Blog attempt 1.
|DAY 2 PROMPT
Today Andre's Banana Bar will surpass 14,000 views. Not that I keep track of that sort of thing; It's Andre, he's OCD about it. We are going to give 14,000 GPs to a randomly selected blog entry to celebrate.
We have a few entries into the design an award contest, but there is still time to enter. I'm looking forward to
having custom awards and ribbons and a new custom merit badge by late April. It would be pretty cool to have a designer credit on one of those awards.
The original custom MB will always be special to me, and I'm planning to give a bunch out in the next four days.
And because I'm all of a sudden making announcements instead of writing blog prompts
I want to give a shout-out to Ms. (556) Welcome back from rehab. *Sly*
OUT with the Old and IN with the NEW
My latest purchase is a Swift 3 14" laptop. The black screen of death consumed my previous laptop.
We may look into purchasing a travel trailer this summer. Okay, finally, here comes the prompt.
Did you recently make a significant purchase? (Gasoline doesn't count)
Is there something you have that has reached its end-life?
Are you planning any major purchases or changes to your lifestyle?
What's your take on this 'New Normal' we hear about?
We just bought a couch. Our old one met our cats, and our cats... took it out. It took them a year, but they shredded the arms and the front. Then the dogs took to eating the cushions. It is just... we NEEDED a new one. We ordered it a week ago and are still waiting for it to arrive. It should be here sometime within the next two weeks. That is as accurate as the eta is right now. I'll get to set up a delivery time closer to the date. At least that is supposed to happen. For all I know, they'll dump it on our lawn in a rainstorm.
Sorry, pessimism is kicking in.
This new normal is the weirdest normal I have ever encountered. No more handshakes or hugging strangers or friends you haven't seen in a while. I remember when you could tailgate in the store and not be treated as though you were typhoid Mary. The biggest planned change in our house is we are getting one of our dogs spayed next month. No more humping my arm... I hope. The vet is thinking it's a hormonal imbalance. Which is fine, as long as the humping isn't a new expression of her anxiety issues...
