Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I was hoping yesterday's plumber would disagree with the first one, but no such luck, so it looks like we're going to have some repairs done here, starting later next week. It could take 1-5 days, so I'm looking at a lot of time spent in the kitchen, on the porch, and hopefully in the garden, as I keep my distance. Don't think it's going to impact us hanging out together, but I'll let you know if that changes. I asked BDH and Little Buddha if they wanted to supervise, but they might... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you doing? We've got another plumber coming this morning to hopefully take care of our repair issue. We didn't really trust the first one, so hopefully this guy will be able to fix the problem, in a manner that respects social distancing, and maybe not blow a huge hole in our budget. Fingers crossed. BDH and Little Buddha say the important thing is that it gets fixed, and we'll figure everything out after that. They also want all of you to know that they made a fresh pot of coffee. Grab yourself a nice... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all still hanging in there on this end. There isn't a lot on the to-do list this week, apart from dealing with a home repair which needs to happen soon. Fortunately, the weather looks good for a couple of days, so at least we can hang out on the back porch and check out the garden for a bit. Other than that, it's mostly about social distancing and trying to do our part to not make anything worse. BDH and Little Buddha just made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We're all doing okay on this end at the moment. I don't know how I'm going to keep BDH and Little Buddha occupied today, but they're pretty flexible, so we'll figure out something. They'll be happy just listening to the chirping birds. Speaking of the guys, they just said the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Saturday Clutter. Donald Trump notified Congress last night that he is firing Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, the man who initially... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Congratulations to all of us for making to another Friday (although the days are starting to blur together a bit at this point.) Yesterday was a little rough here. The plumber came to fix the clogged sink, and long story short, there's a much larger problem which needs to be addressed pretty soon, and I wasn't prepared for that news on any level. That, and not enough sleep, set me on a bit of a tailspin for rest of the day. The lack of sleep is probably what really drove it, so BDH... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Things are generally okay on this end. I tried to fix a clogged drain yesterday, and while I get an A for effort, I get a hard F- for results. That means I need a plumber to come take care of this issue. That's great. I guess I'll just stand in the dining room while he works in the kitchen. Other than that, things are fine. BDH and Little Buddha only have one new book to read right now, so I need to take another look to see if I can find them... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! We finally made it through March, which was 900 days long this year, so good for all of us! We usually like to come up with an April Fool's Day joke around here, but I think we'll skip it this year, since April could be even longer. How are you doing? Are you sleeping okay? These days are exhausting, so we usually fall asleep without an issue, but there's been this recurring waking up at 3:00 issue which is getting annoying. Most times we fall asleep again, but it's that kind of disrupted sleep which isn't... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all okay at the moment. I need to go grocery shopping when we're done here, and that now comes with a mild level of stress, since it's the only place I go where there are crowds. The good news is that I can generally get in and out of there pretty quickly. What a weird thing to be anxious about, but these are weird times. I finally used our old treadmill yesterday, and it worked beautifully after years of inactivity. It was great to get a real sweat going for the first... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Did you get the same crazy thunderstorm we had here last night? It's been so long since we had one, I almost didn't recognize the sound at first, but it got loud and bright real fast. There also may have been hail at one point. All of that craziness kept BDH and Little Buddha up past their bedtime, but they still got a decent night's sleep, so things should fine today. Right now, they're loving listening to the chirping birds. They're also excited to tell you that the garden is showing signs of... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's it going? We're all just plugging away here at the moment. After talking to BDH and Little Buddha, I decided I need to start getting some exercise at home. I'm in noticeably worse shape since the gym closed, and it doesn't look like that's going to reopen anytime soon. The last thing I need is for the quarantine to give me an underlying health condition. The guys think this is a great idea, probably because they just get to watch and cheer me on...which actually sounds pretty good to me. I've already done my push-ups... Read more →
