Discovered my basement flooded after a rainstorm when the sump pump failed. Knocked out the water heater and may have to call a service technician. About $300 worth of model rocket stuff destroyed. Don't know if the 2-liter bottles of soft drinks can be salvaged.

I'm in a lot of pain from a combination of my nerve problem, and burns across my back and shoulders.

I had hoped to go with another modeling friend, but finances prevented me from going. I am so depressed right now. :(

My model rocketry school highlights video lacked the epic soundtrack when shown at the general assembly on Saturday. Worked fine for my group's graduation event.  Checked my state website for photos but none exist of this coyote as yet. I know I was photographed by staff on Monday.

Just one week from my birthday, tonight I learn that I've been relieved of my long-time duties as public relations representative in the local chapter of a non-profit volunteer organization. Maybe not so bad as someone else can bear the burden I've carried these many years.

Had to suddenly detour around a bad auto accident yesterday. Saw a rescue helicopter land on the road ahead.

How long a bone heals usually depends on the severeity of the break and/or any other factors.

I'm well aware of this kobuk, it's just now barely starting to heal, I broke it in three different places.

Thursday can't seem to get here fast enough. That's when I have a doctor appointment. Not sure what I did, but my left shoulder hurts and has been painful for about a week and a half. Then last night, I must have slept wrong and hurt my lower back.  x_x  Ice packs and heating pads are not helping much, if at all, for either condition.  :'(

Just realized that my favorite furry con and my local Civil Air Patrol wing conference fall on the same weekend. Plus the latter is coming to my hometown.

My wing commander expects me to be at the conference. I'm a star attraction it seems. I passed on the last three and one of those coincided with the furcon, but it was out of town and featured no model rocketry panel. I may be overdue for some recognition too.

While driving to the drive-up window to get her prescription, someone hit my Mom's car. It's been in the shop most of the week and the loaner car is too scarey to drive.

Got sick last night. Probably because dinner didn't agree with me. :( Still felt kinda sick today. So did nothing for Halloween except rest, relax, watch a movie or two, and work on a model.

About two weeks ago, the son-in-law of some friends suddenly died.

This weekend, the microwave oven died.

Bad enough that I have to spend $1200 replacing the compressor for my AC unit but now my AC guy isn't returning my calls

So I may have to another AC guy who wont do the compressor part itself under warrenty (i'ts a long story)  and will cost me closer to $2000

The latest issue of Sport Rockety arrived yesterday, but this howler wasn't featured in the NARAM-59 coverage. My rockets only splashed down in "Little Icky". <sigh>
