LOL….Me taking care of plants?

Poinsettia

This is the first time in 13 years at Miller’s that I have appointed myself to take care of the Poinsettias. Me, the killer of plants. So far so good. All are living and no leaves are falling. I must admit that I have been talking to them, begging them not to let me down in front of my co-workers.

My twin mattress arrived. It took a couple of hours to inflate. It never stops amazing me how they can fit that mattress in such a little box. It’s been many years since I’ve had to sleep on a twin size bed. It will take some getting used to. So far so good….I haven’t fallen out of the bed yet.

So far I have only bought new fitted sheets. I doubled up my down comforter and secured it with safety pins. Then I centered it inside the full size duvet. Nice and warm and I like the way the edges cover the area under the bed.

My body pillow was the biggest issue. No way I can sleep with a pillow that’s almost as tall as I am in a twin size bed. So instead of buying a smaller pillow, I cut this one almost in half pinned it and then hot glued it together.

Next I had to get rid of the blue light on this docking station. I was getting on my last nerve at night. I couldn’t find my electrical tape so she had to wear a mask.

It’s been a busy week. I re-did my desk area again because I wanted to install a tray for my keyboard. I desk is not really a desk. It’s a tall bookcase turned on its side. Two of the former shelves were in my way and I didn’t want to remove them because that would weaken the desktop. I just changed everything around to make it fit.

This is how it looks now. I like how I now have way more desk space to work on.

I did a drive-by to my mom’s on Sunday. It was great to see her and she seemed in good spirits. Hopefully sometime next year we will be able to close enought to actually hug each other.

I’m going to vacuum and mop the kitchen. Then that’s it for today. I did the shopping at 6 AM so I have no need to leave the house again until Monday.

I’m really glad that I got to wash and detail my car last weekend. This week it snowed just enough to piss me off, but my car is still shiny.

Slowly getting back to normal…at home at least

About three weeks ago we had 6 people in our service and parts department test positive for covid-19. Both departments were closed down for a week. All of us were tested. All were negative, two were inconclusive. One of those two was my co-worker that relieves me. She turned out being positive.

I worked three weeks straight, until she tested negative on Thursday. It sucks that the labs are backed up and it takes days and days to get the results. This is my first weekend off and I sorely needed it!!!

Negative rapid Covid test.

I’m planning to do a drive-by to see my mom and pop sometime this morning. I have a few goodies to drop off on their porch.

It’s too bad we can’t have a real visit, but seeing each other 10 feet away is better than nothing. Just in case, I just tested myself again and I’m still negative.

While this all was going on and I only had time to work and sleep, my 10 year old computer finally kicked the bucket. Great timing, right? I’m so dependend on a computer. I don’t even write my grocery list by hand anymore.

Computer set-up

My new laptop came in on Tuesday. What a difference! It is super fast and will be perfect for when I get my van. It took a couple of days to figure out how to hook up my two monitors. They are both pretty old. Neither of them had HDMI ports and the laptop has one HDMI port. Solved it with adapters and a docking station. I’m back in business!! 🙂 Today T-Jay is getting rid of the lights in the keyboard. They are driving me nuts and have to go.

I’m starting to downsize more. Next week my twin bed should come in. It’s been many years since I’ve slep in one and will probably take some getting used to. I hope that the mattress is as comfortable as the reviews say it is.

We had beautiful weather yesterday. Perfect to wash my car. It badly needed it. Perfect to try out a new product from www.killerwaxx.com .

I love the new product. It is now my favorite. Easy on, easy off and the paint feels super smooth.

One morning last week, our electricity went out. That is pretty rare! I think the lights have gone off four times since I’ve lived here and then it only lasted a few minutes. Anyway, the light go off right when I’m trying to get ready for work. I have two LED light in the bath room. Both are motion sensored.

It never dawned on me that neither one of them had an “ON” switch. So here I am trying to put on eyeliner, flapping my left arm up and down to keep the light on while doing it. I’m sure it was a sight to see. HAHAHA….my bottom teeth are in the photo.

Well, that’s it for now. I hope that every one has a wonderful Sunday and stay safe!!!
