    I haven't paid cash for groceries in a few years, I always use a debit card, even for small purchases...I like cash for getting fuel though, I never pay at the pump with a card...

    Final delivery yesterday. Gotta go rent an electric staple gun and put down our new stair runners. This should be the last touch to all the interior updating we've done. Happy with the results, getting sick of doing it.

    Yesterday I found myself sitting in the garage staring out the door at the pouring rain with a blank look on my face. Not meditating, not even idling.A 220 lb lump of .... putty. I think I may have to set aside some time today to do that .... very relaxing.

    Ian loves his new hoverboard.
    He immediately shared it with his younger brother Chris. It was Amazing to see him and Chris taking turns riding it. then the grandparents gave him a solar balloon. Again we watched as they prepared for flight.
    the Balloon almost went 500feet up. not bad for the kids! (and no the balloon wont lift eather of them )

    After having my credit card information stolen numerous times in the past few years I decided on a new course of action. I now have two debit cards. My main card with most of my account cash I use strictly at my credit union office, no place else. The second debit card I have around a thousand dollars balance to use at the gas pump only.

    I try to use my credit card sparingly and only have my information stored at places like Amazon. It doesn’t help when you have Russian and Chinese thieves working night and day to steal people’s card information.

    No school like old school, and this is the original one-room schoolhouse. Been going here since 1983 and this man and his shop have been a fixture to me and many, many people I know. Went there for my annual inspection yesterday and he told me that he's retiring and passing on the business to somebody else. Caught me by surprise and I am slightly more affected by it than I would have thought. Knew it was coming, just not right then and there. This place absolutely drips coolness - if I hit a Lotto ticket I'd buy the damned place as is from him and use it for my own junque. He's got real hot rod stuff packed away and the place just has that super-cool vibe that has to be made over a long time.

    I wish Tom well and will miss him.

    If you are scared about the virus situation we all together are going to get through this. Let just use our brains and follow the safety precautions. It may take some time for this to all work out but if people work together we can all stay safe and alive.

    As the twins get close to their 18th birthday we are confronted with challenges and difficulties I would say all parents face. 1st kate who is now identified as a " butch lesbian " Who openly discusses her sexuality with us and her accepting sister. she knows she is female but has "butch" tendency.
    Then Debbie who is discussing starting a physical relationship with her boyfriend almost as soon as her birthday.
    I knew this day would come.. I hope we are up to the challenge

    From Kate's FB:

    Dear Diary 2020 Edition,
    In ❄️ January, Australia caught on fire. I don’t even know if that fire was put out, because we straight up almost went to war with Iran . We might actually still be almost at war with them . I don’t know, because Jen Aniston and Brad Pitt spoke to one another at an awards show and everyone flipped the crap out , but then there was this thing happening in China, then Prince Harry and Megan ✌ peaced out of the Royal family, and there was the whole impeachment trial ‍⚖️ , and then corona virus showed up in the US ✔️“officially,” but then Kobe died and UK peaced out of the European Union.

    In February, Iowa crapped itself with the caucus results and the president was acquitted and the ‍Speaker of the House took ten. Whole. years. to rip up a speech , but then The‍ WHO decided to give this virus a name COVID-19, which confused some really important people in charge of, like, our lives, into thinking there were 18 other versions before it, but then Harvey Weinstein was found guilty‍⚖️, and Americans started asking if Corona beer was safe to drink‍♀️, and everyone on Facebook became a doctor ‍⚕️ who just knew the flu like killed way more people than COVID 1 through 18.

    In March, stuff hit the fan. Warren dropped out of the presidential race and Sanders was like Bernie or bust , but then Italy shut its whole country down , and then COVID Not 1 through 18 officially become what everyone already realized, a pandemic and then a nationwide state of emergency was declared in US , but it didn’t really change anything, so everyone was confused or thought it was still just a flu ‍♀️, but then COVID Not 18 was like ya’ll not taking me seriously? I’m gonna infect the one celebrity everyone loves and totally infected Tom Hanks, get y’all to close all of the schools so y’all can appreciate teachers ‍ for once (because you can’t teach them anything other than how to use a touch screen‍♀️ ) close down all of salons so you can’t get your ‍♂️ hair or your nails done , everyone had to work from home and attend Zoom meetings in their underwear. The DOW took a crap on itself, and most of us still don’t understand why the stock market is so important or even a thing (I still don’t), We were then all introduced to Tiger King and the ONE thing we can all agree on this year , Carol totally killed her husband⚰️ ..... whacked him! And then Netflix was like you’re welcome, and we all realized there was no way we were washing our hands enough in the first place because all of our hands are now dry and gross and were all searching for lotion now.

    In April, Bernie finally busted✌ himself out of the presidential race , but then NYC became the set of The Walking Dead and we learned that no one has face masks , ventilators, or toilet paper, or THE FREAKING SWIFFER WET JET LIQUID , and by now our outgrowth is showing, so there’s a shortage on box hair dye and all of our hair dressers are like , NO DONT DO IT!!! But, then Kim Jong-Un died, but then he came back to life … or did he? Who knows, because then the Pentagon released videos of UFOs and nobody cared, and we were like man, it’s only April….

    In May, the biblical end times kicked off , historical locust swarms, we learned of murder hornets and realized that 2020 was the start of the Hunger Games however people forgot to let us know. people legit started to protest lockdown measures with AR-15s, ⚾️sports events were cancelled everywhere. But then people all over America finally reached a breaking point with race issues and violence. There were protests in every city ,which was confusing to some of us because people were definitely gathering in crowds of more than 10 and for sure closer than 6 foot away ⬅️➡️from each other . Those people must have forgotten about the pandemic called COVID Not One Through 18. Media struggled with how to focus on two important things at once, people in general struggle to focus on more than one important thing. A dead whale was found in the middle of the Amazon rain forest after monkeys stole COVID 1 Through 19 from a lab and ran off with them, and either in May or April (no one is keeping track of time now) that a giant asteroid ☄️ narrowly missed the Earth.

    In ☀️ June, common sense just got thrown straight out the window and somehow wearing masks became a political thing, but then everyone sort of remembered there was a pandemic, then ‍scientists announced they found a mysterious undiscovered mass at the center of the earth, and everyone was like ‍♂️‍♀️DON’T YOU DARE TOUCH IT, but then everyone took a pause to realize that people actually believed Gone With The Wind was like non-fiction, but then it was also announced that there is a strange radio signal coming from somewhere in the universe that repeats itself every so many days , and everyone was like DON’T YOU DARE ATTEMPT TO COMMUNICATE WITH IT‼️ but then America reopened from the shut down that actually wasn’t even a shut down, and so far, things have gone spectacularly .... not that great . All of the Karen’s came out at once, and people started tearing down statues. Everyone is on Facebook arguing ‍♀️ about masks , but then Florida was like hold my beer and let me show you how we’re number one in all things, including new Not Corona Beer Coronavirus. Then we learned there was a massive dust cloud ☁️ coming straight at us from the Sahara Desert , which is totally normal, but this is 2020, so the ghost mummy thing is most likely in that dust cloud. We then learned of meth-gators , and I'm like that is so not on my flipping 2020 Bingo card can we use it as the free space?? Then we learned that the Congo's worst ever Ebola outbreak is over , and we were all like, there was an Ebola outbreak that was the worse ever? ....... and don’t forget we just discovered FLYING SNAKES! , seriously! FLYING SNAKES!!!!

    So here comes July…. at this point we are over it , just tell us what’s next .... Aliens? Zeus? ☄️ Asteroids? Artificial Intelligence becomes self aware? Like I expect to see Terminators hunting us!Can it just be something cool or fun for once? Maybe even a good laugh , like hahaha April Fools! We all actually wouldn’t mind that joke at this point.

    Also, why didn't I know about the whale in the Amazon? Or a few other things because I just can’t keep up anymore!
    Oh did I mention in August I turn 18?
    And I get to vote (censored by Dad)
    out of office? And I can do what the (censored ) I want and I can (censored)


    And so it goes.

    My horoscope for today said this lol:

    "Try to get as much work done as possible. Within a few days, the desire to be industriously active will be replaced by the urge to loll under a tree, while holding a beverage with a parasol in it."
