Survivor

  • I beaned my son in the face with a plastic baseball first thing this morning.
  • Despite that, he says he's having fun today.
  • He's under the impression that the school is closed.
  • I finally got to talk to Scarlett's vet this morning.
  • On one hand, I'm not paying for surgery.
  • On the other, there is no end in sight for this injury.
  • It is a severe sprain/strain, with a torn something or other ligament
  • She is to be on cage rest, leash walked, house confined, and crate confined for the next 30 days - and then we'll check in again.
  • He said it could be another 30 to 60 days before it heals, but he does expect to see improvement in 30 days.
  • Clinton tried to fix the garage refrigerator - whose door wasn't closing completely, by adding a hasp.
  • In drilling the first hole, he let all the freon out.
  • Thankfully, we were able to get a used one for $100.
  • The dump wants us to pay $45 to get a technician to verify its emptiness and then $42 to dump the old one.
  • Thank goodness, we can just deliver it to my parents house, whos garbage people ll just pick it up.
  • He then attempted to clean the pool, by backwashing it.
  • And we ended up with a crack in the filter.
  • $1500 later, our pool will probably work again tomorrow.
  • He's no longer allowed to "fix" anything until I get a job.
  • There is not a snow cone place within 10 miles of our house.
  • And that one is closed.
  • In 100° weather.
  • I did put my claim in for unemployment.
  • So I expect to get my first check in 5 to 6 weeks.
  • I'd say this unemployment thing is going just great.
