Todays Work

OMG What a day this has been. Ok so right after I blogged this morning saying what I was going to do I got up and got dressed and got my bus pass and went to the bus stop and as I’m walking towards it the bus going the opposite direction passes me which means the bus I needed to catch already left. The bus I needed always comes before the bus across the street. I look down the street and see it way past the grocery store. All I see is the back of the bus. So I figure I could either sit here for 20 minutes and wait or I can go back home and get on my bike and ride there.

So I rode the bike to the mall. I get to the Sears Key booth which is like a little building a little bigger than an outhouse lol. I hand the lady the keys and say I need 2 copies of each. I wasn’t paying any attention to what she was doing. I pay, she hands me the bag with keys and I get on my bike and head home. On the way home something hits me. The price is like $2.59 for a key (yeah I know, when did that happen?) and she said they had a special buy 3 keys get the 4th free. So I’m thinking great, I’m getting 8 keys done so 2 of them are free. But when she charged me it was like $10 something. I didn’t think anything about it because I’m just happy the price isn’t really high. But as I’m on my way home I think about it a little more and realize that 3 keys would be $7.77 right? I also bought these 2 .50 cent keychains to put the sets of keys on. So I pull over and look in the bag, there are a total of 4 keys in the bag.

CRAP! I gotta go back there. Luckily I hadn’t gotten too far away from the mall so I went back. I got back to the Sears Key outhouse and I have to wait in line because there are now 2 people standing there. I finally get up there and tell her “I said I needed 2 copies for ALL of the keys on this keychain and you only made 2 copies of only 2 of they keys. I need then ALL copied”. She apologizes but of course I get no discount. Whatever. Total I paid about $18 for keys OMG! Good thing 2 of them were free.

So I get back home and by the way that counts as exercise lol. So anyway hehe. I get back home and start right in on my “chores” for the day. I clean the patio which took maybe an hour, maybe 2. I also hose the back yard too because it was dusty. Oh and I opened the side gate and the neighbor used his blowy gardening thing to blow all of our leaves in OUR yard over into a pile. I guess I can appreciate that because I just have to shovel it in to the green can but on the other hand who asked him to do that? When he did that most of the dust and dirt got in my back yard. UGH!

So I’m done with the patio and the back yard. So I go to the garage and start moving boxes in there to make some room for the boxes from the shed. It doesn’t take very long, I had to sweep the inside of the garage first. So then I put the lawn mower and the pressure washer inside the patio so nobody would steal them in the driveway. I then start carrying boxes with the dolly from the shed to the garage. What back breaking work that is especially with all the crap we have. Plus my dolly had 1 flat tire. Just a bike pump doesn’t work, you have to use compressed air to put air in a dolly tire, well at least ours anyway. There is no inner tube, it’s just a tire so the compressed air forces the tire against the metal wheel. But if you hit a bump the air comes out and you are left with a gimp wheel lol.

So I get most of the boxes into the garage and 3pm is coming so I decided to take a 1 hour break to watch Stargate SG-1 and to rest my breaking back and painful heels. When that ended I felt better enough that I could continue for a little while longer. I go back to work and I quit for the day at 5pm so I only had 1 more hour in me. But the good news is that I got about 90% of the shed into the garage. Unfortunately now there is absolutely no room in the garage now lol. That means we gotta really go through our junk and get ride of most of it. Use it, sell it, trash it, maybe burn it lol.

At least I made an easy path to the Christmas tree and the Christmas decorations boxes. Which remind me, I found 2 more Christmas boxes so this year we will have even more crap on the tree lol.

My back and my heels and legs are in SOOOOOOO much pain right now. I need to get to bed. Later.

Busy Day For Me

I hadn’t planned on doing anything today, just resting my legs for tomorrows bike ride but then something came up.

Our new tenants are moving in tomorrow and there isn’t very much that Darrin can do over at the little house because of his job.  So, he had me go to buy some keys for the new tenants, 2 copies of 4 keys.  That’s fine, I was going to take the bus but I decided to ride my bike instead so I got some exercise in today.

But then he dropped the bomb on me.  Our shed is filled with boxes and furniture.  Well, the new tenants want to use the Shed and Darrin told me that he told them that we have our stuff in it.  I told him in all fairness that shed does belong to that rental so they should be able to use it.  Me and my big mouth.

So, today (right after I click the publish button) I gotta go put our stuff from the patio inside the house then hose the patio and hose our back yard too because our lovely neighbor blew all of our dead leaves from our grapefruit tree all over the place to make a big giant pile for me to shovel into the green cans.  I guess I appreciate it but I would’ve liked it if he didn’t get all the dust and dirt all over my back yard.  Anyway, off topic hehe.  I have to hose our patio and back yard.

While the patio and back yard are both drying I gotta move a piece of furniture from the living room to the bedroom (it’s a dresser and there was a dresser taken out of the bedroom so this is just going to be put in its place.  Then I gotta start carrying the boxes from the shed to our patio which is the space between the house and the garage.

Once all the boxes and furniture is in our patio then I gotta start pulling the stuff out of the garage and going through boxes to see if we need any of that stuff then start stacking boxes from the shed in the garage with our other boxes.  UGH!

I just ate a Tigers Milk energy bar so that should give me a little bit of energy.  Plus I got some coffee already brewed and waiting for me.  I’m taking this time to blog to rest my legs from that bike ride to the mall and back before I start this BS mission lol.
