Friday Fragments


I literally spent two and a half hours organizing my stuff on Tuesday, moving books to their proper bookshelves, going through art supplies, making a new home for our board games in the dining room, even getting rid of a not-insignificant amount of books. The result? A slightly less cluttered looking shelf, a smaller stack of books that still need a new home (I had about 30 books in that stack before I started; now there are about 10, but I also added a lot of books to the pile before it started getting smaller), and that’s about it.

Ok, I am exaggerating a bit–the game shelves look good and my books are better organized–but I find this kind of organizing so frustrating. You have to do so much work in order to get to the part where it looks good. And, despite the better organized shelves, I do still have that pile of books that have been displaced by this project that do not yet have a new home. But I need to look on the bright side, right? I am making progress getting things moved to where they need to be. I will get there eventually.


The street in front of my house is leaking. For the past few days, a seam in the middle of the street about 4 feet long has been oozing water. Today a bunch of people with trucks came and dug a hole in the sidewalk across the street. Apparently they will come back on Monday to dig a hole in front of my next door neighbor’s house, and then they will tunnel under the street to replace the supply line from the main line that is across the street. These are the perils of living in an older community. But we have really cool tall trees, too, so it evens out, right?


I got a flu shot today, and now my arm hurts. I feel a bit whiny saying it, but it really does burn. My daughter got one at the doctor’s office, but I didn’t want to mess with getting the shot there iwthout an appointment for myself, so I said I would arrange it for later and we left. I ended up getting the shot at the pharmacy anyway, because they looked it up and said my insurance would cover it with no cost to me. As the clerk was giving me the shot, my daughter told him that she had made me hold her hand while she got her shot. I said, “That’s because I’m not a baby,” and he said “Yeah, she’s tough.” I like him, :).


Bones has moved to Friday nights….I am so glad my mother reminded me! I love this show! I am a bit disappointed about the change, because we were watching it together on Monday nights when my mom came over for dinner, and there are so few shows that all of like to watch together. I am really looking forward to the new show Almost Human, though. There. If you didn’t already know that I am a huge nerd, it is now confirmed.

  1. I am in desperate need of organizing. I’m trying to figure out if I need a larger house or less stuff.
    My arm hurt for two weeks after I got my flu shot. The same thing happened last year. My doctor gave some lame excuse like the shot fights four strands of flu…
    I have a small river running down my street and no one seems to be able to figure out who is responsible. I do not have a good feeling about how that will all play out.
    Perhaps another reason to consider moving:)
    Have a great weekend.
