pets: Jayne in hat

Made it thru Monday!

Still tired, though. Ah, well - things'll settle down soon enough.

Ordered 4 shut-offs from Caprine Supply. I called Parts Dept; the guy knew exactly what I wanted, but they were out and he sent me on. I *hope* these are the right size...we should know soon. :sigh: The machine *does* cut down on the wrist strain, so I won't complain (too much) :lol:

Work is odd. We all know what's coming - boss is being super-nice (that's a red flag, right there!), and it's......odd. I feel itchy, if that makes sense. I'm ready for'll be nice to be able to relax for a bit.

School starts in 3 weeks..the kids are NOT ready. I need to go thru their closets and see what they stuff. Not sure how this is gonna work - Mom's truck is still dead and she hasn't made any arrangements that I know of; she's got my Jeep for the moment, but SG needs to not be tied to my schedule - his aunt has been neglected lately. With only 1 vehicle, it's tough...and when school starts, I don't know how it's gonna work. :sigh: I can't pay for 2.....the 1 payment is bad enough. Herself can NOT ride the bus - that's a recipe for disaster right there - and it's too far for them to walk/ride bikes (plus, they'd both have to cross busy streets...not gonna happen.) SG can't stay with his aunt if I need a ride to work, and I can't drive to work AND take the kids in, something's gotta give. Probably my nerves....

Have been looking for an inexpensive egg incubator....eBay has 'em, but prices are comparable to buying local. (NOT a bargain!) :sigh: Need to keep looking.....
