Important stuff all done

Tuesday, June 15, 2021

The tv box things have been taken to the UPS store in Mankato and dropped off and of course when I got home this afternoon the box they had been promising me since June 3 was sitting on my door step. Too late. My oil is changed and my tired rotated and my car all checked out for the trip. Those are 2 really big things that needed to be taken care of before my trip.

I completely understand how Jamer feels I heard that line about being taught better too. After both my sisters died I was the only daughter left. When my mom fell and had to spend months in a recovery home and my dad thought she had been gone a year I called my brothers and said we need to find them somewhere to go they can't be left alone anymore. My brothers did help find a lovely assisted living place near me and we got them moved but mom never went home again. They both lived in the assisted living place with me visiting every other day or so for almost 4 years. Luckily I only lived about 20 miles from them. When I had to have surgery and couldn't drive one brother came down and stayed with them and my dad kept calling and wondering when I'd be able to drive again because Jay needed to go home. I was gentler on them than my brother was.

Didn't do a very good job on eating today mostly because I did stop at the wonderful Bakerrie in New Ulm. And by the time I got home this afternoon it was hot so I settled on a chicken sandwich for dinner. I did just grab a fast good burger for lunch....Buck enjoyed part of that.

thank fulls
1. nice having a day off of my cleaning schedule
2. Buck was such a good boy at the dealer while we waited. He even let several people pet him until a big tall man tried.....then he hid under the end table in the waiting area.
3. took an interesting quilting class online this afternoon might have to give some of is a try when I get home.

Back at it tomorrow. If I work really hard I should be able to get 2 rooms vacuumed and the kitchen floor scrubbed and that will be good enough. I'll do my essential shopping on Thurs. and come home and do a bunch of random putting away stuff. There is too much sewing stuff just sitting around some of it could find a better place to live than on a chair in the living room. That leaves Fri. for packing and loading the car and off I go.

    So glad you were able to accomplish what you set to do today. Big relief knowing the car is ready for the long trip. I imagine shortly after getting home you will be pretty close for another oil change.
    Nothing much happening here today. Woke up today with pain in my lower right side of my back, spent a good share of the day just siting around with the heating pad, that felt so good.
    My dog just came over and was staring at me. So ask the favorite questions, she settled on going into the bedroom to sleep for the night. Which I will be doing also shortly. Going to bed early tonight as I need to get up at 7 AM so I can eat and get ready to head to the doctors office.

    Glad you were able to get the big, necessary things done today. I remember growing up that Friday was always cleaning day at our house and nothing could be left out of place for the whole weekend, in case we had company on Sunday afternoon. I think I grew to rebel from that because I keep things clean but not spotless with nothing out of place.

    We certainly have been raised quite similarly. So difficult to keep that out of one's mind. I don't think it ever leaves a person.
    I am glad you are getting the things done that you want. Keep up the thought of it your home and you live there however you wish.
    Friday is D-vaca day!!
