Went grocery shopping last night. Something like $225 in groceries. Went
to pay with my bank card.


Tried again with debit.


Tried bank card for another account.


I had to use my US Bank card from Iowa, which pissed me off, as I knew
the balance in there was dwindling. It was accepted, but now I've
overdrawn that acocunt, and I'm a bit frosted.

I just checked, and the other two accounts are flush with plenty of
cash. No good reason for the declination.

So last night I managed to:
1.) Go grocery shopping
2.) Fix the rake
3.) Rake the mulch into the trailer parking spot
4.) Roll the spot out with the lawn roller
5.) Unload the trailer
6.) Move the trailer to the new spot

And it only took a little bit of blood.

Unfortunately, the back steps from hell finally died and collapsed,
taking me on a bit of Mister Toad's Wild Ride. I actually managed to
stay upright, but Sadie was very disappointed that she can't use that
door anymore (at least until something is in place of those stairs).
The unfortunate bit is that I won't have time to build the deck this
weekend, because we start doing screen tests on Saturday, so the only
full day I'll have is Sunday, and I just don't think I can get the deck
built in a day.

I will probably end up putting the canopy up again because I really
can't afford to lose any more days due to rain. The downside of that is
that I have to move everything off of the old garage pad to someplace
, and I really don't have someplace else to put it right
