Now he's being told Mid September. I know, I know, I shouldn't complain. He IS working and so many other's are not. But we want to get to the next job and this packing and unpacking and living out of boxes is starting to drive me nuts. IF we get the job he wants next, we should be setteled for a couple of years. We'll rent a furnished trailer, most likely, and call that home for a bit. I would rather pick up the camper, but we are not headed that direction.

Just after I canceled meeting an internet friend. Jerry comes home and tells me we may have another week, after this one, here.... I just don't know what iti s with this job. Can't any one figure out when a job is finished and done with??

I "could" call her back, and let her know there is no change, or that there are new changes, but I'm half afraid that if I did, they would be changed again.. so I'll let it be like it is.

I am so lazy right now. There are things I should be doing., Like repack all the stuff on the bed, but I just don't see the reason if we are just going to paw through it again by next week. Ah well. I'll work on it. and be ready to leave this week.. and do a load of laundry this afternoon. and walk Rocky a couple of times. Jerry didn't even know how many hours he'll work today. We may eat at the truck stop, or at Wendy's... It is SSSOOOOOOOO Great for my diet (NOT !!) but .. that is life around here.

The end is near

Yes, the end of the job is near.. Since he wasn't let go this week, He's almost sure it will be this comeing up Friday. I will be spending the next week in packing up our stuff that is scattered about. We will have to rent another U-Haul to get the tools from here to there. We still have no idea where There will be, yet. We are considering going to the Farm and dealing with a couple of things, Set the lights up on the horse trailer, and use it to haul around our stuff. We will have to stay at Beth's house since there is no power at the farm. We hope that it will only be for a week as Jerry heard that the job he would like to go to in Georgia should be hiring Electriction starting around the 26th. That would be nice if we could get on that job as it's over a year and we will try to find a place to live instead of staying in a motel. I don't expect much, any more but it would be nice to do all my own cleaning and using all my own stuff.

I know this isn't a good picture, but you can see that the hallway is cluttered and it stays like this all week long. Sometimes its worst than this and in a way is a safety issue.. And walking Rocky past all this stuff and keeping his nose out of it,, is another challenge. Rocky is still very much puppy and wants to know about every thing he passes.

Out and About

Well. We both are enough over our colds to want to do a little sight seeing. Woke up this morning to a Thunderstorm. But, I let Jerry sleep, a bit/.After a late morning wake up, at 8 am. We watched a bit of tv. (can't even remember what was on) We went for breakfast at the truck stop across the interstate from the motel. It was so-so. I think I would have rather had "The Country Kitchen" . After breakfast, we went to Walmart for grocies.. This is one town that Walmart truly is cheeper than the local grocie store on produce and meats. I also picked up a couple more pairs of shorts to wear for what is left of this summer. my three pair just is not enough to comfortable get through a week. I don't do anything much. so I'm not really getting them dirty.

After returning to the motel, and putting away what few grocies we did get, we decided to try our hand at Geocaching.. First. you have to know how to work the GPS thing. We have a Megellon. I wanted a Garman but Walmart didn't have the one we wanted and Jerry wanted "it" NOW!. so we got what they had. So far.. bust. but we are not giving up. I will down-load the disk to my computer this week and read up on how to make the thing work. Jerry has spent almost two hours trying to figure out how to put in a Geocache location so we can go find it. Still working on it as I type this up.

We did drive around a bit. and Since I wanted to see the covered bridge that is near here. That is where we went, first. It's a fairly busy road. so we didn't get to take too many pictures at the bridge. But here are two good ones I think we got.

Our next stop was at the Hennepen Canal lock number 17. I had my hands full with Rocky and Jerry doesn't know my camera all tha well. He did get a picture of some milkweed pods I asked him to take. We may go back and get more pictures, later.

We drove around a bit. He asked, "Where to, now?" as we were headed back to the motel and I asked him to drive down the road between the shopping center next door , to see if it is somplace I would want to walk Rocky.. no. No sidewalks and too much traffic. But going around and only taking rights. we ended up back across the covered bridge, again.
