The topic: One more year!


Only twelve months of reformatting left! 2007! Then it will finally be fixed!

Over two and a half years, it will have taken.

Man, I hope I don't make that mistake again.

The topic: Well, at this point


I have twenty-two months to go. Today (so far - the day isn't over) I did fourteen months. I did all of 2008. It was rough, that's the year my mom died.

I didn't read the entries completely, but did skim over them. I was a lot more forgiving back then, it seems, because now thinking about her brings to mind how much more she cared about beer than me. I cried a little. It wasn't fun, it was hard to do, but 2008 on up is fixed. I've got two months of 2006 done. What's left is March 2006 through December 2007.

Tonight, I will take a Benedryl before bed so maybe I can sleep. The mosquitoes are not my friends. My blood keeps them living, but I wish I could take something that when the mosquitoes started sucking my life's blood from me, would be poisoned and die. Last night, at one thirty in the morning, I was online over at Amazon looking for something to repel them.

I need sleep.

And I want this weblog fixed.

The topic: We have annual passports to Disneyland


We renewed last October. Disney is deducting just under $65.00 a month from our checking account.

We've been a total of times since then just zero. Nada. Haven't gone up. At all. Miss Elizabeth was a big factor in not going.

I asked Brian yesterday if we were going to go again. He said we'd try to get up there at least once. For my birthday.

And then, we're finished with APs. Done. No mas.

And that's okay.

The topic: Fixing formatting is boring


It's more boring than paperwork. And it's time consuming.

I'm down to three years' worth now. The next year is 2008, the year my mom went into the facility and died six weeks later. I'm not looking forward to it at all.

I'm thinking I'll try to get at least six months a day done, stopping if I don't feel like doing more. 

Right now I don't feel like doing more, but I've put it off long enough. I need to finish this.

The topic: So, in line at Walmart


While Brian is checking out, I was standing behind him looking at all of the little things that you just know you need. Gift cards, lip balm, ear buds, lighters, you know, stuff.

Oh, and this. There was this:

Not that I'm into Mario Cart or anything, but look! Isn't it cute? It's a guy with a mustache in a yellow cat suit! 

I couldn't resist. I picked it up and put it on the belt. I walked in front of Brian. The cashier picked it up to scan. Brian said "oh, no, that's not ours" and starts to take it away from her.

Alarmed I said "it is, too! Put it back!"

Poor cashier was all confused. But I got my Mario Cat. He's right next to my laptop.

The topic: Commercial observation


For the erectile dysfuntion drugs.

Ever notice the difference in who they're obviously aimed at? The target audience, the men most likely to be on them?

Cialis has couples. People in relationships. Long term relationships.

Viagra has what appears to be high priced rent a dates. 

Just sayin'.

The topic: The crate door is open


Doors to the out are closed, but I think it's time for her to start exploring a little bit.

So far this morning, she checked out the water fountain in the dining room (she drinks a lot of water) and had a hissy fit at Pete, who was obviously wondering what the hell he did to get such a reaction. After she was done telling him to back off, she ran back into her crate.

Last I saw, she was standing at the door of the crate, looking out.

Oh, I have to share. When I fed her this morning, a new flavor of Fancy Feast, she was nomming away and she was purring. Poor little thing, probably so happy to still be getting fed on a regular basis. (She has dry food available as well.)

The topic: I have to share the news


I absolutely hate my washing machine. I love my clothesline, hate the washer.

It has no agitator. I didn't really how much difference the agitator makes.

Clothes don't seem to get as clean as they should. I just washed two sheets and a lightweight bedspread. The sheet on the top came out okay. The other sheet, when I hung it up, had all of this fuzz and dirt (?!!!?) in creases. The bedspread still had quite a few stains on it.

I hit the spread with Spray & Wash and put them back into the washer on high, pre-soak, and hot water. They're soaking right now. I just checked and the water is filthy.

Never again. I will never again have a washing machine without the agitator.

The topic: Only five more years of


Dear Diary that need to be reformatted!  Woohoo!  (Just finished 2011 - now 2006 - 2010 need to be done...)

How many years have I been working on getting this done now?

Over TWO AND A HALF YEARS!!! That's how long I've been working on it. I started with twelve years and ten months, so, I am making progress.....
