It's always something to deal with. I decided to use my free hour (between when I get up and start work) to get logged into my side job and finish up recording their October stuff. Only I can't get logged into the VPN. This has been the most inconsistent thing ever. It's so annoying. It could just be that their server at the office is down this morning, so rather than email my side job boss, I'll wait a couple hours and try again. If it's still not working, I'll let her know I can't get logged in (again...). She's usually not working until like 9 her time, anyway.
And for some reason, now, every time I try to open my "windows start" icon or type in the search bar, I get this weird screen where I can't do anything. The only way I can get it to go away is to click over on my other monitor. So, I apparently now have no way to bring up my Windows start menu. One more thing to figure out.
I'm taking off early from work this afternoon, as we are going into the city for a few errands, 3 that can only be done during weekday/working hours. I need to submit my passport application at the main post office. We need to pick up our furnace filters and some other part dh wants from them, and go to the bank. The rest of dh's order is ready to pick up at the store, as well as we are going to pick up another grocery order, since we are in town.
In other news I got an email from my mom's memory care that they now have zero Covid cases, so they are going to proceed with the flu and covid boosters they were supposed to do last week.
I think I have everything ready for the passport. I filled out the application form online and printed it. I have my original birth certificate and a copy of my DL and a check made out. For dh's passport renewal, I have it ready to mail, after we get a priority envelope at the post office, to send it in. I also have 2 other things to mail while I'm there. Saves me a cold cold walk to our mailbox early in the morning, LOL.
I told dd I'm just going to wait and give her birthday gifts when they are here at Thanksgiving and also make a cake or something (as well as pumpkin pie) and any requests? She is requesting red velvet cake, so red velvet it is. I just need to decide if I want to find a from scratch recipe or just do a box mix. I'm sure the box mix is just as good. That's all I ever make for other cakes and they always taste good.
