    Well done, you! I couldn't go down a size unless I lost a limb.

    Going through our finances today, since we will have to get a new roof in the next year or two. So we got our all papers together, looked at what we inherited from my mother-in-law, and what we are willing to cash-in.

    We will have our mortgage paid off entirely in about 8 or 9 months.A 30 year mortgage paid off in 15 years.

    Fuck. Yeah. [​IMG]

    I did not see a snake when I mowed the lawn today. (Unlike last time... :eek: )

    I was blessed by several families, as it's the end of my school year. One parent has ensured I can buy a new computer!

    @Peach Wookiee That's awesome news!

    I'm relaxing and having some mint chocolate chip ice cream. :)

    We hadn't had burgers in about 6 months so tonight we had dinner at Bernie's Burger Bus. No, it's not actually a bus. Well, there is a bus, but...it's a whole long story. You can Google it.

    Best burgers in Houston, if you are ever in the area. We each ordered The Principle burger, which was great. No fries, though. We're trying to do better with our eating habits.

    We came home, had fruit smoothies (mixed berries) and watched The Deadwood movie. A good day.

    When I was younger we had a disco nightclub in a repurposed barge, perpetually anchored. I've found out that that barge still exists!! Decades later!! Unbelievable! Talk about a walk down memory lane.

    FINALLY got to watch the final season of a show I've enjoyed. Been waiting for a few years now.

    My husband and I drove through the swamp tonight and we saw 2 snakes, 2 herons, numerous joyous frogs, and 1 nutria.

    I actually had to look that up. Never heard of those before.

    (Sounds like it should be an artificial sweetener. Obviously it is not. :) )

    I hope you get to get one of the 32 core machines .. they are so fast ... I want one. but my 8 core works fine for now .. but but .. I want that 32 core.. any way

    waking up was difficult to do today I did nothing all day except say little bits of art pastel on the current pad I am filling up with art .. I have not left my apartment all day errrr into the nite no outside influences mostly just having food to stay in my apartment and not worry about my next meal is great for today. I was influenced by fb friends watching the tony awards.. so that was good too.

    I went to a reunion with former classmates who got their doctorate the same year I did. Turns out I am the only one who chose a quiet life in the countryside. I had kept in touch with only one of them. With the others, we had a lot of catching up to do.
