STILL not gonna let him in……

Well I said I would try to keep enough strength to get on here and let you know I didn’t kill myself…….. I didn’t, but I sure took a whoopin‘. WOW…… I’m trying to stick to the mantra, “Don’t let the old man in” ….. but after today I thought about it for a little bit. Holy Toledo……. I didn’t realize just how far and badly out of shape I am. Today erased any questions……. It’s been a hot minute since I did this kind of work and frankly, would like to think I won’t ever have to do it again….. but that is letting the old man in….. and I ain’t ready for that yet. So I’m gonna get me a hot shower to hopefully ease the throbbing in my back and then stretch out on the couch and/or bed and try to rest up for tomorrow. For reasons entirely to lengthy to go into here, I decided not to take up the old tile. A decision that I feel got better with every tile I laid. Had a host of other issues trying to get the job started. I should have known and expected that- but I was trying to be hopeful. Bottom line…. we have a brand new floor in our kitchen now. Tomorrow I’m gonna do the grout and Friday I should be able to put the appliances back in. For now though…… I have kept the old man at bay one more day….. tomorrow is another (hopefully easier) day.

I did find out we have a Wine Pairing scheduled for tomorrow evening and the boss would like me to shoot it…. so hopefully I’ll get the floor grouted early enough to be able to get a shower and get on the boat for the Wine cruise. At least it is out on our end of the island this time, so we should have a spectacular sunset for it.

Good Night Y’all . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 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~!!!! ;-)
