|My new baby noise cancelling headphones|
It's taking me a bit longer than I anticipated to get back on my regular schedule after my California holiday.
Yesterday was very productive. I traveled thirty-nine miles to Dover to apply for a TSA pre check identification pass. That whole procedure was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I had to take my birth certificate and driver's license to prove who I was. When I was there my fingerprints were recorded. Now I await a notice in the mail with my pre check number identification. When I get that I apply that to my account at American Airlines and this will breeze me through the whole TSA security procedure. Like my ride Bill B. said, "If you only use it once a year, it is well worth it." I agree with him. This pass cost me $85 and is good for five years. If I use a different carrier, then I would have to get a different number. However, I don't plan on using a different carrier other than American Airlines.

Also on yesterday I purchased a Bose noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones. My days of being tortured by baby noise on flights is at an end. I've already paired the Bose headphones to my iPhone. Tomorrow I go to the Bose store to pair the headphones to my Mac Notebook. Ah, the pleasure of taking a long flight watching and listening to a movie or just music.
I thought I was finally back on schedule today but I had another setback. I rarely use my dishwasher. The last time I used it was over three months ago when I put a load of dishes I got from thrift stores to sanitize them. I thought I would empty the dishwasher tonight. I opened it up and immediately noticed that the dishes were clammy. A wooden spoon had a living organism on it. Something was wrong. After emptying the dishwasher I notice that the water had not drained out. WTF? I rarely use that dishwasher and her I got this problem. I'm especially concerned because our neighbors had a leak in their dishwasher and now are undergoing a floor and rug replacement from the damage. The damage was extensive. Bill noticed the leak by a wet spot on their basement rug. When he told me about it I noticed that the water was dripping form the ceiling above. Where the kitchen sink was located. When our neighbors returned they had to call Service Pro. Lots of damage. Now they have a big repair job, so big my neighbor is staying with someone else until it is completed. Bill was worried we would have the same problem Thank goodness we didn't but we don't want to take any chances so he turned off the water valve.

As my long time friend Larry and I often commiserate, once we get something done and look to "coast" for a while, something else comes up. I called my appliance repairman. Hopefully this repair won't cost too much.
Then tonight I noticed that I still haven't received a lamp that I ordered from a store in Palm Springs. I called and yes, they had not shipped it yet. Hmmmm. They said they would send it out tonight.
Now I have to get my papers together to do my taxes. I usually the them done by now but I haven't even started yet this year. I'm slipping folks. By increments, but I am slipping.
My apologies to my favorite bloggers that I haven't read or comment on their blogs. I'm behind but I hope to catch up this week.
I'm still here folks. The daffodils are up and I can feel spring in the air. Life is good.
