I guess this post is falling under the 'mumblings' of a random nature - poor you!
Random Thing # 1 - Booked the carpet cleaners to come and 'do something' with our well-worn but not replaceable carpets (apartment life, what can I say). There was a small accident in the hallway outside the bathroom door that may or may not have involved much of a container of liquid laundry soap getting up close and personal with the floor. It may or may *not* have involved moi.
Random Thing # 2 - Regarding the above - have to figure out how to move everything that's moveable and stash it somewhere else so they have the most access possible.
Random Thing #3 - Thought fleetingly of attending the local pop-up clinic for vaccines tonight to get our 2nd dose sooner than it's scheduled. Good thing we didn't because it wasn't scheduled to start until 4 and by 3:30 they were completely full. DH attempted to get his moved closer via the phone and he would only have saved himself 2 weeks and he would have had to drive over an hour to get to the closest available. Nope, not gonna happen. As for me, I'm not even going to try after all the debacle I went through to get the first two scheduled. Sept. 1 will come soon enough.
Random Thing # 4 - I'm continuing with the little stitcheries and have 32 completed (out of 48). Here's the latest....
Random Thing # 5 - It pays to be loyal. For several years now I've requested a loyalty discount from our internet/tv/phone provider and they always come through with something in order to keep our business. This time I saved $50/month for the next 3 years and a free rental of the receiver/box for the next 15 years. Not bad....proving that you just have to ask and you might be surprised what they'll offer you.
Random Thing #6 - It's a small-ish town and we really don't expect to have to deal with big city rules but it seems we're being dragged into it no matter what. Seems imminent that we will no longer have free parking for our guests at our building which is most likely just going to lead to people parking in the park to avoid paying. The almighty need for the most bucks at work.
