I went to the DMV to get a learners permit this morning. That was the first annoyance: that although my UK license is perfectly OK for driving in the US (as long as I’m not a resident), it is not suff

My new cowboy boots hurt my feet. I know I have to go through a breaking-in phase, but in the meantime my left pinky toe is cursing at me non-stop.

That's one thing that works in Germany -- waiter tells you the charge, you say how much you want to pay (including tip, ha) and then no back and forth of small change is needed. Does require customers to be able to do math on the fly. A lot of people I know would have trouble with this.

Beyond annoyance into pissing me off: our contractor knew last week that the appliance installers were coming today.  While our being away and then the countertop installation meant that the kitchen crew didn't come in until yesterday to restart the work, they did absolutely no prep for the appliance guys, instead spending all their time on the backsplash.  The appliance guys were sure surprised to find that there were no water hookups for the fridge or dishwasher and a wrong-sized gas shutoff valve for the range. As were N and I.

So now, I'm working with my guy at the appliance store to get the installation rescheduled.  Meanwhile, I can hear one of the crew busily polishing the backsplash grout.  😖

i take this back.    It rained all night.   Husband was in the country.    While I fxxxed around on MFF this morning, the deck was flooding into the dining room, silently and invisibly as it was quieted by the antique rug.    By the time I found it, it had already blanched the hardwood floor.   @#$$%^&.    Husband had called this am to say that because of rain up there, he was coming home today, so I didn't call him as I knew he was on his way home.    I somehow moved the 10 ton table 6 feet to one side, brought in a short kitchen step ladder, pulled up the rug as far as I could and draped it over, hoping to help it dry.   Got out my trusty kitchen sheers and cut the rug pad back as far as I could and dumped that half on the front steps.   In the meantime, of course, I put a giant bowl under the drip which was coming from a full tit reminiscent of an early Madonna costume.  

Husband got home about an hour after my discovery and has been BUSY, using a pump to clear the deck, trying to find the clog in the drain with a snake.  Work continues and will for days as we address the rug, new padding, floor, ceiling.

Learned: never say bored, always marry an engineer.      Did I say that the rain has started up again?

Kicked off Christmas Eve with a nasty reaction to shingles vaccine #2, complete with a dizzy spell and fall.  After a couple of hours in the ER and a dose of electrolytes, I'm feeling better.  And at least I don't have COVID, the flu, or actual shingles.
