my ducks in a row, DH comes in and throws a kink into the system!

---------

Nic.....Still waiting for that baby news!!!

Trig......Good luck with the dumpster and all that mess. It'll get done somehow...one step at a time.

Jaz.....I'm sure it'll be tough to get back in the work grind after a few wonderful beach days.

----------

That's it from here. Crab cakes on the menu tonight. I buy them frozen at Aldi and just saute them once thawed. They're really quite good. I'll make some rice for DH and some air fryer Brussels sprouts for me.

Later!

Hi all-

Checking in a bit on the late side this evening. Had a very nice day, seven mile hike that sort of kicked my butt and then dinner out w/ DH , K and B. I think K is pretty darn close- she was having some contractions, lower back pain etc. She has an appt tomorrow. Bella also has an appt to get her eye checked in the morning, just to see how it's coming along.
Hugs, all. More tmrw unless I can't!

Good Morning!

I missed the birthday too!!! Hope it was the happiest Nic!

Had a good time playing golf yesterday.....no more of that until Saturday. The weather was beautiful! The weekend will be cooler, but we'll still be out there.

Today DH will go to work for the morning and I'm just going to putter around doing laundry and making a grocery store run. My cleaning lady will come around Noon and I'll clear out to Starbucks or something so I'm not underfoot. I do want to talk to her about some special cleaning products I want her to use on the new floor etc., and then I'll take off.

Not sure what we'll do for dinner tonight. I'm not feeling it. I'd like to go out, but I'm really trying to keep my calories on the low side. It's a conundrum for sure.

Have a great day everyone!

Jazz you driving that far for work? 2.5 hrs one way for what?
wow ain't a fan of that as I know you ain't either LOL safe trip

--------------SO GET THIS AND horrible.
we started at back side door near washer/dryer on enclosed back porch to open up that area for more travel.........tons of clothes piled up there.

we got top handled a bit-----don't even ask how the ICK was making me at this point truly -----and we get toward bottom and hubby shovels in a pile and a friggin' gazillion ants surface. Right into a monster nest inside the house!!!!!!!!

So I freak. done deal here right? hell yea

so home now while hubby hits store for massive bug/ant killer chem crap to handle this and I am floored we barely touched an ounce of what has to go down and this is what we encounter? WORSE FROM HERE? I BET MY LAST DAMN DOLLAR TRULY IT WILL GET WORSE and I tell ya, if it does, I am telling hubby do it alone or hire a 'real hazmat' company and crew. I will be so over it cause hell I am SO OVER it right now

I can't tell ya the thoughts running thru my head right now.

and GWT THIS TOO, water was shut off and we tried it back on and nothing.....hubby checked the well and massive crack in top pipe so water is gonzo. He called plumber guy that works on it all the time.

Again, SO OVER, damn straight I am and we didn't get jack really done at all.

OH AND GET THIS ALSO----another possible big kill me.
that singlewide trailer and acres that is 1/2 owned by MIL and her Sis Sarah, he called Dennis her son, (they get along great) and que'd him in on selling it and Dennis agreed, but hubby gets a text this morning----Dennis said talked to Momma and you will have to call her directly. I am out of this entire situation.-----------HUH???

so I say to hubby WTF? and he says well Sarah is nuts and I said I know that but how bad is it with Dennis, he says OH HE hates her---???----huh?? I never knew this to this level? omg

so I told hubby text back to Dennis what did he discuss with Sarah so at least we know what the hell we are gonna be dealing with. Key being it is either forced sale or she pays 1/2 fair market value to own it herself.........so this might be a family trainwreck coming down the line. (I never knew Dennis was like this with him Momma? But hubby told me a few things and I knew of them but never heard of the part where Dennis is in a state of leaving her by the wayside etc and not getting involved anymore with her? UGH I tell ya, like a friggin' hole in the head

when this goes down between The Chop and Sarah I will let ya all know the crazy of it, I am sure it will be frightening in some way. (Sarah is worse hoarder than MIL, if you can believe that)



over and out GAWD

so reading this, does it makes everyone's life seem a TAD BIT great right now vs. the crazy going on here HA HA I hope so, value the good great days vs the stupid that is evolving around me right now

Good Morning!

Another rainy, blah day here. Do we have an actual birth-day to celebrate today Nic????? I know things were happening and now we're anxious for news!

I get a hair cut this afternoon and have to stop at the grocery store for a few things....that's my day. DH has a dinner meeting, so I don't have to worry about dinner for him. I need to get some exercise today as yesterday I did zero. It'll either be a walk or a Pahla B. video.....depending on the weather.

-------

Trig......OMG.....I can only imagine the mess you are dealing with. No telling what kind of critters you will uncover!

Jaz.....I'm sure you had a LONG day yesterday. That's a lot of time on the road!

Nic.....Can't wait to hear all about it!!

-------

Bye!
