Meh.  All of my neighbors decided to have their yards done today. I've been listening to leaf blowers all morning.

My plan for dealing with paper clutter that I put into place at the end of last year has worked.  I did my yearly clean out the file cabinet; it took all of 5 minutes to do.  It's stupid keeping a paper shredder in the kitchen, but I no long have to spend hour plus shredding stuff. If junk mail comes in, it gets shredded before it has time to land on the kitchen table or my desk. At the end of each month, I shred all other things such as paid bills and whatever.

Now if I would do the same thing with all the crap that accumulates with my computer, that would be great instead of leaving the mess which means hours of sorting, deleting, trying to figure out what stuff is, blah, blah, blah.

I've been putting off mowing the lawn. Today provided the perfect excuse, too. It snowed. It'll be raining the rest of the week.
The weather god is good to me.

Well my family of me, my parents, and our cat are going to have a decent Thanksgiving. They got the food.

As for me: in my dreams...

Great day! Slept well and have the Turkey in the oven! Fed the dogs who were very thankful!
Then wife wakes up starts complaining about things, even about Thanksgiving. oddly, this tirade made me even more thankful! I have a family (tho' I can't see most of them because of covid), I have a roof over my head, dogs that love me, a cat that abides, pension money that's enough, good Pastors, a good parish, and a wife and child who keep me humble and remind me that happiness comes from within and not something I or anyone else can give them.
And it's a nice day to work outside.
Maybe I'll sit on the porch and give pray a bit to thanks to God and yell at the children to get off my lawn.

I've done almost nothing, all day. I took shower; that has been the highlight of the day thus so far.  The dudes in the house will be having ham with mashed potatoes and veggies later, I'll be having pizza.  We usually get a apple pie from Whole Foods, but since I wasn't interested in making the trip or dealing with peoples' creeping crud, we're skipping the apple pie.  Maybe next year...

Other than that, today has been quiet.

Although I am not posting like I used to...I at least come by after taking my pills and before brushing my teeth.

We had a great Thanksgiving, I'm currently getting my added sugar addiction under control, so far I now work with my parents on incentivizing the process of brushing one's teeth because my teeth are worthy of a book for British and British-American rotten teeth.

I had to go through dental surgery 3 times in my life. If I ever get the money, I am going to send away for false teeth that can be installed with a label say "Made in Lichtenstein"

Lately, tonight is one I will sleep in during the morning.

To all the companies and businesses that are up in my grill today,

Telling me that I need to buy all the things that I don't need is not going to get you what you want.  There are only two things I want this year; neither are expensive. Headphones that I've been talking about replacing for over a year now and still haven't bought and a transfer cable.   There was talk yet again about buying a robot vacuum cleaner, but that's just a fantasy.  I'd buy one, then regret it when the battery no longer holds a charge like the Dyson vacuum cleaner.  Why bother going through that situation again; it's not worth it.

As for the rest of the household, there are other cables needed / wanted so that all the things are connected to the TV and The Boy will want a steam card.  The rents will be sent a gift card so they can buy whatever they want or need.   Since they now have a puppy, it will probably be spent on dog toys and that's okay.

This is the extent of Christmas shopping in this house.  We've already shelled out a few thousand to have the house re-plumbed and another couple thousand to have the car fixed.  I'm over the whole spending money thing, thankyouverymuch.

I know you [companies and businesses] are going to continue to bug me from today up until well after the new year, but ya'll can talk to the paw because the ears are not listening.
