Not quite as hot...

I ran out of thread I needed and so had to go outside at 1 pm in the sun and it wasn't as bad as I expected. It's still pretty smokey out but not nearly as hot as I guessed, and not hot at all in the sun. Wow.

My vest is working out better than I expected it to. Except for the running out of thread part. My back was tired of being hunched over the machine and my podcast ended at a good stopping point so I'll finish up tomorrow.

Looks like the real estate bubble for this condo building is over. For the past 6 months, condos here in this 108 unit building have gone on sale and been snapped up in less than a week, some in as little as 2 or 3 days, for 10s of thousands over asking price - regardless of condition.

But, 12 days ago a woman down on the second floor put her unit up for sale - and it's still active now 12 days later. This is kind of karmic. This same woman has owned this unit for years. She has rented it out totally furnished down to the silverware as an executive rental but in the past few years has had trouble finding a renter.

About every 6 months or so she shows up at the home owners meeting with one gripe or another - never a legit one. During her tirades she never fails to mention that her unit is of the highest quality with 400 count Egyptian cotton sheets. Like any of us give a rats ass. The last two times she did this, when she got to the fucking sheets part of her tirade there were several who had trouble suppressing a giggle. She has put the place up for sale several times over the years always asking way too high (in my opinion) price and it's never sold. I'm not sure why she didn't put it on the market a few months ago. But, apparently, she's missed the window of opportunity... again...

Tonight there is the regular Home Owners Association meeting. At least there's no baseball conflict.

I'm starting a lung experiment today. I am down to one inhaler (from 3 + a rescue which I still have but never need). I'm going to try using that inhaler only every other day. My lung doctor told me that there is nothing that can be done for my COPD but manage symptoms. So... I'm going to do just that. If I can get by on 1/2 of an inhaler, I can save $800 a year PLUS when my lungs get worse the first step in the fix will be just to go back to every day. It's worth a shot. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work but if it does.... yahooo!
