Tried to get to writing today, but had too many errands to run. Got some Zumaya work done though. And I got my new glasses ordered. I can’t wait! I think I’m getting a bit of a headache from the broken ones.

Had to go sign a paper at the insurance company, and she discovered that our house was being covered for a basement. Since we live over a cave system, I don’t think a basement would be very practical… Removing it from the policy took over $100 off the yearly premium. Glad I went by.

On the way home, I stopped to take care of another errand, and my truck wouldn’t start. Since the battery sat for six months and ran completely down, I have rather been expecting it to give up the ghost at some point. Luckily it was in the parking lot connected to the Firestone we go to, so I got it replaced fairly easily. I feel much more secure about driving the truck now!

Newell decided to get contacts instead of glasses at his appointment, and felt that the beard went better with glasses, so he shaved it all off. Here are shots of his transformation…it came in stages:


With the full beard                             Dissipated British Soldier


Crazy German…                                Handsome Husband


Yum! Though it always makes me feel even older when he looks so young and handsome. 😉


Back to the grind tomorrow. No errands except the grocery store for cat food and soda! So I should be able to get some cleaning done before Lauren comes to help on Friday.

  1. Having a hubby who switches between the “wolfman” beard and his goatee, I know where you’re coming from. But I’ve never seen him completed shaven – and we’ve been together for 6 years 😀
