20 degrees this morning at the Casa, good news is the first round of mosquitoes, gnats and other blood sucking vermin will be smote down, giving us another week or two of nice bug free weather. This is a good thing even if thousands and thousands of Minnesota flowers have been slain as well. The only flowers that I’m really worried about are the apple blossoms, which I’ve heard this morning, are in dire jeopardy. Supposedly there are helicopters flying over the orchards this morning trying to stir up the air and keep the frost from forming on the flowers.
Call me crazy but I blow on stuff to cool it down so this doesn’t exactly make sense to me, but then again physics is quite confusing to me. Lotta math there.
I haven’t been posting blogs with my usual frequency of late. I don’t know why either. Well, I do know why I’m just not talking about it. Ok, you asked, here you go.
So I’m obsessively worried about this stupid pontoon boat we bought last year for the low low price of 1500.00. For that sum we got a 28 foot, late model boat with a motor on it that I know have proof, was switched out at some point wither it was before the sale or not I don’t know but they guy I bought it from turned out to be a total dirt bag and now every time I look at the boat, I see him.
We’re in the process of planning to replace the carpet on the boat. I’m hesitant to believe this is going to work, I have no skills.
Which reminds me, the mower at the lake needs work too. I have no idea how to do it and this.. brings me stress. The mower at home doesn’t even start and it’s all just one big cluster of pistons and oil, none of which I understand or care much about except when it doesn’t work, which not much of it does not at the moment.
So I got that going for me.
Mrs. S and the kids are flying to Hawai’i this summer and I’ve been directed to find them tickets. I bowed out of the trip early on, I’m sure I’ll be way to busy at work to take a week off for a trip, and I’m not sure what the sleeping arrangements will be once we get there, and I don’t care too fly, and Hawai’i is a long way from home, and we’d have to board the dog and it’s $1500 a ticket and I don’t care to sit in the sun or go to the pool all day long and I don’t know if I can get email at Grandma’s house anymore (she has a new one), and.. gosh there are so many “ands” bottom line I don’t think I have a week to spare given that I have to take a trip to Alabama later this summer, and I’d rather see my kid off to school than go to Hawai’i.
This has caused less stress for me that I thought, and the plans are underway except. Since I’m not going the family can spread their wings a bit and not be constrained by my schedule have elected to stretch their week in the Islands to 3 weeks. So, if I look at the calendar right I’m going to have 4 weekends in a row this summer with no kids or wives around. Looks like I’ll have plenty of time to sit up at the lake and check out the pontoon boat which I’m afraid will still be sitting in our driveway come August.
And worst thing of all, I’ll have no one to complain too.
