Wednesday Weirdness #286

A small trim piece on my car got broken while we were on our road trip this weekend. Unfortunately, I will not be replacing it any time soon since it is only sold as part of a much larger assembly that cost several hundred dollars. It makes no sense that such an easily breakable piece is not sold separately. I highly doubt anyone is spending several hundred dollars when all they need is a small piece of plastic.

Monday Monologue #286

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • It snowed all the way back from our weekend road trip! It really doesn’t seem like mid-April.
  • I’ve got our tax returns ready to mail on Tuesday. We always owe and never get any money back and this year is no different. But, we are glad to have the extra day to keep our money.
  • All of the rain has been good for the grass which really needs to get cut. Hopefully it will warm up enough so that it will at least feel somewhat spring-like when I’m outside mowing the lawn.
  • I found a new gym to box and work out at. So far, I like it much better than the gym I use to go to.

Friday Featurette #285

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionThe Wife and I are taking a well-deserved vacation this weekend. We are heading south and are looking very forward to seeing some sun. Its been a long winter (and doesn’t seem quite over yet). Have a great weekend. We’ll see you on the other side.

Wednesday Weirdness #285

The March Energy Report from our smart thermostat says that “In March, your heating ran 31% more than last year”. Last March was unusually warm. And this March was unusually cold. So, obviously, we expected a big difference. But, actually seeing the report was still somewhat depressing. The cold, wet, dreary winter weather seems never ending.

Tuesday Two For #285

The Wife getting The Husband ready for actionThe Wife is still slightly sick (as am I) but every day we get better. Having a spring cold isn’t any fun. Especially with the winter weather we have been having. It certainly doesn’t seem like the second week of April temperature-wise. We’re hopeful that spring weather will arrive soon. Our normal spring/summer schedule seems almost like a dream.

Monday Monologue #285

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • For the second Monday in a row, we woke up to snow on the ground. It all melted by the afternoon. But; it was still not the preferred way to start the week.
  • I did not cut the grass today like several other people in our neighborhood. Mowing the lawn on the same day it snowed just seems slightly odd.
  • We watched a spectacle type movie this weekend. That’s our preferred genre to buy on Blu-Rays. The movie was what you would expect. But the special effects were great.
  • I am getting really tired of getting muddy shoes every time I walk around outside. It’s rained so much this spring that the ground is still oozes mud even when it hasn’t rained or snowed in a few days.

Friday Featurette #284

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionI got my broken tooth fixed. It didn’t take too long once I actually got in to see the dentist since they have one of those super high-tech machines that mils a replacement out of a ceramic blank right there in the office. I still had to have the rest of the broken surface drilled out. But, the new one was made from a digital image from a camera-like 3D sensor. Much better than the traditional process. So, even though I am still slightly sick, I am feeling much better than everything is repaired. Have a great weekend.
