Busy, Busy, busy.........................

It has been a crazy week again as Scott has been replacing all the trim work in our living room so between that, having to paint & helping out Mark & Dani with a project at their house I haven't had a lot of free time.
I made what I thought would be a quick stop at Home Depot a "big box" store today to get some some more painter's caulk & also needed some caulk backer to fill in the gap around the picture window in the living room before I painted it.
Simple right?
Wrong!!!
Couldn't find the backer so I asked a certain sales person who didn't look old enough to be working there! Of course we had the "language" barrier going on again because of the way I "pronounced" the word caulk!! He kept muttering something about it being backer board, to I repeatedly said NO! He decide to consult with his co-worker who probably got his job after graduating from kindergarten - why do I always end up with the "rookies"! I, once again, explained what I needed it for & he came to the brilliant conclusion I needed Sheetrock because that's what you put around windows!!!
I just shook my head & very graciously left the store & went to my local hardware store like I should have in the first place!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
