bundled up, walkabout, snow

maybe it's the weather

What is up with this weather, anyway? Saturday it was 70°F, and now it's 18°F, with expected highs in the 30s. Sheesh

I just got really cheesed off on one of my lists.

One member (A) posted a request that people trim the quoted material in their replies.

Another member (T) posted that they'd try to remember, but since they don't use Digest, it doesn't bother them. And wouldn't A be better off if she would just sort her mail using filters and not use the digest option.


I really thought about just posting this reply in my journal and not sending it to the list, but this sort of thing really cheeses me off, and I couldn't be that restrained.

Mired in paperwork

I'm in the middle of paying bills. ick poo.

Before I left to pick up the boys, I updated the light bulb checklist, and on the way home, I picked up the EJ/BJ tickets and a slew of lightbulbs.

The tickets are free. The seats do not belie this. Not quite nosebleeds, they are upper arena, and in the section beside/in front of the stage. Section 212, Row K, Seats 17 & 18, if you want to look on this seating chart.

Critter is going to replace light bulbs after he finishes his homework. Tigger forgot his homework today, but he has a long term project that he can start on. He's working in the kitchen, and I've taken over the couch and ottoman, to spread out the paperwork.

No more excuses, I suppose...

The new list

I'm tempted to post a list of one item for today "paid bills". But that would be misleading, and of course, I did more than that...

  • Updated Light Bulb Check List
  • Picked up concert tickets
  • Bought light bulbs
  • Finished posting the bills
  • Chose bills to pay
  • Printed checks
  • Made list of errands for tomorrow
  • Calculated postage for Erosul auctions and sent information to auction winners
  • Send Flar a list of bills still owed or upcoming
  • Pick up a present for Tigger and a check for bowling from Knight's house
  • Bowl
  • Buy water & milk at Sam's
  • Get allergy shot
  • Pay property taxes at Sheriff's office
  • Mail bills at post office (and pick up another Priority Mail Shirt box)
  • Deposit checks at bank
  • Clean Kitchen
