What am I thinking? The kitchen work is dominating my mind, I want to be in the middle of it, running the show, I am paying someone to do that, I want to stay out of the way. Maybe I should see if Dr Spo is in network.
Where have I been? Lowes to discover that my beloved light maple floors have been discontinued. Fortunately I had the one piece of trim needed to bridge the living room floor to the new kitchen floor. Not the perfect transition, but it will work.
Where am I going? The day after Labor Day, Metro is shutting down all rail service south of National Airport for 6 weeks to reroute tracks through a new station that has been under construction since early 2020. My commute will be unpleasant for 6 weeks. Shuttle buses stuck in traffic, maybe driving in once a week.
What is new in my world? I had to buy a new beard trimmer, the adjustable plastic guide on the one I was using broke - again.
Who deserves an atta-boy! The Demo crew from last week that made such quick work of the kitchen.
Who deserves two atta-boys? The appliance guy, the ovens are set to be delivered on Thursday.
Who deserves a slap? Book banners and book burners. On a scale of 1 to 5, all 5.
Who have I been thinking about? My brother in law. His health continues to decline. Death is getting nearer, hard on my dear sister.
What should I be doing? Well there is always work to be done. I need to work out the details for Spain. I should be walking more.
What is my excuse? It is hot, work is crazy, I am old, I have lots of them, and as someone once told, me we all have one and most of them stink.
What have I done to make the world a better place this month? Never enough. I try to be kind to others. To be generous. To be considerate.
