It's about adventure! Life, Scouting, Family, writing what else is there?
|It's a been a busy week with a lot of drama. Lucky me. There's work drama that had me stewing in my tomatoes. I'm kinda over it, but it's lingering and I'm hoping for the best and I shared my frustration with my work peeps so not feeling like going over it again.
Then there's the ya gotta wear a mask at work. Believe me, I've no issues. I'll wear my mask. I got my mask back in March. It's a cotton mask with a NE Patriots design on it. I wear it everywhere. Well the darn thing has started to slink down my nose and show my nostrils and my supervisor keeps yelling at me to put the thing over my nose. I was getting mad when I realized, that the mask is "old" (only 3 months) and it's probably a little saggy. Lucky me. So I went to my mask lady and bought a whole bunch. I got a USC mask, a LA Clippers mask,and a happy fruit mask. Once I wash them, They are getting rotated and I'll retire my 3 month old mask. Until then, it's back to my Survivor buff from Ghost Island because it's always reliable. haha.
What kind of mask(s) do you use?
I get paid every 2 weeks on Wednesday. Payday! I LOVE payday! So every payday I go to Costco. They got everything you need in bulk. Shopping patterns have changed a bit. When the boys were young-lings, I bought diapers. Now, I need a meat aka steak, water, paper towels and toilet paper. I am MYSTIFIED at how they sell out of toilet paper and paper towels every day. How does that happen? And then don't get me going on Lysol and Wipes. I can't find them at Costco. I can find Wipes at Smart N Final and I have to pay my co-worker to get Lysol aka like the black market or the Hob in District 12. I guess I should troll Amazon more often for the Lysol. I just saw that I can get a 2 pack for 33.00 and have it delivered by 28 JUL. haha. HOWEVER, I just broke down and bought a portable UV light off of Amazon. It's suppose to arrive today when I get home.
I like to troll the book section in Costco because you can always find a gem there. And I like to get my work jeans there. They sell Gloria Vanderbilt pants there which I find fit me well. I like the shrimp packs, and the vitamins section. They have good dips there, too. I like to get my raspberries there, too.
Of course, I'm a sucker for free samples which have been lacking thanks to COVID.
And we've gotten some nice TVs and printers from there.
I pay for the Executive Membership because I usually buy enough through the year to pay itself off.
Any Costco fans out there? What do you like to buy at Costco?
I was able to update one of my short stories, "Young Witchcraft," which I'm thankful, for. Since I have extra time since I'm not scouting. I'm hoping to update my writing. I'm trying to find a home for a couple of stories/novels that lost homes when Victory Tales Press and Desert Breeze went out of business. My progress has been slow since I've got a bunch of other stuff to do, but it's nice to find time here and there to work on it.
The other "big" thing I did this week was coordinate with All Bright Painting to get the exterior of our house painted. We've owned our house for 20 years and it's time. The paint job is looking a little haggard. A lot of other houses in the neighborhood have painted and they look fresh. We look old. So... we got our estimate (5995.00) and saw the color lady who updated our colors and took the "pink" out of the paint. Not sure what happens next. I'll sure I'll find out next week. But it is exciting to think the house will look fresh again. We got an estimate to stain our patio cover which was 6700.00 (more than to paint the house!!) so Mr. Bee decided to do it himself. Him and big boy Bee are sanding today.
Well, that's my week. How was yours?
