My Day




So I'm working from home, waiting for a delivery from Home Depot so Grimjack and I can finish our much-awaited patio out back before a family party on Saturday. Right now, the backyard contains a 6' by 18' 8-inch deep hole, filled to the brim with this week's rainwater runoff from the yard. We may have to stock the moat with Koi, and I'll finally have that pond I've always wanted.
Grimjack dug that, with some help from Number One Stepson.

Can't use the yard with a moat in it, and Little Grim can't be left outside to play unattended. Of course, Canine Grim loves it and now also cannot be left outside unattended, due to the swimming that occurs, as evidenced by the pic. Who doesn't love mud?

Part of the delivery came yesterday, but you know how these things go...It wasn't all there, and I was assured that the remaining materials would be delivered today by noon. Well, low and behold, noon came and went. So I called the store, much annoyed, and was finally told by the Delivery Coordinator "Mrs. Grim, I am doing everything I can for you", to which I replied, "I don't think you are or I would have had the whole delivery yesterday when I was supposed to". He used his insincere, ingratiating 'customer service' voice. I get the feeling he uses that phrase multiple times per day.


Anyway, here I am with a moat, still waiting for the delivery. I think I'll punt to Grimjack on making the next call to the store. Stay tuned....

Almost a month ago. It's been a blur. She was adopted at the pound as a stray. We think because of her tendacy to pee a lot.

The cats hate her. (stupid things).
