Groundhog Day – What a joke! There was a storm in Pennsylvania that day so there is no way the critter saw his shadow except for the TV cameras. Let the poor guy sleep and stop the crap about six more weeks of winter. We don’t want to hear it.
SkillsUSA – For the past decade I have volunteered as a judge for student presentations at the regional level. The presentations are on vocational skills the students have learned. It is always rewarding and I learn something. This year I learned how to apply makeup, cut up a chicken and change out a hard drive among other things. This was a fun day.
How aging changes things – We had dinner with some childhood chums of the beloved husband. I noticed that there was more talk about what they did then than what they are doing now. There is always a litany of who died since the last get together. Fortunately everyone at the dinner is in the alive column!
Whassup designers? – I had several dress-up functions this week. The weather was frigid and I looked at my favorite sweaters. The dressier ones had ¾ length sleeves. What’s up with that? I layered but my bony arms were chilly. I would have loved a full length dressy warm sweater. I will keep an eye out for that.
Repairmen – We had two repairmen come this week, both on the same day. You are given a window of anywhere from two to four hours as the arrival time frame. It doesn’t matter which company it is, the repairman always comes at the very end of the time frame. We are never scheduled for the first slot!
So how was your week?
