Unexpected Struggle?

This week is more difficult than expected? There is no moon phase to be concerned with…at least that I know about? It’s not bad….just difficult.

Monday the big doctor had a shadow. I’m not even sure what medicine this kid is studying? I do know that I didn’t get home from work Monday until almost 7pm. It wasn’t my favorite thing but it rarely happens. I chose to stay because book club is Friday. If this happens on Friday it doesn’t matter, I am out at 5:30….I stayed on Monday.

Tuesday we were held up again but this time only by twenty minutes. The optician and I went to Blondie’s husbands calling hours right after work. This town is about thirty minutes away and I stopped at the grocery store out there on my way home. It was nice, there were hardly any people. The location that I frequent is much busier. I made it home Tuesday after all of that ….still fifteen minutes earlier than Monday.

Today I did a little running around and stopped at the credit union to talk about a loan. I should know by tomorrow. I went at the end of the day today because I took my uncle’s advice and contacted a dealer first….only time will tell if that was a mistake. We are supposed to get snow tomorrow and I hope the roads will be in tip top shape…a girl can dream, right? I have only had this Stratus during one light snow. I know how the Accord handled in the snow…this is frustrating.

Thankfully the girl is on Spring break this week so I didn’t worry about taking her to school. She spent most of the week with her friend who slept over. They were pretty good about being quiet or at least trying. Occasionally I would hear them throughout the night but I was lucky enough to fall right back asleep. The friend went home tonight and the girl went with her dad. They did leave me a sink full of dirty dishes but as Spring breaks go…..I’ll wash the dishes. They can stay up and watch whatever they want, and eat whatever they want, at least I know they are safe.

I did dabble in my genealogical research more than usual this week. It turns out that that info I found does apply. I am now stuck at William McCullough born in 1750 which is better than Benjamin F Franklin born in 1815. The census information is tricky and non informative for certain years. My favorite line on the 1840 census… “white persons-Insane and Idiots at Private charge”  Interesting….

I’ve been laying low, getting stuff done and reading the book club book. The weather is still ugly and depressing and I can only do what I can during this dark time. Spring is coming and I really hope it’s a sunny one…..Zia
