I am trying to get enough energy to go to Costco. My neighbour will even drive me, but I am afraid my get-up-and-go has got up and went.

I guess TB and I will be going in the morning before he goes to work.

Measuring our carryon bags. Some airline task force, with their perfect wisdom, is encouraging airlines to reduce the current size limits of the standard carryon bag, meaning most people will have to buy new ones if the airlines go with their recommendations.

But guess what? Our current ones fit the "new" dimensions! I don't have to buy any! Ours are pretty new, and I did think they looked a bit smaller than what I've seen others trying to cram into the overhead bins, so yay!

It's crazy to see how much people carry to avoid bag fees. I've given in and pay them. For me it's worth not having to find a space which may or may not be near my seat and then schlepping my bags around an airport to make a connection. The airline wins because I don't want to be inconvenienced.

A reasonable sized carry-on is one thing but I've seen people board with ridiculous amounts of stuff.

What are you doing?

Yup, me too. I see plenty of folks carry on with almost full-sized bags that should have been checked. Though it doesn't help that the airlines keep trying to squeeze every nickle from the passengers, while also squeezing more passengers into smaller spaces.

Used to be, first checked bag was free, now it's $25 per checked. And lord forbid it would be a pound over, that'll cost an extra $50. We always take a luggage scale, as the airline scales are rarely calibrated.

Well some of my get-up-and-go came back! My neighbour drove me to Costco and I got all that I needed!

I had a very weird day at work, and didn't create anything impressive for dinner, then I took a little nap.

DH is in college, since now he can with the help of the VA, and so I was proofreading his English class assignment. I corrected it, and explained why certain things were wrong.

Mom was an English teacher. Poor DH is having fits with this class, and right now I am looking up illegal recreational pharmaceuticals for myself so I can get him through this class without running the risk of acquiring PTSD along the way.

Just kidding! Actually I have the oven on the nuclear self-cleaning cycle and waiting for the wash to finish so I can load it into the dryer. I'm also watching three terrorist kittens trying to kill each other.

Good thing we have a great veterinarian.
