Tuesday already? Goodness! This week flew by. We had a little bit of blue sky...
...but mostly this--clouds and drizzly rain.
This morning the clouds are gathering again but our prescient weatherfolk say mostly clear and not much chance of rain.
I have been dealing with a crazed automatic garage door since Caroline and I were out there last Wednesday to get my fans. Every day they told me it was fixed and every day it was still jerking and totally uncooperative. Of course, this was all happening while Leah had brought over a borrowed charger to try to jumpstart the 92 Paseo that has been dead in my garage for over two years--so Leah and/or I were in and out every day. Once I had to go to the office to have somebody manually close the door for me (too short to reach)...
Let's just say that there was a tow truck involved, I still can't use my garage, they said they were calling the garage door opener people Monday but I haven't heard anything yet and just left a message at the office this morning requesting information as to door status...but look who is sitting in the parking lot!!
Little red Pita Paseo made it over here under her own power on Saturday! She had her oil changed, a new battery, and new battery connector cables. Dagan found a baby mouse poop in the kleenex box I kept on the passenger seat.
OMG! I might have mice in the garage! No eyes were laid upon any of the darlings. I dearly love mice (just ask my dad--we had a live trap vs. killer trap contest going in the basement when I was a kid) and would hate to have to hunt them down, you know? They could have left two years ago for all I know. Let's hope they stopped by briefly and are long gone, right? I may love them, but they chew everything!!
Anyways, Dagan and Leah picked up Pita Saturday. Then they picked me up late afternoon and I spent all evening over there (and forgot to bring my camera or to take pictures with my cell--duh!--even though Leah and I discussed a belly shot at one point). I got to see all the baby stuff scattered about from the three showers and the used goodies they bought from her sister and a friend. Yup! We really need to work on getting the baby's room set up now that Leah's sister, Ariel, just recently moved out and off to Minneapolis.
Oh, they have been setting up the guest room, though.. They have another beautiful high double bed in there that they said I can use if I stayed overnight. I told them that I would need a stool. They didn't believe me. Well, I proved it to them. Just be glad there's no video of a short fat lady having to jump and kick and roll to finally make it up on the bed--ROFL!
They also got the new recliner in their living room...and I love it! I'll have to remember to take some pictures next time I am over.
Leah was busy running errands yesterday. I have Cashwise coming today and D&L have company tonight. I just got a call back from the office a few minutes ago and they won't be here until probably tomorrow to fix the garage door...and now I had to tell her that my garbage disposal died, too. Luckily she said the disposal probably only needs to be reset. I hope that's all it is...but now I have to wait for him to come for that, too. So, I'm not sure when I will actually be able to drive Pita again over to D&L's. (Yes, I drove her home late Saturday night--and the windshield badly needs a cleaning so I have paper towels by my purse.) I don't need to be here when they fix the garage door, but I want to be here for the garbage disposal, you know. (Karma would freak!) Hopefully I will be able to make it over there tomorrow if all goes well. :) :)
In the meantime...
Karma using the hard arm of the desk chair for a pillow.
Her 20 hours of sleep have been interrupted lately by all my up and down activity--LOL! My craft table is a mess. Can you even see my thermal mug for T Stands For Tuesday? I have letters I'm answering, onesies to draw on, Christmas cards to stamp, journal to write in, youtube videos to watch, emails to respond to...and some stuff is just sitting there because I haven't made room yet to put it back in the bedroom.
The bedroom. I know. I wanted to do the living room next, but it was soooo bad I couldn't get to my bookcase and barely get into my dresser to get socks--LOL! I forgot to take a before shot--so this is a "during" shot. I've been sorting, cleaning, and moving things little by little all week.
Everything is a long, slow process for me anymore--LOL!
But I have made a lot of headway and I can tell I will really like using the old shoe rack for more shelving up there on the dresser.
Oh, I've also been watching the Ancient Aliens series as the DVDs arrive from Netflix. Absolutely fascinating to me. (I have always found it quite arrogant and egocentric of us to believe we are the only intelligent life forms in the universe.) And Leah cut my hair for me Saturday--ahh! I think that's about all I can think of from this past week. Just glad my AC worked--LOL! It went from chilly to hot up here practically overnight.
I will be thrilled to see familiar groceries entering my abode today. Whew!! In fact, they will be here any time in the next two hours, so I had best move my behind. Hopefully I will post again before a whole week gets past me--but you never know--LOL! ;)
