Now the specifics:
New Year’s Eve was a fiasco as are most holidays here at our house. Julie was trying to find a place for the family to go and kept coming up with many hundred dollars for the night with two adults and three kids. So it wasn’t till sometime Wednesday afternoon that we got invited over. Being the look ahead guy I am, I went to take a nap so I wouldn’t be cranky all evening. When I got up, plans had changed. Seems Shelby fell and landed on a toy that apparently had something sharp and managed to cut her ear lobe. Julie said it looked like it was cut through. So plans were cancelled and took Shelby to the emergency room. Kathy and I did our usual thing and I was asleep long before midnight.
We did have the traditional meal on Thursday at lunch. Although Kathy was considerate and didn’t put the pork in the sauerkraut. I like Knockwurst with my sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. But you can not find that easily around here so I settle for hot dogs.
Got totally frustrated with working on Gary’s project this week and was going to just give it to him as it was. Later in the week I thought of some solutions to the problems and I’ve continued working on it.
However I did take a break and clean things up in my room. At least now I have some room to work and got caught up on things.
Julie had some things that needed attention at her place and Mike was too busy with the wood work in the walk in closet so Kathy and I went over this week and spent a couple hours helping her get some things done.
That’s about it for this week. Hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve. And the best to everyone in the coming year. Let’s all make 2020 better than any year before. Bye for now.
