Glad you're basically OK. And about that fat? I know everyone's aftersurgery life is different, but years later and to this day she has to be careful to not stray too far from "the facilities" when she eats french fries. That's it - just french fries. Go figure.

I am about to have my third small meal of the day. I am being very careful about fat and am feeling much better.

My project for the day is laundry. TB did a load here and there, but there is still a pileup and some to fold. I like the idea of picking one task per day and being able to see it through rather than tackling too much and not getting anything completed and being exhausted.

I'm still working on the guest bedroom. Another day of discovery! 6 pairs of fins, 4 snorkels, along with other miscellaneous snorkeling stuff. We like what we're using right now for equipment, so I need to figure out what to do with all the extras. Snorkeling isn't a common pastime up here, but Goodwill might just get it anyway.

Do you know of any summer camps in your area, or even that you could mail the equipment too?

Not a bad idea, LP. I thought about the local HS too. We actually know a couple divemasters who live in town (!) so that may be another way to go.

I got home from paying the mortgage, tanking up, and grocery shopping about an hour ago. Still recuperating from that.

I hate putting air in the tires when it's cold out. It's Thursday, so Ultramar gives a 3/litre discount on premium gas. It was still $1.524/litre. Good thing I only needed half a tank of gas to full.

My Jeep has had a low tire since I bought it. And of course there's a warning display for that I have to look at all the time.
You aren't the only one who hates putting air in tires in the winter. I'm holding out until it's 60F, lol.

With this warm/cold warm/cold pattern that we've been having it is totally confusing my tire sensors. one day it is on, the next off, then on for a week, and so on!

I'm pretty sure the other three are going to come one before I get the one aired up
Actually, I thought I would have it into the dealer for something by now and was going to have them do it, but it's been running fine.

No, your tire sensors are not confused. If the pressure is right when it's warmer, it's not necessarily high enough when it gets colder. The pressure in the tires drops in the cold.
