It's gonna be a scorcher.
And I can't run until this afternoon when it's going to be the hottest part of the day.
I would run this morning if not for the &^%$# stupid 7am meeting I have and which I am in right now!!!
(It's a conference call, okay??)
Then, 30 minutes to get ready for work.
Then, a meeting at 8:30 with India.
AND!!! I did NOT sleep well last night!!!!
I woke up this morning with the distinct feeling that I only had a few hours of good sleep and the rest of it was spent in restlessness.
But then, I woke up early. And actually got OUT of bed early.
Which could mean that I was in light sleep to begin with or...
I slept deeper for those few hours than I think I did.
Of course the only way to really tell is to wait until later this afternoon and see if I am dragging my body around in a cranky nasty mood!
They put in the last step last night. And all the spindles. And some detail work. The rosettes for the window trim is in. The back window has been all filled in and roughed out. They already extended the island (yeah) to accommodate for the missing 6" due to the stove, and things are looking good! Although if it wasn't pointed out, one many not notice anything. I am still
skeptical about the Friday ETA of the cabinets going in.
So in this state, the date of your car registration expiration is determined by your license plate. If it ends in 1, it expires in January. If it ends in 2, it expires in February, etc. Unless you have a vanity plate.
All vanity plates are renewed in November. Now, I have a vanity plate that ends in 2. If you didn't know better you would think that my registration expires in February. But then if you know the legal format of a non-vanity plate, you would know
that my plate is a Vanity Plate! So, for the past two days, I've gotten a ticket for expired registration! Yesterday, I wrote the DMV a note telling them the situation along with a copy of my registration. I got home and sure enough, there is another ticket!
I have decided enough is enough
. I am writing a note to the STW (Stupid Ticket Writer) telling her/him what she/he should already know since it is their job!!! Whatever happened to job training????
Joseph said that if they weren't stupid, they wouldn't have this job; they'd be doing something more enlightening than writing out tickets! He has a point, but still... How can you be out there doing this job if you don't know the difference between a regular plate and a vanity plate?
I mean, this has never happened before. And I've had this plate for the past four years!!!
What a BONEHEAD!
It is almost 5pm and 86*. ARG!!!!!!!
Spend two hours in a meeting with my boss.
He talked for the whole two hours.
Actually, it was only one hour but it felt like two hours.
After Work Update:
So, here I sit, like a VEAL
tethered to the COUCH
waiting for the real estate guy to show up. He as supposed to be here at 6pm and here it is 6:15 pm which makes him 15 minues late! GAH!!! And I still have to run! *SOB!*
Anyway, we rented our upstairs apartment for August 15th. The current tenants who we LOVE are moving out because they are buying their own place! We met this woman at The Butcher Shop, aka Charcuterie, a few weeks back and she is renting it! YEAH! Heard from Tom, the Real Estate Guy, that she loves
us. His words, NOT mine. Anyway... we need to trade paperwork - and I need to give him a check for doing some work under the table for us.
Late Breaking House Note.
They are definitely working on the cabinets downstairs. But there is no way
that his is going to finish putting them all in by tomorrow! GAK! I have to tell him that I want him to finish off the wall behind the thin narrow area - hard to explain. That will definitely take him longer. :oP
Even Later Note.
So Tom the Realty Guy came and went. GAH! He stayed here for like 45 mintes. FORTY-FIVE WHOLE MINUTES! ARG!!! It is after 7pm. So do you THINK that I am going to be able to run my 6 miles???? NOOOOOO!!!!!! ARG!!!!!
But, we have all the paperwork and a check and all that good stuff. AND we have a signed lease and she is a very good and responsible bill-paying person. Yeah! And he liked her a lot and he said that she kept saying how much she liked us! And even though he was wary that she complained about her landlord, when he found out who the landlord was, he agreed that she had a bad situation. The landlord is basically your high end slumlord. Make the exterior look nice and charge a lot of rent, but then the infrastructure is dicey - like same electrical lines, etc., and then don't ever answer phone calls or complaints! So, she is going to be moving in the middle of August. Yeah! :o) Happiness!!!!
Anyway, I had a nice chat with Tom the Realty Guy. We chatted about pets and his partner and his family and all sorts of neat stuff. :o)
Sundry Ramblings Addendum.
I checked the car windshield when I got home tonight. No ticket. I checked the back license plate where I had taped the note this morning. No note. I guess they got the message. I also mailed the second ticket I had with yet another copy of the registration. I hope I never have this problem again. Sheesh.
Okay. Joe is playing golf and I am hungry. I guess I won't wait.
