TT #9: random this week

Thirteen random things about this week

  • Wednesday I had a petshelter committee meeting at 5pm. A very inconvenient time and I've told them so. The new chairman wanted it to be the fixed time for the meetings. I stood up for myself and said no. Yay, I'm proud of me!
  • Bastet has been to the vet for her vaccination and to get a chip. She is doing great!
  • Ron is at home with a burn-out. He has to get a lot of rest, especially in his head. I help him wherever I can, but I feel so powerless.
  • Monday he had to go to his company doctor. We couldn't find the building, so Ron was even more stressed when we finally got there. The doctor was very understanding.
  • I have to take care of myself to be able to be there for Ron. I can't help him if I am too tired or stressed myself, but I have to be reminded sometimes...
  • Today we'll go to Lier in Belgium, where a friend of us is staying for a week.
  • It is something over two hours to drive, but Ron loves to drive so it'll be relaxation for him.
  • This week Ron has built in the car navigation. I'm glad because I totally rely on it for long drives and places I've never been before.
  • I'm not home to add all of your links, but please leave them in the comments and I'll add them a.s.a.p. I'll visit them all!
  • The aquaspinning season has started again. It is tough to get into it. I was exhausted but I'll see it through. I like it very much!
  • I'm still "clinching" with Oxxio, my mother's power supllier. I did everything to end it in the best way possible, but they just don't seem to want to understand... They have even hired a collection agency to get the money they aren't entitled to. Grrr....
  • Ron has tidied up the garage. I really need to do the same upstairs, but there's still a lot of mum's stuff and I'm not sure whether I'm ready for that.
  • The day after tomorrow there will be a fair in Velsen-Zuid (same district as IJmuiden). We'll be early, because there will also be an unregulated street market for kids.

I have Blogger Beta. If you have classic Blogger and don't allow anonymous comments, I can't leave a comment on your blog. I'm sorry! Blogger will fix that later. In the meantime I can recommend Blogger Beta!
