Well, the chores are muddling along. Got the garage door opener back together. Lost one screw, replaced it. Had the car halfway in when I remembered that I forgot to plug it in. SIGH. Had to drag the ladder back over and plug the thing in. But it’s working. Poor husband is STILL jackhammering. Ran into just a huge piece of bedrock. UGH. I got two loads of laundry done though so that is out on the line. Washer is working fine with the new clamp. Fertlized the garden again. It really looked bad yesterday so I did the low fertilizer twice. I see no point in giving it the full doses and then rinsing it away when I water the next day so I did two small doses and most of the plants look better. The cucs probably won’t make it. They are just yellowing for no good reason. I’m hot, sweaty, I stink and I ruined my t-shirt.

So, pretty much a typical day of doing the chores I don’t like. I would like to speak with the guy who designed the garage door opener such that you have to take a screw in and out without being able to see the screw or the head of the screwdriver. Y’all need to plan better and you annoyed me greatly this morning. Just so you know.

In other news, a way to help with the hurricane situation: conserve gasoline. Refineries are still out and pipelines closing. Less driving is always good for the environment too.

  1. One of the KB’ers hasn’t been able to get gas in San Antonio. I think she said she went to five different stations. I never do much driving. I always combine my trips as much as possible and since most everything is about 10 minutes away, there’s not much I can cut back on.

    Fingers crossed they’ll be able to get deliveries in to the affected (and not affected) areas soon.

  2. I was in walmart yesterday. While looking for molasses, I noticed the chips and snack aisle was bare. COMPLETELY EMPTY. They obviously haven’t been able to restock. There were a few lone peanuts/nuts on the one end. The cereal aisle was pretty picked over with lots of empty spaces too (that’s where I finally found the molasses.) You can tell what people eat these days! Last bad hurricane it took about 3 weeks for the shelves to start having normal levels of food.

  3. The lines to get gas are very long here in austin too. Gas stations are running out because we get directly supplied from Houston and apparently that is not happening efficiently right now.
