I.C.E (the day after)

I returned from trip *2 from the Government Center -- and I looked at the garage and spotted this ... kind of cool eh?  I forgot to check it out when I left this evening ... will keep camera in the truck ..
all part of the craziness on 3rd Street

(don't look a the wiring ... today's call is the electrician)

It made it thru the night ..... pictures on my phone!

ice is evil.

freeking evil.

I bailed for home just before 5:00 last night (with homework) ...

Hit the brakes to turn on our township road -- started sliding ... oops #1.

Slowly negotiated a roundhouse corner onto the mini hill at our mailbox ... fishtailed and slid into the opposite bank -- dang near didn't make it.

Got straightened out and took a run at the big hill -- in 4WD ...

Started skidding 3/4 of the way up and bounced off the outside bank ... but made it up ...

Slid past the driveway apron at the house -- had to back up (on glare ice) ... oops #2

after 2 attempts -- made it into the garage stall -- mirrors still attached.

and elder #1 says to me --- "it wasn't that bad 15 minutes ago when I came home"  ... really dude  ---  somehow I find that hard to believe.

The inbound this morning was totally uneventful.  Thankfully. 
On with the day/week/life.

Stay smart - stay safe.

purge ...

the need to purge and do with less has become quite pronounced here on 3rd Street ... the crew will be proud of me ... 4 boxes left my "cave" in the last 48 hours ... and it is beginning to look like 4 boxes left .. 

damn -- I got a mess in this building ... the 3 things a day rule needs to be enforced ... strictly enforced.  good grief -- the crap -- it piles up ... and we really haven't hit the "busy" season yet. 

left to do --

__  get the label maker out and label the unlabeled binders
__  vac the floor
__ re-org the rolling cart
__ order another rolling cart

and the regular W2 and 1099 printing, client stuff .. ya, the stuff that makes generates a living.

'tis good to be me.

dining on 3rd street is generally microwaved left overs ... leftovers from girls weekend .. the papa murphy's pizza freezes well

I fell for the myth of himalyan salt lamps -- too soon to tell
I need all the good vibes I can get this time of year

elder #1 and his tractor arrived to scrap the parking lot .. I didn't think it needed it but must have thought it to be necessary ... or more likely he was at cousin shorty's and whipped in on the way past .. always amazes me -- he picks prime time rush hour for such projects ... goofy ...

white out conditions

drive to up to client at assisted living (can't see a thing)
no one answers the page ...
drive back to office

drive to attorney to chat about said client
grocery store (oh joy --food)
back to office

15 minute prep on repossession gains
drive back to said attorney (different client)
advise said client to foreclose
drive back to office

remember change is happening.

change happens every day ... although sometimes it rocks us to the core
change is good
change is bad
change happens
