Still paying for my mistake

P1200010-smThis mistake was avoidable.
The tips to solve it didn’t completely work.
Kicking myself but at least I learned from it.

We have a septic system instead of city water and sewer.  We use a compost bin and we don’t have a garbage disposal. Nothing goes down the toilet except what is supposed to and toilet paper. Food scraps, grease etc is not put down our sink drains.

I don’t enjoy cooking. I tried to use the leftover Mexican flavored meat added to new meat for spaghetti. I put it in the little red strainer to wash off as much of the taco mix seasoning. I did have a bowl under the strainer and threw that water/seasoning/grease mix outside. I did wipe out the red stainer but WAY more grease obviously stayed in those holes than I would’ve thought!

New glasses are better than the old ones but they could be (much) better and Tyler has an appointment of his own.

I paid for premium progressives with maximum viewing area, Digimax® Ultra HD with NeverGlare Advantage poly transition, that came with Crizal no-glare —  in a cheap $29 frame and my glasses still cost $600 not counting the $94. eye exam sans picture of the back of my eyeballs.

a year has passed

We’ve had loss before, actually several years close together we lost family. I still cry about losing Trinity. I know what you’re probably thinking. She was “just” a cat and it’s been a whole year since her death.

Local Libraries have a lot to offer

I have great memories of walking with my cousin after school to the YMCA or to the library. We both remember having to use the old card files and the Dewey Decimal System to locate a book, carrying a pile to the table for research pre-Google, and putting the actually books back where we got them. I really thought I posted this before but I can’t find it. I don’t typically post twice in one day, but after talking with a very helpful, always smiling librarian when I went to pick up my new book this morning, I thought I post it (again). If you’re local you know just the man I am referring to.

2 week roller coaster following Valentines day

This is love. 7of52 sm

I’m not saying I’m only emotional around February and March, but for a few weeks, I sure have the time to celebrate and the time to mourn all bunched close together. It takes some extra effort to try to remember only the happy times. This year my mom gave me all my dad’s old medical records. I should not have looked at those right now.

Cancer sucks!
