Because I’m Hardcore

October 24, 2022
I made carbonara tonight. Noodles, everything, pressed into existence with my own two hands. I MADE freaking pasta! A lady in the store was making silly talk about quality control on the Halloween Candy. "Do YOU do quality control?" she asked me with a glint in her eye. "No, I have self-control."...

    Hasn't been a bad day. The sprinkler blowout guy called us just as we were heading into town. One less thing to worry about. NOLA became NO NO before I even had a chance. Hubbin said "do it" and by the time I was online to get the ticket everything was sold out. So much…

    Fall gives me the Fibros. Bleah! Whine! I'm painting the awful stairs and the thresholds at Camp Chaos. It sure must be a sight as I writhe and flail trying to get down low to do the fine work but that chocolate brown porch paint looks so good you want to lick it off your…

    A friend keeps having her rainbow flags stolen and her fence which is also painted with "acceptance colors" gets vandalized as soon as she paints it back. If that weren't enough she finally got the 'rona after all this time being careful. Of course, it was just as she was going out of state to&he...

    Yeah, 9/11 changed my life in ways I never thought possible. I thought I could do important work after that. It burned me out. Broke me physically. If you don't mind doing a thankless job for 10 years...well, enough said about that. My intentions were good. Too smokey to go outside in weather tha...

    I finally spent a couple of nights at the house in town. We're still playing "what's that smell?" It moves. It changes. It gets in ya. Worked so hard that I can barely move now that I'm back at the lake. Escaping to use Pup's shower was wonderful but I need to take my own…

    The night before last I was having a weird dream where I was trying to get my schedule figured out at the workplace where my sons actually work. I was getting really frustrated that nobody seemed concerned about this but me. By the end of the dream, I was just wandering through a big building&hel...

    At least it rained a little yesterday. The fall weather will drift our way in about a week. After 4 rounds of tree people next door, the neighbor found a guy with a work ethic who left us enough wood for a couple of years and got the tree removal closer toward finished. He's making…

    The Muskrats let the animals pee on everything. Still wet when we pulled up the carpets. Had to try to get the PM to understand we have to clean and seal the wood floors underneath before we can replace floors. We're not charging for the new floors we're charging for having to clean up the…

    Why do I call it the Bang Bang house? Because right now we're in "eff around and find out" mode with the former tenants. When they departed on the night of the 14th they said to the PM "We're going to have to go stay in a motel" my response to her was "well, I…
