Weekend Update

Well, another weekend has past. No, nothing earth-shattering happened, just a pleasantly productive weekend.

I started the day by sleeping in til like 10. I keep telling Rick he doesn't have to let me sleep that late, I don't get up to go to work during the week so I can get up early to spend the morning with him. But - I slept in til like 10.

I got up and showered and found that what Rick wanted to do was go look for truck parts at the junk yard. I'm always ready for a trip to the junk yard. But I , of course, wanted to look for stuff for my car. Recently I was playing in the parking lot of a local Home Depot and broke my driver-side mirror.

We started at one lot that was strictly trucks, then moved to other ones and back to the truck one. I managed to find a beautiful mirror to replace my broken one for $25. I also picked up a nearly new flashlight, a clip-on sunglass holder (looks like a cockroach, I need to "personalize" it) and a couple pockets full of nails.

We got back to Rick's, he installed his new bowtie emblem on his truck grill and I installed my new mirror. I then vacuumed my car. In the meantime I got a call from the jeweler that was rebuilding my mom's sweet 16 ring - it also was ready. I had the band rebuilt and had a catch repaired, it is beautiful and ready for more long-term wear.

All these are things on my "to do" list. It's dwindling and I'm finding myself with not enough to do. I'm getting bored and lazy. I guess I need a job. Something to do. I would be going out in service but at this point I can't.

We got back to my place and installed the pressure switch into my hot tub that I bought the day before. We did that and then the tub immediately began to heat up.
We had a nice dinner down the street at the Draft Choice Sports Bar, burgers and beer. Then we enjoyed our time in a soothing 105 degree hot tub.

All in all a nice weekend. Except for the Kevin episode. But that's another story.

About Me

My photo
After 2 unsuccessful marriages I spent 12 years as a divorcee, only to fall prey to another man's wiles. We had a fun 5 years together and then he decided he wanted more freedom so once again I'm single.

So I'm freshly divorced at 57 and have 5 great kids and now 7 grandkids. My kids are still a major part of my life but I'm busy helping my aging parents on Kauai.

I've lived in California, Hawaii and Oklahoma before finally settling here in Washington. I love Washington and come back to visit family, friends and take care of my garden often but will be temporarily a resident of Kauai.

I've moved 30 times in my life (no, my parents weren't in the service, at least not since I was about 2) and finally planted roots when I got my little house that I've owned since '91.

My family are Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been one since '72.
