Things

(1) I am reading stuff. But it's all trashy true crime, so, we'll skip that part.

(2) I had the stomach flu over the weekend and still feel crappy.

(3) Nevertheless, I climbed up on my roof on Sunday and cleaned off all the pine needles so roofers could come and give me a bid on resealing the flat part of my roof. Bid was humongous. *croak*

(4) We are moving to a new building at work on Friday. This will in no way be TOTAL CHAOS (/ sarcasm)

(5) I am taking an online writing class through a local community college. It is a LOT of work. Between that and the constant dental appointments (root canal, crown prep, crown...) I am feeling a bit stretched. Which explains (2).

(6) Mars! NASA MAVEN and ISRO's (India) Mars Orbiter now circling the red planet. September has been a cool month at least in that regard.

(7) Not prepared for new TV season. Just don't know when I'll have the time for any of it. Planning on watching Disney's Frozen as homework this Saturday, though. When did TV start having homework?

(8) Friend visiting in a couple weeks for OctoberFest. I hope it feels like fall by then, 'cause it doesn't right now. September is, traditionally, still summer here, except for the early mornings, which finally begin to cool down. We've been known to have 100+ in early October. I am losing my tolerance for this *&^%.

In conclusion, chocolate.

Get another bid on your roof. I got three bids when I needed a fix a few years ago. Two were fairly close to each other. Third was about triple the others.

I hope we'll be down out of the 100s soon.

I'm getting another bid in a few weeks. Roofers are swamped right now because of that rain storm a few weeks ago.

Do you have any companies you'd recommend?

Jeez, I guess I'd better watch Frozen too...I have no idea about the story line.

I know, right? I haven't watched a Disney movie in 30-40 years. Sure never saw Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, or any that came out since I entered adulthood. This time, though, the character is not supposed to be a minor character.

You kind of get used to the heat, or the lifestyle of living in it. And I did. Except now I'm a woman of a certain age, and that acclimation is reversing itself.

Class is keeping me busy. Since it's online, you only have a "presence" in the class by participating in the online board. And there's something due for it every Tuesday and Friday, even if it's just a reading response. *puff puff*
