Wednesday Woes

I woke up at 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday. I had some instant oatmeal (trying to use up the box) and my pills for breakfast.Then I shaved, showered and got dressed for a 9:30 a.m. haircut.

It started to get steamy during my haircut. Michelle (my barber for years) noticed it first.

Sidebar: The barber shop uses a screen door before turning on the A/C.

So, I left the place with great hair, but sweating.

I drove to the Secretary of State's office on Wayne Road. It would have been closer to go to the super center on Farmington and Six Mile Road, but that place is a mad house.

Sidebar: I finally got the release of lien from Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation for my paid-off truck. It said, in bold letters: Please note: In order to obtain a clear title, these documents must be taken to your local department of motor vehicles to complete the title transfer to you.

I waited over an hour (and that was just to get into the handicap seat). When I finally got my turn, the lady said, "Oh, honey, you don't need to have us do anything. Just staple the documents to your title and file it away."

WTF?

I drove back home, taking Hines Drive to Inkster to calm down.

I had to go to CVS so, on a whim, I popped in next door and got my usual order of chicken fried rice. Then I ran the truck through the touch-less car wash.

I left the truck outside in the sun, treated the cat and then dried the truck off.

I still left it outside while I went inside and ate lunch. Then I changed clothes and designed the last two jigs for the toy box.

I went in the garage,opened the door (it was hot in there) and cut out the pieces I needed. I screwed the one together and used the brad nailer to assemble the other.

For attaching the birch veneer edging


For sanding the lid
I cleaned up the mess, set the jigs aside, put the saw horses away and pulled the truck inside.

Once everything was buttoned up, I went inside and took a long nap.

I ate the rest of the chicken fried rice for dinner.

I watched TV but the nap did me in. I couldn't fall asleep until 1:30 a.m.
