My May 2017 -
1 - We now officially have California car insurance and I learned where the closest post office is located.
2- Those HOA fees are worth it in terms of prompt service as we now have new drip irrigation hoses and a new bush to fill a bare spot once it grows a bit!
5 - It took two tries but we found an ATM near our house that takes our credit union cards and doesn't charge so we are in the money again.
6 - Big decision is love the paint color that is already on the walls!
7 - My baby with his baby in Santa Barbara for brunch - happy day!
9 - What did we do before the internet?
10 - Poor doggie stepped on a bee and got stung, then threw up & messed on the carpet, went to the vet & got lots of medications, but hopefully better now.
11 - Attended a very interesting talk about a dam failure in the late 1920's that flooded this area.
12 - Hubby is out of town, pup is still under the weather a bit and it is too darn quiet in the house.
13 - Went to the HOA Spring Cleaning sale and bought myself a fun bracelet for $5 and supported the golf club at the same time.
14 - Mother's Day at my son and DIL's with the my pooch & their pooch was so great.
16 - Whew, first hairdresser I tried in my new location did a great job!
18 - Met the new dog groomer and she is a sweetheart.
19 - We passed the air duct leakage test requirement and now have to schedule the city inspection of our new HVAC installation to finish that project.
20 - Visiting one mattress store, lunch with FIL and great aunt, and towel shopping at Kohl's is about all we can handle today.
21 - Visited another mattress store and then went back to first one and decided on less expensive option.
22 - Sat at the car dealer service department for only 1 1/2 hours to get a recalled air bag replaced, bought new kitchen towels, went to the library and got a fun Mother's Day gift and lovely card in today's mail.
24 - Bad moods abound.
25 - Ordered 2 mattress sets and frames so in about a week we should be sleeping more comfortably.
26 - An overcast, cool day spent on errands and laundry.
27 - A non-memorable but pleasant day that included a long after dinner walk.
28 - A lovely lunch with online friends including one from Australia!
29 - My older son stopped by to visit which made me very happy to have moved close so this could happen.
30 - More progress on settling into our new home with the carpet and upholstery cleaning completed!
