    Well, I am moving my oldest daughter and her two cats from the Bay Area to Houston, TX. We are loading the trailer on Saturday, and setting out on Sunday, hoping to arrive on Tuesday.

    I’m driving a Highlander, pulling a 5×8 UHaul trailer. The cats each get their own kennel in the back of the Highlander. Wish me luck.Report

      Got my August worries out of the way today. Closed on the sale of the house my wife and I owned, that my daughter and her family had been living in, to said daughter. Now the things that they want to do to the house is their problem, and our retirement finances are simpler.

      The woman who handled the closing was happy that we had all the information necessary. She entertained us with tales of screwed-up private-sale closings while we signed a few dozen documents.Report

    This week has been a whole year. (A friend of mine asked yesterday: “Is it just me or has this week been four Mondays?”). Lots of upsetting things happening along with having to cope with the big ongoing thing, but the less said about them now, the better.

    Saturday morning the tree guy comes to deal with one of the upsetting things; after that I think I’m going to go in to the office; I am close to getting partially caught up on the research that I got so far behind on. (I’ll never get back the August 2019 sampling period, but even if I were in town it was brutally hot and maybe unsafe to go out and sample). Monday, if it’s not death hot (or if I can get myself out there very early in the morning) I can get the next sample.

    So a working long weekend, I guess, but it’s going to be the only way to be anything like caught up.

    And then Tuesday I have an appointment with a CPA to try to deal with another of the upsetting things…Report

    It’s the first weekend of the semester for me. Getting a tattoo, going to a concert at the state fair with my wife, and I really need to mow some weeds in my front yard. My allergies have been killing me the last few weeks, payback for a relatively mild summer.Report

    Tonight is the first big college football game, and as we are a PAC-12* school, it is against someone who will kick our tails, Oklahoma State. Traffic will be backed up from here to Portland, an hour-and-a-half away. So, I will be doing everything possible to be as far away from the stadium as I can.

    Other than that, I have some woodwork on my porch to take care of, so underneath I go to sister some of the 100+-year-old boards that have been standing the test of time. Oh, and I might take a jaunt up to Portland.

    *I was born in a PAC-8 town, as was my mother. It should still be PAC-8.Report

    Time again for the Apaloosa Festival out here in the Valley… so any Valley adjacent folks looking for a fun grown-up/kid-friendly event come on over.

    I think I mentioned last year that the host band, Scythian, are “kids” we’ve known for years… one of those musical families where the youngest three just went off and formed a band and have been making a living off of it for the last 15-years. After touring for 10-years they had built enough of a following to launch this annual project, which gets bigger each year.

    The headliners are what I might describe as Milennial Hipster Eclectic Americana… Spotify describes Dustbowl Revival (based in Venice, VA) as a “large string and brass ensemble whose coloful combination of swing, bluegrass, jazz and Americana has earned them a national following.” That’s about right for the Main Stage performances.

    During the day, the music trends a bit more Folk/Bluegrass with a celtic sub theme…

    Oh, and its also our 23rd anniversary on Sat… so Apaloosaversary.Report

    Today is my 53rd birthday (DGAF) and I am …working. Its OK celebrated last weekend with the kids and my mom. Between Aug 12th and Sept 6th we have seven birthdays so we celebrate them all together, Hubby probably has something planned tonight. Tomorrow is the draft for our family Fantasy Football league so dinner, the draft and then watch the first OU game. OSU played Oregon last night and won (sorry @Aaron Davis) so turning into a football weekend.

    Found out I have 25 pounds on my twin sister so I have till Thanksgiving when she will be back to shed the weight…Report
