We still have the Honda for sale. A neighbor looked at it last Sunday and was going to buy it but we haven't heard anything about him getting a loan so....

Hi Ladies, does anyone need to order ATG tape, we can get it for $2.50 plus freight a roll, great price and great adhesive, I think its 1/4 inch wide and aggressive. The downside is we have to order in bulk to get this great price.

Let me know

Pat

It was quiet then....The mouse on my work computer stopped working (I'm using my iPad). Changed the battery but that didn't help. Turned the computer off and on several times. Employee is off taking his wife to pre-op testing because she needs surgery on her wrist in a few weeks. New credit card machine arrived but DH is having a problem getting it to work due to Time Warner Cable compatibility issues. BIG downpour outside several times. Customer's son (mental disabilities) was wondering around trying to play with our copiers and computers. DH's computer turned off by itself...there may be a power issue with that side of the room. "Needy" customer going over changes to a menu...they always have "issues" so a great deal of patience is needed. And I really don't have anything to work on. I'd like to go to the bank but I can't leave DH while he's in the midst of working with the menu customer.

Another day in paradise!

My day got MUCH better! DH fixed the computer mouse issue. My suitemate Debbie (from NH) popped in with her friend Debby! YEAH! They are up at their camps on Lake Pleasant this week and came down to see some friends in Little Falls so decided to swing by to see our new place.

Why is it that registrations and payments are in for the event in October ... but not for this event in September? I'm feeling pretty left out ladies ...

Spent the morning taking care of parent's financial and medical stuff.
I had today off to take the hubby for his colonoscopy.. then went to visit dad at the hospital. Relieved my bro so he could go home.
Dad may go home tomorrow. Not sure if with oxygen or not yet. Now I have find a place for them to live. I think we've convinced them to stay in NY in an assisted living facility. Have to sell the house... LOTS to do.

I just saw this one, thanks to your email! Unfortunately, I've been to my last CNY gathering. Zach got a new job and we are moving back to Ohio. Very mixed feelings about it!! He already started, but the kids and I are still here for now. Trying to sell the house (if anyone is interested in moving to Utica, we have the house for you!) and get things tied up here before we join him. Was hoping to stop by Tilly's mini-gathering to say bye to everyone, but she's not having one this month!
