Or rather parts of Long Island are returning to normal. We went to the north shore yesterday to go to Fourth World Comics and the Barnes and Noble at Smithhaven Mall. Along the way we found gas stations open with no lines so we were able to turn that half a tank of gas into a tank of gas so our fuel crises seems to be easing finally out here where I am.
That is not to make light of all the problems that still exist on other parts of the Island and in the Boroughs of New York City. There are still major problems there and we need not to forget these people who are still picking up the pieces of their lives.
Today Caroline is off from school for Veteran’s Day. Thank you to all Veterans and their family for serving our country. My freedoms are safe because of your service. A special thank you to members of my family that served in the military.
Football was a mixed bag. All of the teams I like lost. A number of teams I don’t like that much lost. Needless to say my picks were garbage this week.
Speaking of garbage or rather recycling. This week is paper recycling and boy howdy do I have some since I haven’t been able to put out paper for over a month due to rain/snow/sleet. However there is supposes to be rain coming through on Tuesday. I am going to put the paper out Wednesday morning because I really need to get it out of here.
The cats went through another round of “Who’s the Alpha Cat”. Stalin won again. Fig just stayed out of it unless one of the two grey cats attacked her. She mostly hid during the battles. Millie keeps trying for the title but hasn’t gotten past Stalin.
Word count 13754 on the NaNoWriMo project. I know I am about three days behind now. Let’s see if I can make it up this week. Either way I am going to make myself write more on it. I seem to be able to get to about 20,000 and then throw my hands up for the rest of the month. Yes, I have things to do but if I put it in 1000 word chunks, that about 40 minutes to an hour for me. So one hour writing and then two hours doing something else that needs to be done might be the way to go to catch up.
I have two projects that MUST BE DONE before Thanksgiving or rather within the next week so I can get them back or to their owners. I feel bad about it and as long as these things hang over my head, I am not going any further forward.
I watched the Firefly 10th year anniversary special last night. Makes me want to make the Firefly puppets and send them to Joss so he can do his puppet show. Might want to have those done by Farpoint.
Need more coooofffeeee. Brain is still fuzzy.
May I say yet again plantar fascia really sucks. It is progressively getting worse even with all the preventative measures I have been taking. Makes exercising a little more difficult to really painful.
I am grateful that the gas situation seems to be getting back to more normal around here. I know that it is not perfect but at least it is no longer the panic that it was.
