A good start to the week

I have a neighbor down the hall who just annoys the shit out of me.  She lets her small child run up and down the hall screaming and she herself has caused some unnecessary drama in the past.  She's a teacher and I kept running into her on the way to my early morning swim.  She and her daughter would get to their car - across from mine - at the same time I got to mine. While the mother got the car out, the child would stand so that my only way to get out would be to run over her - which was way too tempting...

Finally I figured out timing to avoid them in the mornings... ahhhhh  Then my swimming lane was drama free. A couple of regulars and then a new guy who only swam about 10 lengths before he hit the sauna.  My favorite lifeguards were on duty.  It was just all good.

They are working on the roof of the pool and a sign this morning said that there would be random pool closings between now and December when they finish.  I need to come up with Plan B for those closings.  Hopefully there won't be too many.


Nothing going on here today. I still need to get gas but there is really no where I have to go in the car today so no car, no gas.  Or if I decide a trip out would be a nice diversion, I may go ahead and gas up. It does make me twitchy to be out of gas.  If not today, I can do it on the way to the pool tomorrow.


I have a couple of projects on my list - closet cleanouts and I really do need to take everything out of the bathroom drawers and trash/reorganize.  But, nothing that has to be done at all.  The laundry is caught up, the kitchen is clean the house is tidy.  I feel like that part of having so much time is just what I always thought/hoped it would be.

I still have this feeling that I'm not as productive as I'd like to be but I think that's a boob wish.  (Boob wish is a waste of time wish - if you want bigger or smaller boobs, book a date with a surgeon.  Wishing for boobs is silly, quit wishing and go get.  It's completely different than wishing for world peace or wishing that you could get good tomatoes in Seattle.) If I really was bothered by feeling non-productive, I'd do something about it so clearly, I'm just blowing smoke here.

So now time to get on with my non-productive retirement day.
