Wednesday 4/11/2012

They had put a run in our truck routing system to take 2 large machines up to a contractor up in the mountains for delivery tomorrow.  And then 2 hours later, they removed it. Ouch!!! I haven't been out of town in the semi in quite a long time now.  In fact, most of the runs I am doing take me no more than 10 miles away from the yard.  Kinda gets old after a while, a little mix-it-up once in a while would be nice.

But I guess that ain't happening this week.  

I came home from work yesterday and Duke was sick. I was like, NOT AGAIN.  He was very warm, like he had a fever so I gave him a couple of low dosage aspirin, fed him some treats because he wouldn't touch his regular dog food and then thought about the possibility of yet another dog going down.

So with great relief this morning to find his temp back down and an extremely hungry dog.  Hopefully whatever it was is gone and no longer a factor.

Getting warm again around these parts, but I guess the temps are supposed to go back down.  Yesterday's high was 93, today's is slated to be 81.  I heard news commentators complaining about the "cold" - my gosh, do these people LIKE 115 degree heat?!!

I attempted to find a microwave yesterday for the trailer that would fit into the cupboard that is made for it.  Well, unfortunately, the only thing that is going to fit in there is a smaller unit with lower wattage.  If I were going to live in the thing, I might have an issue with it, but since it's just a getaway trailer for here and there usage, I will just have to go ahead and get the smaller, lower wattage unit.  Hey, it's only $60 for one of those compared to $149 for a much nicer one.

I am also still looking for a refrigerator.  Tenants have that small one packed full of their stuff.  Not that I can actually afford a refrigerator right now, but maybe if I can get a bigger one in here I can sell the smaller one for $100 and recoup most of the loss.  That refrigerator is only 4 years old, plenty of life left in it, just that it's only an 18 cubic foot (or 16, I can't remember which) and that is tiny for 3 people using it on a daily basis. 

Ummm, time to be off for work.  Have to go in earlier than normal for - what else - another run into the Intel plant.  

G'day.
