Tenebrific Thursday Travails Tend To Thrill!
Last Update: Sep 22, 2022
Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!
I stayed up a bit later than I wanted to feverishly working on my latest manuscript that will be part of phase two of my Holiday book promotions!
Of course, my first order of the day, aside from caring for the furry assistants, was to climb right on into the Wealthy Affiliate Community!
For a welcome change, Kitty showed up too! It is always motivational when she decides to show up for work!
It rained off and on for most of the night last night, and that is part of the "cold front" that we are experiencing for the next few days.
In fact, we are still getting slight dustings of rain even now. At my first break of the day, I captured the title image and the ones below too!
Overcast and rainy seems to be the theme for this new day!
I will, unless I catch a locksmith job today, of course, be working on my newest book manuscript as part of my Holiday promotion, but also will continue with posting another post on my book promotion website.
All of these ongoing endeavors are a critical part of my daily Wealthy Affiliate research. This is another habit that I have developed.
I did not hear from Monica after that initial early call yesterday, and I haven't heard from her today, either (yet, anyway, but I am not counting on it). She must be in one of her moods again, but I wish her well on her last day off before another 4-day, 40 hour work week coming up tomorrow.
The Blog Dogs seemed to be having some fun on the ottoman when I walked out to see what they were doing. I will be feeding them their main meal of today shortly.
I made a hamburger using a small hoagie bun.
After a short dry period outside, they came in and scarfed their food down, which had some drippings from the burger on it.
They enjoyed it, as always!
Monica finally called me not long after that, and talked to me about the surgery she is contemplating. She even texted me a picture of her x-rays. She will go through with it, and I told her that I wholeheartedly supported her decision, and that I would help wherever I could.
I started working on the book some more, and it wasn't long before Monica called again, and told me to come outside!
She had just pulled up. Apparently she had to pick up her aunt's prescription, and since her aunt lives three blocks away, she stopped to see me too!
What a nice surprise! We talked for about 15 minutes and she showed me the book that she had gotten from the doctor's office yesterday. Then we parted ways again.
The rest of my day suddenly seemed like Grand Central Station, since, no sooner than I had settled back down at the computer, Tommy Williams was knocking at the door.
He showed me a bill for $4,000 from the city for cleanup at one of Frank's old properties that he bought across town. Apparently, the work had been performed on September 9th.
I hurriedly got dressed, and went with him over to Frank's house first, to discuss it with Frank.
Then Tommy and I went to talk to the City Inspector. Suffice it to say that, for right now, it is owed, but it is complicated, and we will be working to get that resolved too. Sylvester figures into this situation as well.
We then went and looked at the progress at the warehouse property, and it seems to be moving along quite well, but it needs to hurry up a little. I then assisted Tommy with moving a couple of things around inside his shop for about 2 hours.
Since he had everything opened up and I was ready to leave, I called Monica to come and get me since I knew that she would be leaving to go pick up Samantha from school, and I knew it was right on her way.
She did, and I convinced her to let Samantha walk the Blog Dogs with me, since she has wanted to do this for some time, and the temperature was in the low 60s.
They have also needed a walk for quite some time, anyway.
I walked Shadow. Sorry, the images still skew to the left. It is very annoying and I hope this gets corrected soon. I like a clean post, and the scattered images make it look tacky.
Anyway, I at least managed to get to see Monica and an added bonus of Samantha one more time, even though it was only for a half hour at best. They left to go home and prepare dinner, and I'll remain here at the eBay house with the Blog Dogs and Kitty. Sometimes I feel like we're stranded on the Island of Misfit Toys!
The rest of my evening will be spent on the phone and the computer working on my newest book and a blog post for my book promotion site!
I HOPE EVERYONE HERE HAD AN EXCELLENT THURSDAY, WHICH IS ANOTHER FRISATSU'S EVE! ANOTHER FRISATSU BEGINS TOMORROW! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
Jeff, the BLOG DOGS, and Kitty
