Sort of unrelated, but what is heating oil? Is it to heat your house? You don't use natural gas for that?

That's Joe Btfsplk! He walked around with a little black cloud over his head. I know him well because a family member used to say that was me! One day after years of hearing this I finally said to this person "if you stop telling me I have a black cloud I might be able to get from under it". Our relationship and my confidence got better after that!

Yes heating fuel. I don't have natural gas for heating.

There was a 2.0 earthquake New Jersey at just after 1:00am 11/5/12.

Someone doesn't like NJ!!

I am wondering what is going to happen next. I am deciding if I want to go wait on a gas line to fill up my car.

Awww, MSM. All that stuff is just piling on at this point! Maybe the 2.0 was all the good vibes from us DCers arriving at once! We're sure pulling for you to get some good news today.

That is my personal black cloud. Please send it back. I need it. I was wondering where it went the day I got news that my eye surgery was really going to happen. and one for you. Looks like you might need a few of them right now.

how is your day going today, msm? i was just reading through your recent posts, and came across georgie, the adorable kitty you saved from the neighbor's abuse. is georgie still with you? what pretty facial markings he has--such a cutie. i hope you have been able to be together during this stormy, stressful time--survivors of super storm sandy, and its most difficult aftermath. i hope you are able to get the gasoline and heating oil that you need, and real soon. try to keep in mind that this is a very temporary, though terrible situation, with difficult circumstances, that you are meeting with great purpose and determination. you and your loved ones are together and unhurt. normalcy will return, hopefully sooner rather than later, to your daily life, and you will be able to put this calamity behind you. your dc friends are with you, msm, during these troubling times. know that you are in our thoughts, that prayers go out regularly to keep you safe and strong.... :)

I just got my ceiling fixed. There was a big crack and it has been there since I moved in five years ago. Every year when they have inspections of the apartments, that crack went on the list to be repaired. It had become a joke. Louie did a good job of repairing and cleaning up after. But he missed a big blob of compound that dropped on the rug. I am glad I found it before it hardened. I poured water on it and got out the scrub brush. All gone! That is work I am not used to doing. Left me out of breath.

All my furniture is on wheels. Made doing the job so much easier. Now I have to vacuum up the small pieces of plaster he missed. I also have to get dressed and deliver the food for the church. I meant to do it Saturday. I was so harried that day that I forgot. Today is going to be busy day. I don't knw what I will be ble to do after the surgery. I am sure limitations will be placed on me.
