New week almost same outlook..

Well, well, well…   here we are again Saturday and all. This weekend is slightly different from the others. No depressing basement that is flooded and rotting. not its only a basement that has not much in it.
Last weekend and Monday after it we had folks here to rip out the moldy walls and carpet. I was thinking some of it could be saved but soon realized that it all had to go.  :( IMG_2730 Resized IMG_2729 Resized IMG_2728 Resized IMG_2727 Resized IMG_2726 Resized IMG_2725 Resized

Well at least now there is no mold there there is also no beds and no furniture…  just a couple of fans and dehumidifiers but there is no moldy walls either! Now we just have to figure out how to separate the furnace from what used to be the bedroom.

And we are all done shooting trap in league..  not that the league has finished but we have shot all the rounds needed to fulfill the league. This year I      hope we will not be last.

 

What is new this weekend?

Well…  It started out by me on Thursday let my Boss know that I would be working from home on Friday if it was OK by him, and it was.

Come Friday morning and I try to get out of bed and I almost couldn’t. -
urlMy Back was so painful it was hard to breathe. I had been painful for last couple of weeks but now it was so much more painful. Barb told me that I could not whine about about unless I went and saw the doctor..   I called the clinic and got a time an hour after I called! Fast service.

The doc checked my back and said it was a inflamed or irritated muscle. To take painkillers and and take it easy. No irritating it.
Prescribed me some real good pills and sent me on my merry way.

To add to the agony of it all. The basement has been the bane of our existence for a while now..  Flooding every spring and fall and every time we get more than a misting of rain.

The sheet-rock walls are beyond saving and they have to come out. We hired some help and have them gutting the basement….   yup, you guessed it THIS WEEKEND!
We have huge dumpster in our driveway to receive the refuse. On top of this I really wanted to visit Les at the local campground as he got his camper out.

Stillwater Fireworks

Were AWESOME! Ok, so Miikka had to talk me into going, and I will admit I went mainly because he wanted to go, but Stillwater’s fireworks were the best I think I have ever seen locally. They really spent some money on them, but they were so worth it! Next year I think if they aren’t going off the same night as Hudson’s, we will have to bring Mya to them.

Props for Oldman!

I knew it! There is common sense in Hoolywood! This from MEDIAite:

Gary Oldman Rails Against PC ‘Crap,’ Liberal Double Standards in Hollywood

786

Actor Gary Oldman is more conservative, politically speaking, than most other people in Hollywood, and in a new interview with Playboy, he goes off on the political correctness that torpedoed both Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin‘s careers, as well as the liberal double standard in Hollywood over who gets to make jokes about whom.

Netflix…

How lame am I?  I am not really into our old tv shows right now, but I sure am into some series streaming on Netflix.  First, we watched every available episode of The Murdoch Mysteries and with that show we spread them out, but still managed to watch 7 seasons in a couple of months.  Then I really got into Orange is the new Black and devoured the first 2 seasons in a week.  Now I have started watching House of Cards and have watched the first 6 episodes in 2 days.  I’m hooked!  I am hoping I will get all tv-ed out, but then I will probably just read, lol.

Summer days with anxiety.

There is so little time to do all the stuff one has put off for the summer during the summer, yet the time goes so slow like when you were twelve waiting to become the mythological thirTEEN.

cant-believe-summer-procrastination-seasonal-ecards-someecardsMaybe i should put all this to context and the only way I can do that is to reflect on myself. First of all I am a procrastinator at times, well most of the time I guess. I can’t help it maybe it’s hereditary or just that I am always looking to chill out instead of doing the s#it that needs to be done. Continue reading
