GSD Week of May 2

Better late than never. Sunday and Monday were both hectic hence the delay. Ready for the week, my friends.

  • RIDE BIKE HOME FROM BIKE LOCKER AT WORK (Three weeks I’ve been meaning to do this. Last week the weather was too crappy to attempt it so perhaps this week will be the charm) I am setting a date for this. Lets say Thursday.
  • Shred documents currently in garage locker (Week #2 on the list. Whoops.) Get them out of garage Monday night! and put back in car to take to shredder
  • Exchange shoe polish at target for saddle soap which is what you actually meant to buy
  • Resume reading “One Up on Wall Street”
  • Look for prescription from primary care physician and compare it to one from Dermatologist
  • Pray car’s AC starts working again. If not successful by end of the week, need to go get this quoted to fix. SunnuvaBword.

  • Tuesday Dinner at Anderson’s @ 6/6:30
  • Walk Lennon on Wednesday
