This loaf of potato bread, that I bought for T-Jay, has been sitting on my kitchen counter since April 23rd.  Yes, it has been opened and yes, it expired on April 26th.


No mold and it looks like I bought it today. 
I wonder when it will finally get moldy?  Or will it ever?


Sometimes I really miss eating bread, but only for a few minutes. 
After I think about all the chemicals and preservatives that are in the store bought breads, I change my mind.  Of course, being able to keep my weight down by not eating grains or sugar also helps. :) This also keeps me from baking my own.

The other day I caught that rat bastard of a bird flying into the space in my siding in front of the house.  All this time I thought the bird must be nesting in the attic, but T-Jay and I climbed up there the other day and did not find anything that looks like a nest.  Now we think it is nesting in the space between the siding and the wall of the house. The thumping, scratching, pecking noises were getting me up at a little after 5 every morning.  I rarely sleep in, but I sure want to be able to if I choose to. 
The noise that the bird was making has almost stopped now.  I wonder if that means she is sitting on the nest? 
Anyway, I talked to one of my co-workers last week.  He has agreed to come by with a long ladder so he can secure that piece of siding and block the opening so that this won't happen again. 

This week I am still on my crazy schedule and I'm hoping that by Monday I will be back to my 3PM to 9PM schedule.  This will free up time before I go in to chase cars, do inpections etc.  ...and I really need to finish cleaning the walls and carpet that I haven't had time to mess with.   I sure could use 4 or 5 extra hours per day!

Paying the utility bills this month was almost a pleasure.  Electric bill was $87.96, that's $70 down from May last year.  The water bill was $37.39 which is $60 less than May last year.  I'm absolutely anal about saving water and electric.  Not having a microwave or a dryer helps too, I'm sure.  The microwave left with the room mates and the dryer kicked the bucket about a month ago.

So far it hasn't been too hot out here.  Last night we were able to open the windows and the air conditioner didn't kick back on until around 3 this afternoon.  Looks like we will have another cool night tonight, which is awesome!! :)

I'm still waiting on my order of Naltrexone that I put in on the beginning of this month.  I along with two co-workers bought enough to get the free shipping.  When it comes in, I'll have a years worth.   I received an email last week telling me that the airline that this company uses is on strike in India and the shipment had to be rerouted and will be delayed.  I'm glad that I have enough to last me another couple of months. 

I did receive a bottle of 30 4.5 mg capsules that I keep for times when I can't be bothered with mixing or taking the liquid form.  This would come in handy if I had to stay the night somewhere or had to travel since the liquid form needs to be refrigerated.

Hopefully the shipment will come in the next few days.
