It's a new day in my neighborhood

My days are filled with everything and nothing at all.
The world spins and things happen and here I sit. I am unable to almost anything right now. What a way to start a blog, huh? If you have wandered here, you are a glutton for punishment. Hopefully soon I can learn how to do this better and add more content.
Today is doggy day. Callie, our 8 month old beagle has to go to the vet for her boosters. She is supposed to go to puppy class tonight but with her on her 3rd week of heat, she can't go.
I have to call my youngest son's dentist and get the bad news that they will not take him for the surgery that he needs. I am very forgetful. I don't know why. Opinions are that it's because the ADD inattentive or the depression... even old age! Never the less, I forgot to pay the bill from his last visit. Now we need to find a dentist that is even half as good as that one. Kob needs his little toofers worked on.
I am still pretty upset by the vandalism of my bird bath. Why do people think that doing things like that are ok?
I am missing Aunt Kay (Kay Cheever) more than usual today. I was reading the SDknitters on Ravelry today. I miss the old house and the smell. Not just of old house but of yarn and clay. Who knew that my house would strive to smell like that?! More and more of her traits are showing up in this house. My knitting and love of yarn, my desire to work with clay, the garden and houseplants and of course, my Kay's diabetes.
Speaking of, I am so happy that our insurance will cover 80% of the cost of her pump, however, that other 20% is a lot more than we can handle. I guess I need a job!

Accomplishments today:

  • Shower, dress and teeth.
  • Breakfast and meds.
  • Rent check written and in the mail.
  • Get out of the house.
  • Vet and class visit.
  • Hang laundry on the line.
  • Get at least one inch done on knitting.
  • Fold clean clothes.
  • Put away the rest of the village.
  • Figure out how to make a resume and how to put the skills I have into business lingo.
