The biggest lie

I learned long ago that I need to write it down if I’m going to remember.  Or text it.  Otherwise, I end up stressing about remembering to not forget.  If I can’t write it down right away, I count tasks on my fingers.  I know that if I have four things to do, I’ll remember 3.  I write it down the moment I can.  I will forget.  No question.

White phone charger cables

I have a charging hub where most of my electronics get plugged in. I am tough on charging cables, so I get new ones frequently. If I get the name brand ones, they charge quickly at first and then, after a week or two, they stop all together. I thought it was strange, especially since they were the name brand. These cables generally are white.

After the fifth or sixth cord stopped working, I realized why. There were small teeth marks on the cable. And then I caught inky chewing away while I slept.  Only on the white cords.

I have all kinds of other colors and textures, but she only likes the expensive white ones.  Caviar tastes, I guess.

What color is your coffee?

My coffee is colored F. I love my coffee. I used to take it very sweet, but I worked my way down to no calorie coffee. I really am not a sweet coffee fan anymore. If I go to a fancier coffee place, I get a nonfat latte. No sugar in the coffee. I tend to buy flavored coffee, though, so I enjoy the smell even more. Hazelnut, butter toffee, buttery caramel, etc. My co-workers always wonder what the sweet smell is if they haven’t noticed that I have my cup of coffee. I do drink just plain black coffee if that’s all that’s available, though.

Prepping for vacation

I have an upcoming vacation. I am doing the last minute things, even though it’s not really last minute yet.

I went to purchase what I need for the trip. I haven’t quite finished, but I got the majority done.

I tried to get a mani pedi done, but I ended up getting called in to go to work, so only the pedi got done.

I got to work and finished up on record time. Then I went to buy sunglasses for the trip. I am almost ready! I am planning on getting the manicure soon.

I also found a lot of memes and book related photos to write about when I’m away. I am sure I’ll have time to write, so I’ll publish when I’m back. At least I don’t have to think about what I’m going to write about. I’ll figure out other topics, too, while I’m away. Always thinking…

License plate adventure

When I was in Vegas, my daughter texted me a photo of a ticket that was left in the car we don’t drive often. It never had a front license plate and there’s no place to put it, anyhow.

I also have a car that I’m going to donate as soon as I can get someone to take the radio out of it. It’s sentimental, not that it’s a decent radio or anything.

I messaged my friend, asking where I should take the car for the license plate, and if he knew anyone who would come to remove the radio. He said he’d do both on his next day off. Perfect!

I rushed around to get a new replacement plate. I squeezed a trip to AAA into my schedule. I got there, waited in line, and explained what I needed. I was handed paperwork and told to bring in the old plates. Oh boy! Now I needed tools to get the old plate off.

I figured it out and got the plate and the paperwork to AAA after getting all the info together. I turned over the old plate and got the new ones. I installed the new rear one. My friend cancelled. Great.

I texted another friend about the radio and the license plate. He said he could help with the radio, but had no experience with license plates. No problem. I called my mechanic to ask what to do, expecting him to recommend someone. “Heavy duty double stick tape.” I can do that.

So the next thing in the agenda is to wait for the rain to stop, then take the paperwork and car to the police station to get it signed off. Hopefully that’ll be tomorrow.

3 a.m. Cardio workout

I have had a cough for several days. My sleep has been disturbed by it. I found that I sleep better when I sleep propped up. The problem with being propped up is that I snore.

My bedroom is right off the kitchen. I was sound asleep and my daughter decided to find something to eat at 3 am. She stopped in my doorway to wake me up to get me to stop snoring.

I was so sound asleep, I was disoriented. My mostly asleep brain sat me upright and I screamed. My daughter jumped, but was awake enough to not scream back. She asked me why I was screaming. “There’s someone standing in my doorway at 3 am.” She nodded and told me it was her. She calmed me down and I managed to get back to sleep, eventually. Middle of the night cardio workout?
