11:30 p.m….In the morning, I have to meet Rachael at the automotive place. The lights on their pick-up truck won’t come on. There’s a loose wire somewhere, because they use to be able to jiggle the wiring and they would come on. But now they won’t. So I’ll meet her there in the morning and take her to work.
3:40 p.m…..I almost got the front yard mowed a few minutes ago. It’s only got a little bit left. But the mower died. It’s got gas and it’s been primed. But it wouldn’t start again. I pulled that cord till the rotator cuff problems in my right shoulder screamed at me. But no luck. So I said to heck with it. If anybody complains about our partially mowed yard, they can just mow it themselves
That, and it’s just too darn hot out there.
My arthritis is really bad right now. I have both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, as well as fibromyalgia. Helping with the move has really aggravated it. The middle knuckle on my right ring finger is so swollen, I can’t get my ring off. And when you touch that knuckle, it feels badly bruised. It’s not bruised – it’s just the inflammation. It also won’t bend.
Rachael called a few minutes ago and said she just talked to the girl in the office at the apartments they have been living in for the lat 7 months. She found out that their apartment is fixing to have some major remodeling done. They are going to repaint, replace carpet, put in all new kitchen cabinets, and replace the washer.
They might have stayed if they knew all this was going to be done. They could have signed another year’s lease for only $50 a month more than they have been paying.
But there are bonuses to moving. They get a bigger living room area and bigger kitchen. They actually have a yard. They personally know the landlord. Not to mention, it’s saving them about $500 a month. And the AC works in the new place. Brandon was one of the techs that put it in, so he knows it works.
And in a year, they plan to try to buy a house.
