I might not have to work! YAYAYAYAY Like the money, of course, but I am ready, after a month, to have my weekend all to myself. The first year I was here I worked for four months with one day off the whole time. Loved the money then, but if I remember correctly, I was sick for about three days afterwards. Exhausted more like it.
I have two new roommates. A young man and his son. They were living in an apartment but his roommates there, a young couple, kept getting in to arguments and would throw stuff at each other and kick each other out of the apartment. Scared the little boy, who is about 7 years old. So, my house is paid off, don’t really need rent money. He will split the town bill with me, which includes water, electricity and such. Annnnddddd….paint the outside of my house. Which needs it badly. My town bill is about 80 bucks a month, so split between us only about 40.00 per month. It will also allow the young man to save up for a place where just he and his son can live. The young man works where I work, great worker!! My boss’ love his work. (He is the maintenance man) The little boy loves being at my house, they have only been there three days. There is a park across the street, he plays with my dog, and they brought their cat.
The only SPOT, or SHADOW, hanging over this beautiful party of people working together to help each other, is, you guessed it, SHADOW. He is not use to them being in the house and I hope he recovers his senses soon. He even sits at their bedrooms doors and growls when they are gone during the day. Like he is warning them, “Step ONE FOOT outside that door and your ankles are MINE”. He barks when they come in the evening. Normally I can sleep through anything, or so I thought. Who knew that such little dogs could have such loud and shrill barks. I’m getting rather irritated with him. Nothing like waking about 6pm to him barking and he can’t get over himself, it goes on forever until I drag him in my room and shut the door. Out of sight, out of mind. Well, unless they make noise. The poor guy keeps apologizing. Not his fault, hopefully it will just take a bit of time for Shadow to get use to them being there since we have always been alone in the house. Personally, I think it is good for him to be use to some other people besides just myself.
My sister is back from San Diego, did not make it back to the beach to bring me any sand. ;( That is ok, on September 28th I am headed down there myself. My aunt and uncle will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and want both my brother, who already lives down there, and myself to be present. I guess we are the only two left alive, aside from the bride and groom, of course, in the family who were present at their wedding in Yuma, Arizona. (Also where my mother and father got married a few years earlier). I don’t remember the event at all, I was almost 4 years old. I was surprised to learn I was there, don’t remember my mother mentioning that at all. Guess I was tho. So, I already told my boss I AM GOING! I will get to see my grandma. She is 94. On oxygen because she has very bad asthma, but other than that, she is not on one single medication. Doing better than me. HER mom lived to 95.
It is still cool here, 51 degrees outside tonight, wind is blowing and it is COLD out! Last night the wind was blowing so hard it kinda scared me. Every once in a while it does that up here, gets scary I mean. The wind blows up here all the time.
Well, will write more. I see I have comments to answer. I have to get breakfast ready for the guests. Hope you have all been having great weekends and life is good.
