Each week we should ask ourselves, "what have I done to further my goals?"
I cured an infected finger...after bragging about Kaiser's new system where you can email your doctor for advice or a quick prescription, I found a glitch. If your doctor goes on vacation someone should be able to review the inbox but they don't! I took ibuprofen 2 times a day to help keep the swelling down. I soaked my finger in warm water a couple times each day. I also bandaged it with an antiseptic towelette under a bandaid. I massaged it (really I rubbed it a lot, which really hurt) to try to push some of the pussy gunk that was building up in my finger out. Disgusting! It's almost better and will be by the end of the weekend.
I had a safe installed. I placed all my ammunition in it plus the few guns that I have. I put my coins in it too. I gave the combination to two out of town relatives whom I trust. It's an easy to remember combination because I remember it by months. For example, if the number is 27 then I could call it Lincoln Ford for Lincoln's Birthday (February the 2nd month) and Ford's (the 7th month). A combination of 27-49-6 would then be Lincoln Ford Jefferson Taft Russell Bush1. Of course, I use family birthdays of brothers, sisters, kids, parents, grandparents, etc. A zero uses a nonexistent name, for example there hasn't been a president Russell.
I put together my shelf greenhouse. It's against a brick wall. This is a metal shelf (four shelves) that I have aluminum foil taped to the entire back side and plastic sheeting going over the top and the other three sides. The temperature the other day got up to 80 degrees inside my greenhouse although the outside temp was about 55. I'm going to make sure it doesn't get too hot and cook my plants. This coming weekend I'm planning on planting some of my earliest seeds.
I cleaned out my closet...sort of. I was given about 100 pairs of shoes many years ago. They are all great shoes. They are comfortable, they fit perfectly, and cost over $100 each pair, which I wouldn't ever spend that kind of money on shoes except for good boots! But I did the same thing to these shoes that I do to my clothes each January. If I didn't wear them in two years they had to go. I got rid of more than half the shoes. It really hurt because of the sentimental value...they belonged to an aunt. But it's ridiculous that I wanted to keep as many as I did. Sometimes we keep stupid stuff because of the sentimental value. Take a picture and get rid of it, unless you want to overload your home with so much that you don't have room to breathe. The shoes now have good homes in someone else's overstuffed closet.
I started working on the hedgerow out front.
I spent no money on food at any restaurant or fast food place. I spent no money on prepackaged food for any of the meals we made at home.
I bought 9 boxes of ammunition.
This week was a very good week. What have you done?
