And That's That

* It was an incredible week. The weather was fabulous and I walked at least 10,000 steps every day. Keeping up the streak is an everyday challenge. I'm up to 8 days in a row.

* Not sure if I told you but we are down one chicken. No more rooster roaming the yard. He was fun to watch and incredibly beautiful, I didn't even mind his 3 am crowing, but the liability was just too much. We didn't feel like our grandkids (or neighbors) were safe with him about, and I don't think I should have to carry a broom around my own yard just to feel safe.

* I interviewed for a job on Thursday and was hired. My new supervisor gave me some "homework" which I have pretty much finished. Paperwork and stuff. Got my fingerprints done yesterday morning, picked up a money order for my background check, and sent in my references. Monday morning I'll have a TB test done and get it read on Wednesday before I go sit at the nursing home with G, and that leaves just a few papers to bring with me on Thursday when I get started.

* Today I am getting my brakes fixed. Can't wait until I don't have to wince every time I have to stop. And since The Cabinet Maker is going to play Auto Mechanic at Hannah's house, maybe I can give my little grandson a squeeze or two as well.


  1. I think you'll have no trouble getting in many, many daily steps with your new job!
    To be honest, I think we shall miss your entertaining tales of time spent at the nursing home. But no doubt, there will be tales of a different variety forthcoming!

    1. There will be new tales of entertainment. I shall purpose to carry a pen and pad of paper to write the funny things small children say, providing they are able to talk.

  2. ...wishing you the best with your new job.
