It feels like a week of Mondays--


I forgot to plug in the block heater last night---so I went outside at 3:30 am to do the deed===only to discover I left the interior light on all night.

Yesterday we had a little two day kitchen job---first bank of cabinets went well---second one--all of the side panels are missing----Arrrrg----paycheck delayed----

I could go on---it's been like that for a week---some little screw up keeping a job from getting done----

Oh,well---let's hope the truck starts cause my charger is fried---Mike---

It's hard to take a real vacation when you work for yourself.
Your for sure not going to get a paid vacation.
All the time your gone your feeling guilty about being home getting things done.
You start making list of things to do when you get home or looking around where ever your staying looking for things to fix.

You hit that nail right on the head, All my years of being in business, I never took a vacation, now that I am retired it feels strange to take a vacation.

I hope things start looking up for you Mike, I hate weeks like that.

That's a problem with doing remodeling.
Too much work = money - no time to spend it.
Not enough work = vacation time - no money to spend!
I think, I prefer the "too much work" situation!
(Easy for me to say!)
Hope you got your truck started Mike -
without too many problems!

Happy Holidays!

All is good---I just have 3 jobs going--all are inches away from the final payout and little glitches keep slowing things up----Just a little frustrated and needed to whine---

When it rains, it pours.

Hope the rest of your week goes better.

Good grief, is that a country in Yugoslavia. Now the MD 20-20 I have heard of, how about some ripple.

Ha, ha, ha!
Yugoslavia?!?
"Ripple"? - what a fine, delectable, beverage!
(If you need the "job" done - it might do it!)
Ouch!
(I speak from experience!)
I could have thrown in "Boone's Farm" -
(I liked Strawberry - myself!)

Look at this -
we've gone to complaining about Mondays -
to talking about wine!
("Monday, Monday... can't trust that day...")
