Not sure why I wasn't sent out today, but if I don't get a run for tomorrow sent to me by 5 pm, I'll be talking to my manager - again.  We are allegedly in a busy season but I've been sitting for 2 days after last load and also last scenario I was sitting 2 days. But, this paycheck coming tomorrow - which I can go online and see a day in advance, is much larger than I expected it to be.  I figured maybe a $400 gross paycheck, it's over a grand.  I don't remember that many runs on this check. And, I can't see what I'm getting paid for - still - so I'll have to contact the payroll person - again - to send me the details.  It's next week's check that should be quite healthy.  2 or 3 runs on it and 3 plus days of sitting at a repair shop.

Still, that "extra" money this week will come in handy cause I plan on taking my SUV into the dealer and getting the struts replaced.  I dread - really - going over to the other house to get my Jeep. I don't want to see Rene, I don't want to talk to Rene, I don't want anything to do with her at all.  My dogs won't be going over there again until she is gone, I do not trust her and I don't put anything past her.  I really don't think she would spite me by doing something to my dogs, but that little thing inside me says take extra precautions.  I'll pay my friends something extra to watch them while I"m out of town.

Anyway, it's Thursday and Taylor took a day off today  So, we went to Ollie's - they have ceiling fans on great sale! But, getting there, they didn't have half the fans that the advertisement showed. The big fans weren't available and none were coming in.  That's what I wanted,  a big fan for my room. With a remote.  Well, Ollie's didn't have what Taylor wanted, either so we went to Walmart.  Walmart has some higher end fans, but none with remote control.  The problem with those pull chain fans is that the chains eventually break or the switch they are connected to breaks.  Either way, that's the end of the fan and  you have to replace it.

So, after Walmart, Taylor asks if we should go anywhere else?  Well, I guess we can go to Lowe's.  Lowe's has a huge ceiling fan section and they have every single on of them set up from a lowered ceiling so you can see what it will look like instead of having to guess from a picture.  I settled on a huge one with 7 blades and 6 speeds, remote control of course.  So I have that project to do and I may very well get started on it after this post.

But first, I had to put up the new Futon.  I got rid of the old one yesterday - placed an ad in local Facebook Marketplace and had a person wanting it within a few minutes.

Decatur, Alabama. Got there last night - decided I didn't have enough hours to offload - about an hour and 15 minutes on the clock, tak...
