09:06 – Kit sales remain strong. As usual at this time of year, I’m worried about running out of stock.
Barbara is cleaning house and doing her ironing this morning. Other than that, she has the day off. She’s heading out this afternoon to play golf with Bonnie.
More science kit stuff for me today. I’m going to try to get everything done downstairs so that I can spend Monday through Saturday upstairs. Our regular mailman is on vacation until Monday the 17th, and replacements are notorious for showing up any time of day and ignoring the sign on the mailbox that asks them to please ring the doorbell because there are packages awaiting pickup inside. Twice now, they’ve actually carried off that sign along with outgoing envelopes without bothering to ring the bell.
I also need to apply for Obamacare to replace our current medical insurance coverage, which disappears as of Barbara’s last day of work on September 30th. I can’t tell you how much I hate applying for Obamacare, but thanks to that SOB there’s no practical alternative. On the other hand, it will be nice to have Barbara retire from her firm and be available to help a lot more with our own business. I’ll finally have time to get a lot of stuff done that’s been on my to-do list for literally years.
