Having a hard time coming up with something to write about today. I mean there is the basic stuff that's always sort of hanging around my existence-- the Big Broken Box™, cleaning, getting rid of stuff, being sick, etc.-- but nothing really new or of any particular import today.

In a way that's a good thing, because it means that nothing horribly bad happened (yet). There is a squeaky noise coming from under the passenger-side front of the 'Sploder when I go over bumps, so that's something I need to look at. The snow is mostly gone from the yard now, enough to see all of the crap that's kind of strewn around from the moving of snow and all, and the backyard is a big mud pit. I should probably get some grass seed and lay it down but I don't know if it's too early since the frost hasn't thawed underground yet. The top couple of inches are pretty okay, and maybe that's good enough. Or maybe I should just get some straw bales and spread those around, or a truckload of sand & gravel. Right now I have scrap cardboard down, and that's working for the time being. Certainly it's not going to hold up for long.

The ultimate solution is going to be concrete for a garage and patio area, and landscaping to deal with runoff and drainage. That's not gonna happen real soon, at least not in the next few weeks of muddy doggy foots.

And oh yeah, I still have a bunch of twisted steel tubing that's pretty much destined for scrap hanging out in the backyard. I should probably do something about that before somebody else jumps on my ass.

Sleep now. Or work, which is a lot like sleep, except for the sleep part.
