Today's good thing: I didn't sleep late today, and even accomplished stuff. After breakfast/brunch/lunch, I sat outside, and in between rain showers, I did stuff in the yard. And, as always, got the garbage ready for pickup.

Today's good thing: Squeaky and I slept just stupid late. It was nearly 11 when J came and checked on us. We got up and fixed a really late breakfast. After we ate, we went outside and J put together my planter/bird feeder/birdbath/solar light. I mixed up the last of my concrete and made a base for it, because it's a little top heavy. Then I planted a wild pink running rose bush I dug up at the old house, and did some more stuff outside. I planned to wash the outside cat beds, so I turned them inside out and got all the cat hair and dirt out before bringing them in. The smell of all the other cats drove Squeaky crazy. She hissed at me and wouldn't come near until I had a bath.

Today's good thing: work wasn't too bad. But.

We had a shrink meeting and our store manager told a story about how years ago his mom had an aneurysm and was in a coma for a while. That made me think of when Mama was in a coma years ago. I've been very emotional since. It's really cast a pall over my afternoon.

And all these people who wait until the DAY OF GRADUATION to buy graduation paraphernalia are as surprised we don't have any left as I am that they waited until the DAY OF GRADUATION TO BUY IT.

Today's good thing: work wasn't bad at all, except for the heat.

I had a customer ask me for pimple cream today. For a cat.

I had to stop by the Walmart over here this afternoon, and apparently all the assholes don't shop at my store. It was flooding when I got there, and there was an old man standing dead center inside the entrance and wouldn't move, even when I said excuse me. I shook water off my umbrella at him in response. He never noticed. I absolutely cannot concentrate that intently.

Today's good thing: despite being off 4 days in a row, things were not bad today. I'm sure I have Jenn to thank for that. In other news, it was hot as hell in the store.

Today's good thing:Squeaky and I slept late again, but didn't accomplish much today. I watched a lot of tv, did a little laundry, and planted a few seeds before it rained.

Today's good thing: Squeaky and I went back to bed after J left for work, and slept pretty late. Right up until Squeaky nearly gave me a heart attack by jumping on my chest.

I did lots of cleaning today, and finally got our memory foam mattress topper on the bed. We may need a stool to get into bed now.

I got to spend a little time on the porch as well, and saw a hummingbird.

I made pork chops, white acre peas, and corn pudding for dinner. The corn was so good!

Today's goods thing: aside from the aforementioned pharmacy party(to say goodbye to my favorite tech, Jennifer, who is going to pharmacy school), Squeaky let me sleep until after 8. And I had a short nap in my chair, too. After lunch I sat outside for a bit and potted a few plants. Now I'm headed to bed because I'm up way past my bedtime.

Today's good thing: I accomplished some stuff, but it's been a hell of a day.

Squeaky got me up around 6:30. I went to start a load of laundry - I don't know if I've updated about the water leak. It was the water heater, not the washer. The leak wasn't bad until today. There was like 3 inches of water on the floor. I hated to make J get up so early. He's been sick and his back hurts. But he got up and turned off the water and the breaker. I swept all the water I could out of the porch and mopped the rest. Once it dries completely, we'll figure out if the water heater is fixable.

I finally got a load of laundry on, hung it up and started another. I left J to finish it and I went to my uncle's.

When I got back over here, I picked up two more bags of concrete mix and finished the first phase of my project.

Then I had a much-needed, if cold, shower, we had some dinner and I am finally back in bed.

Today's good thing: work was good.

Today's bad thing: J went to the doctor and got his MRI results. For most people, a slipped disc OR a pinched nerve would be plenty, but not J... he has both. We're waiting for a referral to a neurosurgeon. Also, after me bragging about him not having a sinus infection this spring, he has one now.

Today's good thing: work wasn't bad, I actually accomplished a lot. But these customers... one woman was high/zonked on pain pills? She literally spent two hours in front of my vitamins, talking to herself, swaying back and forth... I was so glad when she left. Then, this afternoon, some annoying b***h on a cart wanted a certain fish oil, and I absolutely could not deal with her. I owe Kaitlin big for dealing with her.

Today's good thing: work wasn't horrible, and J finally got his MRI done today.

But y'all, Selina nearly had to pull me off an old man. He came up and asked us where the Glucerna was. Selina showed him where it was. He came back seconds later(he was on a cart, of course) saying, no, he needed the powdered Glucerna. It does exist, but we don't sell it. When I told him I'd worked there 8 years, he said I was a "rookie" and he says he's bought it at Walmart. He also asked where he was, and we told him Baxley. Hmmm. Anyway, he went away before I had to kick his ass and get fired.

Then, a woman comes over and is looking at my protein mod. I asked her if I could help her, and before she can say anything, lo and behold, here comes her husband. Guess who? It turns out they were looking for a protein powder, like a whey protein. The closest he came to apologizing was, "Oh, I said that wrong, I didn't mean Glucerna." No shit.

Today's good thing: I very nearly finished phase 1 of my project. I'm short about one bag of concrete mix. Speaking of which, I have to go back to work and get some rest. I worked my ass off yesterday and today. Between then and now, I have mixed up two 50 lb bags of concrete and six 80 lb bags.

I also got the garbage ready for pickup, and J worked on laundry again, and put away dishes.

Today's good thing: I got up earlier than I wanted to, thanks to a certain cat. I did nap in my chair for an hour, though. After breakfast, J worked on laundry while I went outside and worked on my project.

Today's good thing: work was not bad, and I got to see Ms Betty again.

I had typed out a whole rant about rude people in the break room and next door, but Facebook ate it, so you guys lucked out!

S4E21 "Harry and the Harrisons"

I really enjoyed this ep and I even enjoyed Amunet in this one.

The new Harrisons were so funny, especially the Matthew McConnaughey one.

Seriously, this is one of the best eps I've seen.

Today's good thing: another good, if busy, day at work. GM truck last night and a McLane's truck this morning!

But these customers! There's an old woman, on a cart, of course, who is in the store just about every day. She was there yesterday, and very rudely interrupted me while I was helping another customer, to make me help her. The other customer told me to go ahead, but if it'd been me, I would probably have lectured her about manners. Anyway, she was back today, so if she could limit her visits to say, once a week, or either get the keeper she desperately needs to do her shopping, that'd be great.

Then, there was an old man. I saw him while he was looking at the razors, and then at after shave. This will be important later. He caught me on the cough cold and allergy aisle and asked me to tell him where the Old Spice deodorant was. I offered to show him - - "no, just tell me, I'll find it." So I said, okay, it's actually one aisle past the razor aisle - - "Where is that? I haven't shopped here before." Um, the aisle you were just on? I had to ask him twice, wasn't he just looking at razors? When he finally agreed, I got him to understand it was on the next aisle.

Today's good thing: work was good.The hospital called and left a message, possibly to schedule J's MRI, and left a number to call back. I called about 6 times, no answer.

Today's good thing: we had a pretty productive day. I went to my uncle's while J worked on laundry and getting the garbage ready for pickup. When I got back, I worked in the yard a couple of hours, planting some marigolds and zinnias around the pecan tree. Then I fixed dinner. Still very tired and still feeling a bit icky(almost nauseous), so I'm headed to bed soon.

Today's good thing: we finally saw Infinity War. We didn't have dinner out(this was supposed to be our very late anniversary celebration), but brought our plates home. Neither of us felt really good after we got out of the movie.

I called my uncle to see if he'd be home tomorrow. It's my week to go there. He was disappointed I didn't come today. Since I started working five days a week, I am permanently exhausted. I'm not used to it yet. I can't keep up with anything around the house, or remember anything.

We finally saw it.

I'm sure some of these... issues... will be fixed in the next movie, one won't be and
No spoilers, but that was as hard to watch as Civil War.

I'm sure some of these... issues... will be fixed in the next movie, one won't be and that disappoints me so much.

Tony's face after Mantis said "Kick names and take ass."

Thor calling Rocket "Rabbit." Also, Rocket's prosthetic fetish came in handy, huh?

I expected Thanos to be a very one-dimensional character and was happily surprised.
