Rain & moving………

I wound up going to bed early last night with a collection of a nasty headache, my belly was bloated, my chest felt weird, I was light headed and about ¾ sick to my stomach and I couldn’t hardly breathe……. jeez what a mess. I went in and laid down and hoped all would turn out well. I woke up sans headache (yay) I was breathing much better and my belly was telling me I needed to get out of bed……. right then, and there. A mad dash to the can…… [then] washed my face, brushed my teeth, combed what hair I have left – and came out feeling pretty much on top of the world. I guess a really busy day caught up with me, but I was sure glad to have it all behind me now…….. Walked out to another [weirdly] cloudy day with lots and lots of wind and rain. Furniture folks called and said they were waiting for it to quit raining, but they WOULD be here to get our stuff and deliver everything to our new place. Cool. I finally got through to the cable/internet people….. about 4 phone calls, 4 emails and a deposit of $120 and we have an appointment for them to show up Thursday to get our cable and internet installed. Also have an appointment to get a fresh cylinder of propane delivered some time this week….. ‘sometime’…. that should be interesting. Made an appointment to have DD 1.0’s oiled to get changed for tomorrow morning. Fast forward to 4:00pm in the afternoon (after being told “we will be there by 3:00pm) While we were waiting for the movers to get there, I noticed it was getting really stuffy in the condo, so I went to turn the A/C down a little bit – only to finally figure out – the A/C apparently took a giant dump……  DAMMIT EMMIT. Called the A/C guy. The movers finally showed up, disassembled everything, loaded into the truck and were off to the West end. About that time A/C guy calls me back and says he [amazingly] can come out right now…… DAMMIT~~~ Told him we couldn’t do ‘now’…. no worries – He’ll be there in the morning…….We grabbed a bunch of stuff to take with us…. jumped into the truck and headed out West to meet movers.

Got there, opened the place up and waited on said movers……. our neighbors were home…. usually at work but shut down because of the beer virus and containment efforts on the island. They joined us in drinks and we carried on until the movers finally showed up. They sat out on the porch with us and OOHed and AHHEed watching all of our new furniture being moved. I think Mitch was duly impressed when they hauled my 65” TV in  😉  Furniture finally in…only missing 2 pieces….. Oh so sorry – I will bring them out in a day or two….. No worries ( I was into drink # 4 or 5 by that point)….. so easier to get along with.. 😉

Neighbors finally went back to their place, and my Bride and I sat and discussed our new abode for a bit – before making our way back on dark, wet, pot hole ridden roads…… guess it’s a good thing Blues wasn’t open~~

Good Night Ya’ll @ @ @ @ @ @ @ @ @ @ @ @ @ Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
