My lifetime supply has come to an end

When I moved to Seattle in early 1992, I left most of my furniture behind and furnished my new condo with a line of furniture called Techline. It was modular, put-it-together, stuff that came to me in about 40 boxes. Each box had a bottle of Elmer's Glue in it. Each box. 40 bottles of Elmer's glue. Putting the furniture together used a bit of one bottle.

It was hilarious. I had them lined up on a shelf. My Mom suggested that I require everyone who crossed the threshold to take a bottle. Everyone called it my lifetime supply.

Last week, I needed to strengthen my car mat so I decided to glue it to another one. And I used the last of the last bottle of Elmer's Glue. Today I bought new. So starts another chapter of my life.

Good swim today. It was crowded as I suspected it would be but I had my lane and it was fine. I stopped in the store and got mushrooms to go on my pizza tonight and then killed time at the coffee shop finishing up my book waiting for time to get my nails done. After my nail appointment, I picked up a pizza and came on home.

The house cleaner was still here and she brought me some bean and pasta soup. Normally, I would turn up my nose at something so healthy but she made me try it while she was still here and OMG this stuff is delicious! She said it would be better if I waited tomorrow to eat it but I think that's not going to happen. It's going to be lunch today for sure.

I had a terrible time yesterday with my windows computer. It kept dropping the internet connection. My chromebook had a solid connection so I knew it wasn't the network but I couldn't figure out what the fuck was going on. I tried all kinds of tricks and finally just got tired of screwing with it and left it alone. It has now not had a failure for the last 18 hours. I'm declaring victory.

I think I'm going to put dolls on hold today and make myself a new bag. The one I've been using is getting tired. Time for new. But, hey, it's lunch time first. Hey, soup! I'm looking at you!
