Lazy, Hazy, Crazy May 10, 2011Posted by Toy Lady in Home, random stuff.
It’s starting to get busy around here.
The weather’s (finally) warming up – looks like I’m going to get my garden in at long last.
I’ve been lazy. That, and really, who wants to be out planting spinach in the rain? Not raining this week, though, is it (much)?
Work is starting to get busy – because of the nature of Mon Capitán‘s practice (and, by extension, my job), from May throughout the summer, and then again at the end of the calendar year, we are often swamped – though the economy being what it currently is, it’s hard to say what effect that’s going to have on things.
Speaking of the economy – remember back a week or so ago when “the debt ceiling” was all over the news? You remember – how we’ve got to raise it, otherwise the government won’t be able to borrow enough money to keep itself afloat, or some such twisted logic?
Well, while I am all for taking the credit card away from Congress, that issue seems to be having some less than savory ramifications for a couple of our clients – a somewhat hairy financial thing which will, ultimately, make my life a little more complicated for the time being.
As if I needed that!
On the bright side, the Boy started a new, shall we say, interim job this week. It’s not what he wants to do – he trained to be a welder not a “customer service rep” – but it’s a paycheck, which, after being laid off for 5 months, is not a bad thing.
Then his car broke. I don’t exactly understand what was wrong with it, but he couldn’t drive the 15 miles each way to work like that indefinitely.
So. . . we took his car to the shop Sunday afternoon, he took my car to work for Monday, and I took Peeps’s car to work.
Peeps has Mondays off. Thank goodness.
With text messages between the Boy and me, then phone calls between the shop and me, we found the parts and got the car fixed.
The Boy got home, tried the car out (which I picked up for him) (and even gassed up for him), and came back less than thrilled.
I have no idea.
So. . . things are a little crazy around here for the moment. What can I say?
