I noticed something new in an email signature I haven't seen before, in an email I received from an employee of a company my company does business with. After her name the person put in parenthesis (she/her). This "wokeness" has become ridiculous. Like I said to my dd, when asking her if she's seen anything like this yet, "I don't care if you are it/he/she/they, just do your job and process my PO" LOL.
My mom did mention her boyfriend yesterday, but she forgot his name, LOL. She just referred to him as her friend was coming over in a bit to watch some tv after dinner. I asked who (wondering if it was him) and she like oh the guy I met, I don't say his name often enough, I can't remember his name right now. I'm glad she has someone to pass some time with. Before that she was visiting off and on with her neighbor lady across the hall, but last time I was at my mom's she mentioned she had been gone a week or so, in the hospital.
I finally didn't have to log down any gun shots yesterday (Mr. Neighbor had asked me to keep track). I was gone for about 45 minutes during his peak time, but dh was outside working so he would have definitely heard, if there were. Still crickets from the shooter down river.
It pretty much felt like old days going into town yesterday. Lots of traffic (well, for a town of 800 LOL), the restaurant parking lot full, the hotel lot pretty full. No masks required (we also have had zero active cases for awhile now). DH had put a huge garbage bag of pop cans in the back of my car for me to drop off. There is a house in town that takes them, but as I pulled up, she had a big sign on her fence that said no longer accepting aluminum. Dang. We have been dropping them off there a couple times a year for the past 4 years. I did some looking and there is a small recycling center just on the other side of town that is open 2 days a week to take recyclables, so probably just start using that.
DH finally worked on something yesterday. There is a big rock in our driveway island that he wanted moved over a bit. Too big for him to move by hand. It took a bit of work to get it moved. He had his quad with the snow plow on front trying to push it. No luck. Then he had me get on the quad and he used a big crow bar and got it underneath while I pushed with the quad. Finally, it started moving. He's also figuring something out to help keep our new patio table planted when it's windy out. I'm not exactly sure what he's doing but sounds like he's going to make his own umbrella base out of concrete and then also anchor underneath the table to it somehow.
The first week of the month I'm always needing to get checks out to my mailbox, reimbursing side job employees for their expenses and auto allowance. I need to get another one out this morning, before the mail carrier comes.
